For those unfamiliar with the
character, Terra was a teen titan back in the
1980's, and was the centerpiece of one of their
greatest tales, the Judas Contract. She betrayed
the team horribly, and nearly destroyed them.
This has been done on the Toon Network Teen
Titans cartoon as well, which is likely why they
made the figure. On to the review.
Basics: 60 points, 6 clicks of
life, 8 range / 1 target, Teen Titans ability
Terra starts off with an
average 8 move with Force Blast. Makes sense for
the character, and is actually far more useful
than most people think.
8 to start, complimented
by Quake. Spikes in the middle of her dial to 9
when she gets her pulse wave. A trifle low, but
then again, so is her cost.
16 is decent, but it's
the barrier that lets her shine. It makes her a
terrific figure for the defense game. She later
in the dial gets ES/D, which helps her fly out
the gate and become a full on attacking piece.
Fluxes a bit, but at one
point is at a 4( ! ), which is quite nice. never
drops below 2.
Some will overlook
her. Some will say she's a bad piece. Some just
truly don't understand the value of a click
unless it's a simple to use, point and click
character like Ultimate Thor. Terra gives the
Titans a truly nasty threat. Sure, her attack is
a bit low when compared to others. But not every
figure can have a 12 attack, ok? The Barrier
helps protect her fellow Titans (or other
teammates), the Quake takes care of swarms, the
Pulse wave helps sting peeps with defensive
powers like toughness. I really hope I pull one
of these sweet babies when I get my hands on
