Mystic Empowerment (Dr. Strange's Defenders Leadership) And "Retaliation" Style Attacks


Recommended Posts

I recently learned that paying to use Dr. Strange's defenders leadership on a rapid fire attack only affects that single "volley"; similarly the same is true for area and beam style attacks: Only one of the attacks in the collection of that action can be empowered. However lets say Daredevil uses Man Without Fear or Venom uses So Many Snacks in retaliation to an attack made against them, can they pay to use the mystic empowerment leadership on their retaliation attack?

I'm fairly certain they can, but wanted to be certain and haven't seen anything on this yet. Thanks!
(Fingers crossed since DD really needs some help. RIP my Beamfenders list though...)

To clarify, it's my current understanding of Mystic Empowerment that:

1. When used on a rapid fire or ricochet attack, only one of those attacks will receive the leaderships effect.
2. When used on a beam attack or area attack, only one of attacks in that series will receive the leaderships effect. (IE one of three models caught under the tool instead of all three.)
3. The leadership can be used on a character making a retaliatory attack outside their own activation (thread topic).

You are correct on number 1 as well as number 3 assuming the once per turn limit is not broken. 

For number 2, Mystic Empowerment changes the attack profile so all of the individual attacks made during the resolution of a beam or area attack will benefit from it.
