Now it’s Armor Wars time, Wendigo’s to be more accurate. I have to say, I
love this guy’s sculpt… but that’s all I like about him. He’s a R/E/V… which

one will I do? Certainly not the Rookie: it’s 40 points, and for 39 the LE
Ron Harper Jr. is much much better. Between the Experienced and the Veteran
the difference is 20 points, and I feel you can do better just taking the
Exp. (the vet. is not worth those extra 20) and helping it with a couple of
Feats, maybe… so, the Exp: It’s 61 points, 8 clicks of health, no TA, no
range…. mmm let’s see what else:

Stats:

Speed: 8, 8, 8, 8, 7, 7, 7, 7. It’s Flurry on the 3rd and 4th click, and
then Leap/Climb from 5th to the 7th

Attack: 9, 8, 8, 7, 7, 7, 6, 6. He starts with B/F/C for the firsts 2 clicks

and then moves to Super Strength for the following 4.

Defense: 17, 16, 16, 15, 15, 14, 14, 13. He has Toughness from the 1st to
the 5th click and then Regeneration on the 7h and 8th click.

Damage: 3, 2, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2. It’s Battle Fury the whole dial (eeww!!)

Analysis: Wweellll… in a nutshell, the guy’s not worth its 61 points. For
the same amount you can get better third string attackers… He has no range
nor good movement powers, so he could use Tkers help… but he can’t, because
of Battle Fury… He has Super Strength, but without Charge or HSS, it’s not
really something, and Flurry without a B/F/C of high values, it’s not so
cool either… his values all average at best, except his defense, which I
could agree it’s nice, with those numbers and all that Toughness…

Conclusion: Put ICWO, Automatic Regeneration on him… nah, just trade it to
newbies, maybe they’ll fall for his cool Sculpt :P

Ranking:

No ratings for this…. thingy… I actually don’t see him working well in any
team of any cost…

Wendigo
Veteran
81 points
0 range, 1 target

Speed powers: 2 of Leap/Climb, 3 of Flurry, then finish off with another 3 Leap/Climb
Attack powers: 3 of B/C/F, 4 of Super Strength, then 1 of nothing
Defense powers: 5 of toughness then 3 of Regen
Damage powers: Battle Fury all the way down.

Review: Unlike the previous waste of a good space in a booster pack (something about seeing Joker instead of my Veteran Darkseid pisses me off) This guy is an awesome secondary or close attacker. His numbers, a little low are still good for your point cost and with a good little mix of powers in there. The Battle Fury means no carrying, but who carries anymore except Ant Man as a defender with Amazo? He plays pretty simply, toss him in and let him shred up front. A little down the way, if you feel for it, you can give him the Pounce feat card, and leap in with a heavy object using Super Strength for some big damage, then Regernerate it for free using Auto Regen.

Overall he's a solid secondary piece, but beware of those punks with the long range.

Overall rating:

200 points: 2/5 (not the point range for close range attackers)
300 points: 3/5
400 points: 3.5/5
500+ points: 3/5
