Today we'll be reviewing Kalibak from
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
He really looks like a Metallic fan during a riot.
I love the fullness of the new sculpts.
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

PS: Here is a more proper review of
Colossal Boy. Thanks to everybody that pointed out
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 :
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
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.
Invulnerability that lasts till the 3rd click, then
is Toughness till the
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.
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
