Today we'll be reviewing GeneGrafted Brain
from Collateral Damage
Oh dear sweet mother mercy! They made a Hyper Sonic
Speed, Telekinesis Brain. You can hit and run with
a Brain in a jar. Heroclix simultaneously got much,
much, more funny and much, much, more dorky at the
same time. This is a piece I show my friends and
hide from my girlfriend.
LE: 117 points, No Team
4 Clicks of Hypersonic Speed with an 8 range. That
means he can shoot you from 17 squares away. Now
that is an impressive Range. He also has charge…but
since you’ll be running and shooting, you’ll
probably end up too far away to use it.
Telekinesis. This is very exciting and may make
him.eh..her…eh…BRAIN playable. He can be very good
support, by throwing your characters into battle and
then being able to move himself. He also has
incapacitate, which is sometimes useful. This means
he does not HAVE to outwit impervious to damage to
This is a big weakness. 16 is very low for a
character that is 117 points. Brain will always
have to hit and run. This makes his damage powers
somewhat moot. Barrier is great, because this adds
volumes to his supporting character niche. Barrier
and Outwit is also a very nice combo.
Grrr….. Ranged Combat Expert and Hyper Sonic Speed
can not be used together. Rarely will you want to
use it, because of his very hittable 16 defense.
But I suppose it is their if you need it. Outwit is
great and in some nice places, although the front of
the dial would have been the best place for outwit,
this will make the brain quite useful for a while.
IT’S A FREAKIN’ SUPER BRAIN! YES!
I am a big fan of characters that can TK out your
entire and then move and shoot.
Lots of confusing power combos. HSS + Ranged
Combat, HSS + BARRIER, TK + RANGED COMBAT
He fills a lot of cheaper character rolls and is
still a decent secondary attacker.
He’s a kick butt fighting Brain!
Low Defense, but a very long dial.
He’s easy to heal and a great candidate for Life
4 clicks of HSS is 1 more then I would expect on
His attack gets very, very low.
The big thing about the Brain is strategy. He
combines for about 3 different characters in one
nice piece. What you need to ask yourself is that
what you want. Wouldn’t Jean Gray, Aurora and a
cheap barrier character be a lot better and harder
to kill? I believe that more figures are better,
but with the cards that you end up stacking on
Aurora and your other support pieces the point cost
has been driven up.
GeneGrafted Brain is very, very close to being
awesome, but needs something small. A 17 defense or
a 10 attack with a slower attack drop would have
made him fabulous. In Contact would help, but you
want to up his damage with that card. Still he is
great for an LE and he has a certain intangible that
you can not see in his stats. That intangible is he
is a Brain on pedestal that has Hyper Sonic Speed!
He’s too funny not too play.
