[top]Clarifications

  • While active” effects are static effects that are in play as long as that character is in the Field Zone. The Attack Zone is a subset of the Field Zone, so “While active” effects are still active when a character is in the Attack Zone. “While active” effects are not cumulative, i.e. the effects only occur once regardless of how many of that character is active in a player’s Field/Attack Zone (however, if both players have the same character active, the effects will occur once for each player).[1]
  • Professor X: Charles Francis Xavier requires the opposing player to pay life to circumvent his effect. This 2 life is considered a cost and not the equivalent of taking damage. As a result, character effects that depend upon the opposing player taking damage would not trigger (e.g., Hulk: Green Goliath).[2]
  • Professor X's ability cannot be overridden by actions and character effects which allow fielding dice for free. An affected player would have to pay 2 life and then would be able to field characters, including any that could be fielded for free through an effect.[3]

Ability Nullification
  • Loki: Loki Laufeyson: While Loki is active, once per turn you may pay to deal 1 damage to a character die. That character die loses all of its abilities until end of turn. You may use this ability whenever you could use a Global Ability.
  • Prismatic Spray: Lesser Spell: All of your opponent's characters lose all their card text until the end of the turn.
