Jennifer walters setup question.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have been playing She-Hulk against Klaw and was wondering if she can use her I Object ability durng setup?

Here are the specifics. 

Step 1 of set up: place identity alter-ego side face up. In my case Jennifer Walters

Step 10 of setup: resolve scheme set up. Klaw's main scheme 1A says to reveal the defense network side scheme. Defense network has a when revealed effect that places 1(per player) threat on itself, in addition to it's starting threat. 

"I Object" states: "When threat would be placed on a scheme, prevent 1 of that threat."

I know that, in normal play, when a side scheme with that 'when revealed' ability comes out 'I Object' works. The question is, does it work in setup?

Unfortunately not. From page 25 of the online Rules Reference/FAQ (v1.3):

Quote

Q: If threat is placed on a scheme during game setup, does Jennifer Walters’s ability trigger?
A: No. Abilities that do not have the ”Setup” timing trigger cannot resolve during game setup.

It also says on the card (Limit once per Round)

That isn't really a limiting factor in this case because they could have easily ruled that setup counts as part of the first round for once per round abilities.
