In advance of the premier of She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, we've gone and gave Ms. Walters a bit of an in-game ability makeover, available NOW! This is a pure ability upgrade, and lets just get into it!

Health/Match Damage
No change

Old
Settlement - 9 Blue AP
She-Hulk flexes her legal muscle, striking a deal to balance the scales of justice. Randomly selects up to 2 enemy Protect, Strike, or Attack tiles and redistributes them between both teams. Friendly redistributed tiles are improved by 28. (Max level Empowers 87)
  • Level 2: Friendly tiles are improved by 34. (Max level Empowers 104)
  • Level 3: Friendly tiles are improved by 39. (Max level Empowers 122)
  • Level 4: Selects up to 3 tiles (Odd tiles are always friendly)
  • Level 5: Friendly tiles are improved by 62. (Max level Empowers 191)

Settlement - 9 Blue AP
She-Hulk flexes her legal muscle, striking a deal to balance the scales of justice. Randomly selects up to 3 enemy Protect, Strike, or Attack tiles and redistributes them between both teams (Odd tiles are always friendly). Empowers redistributed tiles by 33. (Max level Empowers 104)
  • Level 2: Friendly tiles are improved by 40. (Max level Empowers 125)
  • Level 3: Selects up to 5 tiles.
  • Level 4: Friendly tiles are improved by 46. (Max level Empowers 146)
  • Level 5: Redistributes all tiles. Empowers friendly tiles by 73. (Max level Empowers 229)
When She-Hulk came around, stealing enemy tiles was something pretty rare. But then, so were enemy SAP tiles to begin with. In today's meta, SAP tiles are more numerous, but this ability didn't keep pace at all into 4-Star land. This made it so that the ability wasn't useful when Jen got max champed versus an equivalent use of Hair Meddle from Medusa. Medusa would swap up to half the board and steal ALL the tiles, with tile empowerment as well. This change brings Ms. Walters into the same arena, potentially stealing even more tiles than Medusa AND empowering them more strongly, but not causing the cascades and attendant damage/AP gain that the Inhuman Queen brings to the table.

Furious Charge - 6 Green AP
No change

While a bit niche, this ability is still pretty powerful when used by players, and can be strong when used by the AI as well. As such, didn't see a need for improvement here.

Old
Power of Attorney - 9 Red AP
She-Hulk strikes the ground, causing the earth to shift under her enemies' feet. Destroys 10 tiles from the bottom of the board and deals 195 damage to the enemy team. Destroyed tiles don't deal damage or generate AP. (Max level 609 damage)
  • Level 2: Deals 283 damage. (Max level 883 damage)
  • Level 3: Causes a bigger shock-wave, destroying 13 tiles.
  • Level 4: Deals 404 damage. (Max level 1261 damage)
  • Level 5: Destroys 16 tiles and deals 527 damage. (Max level 1644 damage)
New
Power of Attorney - 9 Red AP
She-Hulk strikes the ground, causing the earth to shift under her enemies' feet. Destroys 10 tiles from the bottom of the board and deals 223 damage to the enemy team. Destroyed tiles don't deal damage or generate AP. (Max level 695 damage)
  • Level 2: Deals 323 damage. (Max level 1008 damage)
  • Level 3: Causes a bigger shock-wave, destroying 13 tiles.
  • Level 4: Deals 462 damage. (Max level 1439 damage)
  • Level 5: Destroys 16 tiles and deals 602 damage. (Max level 1877 damage)
While the ability itself is pretty interesting, doing something along with team damage that isn't really replicated by any other character, the damage itself was pretty anemic compared to other available AoE abilities. So it received a modest upgrade, getting about 15% increased damage while retaining its cascade capability from the board shake.

We hope you enjoy the new and improved Jen Walters. Take her new upgraded power set out for a spin today!
