We just played our first game and noticed that there is nothing much in the rules about environments. One of our first environments was The Kraken with 15 HP. Since it was an environment card, The Wraith took it out with an grappling hook. Is this really correct? Or our Environment Cards with HP something more than just an Environment Card?

Another EC question was one (Collapsing Hallway?) that said something like "Deal 3 damage to all targets." We interpreted it as damaging anything out there with HP, heroes and villains alike. Was this correct?

That's how my group plays both the grappling hook (i.e. if it's an environment card, it's a valid target) and the global damage (i.e. if you have health, you get hit, including other environment cards).

Seriously, if anyone can figure out how to neutralize a kraken with a grappling hook, it's Batman Wraith.

In our group, Wraith has already twice been the slayer of Grand Warlord Voss's fleet of battlecruisers. Or at the very least, she was the one who locked them down.

That is absolutely correct. An environment card is always an environment card, and can be affected by anything that affects environment cards. Likewise, anything with HP is a target, and can therefore be damaged by anything that deals damage to a target (and is also removed from play and put into the trash if it is ever reduced to 0 HP)

"Another EC question was one (Collapsing Hallway?) that said something like "Deal 3 damage to all targets." We interpreted it as damaging anything out there with HP, heroes and villains alike. Was this correct?"

Absolutely. Many environment cards can affect the villain as well as the environment. The Kraken, for example, deals its damage to the non-environment target with the lowest HP, which may well be the villain (or at least a minion)

There is a duck in every game. You may not see it, but it's there.

That is a very key thing to remember. The Kraken is an excellent minion wiper if you leave one alive on your turn to get tentacled. The only thing you have to fear is another Kraken being drawn.

It's also very thematic. How many movies have the villain's lackey being the one to show you how the monster works?
