Dario Red Tornado

Hi people, how is it going? Welcome to the 3rd COTD this week… what? no,
this is not the last, I told you we were gonna make it up to you, didn’t I?
Anyway, back to what brought us here: Red Tornado. Like the others, we’re
reviewing his R/E/V, and like the others, I plan on focusing on the Vet. He
costs 67 points, 6 range 1 target, no TA, 7 clicks of health:


Speed: 11, 10, 9, 9, 9, 8, 8. Force Blast everywhere but his 2nd and 3rd

Attack: 9, 9, 8, 8, 8, 8, 7. Tk for his first 3 clicks, then 2 of Quake,
then 2 of Smoke Cloud.

Defense: 18, 16, 16, 15, 15, 15, 14. Starts with Willpower, then follows 3
clicks of Energy Shield/Deflection, then is Willpower again for 2 clicks.

Damage: 3, 3, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2. CCE on his last 2 clicks.

Analysis: Well, first that anything, I think that ,like Ragman, he’s well
represented; and also like Rags, his sculpt is very cool. That being said,
let’s see how useful this guy can be: I love his defense, he stays very hard

to hit until his 5th click (if you can keep his Energy S/D from being
Outwitted) I Especially love him starting with a 18 def and Willpower. His
damage is ok for his cost I guess. Can actually be nice, but that’s actually

near the end, and I dunno if you’ll wanna risk him into close combat in
those circumstances. His attack is ok too, nothing especial… but his Tk is,
it’s what makes him useful and the reason you’d use him: a Tker that can
give a good fight. His Quake isn’t anything especial, and his Smoke Cloud…
well.. Anyway, his Speed: well, clearly, nothing to say… decent numbers…
Force Blast on him, with the changes, is not gonna be too bad, but neither
is it gonna be much better :S…

Conclusion: Not too sure about 300 points games, I think even there he MIGHT

be nice… any higher, he can be great… the only other Tker competing for his
position would be V Jhonny Alpha. Who is best? I’m not sure… Depends on your

style I guess.


100 – 1/5 Nope…
200 – 1.5/5 I wouldn’t recommend it…
300 – 2/5 Why not? try him…
400+ – 3/5 Have fun!


I wanna dedicate this whole week of COTD to the guys in the Heroclix Forum:
GhostRider2099, Hollow Gollem, Gambit121, Smaug317, RurouniKJS, etc., etc.!
