we are going to review the POG Alfred from the DC
ON POGS: (same as last reviews) Personally hate the
Pogs. I dislike the idea that they can be used in
competitive play to tie up figures or hide behind
with trick shot. Nubula with 10 Aunt May Pogs and
trick shot, pretty much can not be killed. The Fact
that a veteran Superman needs to “break away” with
Iris West-Allen seems ridiculous to me. I love
getting that something extra in the pack and I love
the idea of doing a “save Ben Urich” scenario, but
if we are taking competitive tournament, the Pogs
can be way too abused. I hate playing with them,
but I do when I really want to win.

movement. If your movement is over your points,
then you are fantastic.
8. This is very high for a piece that is only 6
points. While 8 and 9 is a little low in my mind
for competitive play 8 is outrageous in this case.
His attack is 2 higher then his point value. If
that was true for everybody, Ares attack would be
Okay just stop it! He is 6 points with a defense as
high as 40% of the characters in the game. This is
a Pog you can miss on! Wow.
1. Hey one damage is real nice for a Pog
What sculpt? Stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid Pog!
He is Batman Alley, all of them have stealth. This
makes sense of course, but let me be the first to
say. ARGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!! A 6 point, 15 defenses,
stealth character! With a range! This brings me to
Alfred’s secret middle name; “ABUSE THE HECK OUT OF
Of the Pog’s I like Alfred the best. He can hit,
has stealth and a very healthy defense and attack.
But he shouldn’t be in the competitive tournament
play. It’s one thing to have KC Green Lantern or KC
Superman, they are great figures and nearly broken,
but they take a certain amount of dedication to your
point total. Alfred is 6 points. Now every wild
card has stealth, which ironically leads to more
people needing to play trick shot. That leads to
more people wanting to play Pog Alfred’s to put in
front of their trick shot monsters. But since this
review is more about; do you play the figure or
don’t you and not about the general game of
heroclix, (which is still great by any measure), I
must say play him. Why wouldn’t you play him?
How to Beat Him:
Don’t bother. Ignore him or pulse wave. But
wasting one or more attacks on him is horrible. If
you have a Hydra Medic or a DOA Officer that is not
doing anything well that’s different, but honestly
just play around him.
How to Play Him
Well of course you want as many wild cards with
Stealth as possible. Jinx and Loki are my two
favorites. But another idea for him is
to put him in a bush (hindering) in front of a
hypersonic speed character and he will become
blocking terrain. You can’t see Alfred to target,
but you can’t see past him to hit Count Nafaria.
Nafaria gets to run fire for four damage and jump
back behind Alfred.
