This week’s one-shot against the variant Spite villain, Agent of Gloom, felt like a slog in the making. I took advice from the forums and used Wraith’s Infrared Eyepiece and Dark Visionary’s Turmoil to put victims on the bottom of Spite’s deck, and then used Super Scientific Tachyon’s Experiment power to put those victims into play. Within two turns, Spite had flipped to his Broken Vessel side, with a single drug up, which reduced the first instance of damage done to him on a turn by -2.
After the first few turns of Spite dealing damage, it became excitement by repetition. Spite’s damage was reduced by Stun Bolts and Twist the Ether, or blocked entirely with Hypersonic Assault and Throat Jab. Sky-Scraper dealt irreducible damage with Catch a Ride or Compulsion Canister — and then recycled Compulsion Canister. And the environment of Omnitron IV was a non-issue thanks to Visionary spamming Mass Levitation, along with Wraith’s Mega-Computer.
