VermillionSL Scarecrow

Scarecrow, one of the villains of this summer's Batman Begins movie is getting a heroclix revamp in Icons. Seems too soon, considering how we got a REV of him only two DC sets ago. Oh well, looks like we're getting another one to play with in Icons.

Sculpt wise, he looks like he's giving someone a high-five. 72% of High-fives are unwarranted. As is this pose. Perhaps he's just spraying some of that good old fashioned fear gas in someone's face (using his Psychic Blast), or Incapacitating someone.

Since the good folks at Wizkids gave us only the Veteran version to gawk at, that's what we'll take a look at. He's certainly a better figure than the original Unleashed version that we have now, that's for sure. This scarecrow is purely a ranged offensive unit. He starts off with Psychic blast, and a higher attack than his unleashed counterpart (9 instead of the Unleashed Vet's 8), but less Mind Control, and no Exploit Weakness, which wasn't the best power to put on a figure who isn't meant to be in the thick of battle anyway. It's too bad he doesn't have stealth; I recall him being a sneaky li'l bugger in the comics. Lack of a TA hurts, but only a little, since this one costs less for a far greater power. The loss of multitarget mind control is also a big hole where the old one has something over this one, but you won’t notice it with all the psychic blasts you'll be shooting off with him.

Honestly, for the points, there are better, but there's also a lot worse. A nice secondary attacker, but I wish he did more. those two clicks of perplex would have been so much better in the front, but then he would be way to top heavy, and less useful late dial.

2.5 out of 5.0
 
Dario OK, this one i'll make short, because i don't have much time today and
because this guy doesn't deserve it anyway! :P

This guy has an awesome sculpt; that i?ll give him. You need also something
called Stats to be useful, and this guy... let's see

A bats enemy, 6 range, 1 target, 6 clicks of life and :

Speed: 7, 6, 6, 5, 5, 4. Mind Control on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th clicks.

Attack: 9, 8, 8, 7, 7, 6. He has Psychic Blast for 3 clicks, followed by 2
of Incapacitate.

Defense: 15, 15, 14, 14, 13, 12. No powers

Damage: 2, 2, 2, 1, 1, 1. Perplex ont he last two clicks

Analysis:

Stay away from him. Low defense with no powers there, low damage with the
power in the worst place (it would be a lot better if it was right at the
beginning), low attack that with that low damage makes the precious PB
useless... would have been better if he had Incapacitate all the way in this
case, and finally sucky movement, and i still don't get why he doesn't start
with MC right from the first click... he sucks so much i'm not rating him!
