You know what?  I just realized that Whoclix (http://hometown.aol.com/thefightingfury/whoclix/guide.htm) doesn’t have DC Unleashed up yet, so for most of you, you’re probably flying blind as to who SOME of these characters are.  Jesse Quick is one of the DC Speedsters, and hangs around with Wally West Flash, and the rest of those characters  Both her father (Johnny Quick, one of the original DC Speedsters), and mother, Liberty Belle, were meta-humans, thus Jesse (who’s surname is Chambers) is an uber-meta-human!  During a crisis where Wally was turning into energy, he named Jesse his successor, in an effort to shock Impuse (Bart Allen) into becoming the hero he was meant to be.  Did it work?  I dunno, I suppose it did to an extent…but with The Flash, who knows what’s happening, that comic goes by too darn quick.


(insert drum roll here).  In any case, currently she has lost her powers (according to this website anyway http://www.hyperborea.org/flash/jesse.html), and is the head of “Quick Start” Enterprises.  Whatever that is.


So Jesse’s Rookie Heroclix is the cheapest character to have Hypersonic Speed at 45 points.  That alone will get her on some tournament teams, even though she’ll need some TK assistance to truly be utilized properly.  I’m not sure why she’s on a flight base, since as far as I know, she doesn’t have flight powers, and I don’t see a Wing icon on any of the online stat databases.  I guess I’ll actually have to LOOK at a figure to determine if the flight status is true or not.


Either way, Jesse is an awesome tournament figure.  Sure, a few of the stats are low, especially the range, but look what else besides HSS you get.  Flurry, Super Senses and Energy Shield.  Basically call her Nightcrawler Junior, and jump up and down with glee when you pull her from a booster.  You’ve got a tournament level clix (whatever rarity you get), and you should plan on using her on your teams.


Nuff Said.


Now, check out the LE.  I don’t know about you, but when an LE character is less powerful than the regular editions, I’m pretty upset.  Jesse Chambers LE is significantly underpowered, because basically, you trade out HSS and Energy Shield for Charge and Combat Reflexes.  Whoop-de-doo.  Her build cost is significantly lower than even the rookie (37 points!), but really, it’s that HSS that makes this character great, and Charge/CR isn’t that much of an improvement, if at all.


Currently, Jesse’s REVs sets are going for between $3.50 and $12.50 including shipping on Ebay.  I don’t see any listings for the LE yet, so it may not be available on the open market yet.  When it is, I would expect it to be a $20 figure.


My Ratings: (Playability, then Collectability)


Rook: 4, 3

Exp:   4, 3

Vet:    4, 4

LE     3, NA


Without Victory, there is no survival...
