Dario Lex Luthor

This week’s figures have been picked by me. The theme: not so cool figures
of cool characters, and today we star with Cosmic Justice’s Lex Luthor.
Wizkids says that this version of good ol’ Lex is from the Rock of Ages
storyline, and therefore he has some powers unusual for him, but… which
ones? I mean, it can’t be Leadership, as Lex commands a lot of people (he’s
the boss of Lexcorp, isn’t he?)… it can’t be Outwit, nor Perplex… after all,

it’s Lex Luthor we are talking about! That leaves us Mastermind… and again,
isn’t he a Mastermind of crime? Much more than the Joker, or Riddler (and
they don’t seem to think that Mastermind is unfit for them….) So, I’m still
looking very carefully at the dial, maybe I’m missing something :P Ok, now
seriously, onto the character: He’s 69 points Unique, a Super Enemy (of
course!), No range, 1 target, and:


Speed: 6, 5, 5, 4, 4. No powers.

Attack: 7, 6, 6, 5, 5. No powers.

Defense: 13, 13, 12, 12, 11. Full dial of Mastermind.

Damage: 1, 1, 1, 2, 2. Starts with Leadership, then follow 2 of Perplex and
finishes with 2 of Outwit.

Analysis: Well, clearly this guy is completely unplayable, and here’s why:
With those numbers and without range, he’s obviously not meant to fight.
That takes us to the powers: Leadership has never been an important power,
at least to me… if you want it, just use a figure that’s fighting capable
and has it… or a cheaper, more useful one (Silver Sable comes to mind….)
That just leaves Perplex and Outwit. Forget about them, you’d have to push
for the Perplex… but then, why wouldn’t you just use DEO Agent or Con Artist

instead?? And if you’re planning to push 3 TIMES for the Outwit and at that
point cost…. better go with R BlackPanther. The only place for this guy in a

game is in one against Galactus, and with Brilliant Tactician. There it
would be worth it… maybe

Conclusion: Do I really need to say anything else?

100 – 1/5
200 – 1/5
300 – 1/5

This is Dario, mails to


There is alot of new figures out there, but alot of the mail I get is about old figures.  So this is classic figures week here on POJO.  I hope you enjoy



Today we'll be reviewing Lex Luthor  from Cosmic Justice


            Bald and carrying what looks like an apple....Superman has a hard time with this guy why?



Unique, 69 points, 5 Clicks, Team Ability Anti-Superman



MOVEMENT:  Pathetic 6 and drops


ATTACK:  7 and gets worse


DEFENSE:  Mastermind the entire dial with a 13


DAMAGE: 1 with leadership, (1,1 with perplex), (2,2 with Outwit



ˇ                     To start he is incapable of attacking anything that is not a pog

ˇ                     He is very much like Oracle, but without the card ability.

ˇ                     Nearly 70 points and he starts with leadership

ˇ                     Outwit and Mastermind are good together.

ˇ                     You;d have to push 3 times to get to the outwit

ˇ                     Anti-Superman team ability is one of the best team abilities




            Luthor is truely one of the worst clix ever made.  He's massively massively over costed in points.  He's probably at least 40 points too much.  Even at 30 points he'd still barely be worth itNot even on the theme teams of theme teams can Lex see action.  He's just competely reversed with powers, outwit needs to be first!  GAH!  At least they made a better one in Icons!


0 out of 5 thumbs up



Good, bad, I'm the guy with the clix.




PS:  More reviews on the way.  October is a busy time for us people at www.the-haunt.com.  Happy clicking and happy haunting!
