I MISSED SENDING IN MY DOCTOR LIGHT REVIEW SO HERE
Today we'll be reviewing Dr. Light from
“Physicist, Rapist, Retard and Quitter, thus has
been the career of Dr. Light. He first attempted to
take out the Justice League, then found that too
hard he attacked the Teen Titans. After failing to
kill even a single Teenager he settled for raping
the wife of a member of the Justice League.
Although…he was caught and had his mind wiped. Thus
Identify Crisis starts and that starts Infinite
Crisis, which start my current comic buying spree.”
Rookie: 57 points, Calculators Team
Experienced: 40 points, Suicide Squad Team
Veteran: 82 points, Calculators Team
Who is the Best:
I like all of them. A LOT! The Experienced is
cheap, has one of the best (most under-rated) team
abilities in the game and has an amazing combo of
mastermind and Suicide Squad. He shovels off damage
and then heals when he kills the character he just
damaged. However, he’s worthless if he’s based by a
grounded figure and he had a pretty low attack and
range. The Veteran and Rookie are pretty much the
same character, only the Vet is more powerful for
more points. In seriously competitive play I will
probably use Dr. Light’s Rookie version, because I
do not have the points to waste and would rather
feat up a Rookie then play a naked Veteran. Yet
that is only taking into account competitive play at
300 point tournaments, the Veteran is clearly the
superior piece, even for the extra points.
A huge exception to the rule. No movement powers,
but he’s still really good. Just wait keep reading.
10 is a decent attack and Pulse Wave is great.
Incapacitate is purely wasted on his opening click
and that is a major complaint of mine. When you can
do five damge, why would you Incap? His attack
takes a steady predictable drop, so try to keep him
near his first two clicks.
Boom! This is massive 19 defense from ranged and 17
from close. He drops, but not well enough for an
easy heal. Consider giving him a Suicide Squad team
ability to copy and putting some Lian Harper Pogs
Boom! A fatal 5 from range. If you can keep him
from being based by a grounded figure, he’ll always
do a lot of damage.
I like that the experienced has his classic beard,
but the Veteran has his new shaved “I’m no longer
retarded” look. But his “Stop in the Name
of Love” pose is not the best.
Trick Shot, Protected, Incontact with Oracle are all
feats that would do never well on the good doctor
Pushing him once will not hurt him.
Even if you do not give him stealth, your opponent
is likely to miss on a 19 defense.
Keeping a Lockjaw near him to help him run away is
Disbanded and Poor Team Work will wreck him. So
will the rare people using Reflector Sheild.
Could he be a Nebula replacement?
I’ve been drooling over Dr. Light for quite a bit.
Usually each set has about 5 characters that will
see consistent play, Superman, Dr. Midnight, Emerald
Empress, OMAC and more then likely Dr. Light,
(Shadow Lass be played a lot too). Again, I think I
will play the Rookie and use the extra points to
build into his team ability power. The Veteran will
be heavily protected, essentially 20 defense
standing on an object and 5 ranged damage is sure to
really hurt somebody. Pushing and sacrificing an
adjacent Lian Harper POG should be very common
occurrence. I recommend carting him around with a
Lockjaw and using Trickshot. Ironically your
opponents Lockjaw can easily base Dr. Light and with
the Dog’s long dial he will be Light’s greatest
foe. Incontact with Oracle (with Oracle) and
Trickshot can allow him to outwit anybody’s defense
and deal 6 clicks the hard way.
Dr. Light is not that great on his own and not a
powerful draft choice, but he is an amazing
constructed character. Watch out for Disbanded and
Poor Team work and he may be able to dish out the
proper revenge on all of those that messed with his
So just to sum up Physicist + Rapist + Retard +
Quitter = Very Good Hero Click,
but so does Dog + Tuning Fork.
SHE RECEIVES 4.5 OUT OF A POSSIBLE 5
Good, Bad, I’m the Guy with the Clix
Props to Dario for making the very
accurate Hawkeye comparison. He’s no Hawkeye (5
Thumbs Up Character), but with the right team he
could be a very close second.
