TEAM VILLAINS is coached by Doctor Doom, who uses his strategic brilliance and technological wizardry to aid his team in victory. He can equip his crew with weapons, gadgets, devices, and defenses for the battlefield.
Ahh, I overlooked that. This implies that Dr. Doom has time to come up with tech to overcome the heroes. It doesn't exactly give the amount of time though. Does he have 30 seconds? 30 minutes? 3 hours? A day?
I think that matters. But the longer the prep time, the more it goes in Villains' favor. And if he happens to have stuff lying around that can block Prof X's telepathy, or drain Hulk of his powers, then it really is in their favor.
