General description:
This card is handy, you can use it to find any card (location, character, plot twist) by activation .. you can plan your high drop characters/resources out for mid way or later in the game.

I use him to pull out some nasty characters.

Strategies and game play:
He makes a nice target because he helps you find your drops easyly .. if you reinforce him and can keep a cosmic counter on him .. or conceal him hes very fustrateing to your enemies.

Combos with other cards:
Use him to pull out pasifacation (plot twist) and/or Frankie Raye Nova the 3 or 5 drop, and if you can keep useing him .. pull out something hard like galactus.

Ways to counteract it:
Unfortunatly hes not very strong. You may only get to use him a few times unless you conceal him, equip him .. or waste some plot twists on him.

He can find your great cards.
He is a nice distraction.

Can make you a target for the rest of the game. (you must reveal all cards)
Can waste your effects if you try to keep him in play
Not strong defensively at all.

Its available in a Foil version, Silver surfer also is a 5 and 7 drop I belive.

Artwork and aesthetics:
The artwork is okay .. has nothing to do with the ability of the card.

Overall rating:
7 outta 10, I have 4 of him in my deck. Depending on the deck you build he's well worth it.

Good overview of the card. The author isn't here anymore, but does anyone else use him effectively in decks other than Heralds of Galactus?
