Dario Cannonball

Today it's Cannonball, from Armor Wars. Like Monday's guy, I have no idea who this is. obviously it's a X-Man, but there soooo many. anyway, this dude

comes in the form of a R/E/V. which is best? Clearly not the rookie, as Cap.

Mako is cheaper and much much better. Between the Exp. and the Vet. there is

a great difference in the cost. and also in the dials. but not that much.
well, as you see, I can't decide, so I'll just go with the Vet., as I usually do when it's not very clear which is better. So, it costs 111 points, it has the X-Men TA, no range, 7 clicks of health... and:

Stats:

Speed: 12, 10, 10, 10, 8, 8, 7. Charge from the 1st to the 5th click.

Attack: 10, 10, 9, 9, 8, 8, 7. No Powers

Defense: 17, 16, 16, 16, 15, 15, 14. Starts with 2 of Impervious, follows 2 of Invulnerability, then 1 of Toughness and ends with 2 of Defend.

Damage: 3, 2, 3, 2, 2, 1, 1. Close Combat Expert the last 3 clicks

Analysis: This guy is almost the opposite of Cap. Mako. It has an almost useless TA, it has no range (if you are my main attacker and you cost 111 points you better have a decent range, or else be a monster like Ultimate
Hulk) Just ok numbers and no Powers on the attack dial is already sucky. His

movement dial is not so bad, decent numbers and a lot of Charge, but that's not gonna decide anything. His defense is also just ok, not bad, but no spectacular (and I don't get the Defend in the end, rather have more damage reducing Powers) And finally his damage dial. bad, actually, he can hit for
3 at max, and that's no even for the whole dial. and if midgame this guys falls on his CCE clicks, that can easily be Outwitted.

Conclusion: I don't think I have much to say. a pretty useless TA, barely decent Defense and Speed dials and bad Damage and Attack dials (well, the attack is almost decent) for the cost, all that makes him a very poor choice.

Ranking:

100 - N/A
200 - 1/5 Not enough room
300 - 1.5/5 Here you have the room, but anyway, he sucks.
400 - 1.5/5 He still sucks, and bigger guns here.
500+ - 2/5 I'm just being nice :P
