Character Focus – She-Hulk (Part 2)

In Part One we took a look at She-Hulk and her cards.  In this part we are going to take a deck for each aspect through the gauntlet of scenarios on Expert difficulty and see how we get on.

The scenarios we are playing are as follows:

  • Rhino (Bomb Scare)
  • Klaw (Masters of Evil)
  • Ultron (Under Attack)
  • Mutagen Formula (Goblin Gimmicks)

If we beat a scenario, we’ll move onto the next one.  If we lose to a scenario, we will try that one again until we either beat it or lose three times.  The first aspect that we are going to use is Leadership!


Scenario Module Results Rounds
Rhino Bomb Scare WIN 5
Klaw Masters of Evil WIN 12
Ultron Under Attack LOSS 9
Ultron Under Attack LOSS 7
Ultron Under Attack WIN 14
Mutagen Formula Goblin Gimmicks WIN 14

I beat all the scenarios with not much difficulty!  Weirdly, Ultron was actually the most difficult (Hawkeye and Squirrel Girl usually make short work of Ultron drones).  Nothing much else to say about Leadership other than it made up for She-Hulk’s weaknesses nicely.

Quinjet should get a mention as I found it had a nice interaction with Hellcat, but was also good to drop Vision or Falcon into play.

Rhino Bomb Scare LOSS 5
Rhino Bomb Scare WIN 7
Klaw Masters of Evil WIN 12
Ultron Under Attack WIN 11
Mutagen Formula Goblin Gimmicks LOSS 8
Mutagen Formula Goblin Gimmicks LOSS 8
Mutagen Formula Goblin Gimmicks WIN 12

A slight wobble against Rhino (he does scheme out occasionally via Advance), but overall a really good run.  Took three attempts to beat Mutagen Formula, but that’s a scenario that can quickly get out of hand.

Hall of Heroes was absolutely fantastic in this deck, particularly in the Ultron and Mutagen Formula scenarios where I was able to use it to draw three cards every time that I started the round in Alter Ego form.

Another card that put in a lot of work was Battle Fury.  The most obvious way to use this card is in a similar manner to One-Two Punch where you use your basic attack and in this case defeat a minion.  However, you can also use it after defeating a minion with an event like Relentless Assault, something you might want to do if She-Hulk was exhausted (particularly via encounter card effects like Exhaustion or Sonic Boom).


Scenario Module Results Rounds
Rhino Bomb Scare WIN 8
Klaw Masters of Evil LOSS 11
Klaw Masters of Evil LOSS 6
Klaw Masters of Evil LOSS 8
Ultron Under Attack LOSS 13
Ultron Under Attack LOSS 5
Ultron Under Attack LOSS 5
Mutagen Formula Goblin Gimmicks WIN 10

I put as many stun effects into the deck as I could, along with a good amount of ally support (Med Team and Honorary Avenger).  As you can see from the results above, it didn’t pan out very well.

I might need to go back to the drawing board with regards to my Protection decks, but I just don’t see the defence builds being effective in solo.  I’m happy to be corrected though!

My worst performance so far in this Character Focus series!  I’m not really sure what went wrong, as her biggest weakness is lack of thwarting capability and Justice should make up for that.

I think that during this run I drew Shadow of the Past nearly every game, sometimes very early on and She-Hulk’s nemesis set is particularly brutal.

I’m also willing to admit that I was probably on tilt and made some poor decisions during several of the games.  I’ll definitely revisit this character and aspect combo in the future to do justice to it (pun intended).


Rank Aspect Wins Losses
1st Leadership 4 2
2nd Aggression 4 3
3rd Protection 2 6
4th Justice 2 8

Another character that benefited greatly from the excellent Leadership allies!  They really shored up all of her weaknesses.

Aggression was my second best, yet again achieving a 4-3 record (so far most of my Aggression decks have been 4-3).  Aggression is probably my favourite aspect, so I’m slightly biased towards it.

Protection and Justice both had terrible records for me.  These scores were so poor that I’m definitely going to revisit these decks at a later date.  Sorry to fans of Protection and Justice!

Rank Scenario Wins Losses
1st Rhino 4 1
2nd Mutagen Formula 3 5
3rd Ultron 3 7
4th Klaw 2 6

So Rhino managed to grab one win this time (well done, Rhino!), but Klaw won overall, being the toughest villain to beat this time.

Here is my Character Focus league table so far.

Character Focus League Table Overall
Rank Character Best Aspect Wins Losses
1st Captain Marvel Justice 16 9
2nd Spider-Man Leadership 14 11
3rd Iron Man Aggression 13 14
4th She-Hulk Leadership 12 19

And here’s my table for character & aspect combo results so far:

Record (W/L) Character & Aspect
4-0 Spider-Man (Leadership)
4-2 Captain Marvel (Justice), Captain Marvel (Leadership), Captain Marvel (Protection), Iron Man (Aggression), She-Hulk (Leadership)
4-3 Captain Marvel (Aggression), She-Hulk (Aggression), Spider-Man (Aggression)
3-3 Iron Man (Justice), Spider-Man (Justice)
3-4 Iron Man (Leadership)
3-5 Iron Man (Protection), Spider-Man (Protection)
2-6 She-Hulk (Protection)
2-8 She-Hulk (Justice)

After playing 31 games with She-Hulk I can honestly say that I’m not in much of a rush to return to her!  Even if I were to use the aspects that I did better with (Leadership and Aggression), I didn’t really enjoy using her very much (sorry She-Hulk fans!).

Anyway, it’s time for me to move onto another character, which will be the last one from the core set, Black Panther!

Cheers,

Tim
