Monica Chang
Reviews

This ally is great. She is very hard not to include in most of my justice decks.

On their own neither Monica Chang or Surveillance Team are good value. But getting a free Surveillance Team with an extra snooper turns her into a great value card. You're essentially getting 5 thwart (over a minimum of 4 rounds albeit) and a chump block for 3 cost. What's not to love?

I usually run her with just a single Surveillance Team and just ensure I've cycled the snoopers before I reshuffle my discard pile.

It is also worth mentioning that both Monica Chang and Surveillance Team have the S.H.I.E.L.D. trait, so they interact very well with Sky-Destroyer and especially Homeland Intervention and Dum Dum Dugan as she puts two cards into play. — The_Wall · 107
Monica and one Surveillance Team is indeed a perfectly fine value package to put in any Justice deck, but she gets extra value in a full SHIELD nonsense deck alongside three Surveillance Teams. That deck wants to have lots of random SHIELD things in play to exhaust for various reasons, so you're happy to have a couple Teams sitting there indefinitely on one counter until Monica can show up to give them another counter AND load up a fresh Team. Bonus if you have a way to recur Monica repeatedly (eg be Spider-Woman so you have Leadership access). — Fry · 82
