So because she is considered a citizen, she is completely gimped by her own text if there are 2 heroes playing? Isn't that just stupid?

Given that you're supposed to play with a minimum of three heroes? No, not really. If H is 2, hardly anyone does damage. THe Matriarch or the Operative's retaliation (H-2) is equally shut down and 'stupid'.

If you are only playing with 2 heroes, you are still supposed to set H to 3 to make the H mechanic work. Generally it will be very difficult to win most battles in this case, however.

Well, if you played by the rules, that wouldn't be much of an issue.

The whole point of the H is that it is a scale mechanic, presumably one would employ such a thing to allow for different numbers of players. Just seems rather redundant when it doesn't actually seem to do that.

It does allow for different numbers of heroes to scale, in this case 3-5, which is the number provided for in the rules. What you are trying to do is play a variant and you would need to adjust H accordingly. H actually solved a lot of the scale issues the first edition had.

I agree. Some people also seems to find reading the rulebook rather redundant.

The rules for the 'H' system are written much like many of the cards - while not quite as explicit in their intentions as they could be, the acceptable number of heroes is written out.

"The 'H' icon helps the game balance itself based on the number of players. It always equals the number of heroes in the current game you are playing, regardless of whether those heroes are active or incapacitated. Thus, in a game with three heroes fighting the villain, 'H' equals 3. In a four hero game, 'H'=4, and in a five hero game, 'H'=5."

Notice that only 3, 4 and 5 heroes are mentioned. Since they did not mention 2 heroes, and stopped before 6, it can be understood that it was an explicit boundary.
