Pojo's HeroClix "Click of the Day"
|Red Reign (and it's sequels) are some of the more
interesting concepts Elseworlds has to offer. Basically, it's Batman as a
vampire. Nice combo don't you think?
Anyway, he doesn't get fully vamped up for a couple of clicks, so I'm not
going into his starting stats. He gets 2 ranged attacks with a range of 6,
not bad for starters. His attack dial has Incapacitate, Blades/Claws/Fangs
and Smoke Cloud. He gets Willpower
for the whole dial, and eithe Outwit or Battle Fury on his defense track. If
there's a place he's lacking, it's on the Speed Dial, which has no powers.
Now I don't know about you, but I've always seen Vampires as being pretty
quick, so maybe some Hypersonic speed wouldn't be uncalled for. He also has
a health of 9 clicks, and no toughness or invulnerability, like I would
expect with a vampire.
Overall, I'd say Red Reign Bats is a tad disappointing, but at only 106
points, he's still worth the cost. And speaking of cost, get ready to PAY
and PAY for him. Just like the Superman Unique, Bats is selling
in the $25 - $50 range currently. I'd suggest trying to pull him from
boosters, but then you already knew that.

Finally on Friday we have J'onn J'onnz...aka THE MARTIAN MANHUNTER. Oh
||This is my first review and I get to review one of my
favorite characters in the whole game, Batman. While he is different than
the Dark Knight we have come to know and love, he seems to be a great all
This new Unique Batman is sick. First off, he has the Batman Ally team
ability and that is always a plus. Second, HE CAN FLY!! That combo right
there is sick. Then you have to look at his stats. Incapacitate and Outwit
on his first 2 clicks. Willpower for his first 6 clicks. After his first 2
clicks he gets BCF and Battle Fury for his next 3 clicks which would suck
really bad if he couldnt fly, but he can! After he loses BCF and Battle Fury
he gets Smoke Cloud and his Outwit back. He has a range of 6 with 2 arrows
and at least a 2 damage his whole dial. For 106 points this guy is a
straight up bargain and will probably be seen alot in DC tourneys so if you
pull one you better hold on to it.
