REVIEWED BY CRAMCOMPANY

 

Today we'll be reviewing Felix Faust from Collateral Damage

 

Felix Faust is a Magician.  A Magician that has a neat little wheel, a pot and I think a really weird bell.

 

Unique:  96 points, Mystics Team

 

 

MOVEMENT:  Wow, terribly movement combined with no movement abilities…oh wait force blast.

 

ATTACK:  I have used energy explosion two or three times out of the 1,000 times I could have used it.   The fact that he has Psychic Blast is great, but why on his second click.  If he has it on his first click he’d be much better.  Pulse Wave is never a bad thing and quake is really never used.

 

DEFENSE:  Barrier a very nice ability for a second string character like Felix

 

DAMAGE:  Great, great, great.  3 damage with perplex to start is very nice.  Probability Control is a nice second ability.  His damage does get low too fast so he can no be pushed.

 

SCULPT:  Holding the click in front of me, I can safely say he looks about 47 times more Sissy then he does in the picture.

 

OVERALL: 

*       One of the better team abilities in the game.

*       10 attack is pretty good for new sets.

*       No move and shoot is always a major negative.

*       If he had Psychic Blast to start he’s be at least a four star character

*       Very versatile

*       Damage, Attack and Defense all drops very fast

*       His defense never drops below a 14 and that will make him hard to heal.

*       His 7 clicks of life will go quickly without any damage reduction.

 

Versatile is the key word with Faust.  At first look he is terrible, low defense and no move and shoot should make him terrible, but on second look he may be pretty good.  He is a very good support piece that can be a third string attacker.  He has Mystics, which is great for copying and will usually run you 50 points or so.  He has Perplex which is at least a 11 point ability.  He has Barrier which is at least thirty points.  If you combine all of those points, he feels about right.   On a 500 to 600 point game I really think that he may be a good choice.  He just has a lot of good options and that’s what makes him playable.  Beware, protect him well, because he has a glass jaw and is easy to hit.

 

SHE RECEIVES 3.5 OUT OF A POSSIBLE 5 THUMBS UP!

 

Good, Bad, I’m the Guy with the Clix

Dario heroclix, Faust

We close this “Unique baddies” week with Felix Faust. I don’t know too much about this guy, just that he’s supposed to be a powerful dude. So, let’s see

what his click is like: Weighing at 96 points, he has 7 clicks of life, 8 range 1 target, Mystics TA, and:

Stats:

Speed: 7, 7, 7, 7, 6, 6, 5. Force Blast from the 3rd till the 5th click.

Attack: 10, 9, 8, 8, 7, 7, 7. Starts with Energy Explosion, follows 3 clicks

of Psychic Blast, then 2 of Quake and ends with Pulse Wave.

Defense: 16, 15, 15, 15, 15, 14, 14. 3 clicks of Barrier at the beginning and nothing else.

Damage: 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 1. It’s Perplex from the 1st till the 4th click and the rest is Probability Control.

Analysis: At 96 points he’s not too cheap, aka he should be able to do some

damage or be a great support piece, or a bit of those… but what can he do?
Well his Speed sucks completely: No powers (well, he does have… nahhh) and even the values are poor. So he has can’t move on his own. His attack is not

that bad, but drops a little fast for my taste. Besides I hate the fact that

he doesn’t start with Psychic Blast… I don’t like Energy Explosion. Quake doesn’t hurt, but it’s nothing special, at least for him. That final click of Pulse Wave can be good… I guess. His defense is rather low and he has no damage reducing abilities… that sucks… he only has Barrier, which can be useful… but I dunno, I like Barrier on cheaper guys… Finally, his Damage is very low for a 96 figure… Perplex and PC are way cool but….

Conclusion: You’d basically be using him for Perplex and Probability Control… but for that, you could just use a Con Artist or DEO Agent, and Destiny… they are equally fragile, and like him don’t do anything else.

Ratings:
100 – 1/5
200 – 1/5
300 - 1/5
400+ – 1.2/5 :P
