I don't like to use words like "overpowered" or "break the game" because those words usually mean you haven't figured out how to counter, but holy crap!

Margo has a card called "The Big Break" (coincidentally?) which lets her reveal the top three cards of the villain deck, take any bystanders and defeat any villains for free. Anything else (which will mostly be Strike and Twists) go to the bottom of the deck!

She then puts a bystander on top, which could be good or bad, depending (but bystanders usually feel like breathers to me).

Sure, it costs 8 and there's only one of them, but the other big cards I saw for the heroes I was playing with didn't seem nearly as powerful.

It may be that other Margo cards aren't quite as useful, and that balances it out. There's also the fact that there are cards that reshuffle the villain deck, which hinders the effectiveness of bottom decking the nuisance cards, but I cannot imagine this card being anything but top priority when it hits the purchase pool.

I found it very useful with the Trying to kill Uncle Chu scheme because it sent Uncle Chus to the bottom of the deck and stopped them flooding the city so much.

We've found almost all the BT rares to be pretty powerful. Some of them, like Henry Swanson's, are practically gamebreakers.

Also, Margo doesn't have any Combat.

Well, for this card, she doesn't need any.
