I had planned to use her as a 'hero', but the figure was too deep to fit onto a 'hero' base, so this is a 'behemoth' depth. However I think she may variably count as hero or behemoth, and could even count as a God, although Spiderman might be more than a little 'miffed' at being supplanted in that way.

The completed army, at more than 24 army points. Maybe I should expand this lot to 36 poinjs?
