Today we'll be reviewing Batman from the DC Starter Set

Bruce Wayne millionaire had one all consuming quest. That was to become the ultimate chick magnet. Bruce was men that was good looking, financially secure and had his own servant, yet he strove for a way to be more of a P I M P. Spending years honing the art of coolness, he designed a costume that was roughly the reveres of the original Flash’s’ and become the ultimate pimp. BATMAN: THE DARK, BROODING, CRIME FIGHTING, CHICK MAGNET!

Since these are the starter set characters so it should be noted that there only exists an experienced version of this Batman. These characters are designed for low point cost and easy use. Wizkids has done a good job with this and made it a fun Batman theme. However, I review for the competitive tournament element and will not necessarily cut any of figures the slack they deserve.

POINTS: 47
RANGE: 6 with a single target.
Batman Team Ability.
6 Clicks

MOVEMENT: 8 with an entire dial of leap/climb

ATTACK: 10, 9, 9,8,8,7 with Incapacitate for the last two clicks.

DEFENSE: 16, 15, 15,14,14,13 with Willpower for the first three clicks.

DAMAGE: 2 (with outwit), 2, 2, 2,1,1,1

SCULPT: When I think Batman do I think removable head and breathing apparatus (Legacy). No. I think this of sculpt.

OVERALL:
 Very cheap Batman, with the same normal abilities
 10 attack
 Poor range and a single target
 Batman team ability for stealth, but leap/climb gets you out of the bush and where you need to be.
 Outwit on the first click, where it should be! Are you listening to me Spider-man!?!
 Incapacitate at the end of his dial, where it should be.
 STEALTHED OUTWITTER!

It’s that last one that makes this Batman so darn good. Plus the under 50 point thing. As I’ve said time and time again, many cheap figures are better then a large figure. Always look for reasonably priced figures that fill a need or do double duty. Think about Black Panther. For 27 points he is a totally playable, but will probably never attack. So for an extra 20 points you get the Batman Team, a very healable and hard to trap character that can attack twice in a row and has a range. For all of those abilities 20 points is very worth it. So he’s much better then the constantly playable lack Panther. Is he better then 30 points of Mary Jane Pogs and a rookie (Anti-Superman) Intergang agent? Not really. but what is?

HE RECEIVES A 4 OUT OF A POSSIBLE 5 THUMBS UP!

Keep it Clicking
