    Default Heroclix rules question: Poison

    Relatively new to game, so trying to learn the rules.

    Had a question about Poison: Do powers that reduce damage (like impervious, toughness, invulnerability) also reduce damage for poison? or does poison ignore those powers?

    Powers that reduce damage such as impervious, toughness, invulnerability, can be used to reduce the damage dealt from poison. Poison does not ignore thoese powers

    What about Super Senses? Does it prevent the poison damage on a successful roll?

    No, Super Senses can not be used against poison.

    Let's look at the wordings:

    Poison: Once at the beginning of your turn, as a free action this character
    deals 1 damage to each opposing character adjacent to it.

    Toughness: Damage dealt to this character is reduced by 1.

    Super Senses: When this character is hit by an attack, roll one d6
    before damage is dealt. On a result of 5 or 6, this character evades the attack.

    As you can see, poison deals damage and toughness reduces damage dealt. SDo toughness will reduce damage dealt by poison

    But supersenses doesn't talk about damage dealt. It refers to an attack. Since poison is not an attack, super senses will not help against it.
