When bullets are already flying, she's front and center. When the group needs a subtle threat, not a hairy beast, she is their glum but unflappable envoy. She doesn't give the orders, but word is the power behind the Dead Boyz is a girl who won't die.
Well, it depends on what else she can do. If 'all' she is is unkillable, she's good as a bullet magnet, and that's about it. Unkillability, regeneration, etc. aren't much use in a powered combat environment unless they let you use some other ability in ways it couldn't otherwise be used. They are very handy in other areas, of course - they misadventure-proof you.
