Welcome another edition of Awesome Clix, where we showcase some of the best Golden Age characters that's still competitive in today's Modern Age games! Today we highlight possibly the best Probability Control character in the game today -- the Fantastic Forces Scarlet Witch!
Just take a look at this glorious piece for just 62 points!
She was pretty potent when she first came out, but in today's game (where Probability Control, Perplex, and Outwit are based on range) she's a beast; you're hard pressed to find any utility/support figure with a 10 range these days.
Probability control + 10 range is pretty potent already, but what adds icing to the cake is her Stealth and team ability! The strategy is pretty simple: move her on high ground on hindering terrain (where she can use Stealth and stay hidden) and just start forcing everyone to reroll their dice! That Team Ability lets her see through all hindering and Stealth, letting her handle all those pesky teams!
Edit: FANT0MEX made a good point below. Stealth now only works during your opponent's turn, so the only real use for the TA would be so that (A) she can move freely over hindering terrain or (B) she wants to shoot someone who is stealthed on her turn. Under this circumstance, I'd say that the ROOKIE version is best version to use, which makes it even cheaper to field her!
(Remember, back when Fantastic Forces came out, Stealth worked all the time, during every turn)
If you want something a little cheaper, you can go with the EXP version, who still keeps the 10 range and full dial of Probability Control! However, you lose out on that Ultimates Team Ability, so she can't deal with stealthy characters, but she'd still be very useful to help you re-roll your own dice (and she still has that 1 click of stealth).
And finally we have the super cheap rookie version. If just want a 10-Range PC'er to reroll your own dice, then this is going to be your best choice. The Brotherhood TA gives her free movement to get her into position, and she still keeps her 1 click of Stealth. If you had a choice between the Rookie and Vet, I'd definitely go with the rookie version!
Edit: Note from FANT0MEX: "Your opponent only uses Stealth during your turn, so you could still reroll their attack rolls regardless of whether they have Stealth or not."
Congrats Scarlet Witch, you're this week's Awesome Clix!
