How to Defeat La Capitan: La Capitan’s deck revolves around discarding hero cards and placing them under her villain card. If she gets three cards under her villain card, she flips over. You don’t want her to do that.

Several heroes (Omnitron-X for example) have game mechanics that allow them to destroy equipment cards, so if there are any hero equipment cards under La Capitan’s villain card, you can thin out the stack. You could pair this tactic with manipulating the villain deck – which is always a good thing.

If La Capitan does flip, you’ll want to use cards and powers that have multiple occurrences of damage. The hero cards beneath her villain card block any amount of damage. Focus on getting rid of those cards by striking her several times.

La Capitan also has a lot of villain targets in her deck. You’ll want at least one hero with some great global effects to mow down these guys. Tempest, Tachyon, and Omnitron-X have plenty of damage to burn.
