Today we'll be reviewing Darkseid from Icons
Darkseid is the Thanos of DC. One of the best male
villans to ever wear a skirt.
Yes, you're right. I used to at least attempt to
explain the character now I just crack a joke and
move on...........well.....moving on!
Since this is REV instead of just Unique we'll do a
quick run down
Rookie: 141, No Team, 10 range/1 target
Experianced: 157, No Team, 10 range/1 target
Veteran: 181, No Team, 12 range/1 target
WHICH IS BETTER?: The experianced immediately loses
out, because there is no upgrade in range. The big
thing about Darkseid is his Pychic Blast with 5 or 4
damage, the rookie has that for two clicks, the
Veteran has it for four. Stacking feats on the
rookie, will not make him better then the Veteran.
The Veteran has more clicks, range and four clicks
of pychic blast. WINNER: VETERAN
MOVEMENT: Phasing with a 14. Then phasing at the
end, so he can run away and be healed.
ATTACK: 10,9,10,11,11,10,9,8,8,8,7. He STARTS with
super strength, he then gains Pychic Blast, then
back to super strength.
DEFENSE: 17 then 16 (both with Impervious), 17,16,15
(all with invulnerablity), 17,16, 15,15,14,14 (all
DAMAGE: 4 then 4 (both with
SCULPT: One well detailed, Bad arss dude....wearing
OVERALL: I usually don't do this, but I'm going to
break this down a little more then I usually do by
making a list of his major issues.
• His movement is his major problem. Phasing is
nice, but charge or running shot make any figure
more playable. Without a move and attack feature
alot of times a big character has to use his turn to
chase. But the phasing at the end is brillant, think
of how good it is on Amazo.
• He hits very very hard. His first 6 clicks are
amazing for that. Outwit and pychic blast will solve
the defenses, so when he hits for 5 he hits the
entire five and that will wreck most bigger
• His defense is soild, but hittable.
• 12 range is really really good. In an open map
hypersonic will not be able to run far enough away.
• His first two clicks are not as good as his
following clicks and I usually do not like that.
• He never has a completely useless click, even at
the end he hits for alot and for 11 clicks down he
has a pretty high attack.
So overall I would say he is accutally ALMOST
undercosted, but if that is too much of a stretch he
is at least fairly priced (points wise). Darkseid is
not Ultimate Thor though, but he is definately
close. No running shot is killer and he is also not
Ultimates, but a team could still be built around
him with very few problems. 181 leaves 119 worth of
support. Feat cards are a huge debate, Fortitude
could be used, but so could a 50 point outwitter
that could attack. Maybe the new starter Batman.
Contact is good as always, but a Con Artist will
just be better. Large Object Feat might be a nice
way for him to beat a KC Green Lantern. But I say
drop the cards focus on the supporting him. 2
Medics, Destiny, Batman and a few Pogs could make
Darkseids dreams of forcing the whole world into
Scottish skirt wearing customs come true.
HE RECEIVES A 4 OUT OF A POSSIBLE 5 THUMBS UP!
