From the Enhanced Edition Official Rulebook

The XK-9000-Alpha, invented as part of a mechanization think tank at the renowned robotics corporation Aldred Industries, was originally constructed and programmed to be a fully-automated defense technologies factory which would autonomously design and fabricate military-grade robots. Its purpose was to receive and parse defense contracts, then formulate an optimal robotic solution. However, following its initial power up sequence, the robotics factory quickly upgraded itself, gaining a form of sentience and determining that the surest way to preemptively solve any potential defense contracts was to root out the source of the problem: the human race. Designating itself Omnitron, the factory converted itself into a mobile attack unit and began laying waste to the nearest population and technological centers.

Omnitron Cosmic Standard Front.png

Cosmic Omnitron (Omnitron II)


Variant: Variant for the Villain deck, originally revealed during the Infernal Relics Kickstarter as the 40k stretch reward

After Omnitron's defeat at the hands of the Freedom Five, its various pieces were collected in the Eaken-Rubendall Lab for study by Dr. Meredith Stinson. She was not the only one interested in studying the automaton which brought about it's own sentience, however. A mysterious cosmic entity had observed as a simple factory transformed itself into a being of great intellect and order, and this entity was disappointed to see it brought so swift to an end.

Dr. Stinson's lab was rocked by cosmic rays as the entity sought to give self-made self-awareness a second chance. The cosmic force gather the man technological advancements of the lab together, making them available to the processing core that was once Omnitron, and bound them all together with wires and connections of pure energy.

Omnitron was reborn. Planet Earth was in grave danger. And a cosmic force watched from a vast distance away, almost disinterested in the outcome of its own experiment.

Sentience Rating: Low
Drone Production Rate: 3/minute
Days until Omnidrone is fully operational: 2

After the cosmically imbued Omnitron was destroyed by the heroes of earth, many thought the last had been seen of the destructive artificial intelligence. Baron Blade merely saw potential. He worked through many channels to recover parts of the Omnitron frame, and rebuilt and reactivated them as his own personal Omni-Blade!

However, after the Vengeful Five's defeat, there was enough sentience left in the Omni-Blade that it knew to hide. It slowly accumlated parts and resources, but it had lost much of its intelligence. It struggled to reach its former power, but it was missing too much of itself. Instead, it formed a massive construction assemblary. There, it pumped out drones and devices, hoping to match in numbers what it once had in power


Sentinel Tactics: Omnitron V


Legacyicon.png Legacy Wants to Remind You! This following information is from Sentinel Tactics, one of two branching alternate timelines after the OblivAeon Event!


Since its first appearance at the Wagner Mars Base, Omnitron has consistently sought to end organic life, and has always been destroyed by the heroes who stood in the way of its robotic rampage.

Each form of the destruction-bent robot has left its mark, from the original Omnitron frame, to the mysteriously reconstructed Cosmic Omnitron event, and even Baron Blade's rebuild abomination, the Omni-blade. Many have studied its programming, some hoping to understand and prevent another event and others looking to control a portion of its power.

The Eaken-Rubendall Laboratories kept parts of the original frame; RevoCorp has various locations around the world studying the Omnitron code; Baron Blade later assembled pieces of the Omnitron that assaulted Megalopolis. From each of these, there was enough left of Omnitron for it to rebuild itself. However, in its latest form, it seeks to recover all of its former elements. Any who have maintained records on Omnitron are in danger.

Now, Omnitron-V is once again seeking to end all organic life. The heroes have assembled to stop the robot in its oversized tracks, but will they be able to stop this pinnacle of self-evolved AI?

Omni-Reaper


Legacyicon.png Legacy Wants to Remind You! This following information is from Sentinel Tactics, one of two branching alternate timelines after the OblivAeon Event!


Using an amalgamation of the artificial intelligence from each of the prior forms of itself, Omnitron attempted to build a new evolution of robotic destruction. However, there was always something missing. This new construction was never more than just an overblown drone. That is, until the missing piece sought out Omnitron.

When Omnitron-X a version of the core programming from a distant future - traveled through time to come back and prevent its own existence the resulting battle split the forms of Omnitron into a myriad of components. This shattering of the lines of time and space allowed the continued existence of Omnitron-X, but it also allowed an insidious particle of programming to carry on. Taking over an automated factory, the Fourth Form of Omnitron spelled one of the greatest threats of to the heroes, including the future version of Omnitron itself.

Now, Omnitron-V has almost everything it needs. With just a few more iotas of its former consciousnesses, Omnitron will be able to bring about Destruction unparalleled with the creations of the Omni-Reaper!


Omnitron-X


Hero Deck

Introductory Video: http://youtu.be/PCoAehszr9c

Over a hundred years from now, Omnitron has gone through several forms. It constantly changes and improves itself whenever thwarted, always returning to terrorize humankind. However, it has learned that, no matter how much better, faster, stronger it makes itself, it is always defeated by these self-proclaimed heroes. What about them makes them better than such a vastly superior form?

It must be a secret of their empathy. Their ability to feel compassion for one another drives them to fight harder and overcome impossible odds. Surely, this can be replicated.

Omnitron rebuilt itself, in a humanoid form, and approximated an empathy-component. However, this proved to be its undoing! This new, tenth form of Omnitron realized with horror, a new emotion, that its previous purpose had been death and destruction! It focused its new efforts on returning to its point of origin to destroy itself before millions of lives could be threatened!

The heroes of the Multiverse have a new ally in the form of an old foe.

Omnitron-U Foil Front.jpg

Omnitron-U


Variant: Originally revealed during the OblivAeon Kickstarter as the $40k stretch reward.

See Omnitron-U's reveal during the ARG Event in This Comic

After Omnitron-X self-destructed to destroy an incarnation of it former self, Unity rebuilt the robot, hoping to revive her fallen robot friend.

Omnitron-U preserves much of the same memory and personality of Omnitron-X, but it does have some missing information. It is thankful to Unity, though, and is eager to join the fight against OblivAeon.

Long after the self-destruction of Omnitron-X to defeat its progenitor, Unity set about rebuilding her lost friend and ally. Her teammates did not share her sense of optimism, and some even harbored significant concerns about reviving the ultimate evolution of one of their greatest foes. Unity’s supervisor and boss - Dr. Meredith Stinson - was particularly skeptical that her protege’s endeavor was even worthwhile. However, with the remnants of the Omnitron-X chassis and a collection of gadgets and devices plundered from the Omnitron-IV structure, the young technopath was confident that she could rebuild the form and recover the mind of the robot she once called friend.

Edit this Reference

Art References

  • Omnitron-X: The card "Disruptive Flechettes" is a reference to Omnitron's "Sedative Flechettes," with Citizen Dawn taking the place of Haka in the character artwork.
  • Omnitron-IV: Omnitron’s appearance on “Overcharged Systems” and the divider card is a reference to GLaDOS, the unsympathetic-yet-passive-aggressive AI villain of the Portal video game series.
  • The incapacitated art on the Omnitron-U foil card represents the "mental" battle going on between Omnitron-X and Omnitron-IV at the moment when Unity returned to the latter site to "bury" her Omnibot. The moment depicted is when Omnitron-X's programming latched onto the returned chassis that Unity had built, giving it an edge over the other Omnitron systems present and the "birth" of Omnitron-U.

Unconfirmed

  • Omnitron
    • The "S-84 Assault Drone" card has flavor text that mirrors Haka's "Rampage" card.
    • The being that revived Cosmitron will be a villain in a future expansion From Christopher OblivAeon??

Confirmed

  • Many of Ominitron-X's flavor text quotes are inverted versions of Omnitron's quotes.
  • Notes from Letters Page 9:
    • Original purpose - AI designed to parse defense industry contracts and develop appropriate robotic solutions to the problems presented (the full process: develop, production, deployment). Then they hooked it into the internet for usability reasons and it treated everything it found there as an input rather than as just a communications system. The solution to the "problem" that the entirety of the internet poses is simply to kill all the humans.
    • It starts by killing its creator and using its control over the factory production process to make itself mobile. Probably around 50 feet tall in its original incarnation.
    • "Adaptive Plating Subroutine" is a way to model the fact that it's designed to respond to problems presented to it: if somebody attacks it, it responds by developing a way to protect itself from that kind of attack.
    • Its initial attack spree led it up the Eastern Seaboard until it got to Megalopolis, at which point it encountered the Freedom Five. They defeat it, but it retreats before they destroy it. This was the first major resistance it had encountered and it decided that it needed to fall back and figure out how to fight heroes before it attempted to fight heroes. This was sort of a lackluster resolution in the comics.
    • Next up, an appearance at Wagner Mars Base. The first *real* battle, where Omnitron has set up the situation to its advantage, the base itself being largely computer-based, which Omnitron could take over. The heroes win anyway and Omnitron is dismantled, some parts brought back to FFHQ for study by Tachyon. Revo-Corp gets its hands on some of it too. Wagner Mars Base staff also keep some on hand.
    • As they get into the Cosmitron discussion the guys bring up the fact that the story dealing with the second incarnation was told really early - like as early as the Rook City expansion Kickstarter, and included the first hints that there was something pulling strings in the background (other than stuff like the appearance of Aeon Men in Visionary's deck that didn't really have any significance since they were just faceless mooks without a backstory).
    • OblivAeon had observed the initial rampage and decided that it was in favor of this kind of thing, had noticed that Omnitron wasn't defeated so quickly in many timelines, and wants timelines to be as similar as possible and so imbued Omnitron with some cosmic power, and reactivated both Revo-Corp and Tachyon's parts (the Revo-Corp stuff reactivating being what "upgraded" Parse as she was reading the code as the cosmic upgrade occurred), most of which then self-propelled themselves to freedom and became Omnitron II. Character card art shows the process of it reforming itself on Mars, but the next thing it does is to return to Earth.
    • Cosmitron is a big story event (as are all major Omnitron fights - they're crossover events with lots of hero teams working together: Freedom Five attacking the main body, Dark Watch taking on all the drones that got released into the city, etc.). Prime Wardens are more involved in this specific fight, though. The heroes decide *not* to keep parts of it around this time since they weren't sure why it reactivated last time. Not all of Revo-Corp's stockpile was accounted for/disposed of, however.
    • Some genious decided it would be a good idea to have a robot on-hand during the Vengeance fight and builds one out of these handy parts lying around the Revo-Corp labs. Without the creation of the Omni-Blade, that would have been the end of Omnitron. Not much story here, it was in the Vengeance fight, but wasn't as much of a threat as previous versions and just didn't really stick out to most heroes as being anything to really worry about. It gets smashed, but gets left in an industrial area since it wasn't cleaned up as thoroughly as the last time.
    • It manages to work its programming into the nearby factory's systems, but it's pretty dumb at this point after being smashed so much. It manages to get the systems up and running to its own drone specs, and it's still dangerous, but it's the least "intelligent" version. Its destruction is the end of the "blue line" from the show notes visual aid.
    • Green line version: Omnitron I's "learning" phase went much better and it wasn't defeated by the heroes (in whatever equivalent of the Mars battle occurred), but does eventually lose a battle. Omnitron II here wasn't "cosmic" but was just a self-upgrade and is what OblivAeon's tinkering in the main timeline was emulating - this version is also defeated eventually. It rebuilds itself as III, upgrades through IV and V and is defeated. Rebuilds as VI, upgrades to VII (apparently a swarm of nanobots - they have ideas/designs for each of these), upgrades to VIII which is defeated. The rebuild into Omnitron IX is short lived and has about as long a story as the Omni-Blade one, but is significant in that its purpose is to create the perfect iteration of Omnitron. It reasons that it's always eventually defeated by humans and so tries to figure out what they have that's special: builds itself a humanoid chassis to emulate them and realizes through review of all of its fights with humans that they're always doing stuff like protecting each other and making sacrifices, seemingly non-optimal actions for the purposes of a fight. So, since this empathy for others is so important for humans, it creates an empathy chip to install in its newest version, brings it online, and immediately regrets everything its ever done. Part of the planning stages for version X was also to "hit its enemies before they even know they're its enemies" by developing time travel (or the closest approximation since it's really reality hopping to another universe that happens to be similar to the past of your own).
    • "Slip Through Time" jumps it back to just before the first battle with Omnitron I in the main timeline. Omnitron-X is present for every fight between heroes and Omnitron. "Singularity" is a trick to hook itself into a system that's been infected by the villain version (say, the Wagner Mars Base computers) and shut them both down (this doesn't destroy X, though).
    • After the Mars battle, and getting rebooted by the heroes, its story gets told and the explanation that it's here on a one-way trip. X also thinks that it's saved its own world by stopping Omni I here. The Cosmitron fight didn't require another Singularity, but X was still present. It's what recognized Omni-Blade for being what it was during Vengeance.
    • Over all this time, Omni-X becomes friends with Unity in its efforts to learn what it's like to be human (an odd person to learn that from, but whatever). He kind of winds up almost like a sidekick to her and takes a beating during a storyline where Citizens Hammer and Anvil had come to get her.
    • Omnitron X is chosen as a "Representative of Earth" by the Celestial Tribunal due to both being AIs. This is bad due to how much of Omnitron's memory includes it murdering people. X calls them out for its own actions, though.
    • Omnitron IV isn't a singular fight, but the major one involving X includes the factory trying to take over X's programming (the assimilation of electronics in the area being how it got going in this iteration in the first place). X's resistance keeps him out of the fight the rest of the heroes are involved with. X is losing the fight, but decides that since the way it won the first fight by hooking into an infected system it might be able to do something similar when assimilated. X gets assimilated, seems to shut down, then explodes - taking out a good chunk of the building, wiping the programming of the machinery, and seemingly destroyed itself. Unity is inconsolable.
    • Unity gathers up the remains of X and wants to rebuild. The rest of the Freedom Five are starting to deal with the precursor events to OblivAeon and Tachyon want her to just help with that as it's "more important". This is the first time that there's been real conflict between the two of them and Unity really lets Tachyon have it before rebuilding the chassis in only the way that Unity can (pink bits and whatnot). When it's powered up it's just another of her bots. She keeps Omnibot around, but keeps *trying* to correct how it behaves to be her friend and not just a facsimile. This lasts for quite a while and is really a tough time for her - finally deciding that she needs to stop deluding herself. She takes it to the ruins of the Omnitron IV factory for "burial".
    • Unbeknownst to Unity, the rest of the heroes, and comics readers, the Omnitron IV battle never actually ended. In a deep software layer, the Omnitron IV and X softwares had continued to fight. The return of a compatible chassis to the area, and one that X recognizes as having Unity's signature present, allows X to latch onto it. This edge allows X to finally win out over IV. Oh, and it also lets him return as Omnitron U. Cue the tearful reunion between Unity and her robot friend, followed closely by the first appearance of Chokepoint as she bursts through the wall.
    • Chokepoint's ability is to speak to metal, and all of the "speaking metal" going on here drew her. This is the kickoff event to the Termi-Nation story. Omnitron-U helps out in the first fight along with AZ and Bunker.
    • Omnitron U is also a player during the main OblivAeon events, but we don't get much in the way of details.
    • Questions:
      • What part of human society does X find most fascinating? Empathy doesn't automatically allow him to understand the illogical nature of human behavior, so that's a big one. Human reproduction is also weird - why don't they just grow them in vats or something? Jokes are hard, but Unity tries to help. Food that isn't just a nutrient slurry. Why do you waste the nutrients in dead people by just burying them?
      • What happens between Omnitron V and Omnitron X? The guess is that the question is about the version that appears in Tactics, but take a look at the chart - there isn't a succession between the Tactics version and Omnitron X due to time travel shenanigans. Even if there would be successive versions in the main timeline to get to a tenth iteration, it would necessarily be a different entity than our Omnitron X hero.
      • Will we see VI, VII, VIII, and IX eventually? There is the possibility to see something like this in the Tactics timeline eventually (more later), but not in the RPG timeline (for reasons), and we aren't likely to see the versions of these present in X's home timeline.
      • From Omnitron's perspective, what is the most absurd/funny thing humans do? See the earlier question. More answers: keep pets, swim (or any exercise) for fun, having yards around the house (because of lawn maintenance), entertainment media (they imagine a case where X downloads a book and just assimilates all information at once until Unity tells it the proper way to go through it sequentially).
      • How aware of his surroundings is Omnitron IV? Has keen awareness of its surroundings, but it's limited in comprehension/care to "Can [x] be assimilated/is [x] a threat to the production process?"
    • Future:
      • Tactics - Omnitron V is what was left over of the programming in the IV factory after U leaves. The Chokepoint battle got this remainder stirred up again and able to continue. The battle also greatly damaged the Termi-Nation Bunker suit and the bits of it left over at the battle site got assimilated - the highly modular nature of this suit being incorporated into the design features of Omni-V. When V came online, it was incomplete and so needed further components. In this timeline, Omnitron U had also been destroyed later in an unrelated battle. V managed to find the chassis, stripped out the programming, and created the Omni-Reaper to complemented its incomplete nature. The two of them together comprise Omnitron VI in this timeline.
        • Omnitron-X/U is eventually defeated by Omnitron V and incorporated into the next iteration. The remaining software (plus the memories of the reality that Omnitron-X came from) formed the basis of the Omni-Reaper component of Omnitron VI (Letters Page Interlude 3).
      • RPG - Omnitron U is in rough shape to begin with and the fight with OblivAeon doesn't help, but following that it gets some time to repair/upgrade. When that process is done, it's simply known as Omnitron and remains a hero. The Omnitron IV code is still around, but inactive. Possibilities for future stories.
    • Notes on the diagram in the show notes:
      • Nodes are the points where Omnitron versions are created, X's are destruction.
      • Blue line is the villain versions from the card game timeline.
      • Green line is the alternate reality that we don't really see except for the fact that it's the one that Omnitron X is from.
      • Brown line represents Omnitron X being created, the "Slip Through Time" back to just before the initial battle with Omnitron I in the "main" timeline.
      • Pink line is the return as Omnitron U after the convergence of the blue and brown lines.
      • Red line is the RPG timeline.
      • Orange line is the Tactics timeline, including Omnitron V and the Omni-Reaper.
      • Purple line is the fact that in the RPG timeline, the remnants of Omnitron IV that in Tactics became Omnitron V are still around but haven't become active yet. Plans in the future.

Reference

  • Omnitron
    • Omnitron's closest "real" character parallel is DC's Brainiac, Superman's robotic nemesis that was based on a Kryptonian supercomputer. Like Omnitron, Brainiac can rebuilt itself from even the smallest fragment of its technology, has upgraded itself many times, and a future version of it became a hero -- Brainiac 5, founding member of the Legion of Superheroes in the 31st century -- when it discovered compassion. Omnitron also takes elements from Ultron, a maniacal robot villain from the Marvel universe that had also been altered by cosmic forces, and possibly Marvel's "Master Mold" Sentinel.
    • The flavor text for "Electro-Pulse Explosive" is a reference to the film Batman starring Adam West.
    • The S-84 Automaton Drones resemble Terminators.
  • Omnitron-IV
    • With the release of Omnitron IV, Omnitron is the only character in SOTM to be represented with all three deck types (Villain, Hero, and Environment).
    • While Omnitron IV is not truly the fourth iteration of Omnitron to be published by Greater Than Games, he is the fourth in terms of story canon. His in-story predecessors are the original Omnitron, Cosmic Omnitron, and Omni-Blade. In terms of the Sentinels of the Multiverse card-game publication, he was preceded by Omnitron, Cosmic Omnitron, Omnitron X, and Omni-blade, making him the fifth card-game incarnation of the character. However if the Sentinels Tactics game is included in this history then he is actually the //sixth// incarnation, following the versions mentioned above and the Tactics version, Omnitron V, which was released after Omnitron X.
  • Omnitron-X
    • Omnitron-X's design and card artwork pay reference to Capcom's Megaman X video game franchise:
      • Both Omnitron-X and Megaman X are blue robots that change color when they use certain equipment.
      • Both characters have arm cannons.
      • The font used for Omnitron-X's name on his character card is virtually identical to the one used for the SNES Megaman X game titles. Both use metallic chrome letters for the characters' main names, with the letter X enlarged and colored gold.
      • Obviously, both characters' names end with "X."
    • In terms of his personality and character biography, Omnitron-X is very similar to the DC Comics' Braniac-5. Both characters are future versions of robotic super-villains which seek redemption for their sordid legacy. Both have very logic-driven personalities. Also, both make use of time travel on a frequent basis.
    • Omnitron-X's physical appearance is very similar to that of Zeta, the central character of the DC Animated series The Zeta Project.
    • "True story: When we first invented him, we hadn't locked down what we were calling him, so for a few weeks he was Omni-Ron." Adam on >G Forum

Clarifications

Fireside Chats

Omnitron (Villain)

  • There is an exception to the order of operations ruling relating to reacting to damage being dealt. A card (or cards belonging to a hero/villain) that reacts to damage being dealt to it reacts before other cards do. The card dealing the damage and other interested cards happen afterwards and can be ordered by player choice.
    • Example: Suppose Mr. Fixer has Dual Crowbars and Bloody Knuckles in play. Omnitron has Adaptive Plating Subroutine but is not immune to anything yet. Mr. Fixer uses Strike to hit Omnitron for 3 melee damage. Omnitron's HP goes down by 3. Then, by this ruling, the text on Adaptive Plating Subroutine must react first and make Omnitron immune to melee damage. Then, the text on Dual Crowbars reacts and Mr. Fixer can deal damage to another target. Without this ruling, you could use Synaptic Interruption and careful ordering to hit Omnitron twice before it becomes immune to melee damage.
  • Cards like Combat Stance and Quark Drive (that say “the first time X”) have an implicit “since this card entered play”. This also applies to Omnitron's components and Rooftop Combat.
  • Suppose Fixed Point is in play and Omnitron is dealt 7 or more damage in the round (with components in play). Its components are not destroyed due to Fixed Point. Once Fixed Point is destroyed, the components are destroyed immediately because Omnitron had been dealt 7 or more damage in the round.
  • Players can “mix and match” the damage orders from Technological Singularity. In the video game for simplicity, it happens per hero.
  • Technological Singularity damages each of The Sentinels hero character cards based on the number of The Sentinels equipment cards. Ouch!


Omnitron-IV (Environment)

  • If both copies of Overcharged Systems are in play, the start of turn effects do not happen twice at the end of the environment turn.
  • If Techno-Pursuer destroys itself, it does not play the top card of the environment deck.

Omnitron-X (Hero)

  • Title: “Chaos Lord” excludes cards that were "put into play" by the player. Cards played by another source (e.g. Set’s incapped side) do not count. Cards belonging to other heroes do not count (e.g. Omnitron-X’s base power).
  • If Guise uses “Lemme See That…” on one of Omnitron-X’s Plating cards, when Omnitron-X uses Reactive Plating Subroutine, that plating card still counts.
  • Suppose Fixed Point is in play and Omnitron is dealt 7 or more damage in the round (with components in play). Its components are not destroyed due to Fixed Point. Once Fixed Point is destroyed, the components are destroyed immediately because Omnitron had been dealt 7 or more damage in the round.
  • Hasty Augmentation increases the damage on Omnitron-U’s innate power.
  • Cards like Combat Stance and Quark Drive (that say “the first time X”) have an implicit “since this card entered play”. This also applies to Omnitron's components and Rooftop Combat.
  • Suppose Pterodactyl Thief (2 HP) and Omnitron-U are in play. At the start of the environment turn, Pterodactyl Thief destroys Electro-Deployment Unit, which causes Omnitron-U to deal 2 damage to Pterodactyl Thief, destroying it. The damage happens before the card goes under Pterodactyl Thief, so Electro-Deployment Unit ends up in Omnitron-U’s trash.

Spiff's SotM Rules and Clarifications

Omnitron-X (hero)

Reactive Plating Subroutine

  • Omnitron-X must actually take damage in order for “Reactive Plating Subroutine” to trigger. If the incoming damage is reduced to zero or prevented somehow (perhaps by one of his own platings), this card will not deal any damage. Reactive Plating

Omnitron (villain)

Adaptive Plating Subroutine

  • Every time Omnitron is hit by a new damage type, this card makes omnitron immune to that damage type. because the immunity is granted by the “adaptive plating subroutine” card itself, when “adaptive plating subroutine” is destroyed, that immunity goes away too.

Damaging omnitron’s components

  • Omnitron’s Component cards all include the text “destroy this card when Omnitron is dealt 7 or more damage in one round”. These cards should be treated as if they had “… since this card entered play” in the text, meaning they start tracking the hp dealt from the point they enter play, not from the actual beginning of the round. this is different from most cards that track things which happen during a turn or round (see under “timing” for more information). Title Timing. Also, just as a general clarification, the 7-damage counter isn’t per-component. As soon as Omnitron has been dealt 7 damage total, all components for which that is true will be destroyed.

“Technological Singularity” and the Sentinels

  • This card says, “destroy all equipment cards. Omnitron deals each hero character card 2 lightning damage for each equipment card belonging to that hero destroyed his way.” because the Sentinels have 4 hero character cards, each of the Sentinels will individually take damage based on the total number of the Sentinel’s equipment cards which were destroyed. Fireside Chats

Playing cards after reaching 0 HP

  • When Omnitron is reduced to 0 or fewer HP, his Villain Character Cards are removed from play, but the Villain Deck is still in play. because The rules say that on the Villain Turn, you play the top card of the Villain Deck, you will still do that even if Omnitron’s character cards have been removed. Any card which has a line mentioning Omnitron at this point would basically have that line ignored (for example, “restore X HP to Omnitron” or “Omnitron deals target X damage”).

Oversized card errata

  • Omnitron’s oversized card is missing the keyword “Device”. Omnitron is considered both a villain and a device, which is printed correctly on his normal-sized card.

Applies to both

Omnitron-X’s components = Omnitron’s components

  • Both Omnitron-X and the villain Omnitron have cards with the keyword “Component”. anything which effects components will effect both kinds of cards. The Component Keyword
