Today's review is Nova from Supernova

 

Time for normal nova, I wasn’t too thrilled with his LE, lets see the ones everyone can get.

 

The best of the three is the veteran.

 

He is 87 points, 10 range 1 target, a flier, and no team

Speed:  Charge…followed….by HSS…..sigh. At least phasing is at the end to run away, high numbers too

Attack:  Alright values…nothing wowing me

Defense:  Just cant ever have the 18 up front

Damage:  not great, charge and CCE do not work

The Good:  He gets HSS

      He can do some damage with an object

      High front defense

      HSS and Charge work with Super Strength

      10 range

The Bad:   Basically a push click character

     Gets HSS without a 10 attack

    Really craps out at the end

    
Feats:   Protected is a must, if you time it right you can push click onto his second click, ICWO helps too…like it does everyone.  Nanobots works good too.


Overall:    Man, this dial is out of wack.  His numbers are at the worst spots and his powers aren’t even in the best spots.  The combinations aren’t bad outside of the CCE and Charge…if it was at the end of his dial he would be dangerous the whole time.  The HSS comes with a not so great attack, and the most that gives him so potential with that big range.  There is a problem too, he is mainly a close combat piece who has a 10 range and only gets to use it with HSS…but then he only has a 2 damage.  Against all the damage reduction in the set, he sucks for sealed.  Actually, he could be good if used right and planned out right, but he is not really a force.  I say, go with the LE. 

Constructed/Unrestricted:  2 / 5

Sealed/Draft:  1.5 / 5

 

Overall:  2 / 5

Dario Hello everyone! Today I’ll be checking out Veteran Nova, just for you. This clix, from Marvel’s Supernova, costs 87 points. He has no archenemy, is a flyer, has no TA, 10 range 1 target and 8 clicks of health:

Stats:

Speed: 8, 10, 10, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12. First 3 clicks have Charge, next 3 clicks have HSS and the last 2 have Phasing/Teleport.

Attack: 9, 10, 10, 9, 9, 8, 8, 7. First 5 clicks have Super Strength.

Defense: 17, 18, 17, 16, 15, 15, 14, 13. 1st to 4th click have Toughness, 5th till 7th he has Energy Shield/Deflection. Last one is empty.

Damage: 2, 2, 3, 3, 2, 2, 2, 1. 1st and 2nd clicks have CCE, and that’s its.

Analysis:

His Speed is messed up. Ending high values with Phasing rules and goes great with his heal-friendly defense. However, HSS should be front loaded and backed up by Charge, not the other way around. This hurts him a lot

His Attack values are ok, but don’t like my guys not starting with the best… Super Strength with Charge and HSS is sweet.

His Defense is not too bad, his first half has nice values with Toughness, which while not amazing, it’s ok. Second half allows him to be healed rather easily, but remains hard to hit from range. Ok.

His Damage is not what I’d like… it’s kind of low…


Conclusion: I look at his dial and feel like I’m looking those puzzle games where you have to arrange the pieces to form the figure… If everything were where it belongs, he’d be much to broken. Unfortunately, the way he is, he’s almost the complete opposite of broken :S I’d say this: don’t play him, but if you see him on your opponent’s team, don’t underestimate him.

Rating: 2.35/5.
