I'm new to the game, but, with the Dark City and Fantastic 4 expansions, I thought I'd try an Advanced Solo game--completely random.

Mr. Sinister decided to open up Portals all over the city, ably assisted by Skrulls and Sentinels.

SHIELD Agents desperately put out a call for help...and three super-heroes responded: Nick Fury, Invisible Woman, and Bishop.

I started playing through the adventure and fast became worried that I was not going to be able to prevail. Mr. Sinister first opened up a portal near himself, increasing his strength to 9. Then he began capturing Bystanders, increasing his strength even more. I figured I was toast, because my team couldn't garner strong enough attacks to challenge him.

Then Invisible Woman came up with a plan. She would lead teams of SHIELD Agents into Sinister's HQ to rescue the Bystanders, thereby weakening him enough for the others to challenge him.

It worked like a charm. Invisible Woman and her team snatched all the Bystanders, and Bishop charged in with a powerful attack that slammed Sinister. The team repeated the tactic several times and saved the city. Very cool!

Not sure if solo rules are different, but kinda sounds like you were rescuing Bystanders captured by Sinister with IW. "Rescue a Bystander" means draw a card from the Bystander deck and put it in your VP pile, not take a Bystander captured by an Enemy and move it to your VP pile.

Unless you're saying IW emptied out of the Bystander deck, which, while possible, not sure you have the time in a solo game.
