5 is the highest rating

Dario In this occasion we have Wonder Woman, from Icons. Yes, we get yet another
version of her. The previous version of her were all decent, playable
characters. Let’s see about this one:

Rookie 84points, No TA, No range, 8 clicks of health.
Exp. 109points, JLA TA, No range, 9 clicks of health.
Vet. 127points, JLA TA, No range, 10clicks of health

All flyers.

Normally I’d do the vet. I like veterans better, as they are the most
powerful part of every figure, but given that the tree are playable (that’s
unusual), and the fact that I’m confident that Scott will do the vet., I’ll
go with the rookie:

Stats:

Speed: 8, 8, 8, 7, 7, 7, 6, 6. Charge the 1st and 2nd, and that’s it.

Attack: 9, 9, 9, 8, 8, 8, 7, 7. Super Strength from the 1st to the 5th
click, followed by 2 of Incapacitate, and that’s it.

Defense: 16, 16, 15, 15, 15, 14, 14, 13. 1st is Invulnerability, then
Toughness up to the 5th and finished with 3 of Willpower.

Damage: 4, 4, 3, 3, 3, 2, 2, 2. No powers.

Analysis: Her defense values and powers aren’t spectaculars, but neither are

them sucky. With Probability Control or ICWO, or maybe just trying to keep
her on hindering terrain, she’ll be ok. The same goes for her attack, it’s
just a little bit low… Her speed is nothing impressive but, again, it
doesn’t suck and that Charge will be useful. Finally, the damage… it’s not
the BEST EVER, but it’s certainly high. Now, if you see this character, you
might think “is it worth it to put her on a team?” probably not. But add
ICWO, Unstoppable, Haymaker, throw Deep Shadows and be sure to have Perplex
on your team and maybe some Probability Control, and she’s a very neat
character to play, and a monster as a secondary attacker in 500 points team.

Conclusion: I think I’ve said everything above.

Ranking:
100 – 1.5/5 It’s not 1 because they may never get to hit him :P
200 – 2.5/5 With some support, why not make her you 1st attacker?
300 – 3/5 Just splash ICWO and let her wreck havoc.
400+ – 3.5/5.

Wonderwoman REV

Veteran 127 points. 0 range 1 attack JLA team

10,10,8,8,8,7,7,7,6,6 3 clicks of charge on the 1st three clicks
10,10,9,9,9,8,8,8,7,7 7 clicks of super strength, then 3 of Incapicitate
17,16,16,16,15,15,15,14,14,13 1 imperv, 2 invuln, 4 tough, 3 Willpower
5,5,4,4,3,3,3,2,2,2

Experienced 109

From the vet:

-1 click of charge, super strength, and invulerability.

-1 click of health and five damage spot

overall numbers drop slightly

Rookie 84

From the vet:

-1 click of charge, incapcitate, invuln,

-2 clicks of Super Strength

-2 clicks of health, and no 5 damage spot

Drop the first two clicks of the vet and that's pretty much her numbers.

no team ability

Review: Alright, today we got ourselves the most beautiful Lynda Carter who spun around to turn into Wonder Woman and fight the forces of evil. Well, maybe not, but if you don't know who this is, you've been living in a cave.

Now Wonder Woman has quite a few good things going for her. Charge is good. Super Strength is good. Charge and Super Strength is really good. Now you want to add in a whopping 5 base damage? Incredible. And she flies. And she moves for free. Her point value likewise is incredible. 109 points for a base 5 damage? I would like to point out that the next cheapest figure to have 5 damage is Darkseid with 141 points and you don't need to push to get hers either.

Now the bad side of things. She's not really to brick status as her attack and defense stats are not too high, and with only 3 clicks between imperv and invul a solid shot will drop her to Toughness and that much easier to hit. The incapicitate should be good, but without range you aren't doing much. Willpower is likewise meh, and generally you won't be able to get to use it.

Feats to use: Rip it Up can be great with her, to boost up the damage, as well as Large Object to give her a boost to her otherwise lackluster attack.
Divebomb, one of the new feats, I don't really recommend with her as you're dropping 2 attack for being able to attack from soaring.

The Ratings (for the vet only)

200 points: 2/5 (A little rentsy for the point value)

300 points: 3.25/5 (Solid here)

400 points: 2.75/5 (You're going to see some big guns she won't be able to keep up with)

500+ points: 2.5/5 (See 400 point comments)
