Thread: Retaliation and non-While Active question

    Retaliation and non-While Active question

    On cards with abilities like Retaliation, does the character have to be active in order for Retaliation to take effect? For example, if I have Superman with Retaliation, but I haven't purchased him yet, and Zatanna gets knocked out, will my opponent take 1 damage? Also, for cards like Mysterio: Francis Klum, where their card lists an ability, but does not say that the character has to be active, can you use that ability? If not, then why doesn't the card say that the character has to be active, like Mysterio: Quentin Beck?

    Most game text, other than fields for free and global effects, require the character to be active. The "active" requirement on some abilities isn't as much saying that a character must be in the field to get the effect so much as saying you only get this benefit once, no matter how many copies are fielded.

    Ohhh. Thank you very much, that makes sense.
