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 with toughness)

DAMAGE: 4 then 4 (both with outwit),5,5,5,5,4,4,3,3,3

SCULPT: One well detailed, Bad arss dude....wearing a skirt.

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 characters.
• 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!
