Hulk 2099
2099 Collector's Set

Rurouni KJS Unique Hulk 2099
giant boot speed
123 points
Team: none
Range: 0 x 1

Dial:

This figure singlehandedly has me interested in the
2099 set. Why? Because this Hulk is a giant, and I've always liked giants in Heroclix. Yeah, they're big targets that everyone on the board can take shots at, and rarely get to deal their real damage potential.
But Hulk is different, thanks to the tremendous 19 defense he starts with. That alone makes him one of the best giants in the game. Leap/Climb gets him where he needs to go -- namely, tying up a crowd of enemy figures. A steady AV, high Damage, Impervious and Flurry means he can deal a lot of hurt to that crowd for a good while. His only weakness is no L/C at the end so he can run off to Regen. Speaking of which...

Feats:
AUTOMATIC REGENERATION is a near-must; his defense tanks and he could get back up to some truly damaging slots in his dial. Or use FORTITUDE to keep him from being easily Outwitted and shot to bits, but his high starting defense and relatively low cost make this card a luxury, not a necessity. Speaking of that high defense, this figure begs for a SIDEKICK. DAMAGE SHIELD is viable for much of his dial. And hey!
Finally a Hulk that can use SHAKE OFF.

Comic accurate?
I never read any 2099 title but the Spidey one. But this is a nice dial for ANY Hulk.

In sum:
Rarely has so much damage potential been seen for such an economical price. Arguably the best giant in Heroclix; maybe the best non-flying brick as well.

Rating: 4/5. Hulk is (almost) the strongest one there is!!!
 
Dario So, it seems that now we’re taking a break from Supernova to take a look at the figures you’ll have if you can get the newest Collector’s Set, 2099. We start off with The Hulk 2099. He’s a Unique, although you know that in these cases it just matter towards the fact that if you’ll be able to use more of
1 of these in your team or not (in this case, you won’t). Obviously a non-flyer, has no archenemy, has no TA, no range, 10 clicks of health. For its 123 points, you get that and also those stats:

Stats:

Speed: 8, 8, 7, 7, 6, 6, 6, 6, 5, 4. 1st, 2nd and 3rd clicks have Leap/Climb, 4th, 5th and 6th have Flurry.

Attack: 10, 10, 10, 10, 9, 9, 9, 8, 8, 7. Super Strength from the 1st till the 8th click, then the last 2 have Quake.

Defense: 19, 18, 17, 16, 16, 16, 15, 15, 14, 13. 1st and 2nd clicks have Invulnerability, 3rd and 4th have Impervious, 5th has Invulnerability again, the following 3 have Toughness and the last 2 have Regeneration.

Damage: 4, 5, 4, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3. 3rd, 4th and 5th clicks have Battle Fury, the 6th has CCE.

Analysis:

His Speed sucks. Mid dial Flurry is certainly nice, but he has low values, and Leap/Climb isn’t much for a 123 points brick to have at the beginning.
Should he had it at the end, and some Charge front loaded, he’d be great.
The way it is… kina sucks :P

His Attack is nice. Starts with a decent 10 and goes drops veeeery slowly.
That’s good. His powers don’t do much for him.

His Defense is sweet! Although it goes downhill rather fast, it starts REALLY high! For the first half of his dial he’s not easy to hit, and on his 2nd half is not too bad, specially considering that opponents’ attack shouldn’t be too high. Besides that, he has a lot of nice damage reduction that will make that already loooong dial even longer!

His Damage is pretty high, for his first 6 clicks he delivers a lot of pain!
(first the 5 and 2 4’s, then the 3’s but with Flurry and that click of CCE).
Even after that, he won’t go below 3. Great.


Conclusion: A brick that can get into a fight against 2 decent clicks at the same time and probably defeat both. It takes some work to take him out, and he delivers some serious damage. The thing is, he has no mobility AT ALL. You’ll definitely need a TKer committed to move him around the board. A couple of feats would probably be of great help, but I’ll leave that last detail to the others

Rating: 3.5/5. I’m not sure I can give a higher rating to a brick

Speed:  Leap Climb then flurry…its alright

Attack:  Pretty consistent values…I’m happy

Defense:  WOW…19?....Ares light basically, regen is a nice little option too

Damage:  Always dangerous, I like

The Good:  Good….consistent attack values

      Really high defense

      High damage

      Long dial and lots of damage reducers keep him around

The Bad:   No move and shoot

     No L/C at end to run away


Feats:   The standards apply…ICWO and Protected….you will also wanna push him, so Shellhead is a good idea.  Autoregen can also do some good on those last 2 clicks if you want.


Overall:    What a monster, from sculpt to numbers, I like him.  He is probably the only piece from this collector’s set that I do like.  He has the attack values to stay dangerous for a while, and the defense is so high it will take a while before he is hit.  If he is, he will most likely land on Impervious, where he will be once again a pain.  You can push him all you want, because he really does not ever get bad.  He has a long dial, and those damage reducers will keep him around to the bitter end, Regeneration can give him a second wind also.  Overall a good, solid click, and one of the better versions of Hulk.  He heeds a tk’er though, and maybe a lockjaw to tie up opponents so you can actually get to them.  That is basically the only reason he is not a 4 star character, he can’t move very well on his own. 

Constructed/Unrestricted:  3.5 / 5

Sealed/Draft:  N/A / 5

 

Overall:  3.5 / 5

 

“Heroclix….they’re cool, addictive, and available….the things practically sell themselves.”
