Sorry to all my fans who have missed
me, a few vertigos and kid quantoms teamed up on me
and I was inccapacitated. Today we review the new
magneto from armor wars. This magneto is a pretty
hardcore brick, one that would be made twice as
hardcore if he had pulsewave on his first click as
well, but that might push his cost beyond
playability. Is this an accurate magneto? Yes, very
much so. Is it an acccurate magneto from the wanda
has recreated the world to make everyone happy
storyline? Not so much, bnut thats not too
important, just slap an older magneto sculpt on this
dial and you have a great click. Is he a good
candidate from nova blast? I would think so, but he
would need some tk backup to do it right, running
shot out and hit someone for 5, push to running shot
back, rest, next turn TK him out and have fun.
Fortitude is almost a must for him. He really is
meant for larger point games, because on click 9 he
becomes a nice support piece giving you barrier and
outwit, and you can make use of that frontloaded
100: im running out of jokes like this/5
200: 1.989/5 He is strong enough to hold his own but
your paying for a lot you wont get to use properly
300: 2.436/5 Nicely holds up here with a medic, a
TKer and some thrid string attackers
400: 3.190/5 might actualy get to use that leader
500: 3.421/5 He might get knocked down pretty fast
by the bigger guns, but if that impervious holds up
he will pose a very serious threat.

Well, it's certainly a while since we
did a Marvel' character, so i guess it's only fthat
we do some this week. And boy, we atart with a very
known, and powerful one. Magneto. I think this
version of him is from Ultimates, but i could
easilly be mistaken :P. I'm not gonna waste time
yapping about him, because i'm assuming you're
familiar with this guy. So, onto the
figure: Pretty neat sculpt, hefty cost (at 187!), 10
clicks of health, 10 range, 1 target, and the
Brotherhood TA.. and:
Speed: 12,10, 9, 9, 8, 8, 8, 8, 7, 7. The 1st is
Running Shot and Force Blast the last 3.
Attack: 12, 11, 10, 10, 10, 9, 9, 9, 9, 9. Pulse
Wave from the 2nd till the 4th and the following 3
are Quake, and no more.
Defense: 17, 16, 15, 17, 16, 15, 16, 15, 15, 14.
Starts with Impervious for 3, then moves to
Invulnerability for 3, then comes Toughness for 2
and finishes with 2 of Barrier.
Damage: 5, 4, 4, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 2, 2. Starts with 2
of Leadership and then has Outwit for the last 3.
Analysis: I haven't a lot of time for this review,
so it'll be quick and painful :P I'll just compare
him with a very good character of similar cost, U
Thor. This guy's defense is much better, but his
damage and attack values are lower. Is he
unplayable? No, but he's not really good either, and
that's mainly because he has no movement powers
asaide from a single RS click. If he had Pulse Wave
with Running Shot at the same time, maybe he would a
good character for Nova Blast. But he isn't.
Conclusion: If you are a fan of his, build a team
aroudn him, you can make it work probably. But there
are better ones to go with.I'll be giving him a
