Team abilities are special abilities a character can use due to its alliance with a team or an affiliated group. When a character’s base includes a team symbol, it indicates the character possesses the team ability, as described on the team abilities card for that comic universe, though some are explained on the Powers and Abilities Card. Characters may have more than one team symbol on their base; this grants them multiple team abilities. Characters can also possess team abilities through special powers or trait abilities or Alternate Team Ability cards. Unless specified otherwise, these granted team abilities do not replace the symbols or team abilities currently possessed by the character. Team abilities are optional and can’t be countered.
