REVIEWED BY CRAMCOMPANY

 

Today we'll be reviewing Black King from Armor Wars

 

Ah the Black King, at first glance we’d assume this is a racist villain in the 30’s, but actually he just has a p*ss poor name.  Black King has a laundry list of pure evil actions; he is the leader of the Hell Fire Club, a mutant that supports hunting other mutants and is responsible for using advertising puns based on the word scary (so cheap it’s scary, scary savings.).  Among other horrors.

 

Unique:  116 points, Brotherhood Team, 0 range with a single target.

MOVEMENT:  A single pointless click of flurry.

 

ATTACK:  Super strength is useless if there is no movement ability with it.  Well, it can give him a ranged attack, so that does help a little…very little.

 

DEFENSE:  Lots of toughness and a poorly timed invulnerability

 

DAMAGE:  3 clicks of exploit weakness, would not be quite as useful as 10 clicks of it, like he should have.  1 click of battle fury at the beginning…that’s terrible.

 

SCULPT:  A nice arrogant pose fitting of the leader of the Hellfire Club.

 

OVERALL: 

  • No move and attack abilities make him already pretty bad

  • A lot of points for a character that never really has a devastating click.  Havok does four damage

  • He has a push click.  Big frown.

  • Nice high attack and defense throughout most of the dial.

  • Long dial.

  • Seriously a push click with battle fury and flurry on it???  Weird.

  • Just a lot of points for something that a lot of 50 point characters do better. 

  • I’m never a big fan of the Hulk style, get better in the middle of the dial characters.

Just a huge disappointment.  Where is the outwit?  Where is the perplex?  Or the leadership for that matter?  Brotherhood of Mutants is pretty useless team ability on a big figure. He is pretty dumb in all expects and basically unplayable in tournaments.  No range bricks are rarely good at all. There are exceptions like Iron Fist, but Black King is no Iron Fist.  Black King is barely a Universe rookie Hulk.  There I said it!

 

SHE RECEIVES 1.5 OUT OF A POSSIBLE 5 THUMBS UP!

 

Good, Bad, I’m the Guy with the Clix
