Majinxstar Today we look at the Governor of California Mr. Freeze HA HA HA! What I'm not funny? Ridiculous movies aside we have a heroclix from the new Legacy set to review.
Why we go from a great fig like Bats to this I don't know. I also don't know why he has stealth. If I lived in Gotham and I saw a bank being robbed and there was a big hole in the side and ice all over the place I would know who was robbing the bank and it isn't Iceman and that isn't very stealthy. Mr. Freeze has a movement of 7 with stealth to start out, for one click. His vet has a whopping attack of 9 with incappacitate for when he freezes you. He has barrier and a 16 defense. I hate the barrier power, but it can be very useful if your opponent is aggresive. He has Ranged Combat Expert which would make him a threat if his attack was a little higher. He has good points and bad points, but he can have amazing effects on theme teams and if your good at Arnold you can have alot of fun with that.

Constructed:2.5 (Better barrier people out there)
Sealed:1.5 (Spend the points on Arsenal)

Mr. Freeze. Ignore the crappy Batman movie that had Arnold portraying this character. The comic-written Mr. Freeze is a Bad-A$$. Does his figure do him justice? Let's find out...

Cost~ Rookie~ 49 points, 5 clicks of life, 6 range / 1 target, Anti-Batman team ability

          Experienced~ 66 points, 6 clicks of life, 8 range / 1 target, Anti-Batman team ability

          Veteran~ 77 points, 6 clicks of life, 8 range / 2 target, Anti-Batman team ability

           LE~ 75 points, 6 clicks of life, 8 range / 2 target, Anti-Batman team ability

Movement~ Mr. Freeze is about as fast as an iceberg on his click. He starts out with a move of 7 on all but the rookie (6), with a click or 2 of stealth. The stealth is nice, but you'll need a taxi to get him around.

Attack~  Starts out at 9 on all but the rookie (8), and incapacitate on all but the final click. Decent, but like all batman enemies, seems underpowered as the numbers slide off as he gets damaged.

Defense~  16 on the Vet and LE, 15 on the Rookie and Experienced, all have barrier followed by toughness. Bleh, with how few clicks of health he has, a bigger piece will have him blown down to toughness in one swipe.

Damage~  2's through most of it, final click of 1. A couple of clicks of RCE at the front of the dial. This is the difference for the LE, as it rounds out with 2 clicks of Outwit at the end of its dial, the other versions don't.

Sculpt~ Nice, simple. It fits the character quite well, and doesn't try to overdo it. Thank gawd they didn't do the corny Arnie look from the movie. And the LE looks particularly nice with the clear blue "ice" look.

Final Thoughts~ I think there are way better pieces out there to spend the points on. You just don't quite get enough bang for the buck so to speak. He'll fit in in a theme team, he'll be a decent enough draw in a sealed booster, but I just can't see him getting any play in serious tournaments.

Tournament Play: 2.0 / 5

Sealed Booster: 2.75 / 5

Friendly Play: 2.5 / 5
