Arsenalroy2k here again, still filling in for Dr. Morbius. This time, it's ladies night at Comic Accurate! We're going to build a team based off a particularly fun story in this special that came out in 2008.

mod note: In order to not fill up the front page, I divided AR2K's article into two parts. This is the second one

In the lead story of this one-shot, entitled "Un-Enchanted Evening", writer Paul Tobin and artist Colleen Coover focus on Mary Jane Watson and her friends Millie the Model and Patsy Walker (aka Hellcat) in an adventure where they end up playing a part in a battle with The Enchantress. See, Enchantress wants some new minions, so she decides she's going to brainwash some superheroines into serving her. How? Enchanted shampoo. Now it's up to an assemblage of some models and the female members of The Avengers, The X-Men, The Fantastic Four and The Defenders to foil her plans.

For those of you that stuck around after you read the words "enchanted shampoo", I thank you. Now let's see the team...

(Speed) Dark Disciple: Clea can use Mind Control and Phasing/Teleport.


Now this team comes out to 286. And yeah, I know there's the MJ figure coming out in Web of Spider-Man, but the choice came down to fifteen points for a figure with Willpower that can't do much else or five points for a wild card that can use either X-Men or FF to heal someone. I opted for the latter. Also, I know we're missing Millie the Model, but I wouldn't hold my breath anticipating her to be made into Clix form.

Now with fourteen points to play with, I'd suggest Unstoppable right off the bat for She-Hulk. And with your leftover nine points? I dunno. Throw a Protected on Clea and hope for the best.

Amora's servants weren't pretty, but they were cheap and documented.

But what about Enchantress? In the story, she has a few demon and troll underlings that do her bidding. Why not put them together to make another team? Then, get a friend to play one side while you play the other and see which team will truly come out on top?

Team: Mystics

(Speed) Enchanting: Enchantress can use Mind Control. If she does, she takes 1 damage for each 200 points of the successfully hit targets' combined point value, instead of each 100 points.
(Defense) Devotion: Enchantress can use Mastermind and Toughness.

(Damage) Minion: March to Ragnarok!: When a friendly character named Surtur is within 8 squares, Fire Demon can use Charge and modifies its attack value by +1

Enchantress, two Fire Demons and two Rock Trolls come out to 297 points. Sure, the minions won't get the bonus from their special power, but it's not like this team is totally lacking. Enchantress gets some Mastermind fodder and the minions don't necessarily have a bunch of damage reducers to worry about on opposing characters, but even if they do, Enchantress' Perplex can help. But the heroines have Outwit, Probability Control, Barrier and an equally strong mix of ranged and close combat fighters.

So which team wins? MJ and friends or Enchantress' army? Play 'em with your buddies and let me know which group truly has "girl power".

Next time, we'll stay with a contemporary theme, but this one will be much more eeeeeeeevil.

This may be fun, though the Vet Hellcat could be a better choice with her 4 Dam.

Thanks!

This was an entertaining enough read-through that I kinda want to try the 2-player game now.

Gotta go hunt down some Golden Age...

Ah, magic shampoo. I keep hoping that my kids are using the magic shampoo, and I can get them to clean up after themselves.

Nice write-up.

Is is bad that the first thing I noticed is not the big boobs but the 4.99 cost on the comic? Then I notice the big boobs and think, REALLY they're all DD's? Wow I must be getting old when even I feel the need for them to tone down the boobage in comics...

Not dynamite, but could still be useful.

Blasphemy!!!! Heretic!!! Stone him!!!!!!

LOL....only kidding. Sometimes the "boobage" can get a little over the top, but to quote Grampa Simpson: "That's the way we likes it!" :laugh:

Oooooooo.......Powergirl.........

Thanks, this story just sent my estrogen level through the roof.

I am now barely twice as macho as an average male.

Hehehehe I said boobies..... it's just said state of affairs when even *I* feel like a creepy old guy when I look at that cover.

Otherwise good topic for clicks though.

I <3 Colleen Coover.

I love her stuff too. Her First Class stuff was adorable. But word of advice to anyone who isn't familiar with her earlier works: She's done some very adult-themed stuff. So... Google with caution, depending on who you're around when online.

Sub in R Boom-Boom for Millie the Model

If I was really inclined for substitutions, I probably would have just thrown in the Movie Star bystander because it's the closest thing to a model.
