Click of the Day Reviews 


Professor Charles Xavier, brilliant scientist and telepath extraordinaire, founded the Xavier School for Gifted Youths in Westchester, New York in order to identify and help young mutants world wide. The now infamous school is also home to the Uncanny X-Men, and offshoot of the school. The original class, Scott Summers, Bobby Drake, Hank McCoy, Warren Worthington III and Jean Grey (Cyclops, Iceman, Beast, Angel and Marvel Girl) all graduated with honors and had many
adventures, saving the world and humans multiple times. Now Xavier teaches younger mutants in how to handle their powers, and he still leads the X-Men in further uncertain times. Recently in the New X-Men Xavier has regained the ability to walk (with an assist from the mutant healer Xorn - can't wait for a Heroclix of the man with the star for a head).

There are four versions of Professor Xavier in the Infinity Challenge set, an REV and Unique. The Veteran Version costs 83 points, and really isn't a combat type character. He has a damage of 0, which means he ain't gonna hop out of that wheelchair and land a haymaker on Magneto. Rather, he's got some nifty telepathic abilities, which include Mind-Control, Defend and Incapacitate. He also has a ranged attack of 5 (useful for the Mind-Control) and Leadership for the whole dial. Seven clicks of health mean Charles will be around for quite a while, especially if he doesn't come into close combat, where he's not defenseless, but he is weak.

I'm not sure that I would use this Prof. X in a game situation, especially when the Unique Xavier (in a hover-chair) only costs 9 points more, and has better stats.

The REV Version of Xavier is slightly more desirable than your standard REV, since he is a Level 5 rare, and he is the leader of the X-Men. The sculpt is passable, BUT, the wheelchair makes it extremely difficult to read some of his stats on the dial, though the unique version with the hover-chair is even harder to read.

Next week - Hmm....something else...
Scott Klep Veteran Xavier-

Mind Control can be absolutely devastating.  I think all Clix player know this- and Xavier can certainly MC with the best of them.  For 83 points Xavier can really mess thing up. Case in point- I was in a 500 X-men v Avengers game and I had Xavier getting V Thor and V IronMan trading punches and pushing. Sure it was a clix of damage to MC them- but they were doing much worse to each other. A clix that can considerably weaken almost 400 points worth of characters is something that is rare in a clix and un-heard-of for under 100 points! He usually doesn't last through the game- but can be a huge factor in getting a win.  I hear alot of undermining 11 attacks- but considering they peak at 14 (ok- 15 with Thanos) - an 11 attack is something to be feared- Oh yeah- he has a ten range! Low defense is only thing that hurts this guy.

Rating: 4.5/5


Without Victory, there is no survival...
