General description:
Normally I would laugh an 86 point figure with only 6 clix of life right off the map, but Talia is not to be scoffed at.

Uses:
This is exactly how I used her. I set her behind two objects and proceeded to outwit and psychic blast my opponent into oblivion.

Strategies and game play:
With an 8 range and both the Batman and Superman TA, I just put her behind cover and blast away. The reason I didn't put her in cover is twofold:

1) any opponent that can't fly has to stop when coming in contact with the hindering terrain she is standing behind (Batman TA thank you), which gives her an extra chance to shoot them without the hindering penalty (Superman TA thank you) before they can get to her.

2) Her movement is not restricted if she needs to bolt.

Combos with other miniatures:
Well Fire and Ice (RCE), Jason Blood (prob control), Clark Kent (perplex++), Black Flash and one of the checkmate figures with RCE worked nicely. Other combos are low point figures or pogs to take the mastermind damage. If you can perplex her damage up she can be very scary!

Ways to counteract it:
The best way to protect yourself is have a flyer drop a high defense brute in her lap. HSS is good too, but you have to keep out of site of her outwit!

Strengths/Pros:
8 range, psychic blast with a 10 attack to start with, mastermind to keep that attack and Psychic blast going. I almost forgot that later in her dial she gets both running shot and RCE, and combat reflexes with a 16 defense means it's time to jump into hindering terrain and make the opponent get up close to try and take her out.

Weaknesses/Cons:
6 clix of life...that's it. Oh, and her TA's can't be copied by wild card.

Artwork and aesthetics:
That tight aesthetically pleasing grip on her weapon is sweet, but with a dial like that and two TA's, she could look like Granny Goodness and still turn my head.

Overall rating:
I give Talia a ten and put her in my "Keep them handy" case.

I just played a game with her, it went well. I used deathstroke, Jason Blood, and The Thing. I used The Thing to knock down walls to create hindering terrain. She worked well until my opponent sacrificed one of his figures and rushed me. Which locked me in Close Combat. She still worked well I pushed her a lot when I could take advantage. I ended up winning but it was a close game. Thanks for the tips.
