This is Honey Badger, another character for Marvel Crisis Protocol. She’s another that I was only vaguely aware of prior to her release for the game; I think that she’s either a clone of Wolverine, or even more confusingly a clone of another clone of Wolverine. As befits one of the Wolverines, she is tightly focused on fighting, and as a two threat character it’s expected that she’ll only really be good at one part of the game. So, although Honey Badger is indeed rather excellent at stabbing people (and due to her Too Dangerous To Ignore superpower, enabling others to stab them too) she has huge limitations on her scenario game. I quite like that she has special interactions with her sister / clone / something, X-23 (about whom more later), which allows each to move when the other is injured; I quite often consider taking them as a kind of five threat double team. At that kind of price they could probably fit nicely in a lot of rosters. So far I’ve tried them in X-Men, where they are OK but not great and Gareth has used them in X-Force where they repeatedly murder my teams.
As I didn’t really know anything about Honey Badger it was an easy choice to follow the card art for her colour scheme, and I think that she looks good. I’m certainly getting a lot of practice painting yellow with all these superheroes! I actually find that her face sculpting is a bit shallow and her claws are thin enough to be a bit bendy. But those are mild criticisms and I had a lot of fun painting her.
Next on the painting table: Gambit.
