REVIEWED BY CRAMCOMPANY

 

Today we'll be reviewing Kalibak from Collateral Damage

 

The son of Darkseid and Half brother of Orien.  Kalibak is often shunned by Darkseid for his “Gosh Darn Hippy Haircut!’  In one comic Darkseid gives Kalibak a Gift card to his barber where he can get a sensible haircut and then a nice steady job.  Kalibak flew into a rage and told Darkseid that he was “a musician!  Just nobody understand my music!”  This tantrum is represented by Battle Fury on his dial.

 

Unique:  140 points, No Team

 

 

MOVEMENT:  I really hate when characters start with phasing or leap climb and then get a move and attack.  This lowers the value of the move and attack greatly.  I do love flurry.

 

ATTACK:  I would say pretty good.  Not KC good, but with a lot of spikes and few dips below 9, he’ll always be able to hit.  Super Strength and Quake are almost too standard to mention.

 

DEFENSE:  Sure he has a 17 and an 18 spike.  That is definitely nice, but I think he should have more and better damage reducers for his point cost.  Impervious then three clicks of Invulnerability and Toughness for the entire dial is what I would have liked to have seen.

 

DAMAGE:  Finally a character that starts off with his best click of damage.  His damage should be four for a lot longer, but at least it is 3 for most of his dial, then back up to four.

 

SCULPT:  He really looks like a Metallic fan during a riot.  I love the fullness of the new sculpts.

 

OVERALL: 

*       Decent damage for the points, but remember Havok does 4 damage and he’s 44 points.

*       Battle Fury randomly inserted in will definitely ruin his 4 range.

*       He stays useful for his amazing 11 clicks.  More then most Superman figures.

*       If this game was just one figure vs. one figure, he’d be amazing and would outlast most figures.

*       This game is not one figure vs. one figure.

*       Battle fury at the end makes him hard to be carried away and healed.

 

 

Once again I am reviewing a Brick character.  He reminds me most of Ulik, about the same point cost, defense and damage.  Ulik is so much better though.  He never has Battle Fury and he has Close Combat Expert.  The reason I mention Ulik is he is still never really played, but he is much better then Kalibak.  Thus Kalibak is not that great.  He is a 3 thumbs up brick when compared to bricks, but he is being compared to everyone.

 

“Kalibak!  You Dang It Hippy Cut Your Hair”

 

 

SHE RECEIVES 2 OUT OF A POSSIBLE 5 THUMBS UP!

 

Good, Bad, I’m the Guy with the Clix

Dario Kalibak

Today is the turn for Kalibak. This guy is one of the most powerful
Darkseid's servants. He's very dumb and hardly a match for Superman, who
always kicks his rear. This is a character I wanted them to make. How good
is he? Let's take a look, shall we?: He comes at 140, and for that you get a

guy with no TA, 4 range 1 target, 11 clicks of health, he doesn't fly
(something I've been forgetting to mention) and :

Stats:

Speed: 9, 8, 8, 7, 7, 6, 6, 5, 5, 4, 4. Starts with Phasing, then follows 2
clicks of Charge, and finally he has 3 clicks of Flurry, from the 6th till
the 8th

Attack: 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 8, 9, 10, 10, 9, 8. SuperStrength from the 1st till

the 6th, then it's Quake till the end.

Defense: 17, 16, 15, 18, 17, 16, 15, 14, 15, 16, 17. Starts with
Invulnerability that lasts till the 3rd click, then is Toughness till the
7th click.

Damage: 4, 3, 3, 3, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4. He has Battle Fury on the 3rd, 4th,

5th clicks and then from the 8th till the end :S

Analysis: Well his Speed is a problem. You'll definitely are going to have
to use a TKer with him, if you want him to actually do something before he
dies, because he lacks a decent range and good enough move and shot powers.
That being said, that little bit of Charge might come in handy with the
SuperStrength, and that Flurry could prove useful sometimes. The Attack is
nice, almost always decent (he has only one 7!) SuperStrenght isn't so
great, except for those Charge clicks. Quake. I dunno. His Defense, there I
have a little problem I'd like him to have a little more Invulnerability or
a click or 2 of Impervious. or the very least Toughness all the way.. I'm
not sure the spike in the end is too bad: you can't heal, but his attack and

Damage are very nice! And the, precisely, the Damage: I'd like it to either
have some powers, like Exploit Weakness or CCE. I mean, that or have higher
numbers. The Battle Fury doesn't hurt him THAT much: his range isn't really
something, and on the clicks he has BF I don't know if you'd try to TK him.
still, it bothers.

Conclusion: I'm not sure. with ICWO and a Perplexer this guy could be a
beast (his damage would be a 4 or a 5 almost all the time, and/or help his
defense), and he has a long enough dial. But I don't know. if you can deal
with his mobility problems, try him out. After all, he does leave enough
room on a 300p team.

Ranking:

100 - N/A
200 - 1/5 Good luck champ :P
300 - 2.5/5 Hey, maybe.
400 - 2.25/5 I'm not sure about him here..
500 - 3/5He can be a good brick him, I think
