I was looking at this expansion and the Char licenses struck me as being quite powerful. It's basic ability is two other abilities (cod and lobster), which in general would mean that Char licenses are strictly better than the other two. The abilities also seem rather scattershot, in addition to (again) taking from the cod and lobster licenses.

What am I missing about this? Are these abilities not as powerful as I think they are?

I've found them to be quite powerful, yes. In theory, though, as long as opponents are paying attention, you won't be able to get a good license like char cheaply. The auction should theoretically help balance out licenses that would otherwise be more or less powerful. That's generally been my experience.

Char has the Captains portion of Lobster sure, but Lobster will still out produce it card flow wise if you can get that 4th captain out. Come to think of it, go Char + Lobster and enjoy!
