Pojo's HeroClix "Click of the Day"
||Today On Clix of The Day its the LE Con Invisible
This Piece, like the Silver Surfer, was only available at the summer cons at
the wizkids booth.
She could be had by only spending $50 though. The Invisible Woman is the
fourth dial only clix ever, the other three are Yellowjacket, Ant-Man and
She too costs 50 points like them, but instead of a 20 defense she only has
an 18. However she has Defend and an attack power called Energy Explosion.
So She is slightly more offensively capable unlike the other marvel dial
boys. She only has an 8 attack though.
Team her up with someone like Ultimates Thor though and she becomes a horror
the likes of, well Ultimates Thor. She should never be thrown out there to
choke someone like The Atom, she should be carried around by the likes of,
Thor, Iron Man, KC Superman, Deathbird, or her bro the Human Torch. Try to
keep her in hindering and make your opponents fear every move you make or at
least think, how do I get around this?
Have fun and keep clicking!

Background: Ever wonder if a superhero family will stay together or not?
Look at whether or not the partners have complimentary attributes for
Let s see: Vision and Scarlet Witch? Doomed! Why?
Well, because, she s human, and he s an android, and when they, you know,
get intimate, she s actually uhh.. let s just say there s not much mutual
satisfaction. Peter Parker and Mary-Jane? Wanna know why she keeps going
back? Let s see, guy can stick to ANY surface for ANY amount of time. NUFF
Invisible Woman and Mr. Fantastic? Let s see: 1) typical blond bombshell
with a thing for leather (see the Malice storyline a while back) + 2) Man
with ability to stretch ANY part of his body = 3) the both of them will be
together until the end of the Marvel Universe. (Yes, I m bored with doing
First Thoughts: There s already a review for R Invisible on pojo.com here,
To tell the truth, the previous review pretty much said most of the stuff I
would say about this figure, plus the previous guys did a better job with
the background info, so I would suggest that if anyone wants to appreciate
our esteemed writers from the past, please go check out the link. I ll just
elaborate a bit on the extra stuff Wizkids tacked on to this figure to make
you pay big bucks at the convention.
Strengths: If you read the link from above, you ll know why 18 with Defend
with Stealth is so good, it s almost broken. This figure is a staple of a
lot of teams, to the point where a lot of players I know really hate this
figure. In addition to what the R IG does, this LE gets Energy Explosion
with 9 AV, which, with the 6 Range, gives IW a bigger offensive punch.
The end dial Barrier is still a pretty good last ditch defense in case
anyone manages to get through IW s defenses and wants to finish the job.
Weaknesses: Typical add more stuff to make the figure more interesting LE.
Sometimes, however, its
better to let sleeping dogs lie, as they say. See, R
Invisible Girl was good because she did only one thing, but she did it very
well. Some variations in LE form may help a figure, but other times, like
for this figure, its more like . It s not that the figure is bad, but what
it comes down to when a team is built is, should I just take the 37 pts for
the 18 Defend or use 13 more points for the extra garnishes?
Other than that, this figure is still pretty solid for what it does.
Opportunities: Well, since Wizkids took the time to make IW more of an
offensive piece, why not make it count? Whereas R Invisible Girl was a
mainstay for turtle teams or a security blanket you could carry around, for
the 50 pts you spend on this LE, you should definitely integrate her into
How? Basically, she still fulfills some of the same functions, but now, when
you taxi, instead of hiding this figure behind the figure that carried, it
may be possible to position this figure for an open shot.
Forget the 1 damage, the main function for this piece is to use EE on
offense, make sure she comes into Range of whatever you need to target. IW
LE is particularly good against bunches of weenies, since with such a high
Defense, they will rarely be able to hit you, while you can hit them with
the EE. Other than that, for teams that turtle, it may be possible to stick
her in front of the line sometimes to take a shot rather than hide her
behind all of your other guys.
Threats: Your opponent will become so angry at you they will HULK UP! and
trash your stuff for using such a #$%#@ cheap figure. Seriously though, with
the high AV floating around these days, plus with all the new TA that can
see through stealth, boost AV and such, in the current environment, this
figure has lost some of its dominance. It s still a threat, but it s not
nearly as frustrating to face an R IG team now as it was before Ultimates
came out. (Although I do know a new combo these days using R IG with U Thor,
a tactic that s been called the new @#$%$ing CHEAP team combo, but that s
Conclusion: The LE version of Invisible Girl is an offensive upgrade over
the basic Rookie package. If you need more punch in your team, and you can
put up the extra points, I say, go for it. Otherwise, it s not like it does
R IG s job any better than she already would. Since I would give a 4 to R IG
for tournament play, I have to give a 4 to the LE as well.
For Casual, same deal, as she s just as useful.
