    Yes, and also, his green can be used to destroy a column that one of his CD's is in.

    I have to wait on this guy, on paper I think he is solid but under-leveled he is not working yet.  Characters with true heal will always be useful and he will be no exception but he reminds me of Agent Venom at the moment he is not good at low level so far.

    Chain Lightning seems to work pretty well with large strike tiles (at least, briefly) as each column gets a dip in the strike pool. Fortified Strikes would presumably be best.

    Played Chain Lightning against Sentry in a DDQ node. Waited for World Rupture to be played and there were enemy CD's in each column. 6 columns were destroyed. Hilarious!

    I think Wiccan is more of a consideration depending on who you will be Against, more so than who else to bring along. If the enemy team spawns a lot of special tiles, including countdown, he can be great / fun. 

    He's a natural 3rd in a Medusa Carnage team. There will always be plenty of enemy specials on the board to make his Chain Lightning work quite well. Medusa also builds up more green for him from enemy attack tile matches.

    Wiccan will tank blue of course but probably not yellow over Medusa. You need him tanking when in Demiurge form so that you get the AP and damage from his line-breaking match-3's. 

    Outside of Carndusa, He plays well enough with any red-purple-black team setup. Don't laugh, but I've had good runs with Wiccan and Elektra. Usually when I want to steal enemy specials with her purple, because she then she also creates low level enemy strike tiles for Wiccan to destroy with his green. Once in Demiurge mode it's super easy to gather more purple, and black for her Shadowstep. She then avoids all enemy damage, and Wiccan can heal with his yellow. (caution though, when Demiurge, he will force himself to the front and not allow Elektra to shadowstep well). 

    Other considerations:
    Along with Mockingbird since you will be gaining lots of AP any enemy match-4 could trigger a free power. 
    Brock Venom is decent with Wiccan and Medusa since you'll proc an enemy protect tile each time her CD hits.
    When 3*s are boosted: Hawkguy, Patch, 3lektra
