Move over, Polaris; there’s a new Pulse-wave
Princess in town! (Yeah; I realize she’s an
Let’s look at the REV that WK previewed for us.
Sculpt: I have personally never seen this crazy lady
in comics before, so the only thing I know about her
is that she’s a member of the Fatal Five. The sculpt
that was done actually looks competent; no ape face
or anything. She looks like she’s supposed to be
imposing, and she might actually be able to do that
if she weren’t wearing that shade of green…
Dial Breakdown: They all look the same. The key
phrase with this REV set is running shot pulse wave
+ 4 base damage. Lowest front loaded AV is 9, which
is the new standard, just like pink is the new
black. I’m not sure if I agree with either…
My only gripe is that her late dial falls short of
the rest of the set, and the trend of figures
getting consistent dials. She’s incredibly
front-loaded. But check out that front end, eh?
Hotter than an El Camino that’s been sitting on the
top story of a parking garage for three hours
The rookie is great: 4 damage running shot range 6
pulse wave should automatically scream Nova Blast to
you. She’s got some invulnerability, so she can take
a hit, but she is easy to hit. She could replace LE
Polaris in teams that use her, and with her Wildcard
powers, she could surpass her in every way, and she
costs only 5 more points. So someone has to go
without some In Contact with Oracle… big whoop.
The Experienced version is a beefed up rookie, with
a boosted 8 range. This one is probably the best
version to go with if you want a one trick Pulse
wave nuke. The Veteran makes a good front line
fighter. The rookie can take the place of the
Experienced version, but you should really dig for
the 7 points to burn.
The veteran has a frontloaded 10 AV and 17 DV. With
the new changes being made in Heroclix recently,
those are some awesome stats. You may actually want
to hold of setting her off and nuking the playing
field right away. At 102 points, that’s an awesome
dial. Same 8 range, running shot 4 damage pulse
wave… and some of you thought that the new dial
designer had no Velveeta-sense.
Another member of the Fatal Five that will own in
friendly games. But in tournament play, probably not
so much. She costs a lot, which is her main failing.
LE Polaris is a bit cheaper than this psycho, and
her green hair is metallic. Still, with the right
support, she may very well help to further disband
the LAMP combo that legitimate players loathe so
much, and is a worthwhile threat to the veteran
Icons Superman that has since dominated tournament
If she has the right support.
4.25 out of 5
Ok im going to tell you all my theory. at the desk
of one of the head creators of the DC sets there
sits, a decapirated nimrod figure missing an arm,
and all dirty and chewed up. that person is thinking
"ok, how can i take the only trully good high priced
figure marvel has ever made and make it competely
useless" this is the person responsible for braniac,
and for the superman blue, and for emeral empress.
ok so she doesnt have the range or attack of nimrod,
but you can fit three of her in his place, and itll
still cost you less points. and less we forget like
i did once, nova blast is one time use so three of
these with a nova blast each is better than a nimrod
with three nova blasts. she even gets runing shot to
overcome the problems keeping superman blue from
being as good as nimrod for less than half the
points. now granted once again, shes missing alot
nimrod has, like outwit and regeneration, and
amazing stats, and i will still use nimrod out of
sheer love of the figure, but she will make it
tough. and this is just the rookie im looking at so
far, lets whip out the experianced. For 7 more
points you get a small boost in stats as well as an
extra click of running shot. you lose absolutely no
movement powers whatsoever *cough* *cough*. You also
get 8 range. The vet, for 12 more points than the
experianced brings 10 attack to the table, now it
isnt nimrods 12, and that is his saving grace. SHe
gets a more respectable defense, and more movement
on her second click. which is best? nimrod! no
really, id have to say the rookie, they all fill
pretty much the same role on your team, secondary
attacker, and the rookie does it the most cost
effectively, especially because all three are
useless after novablasting. i might be inclined to
go after the E just for the extra range.
all ratings assume nova blast
100: 3.142/5 ok shes the bulk of your team, but
shell also kill the bulk of your opponents team.
just hope you dont miss.
200: 3.432/5 the ability to seriously damage half of
your opponents team for less than 100 points? check
300: 3.653/5 see above
500: 4.001/5 feel free to read my old reviews and
see how rarely figures get ratings in the 4 range.
its very rare. this is a great figure, a must play.
The LE is an entirely different animal. MInd
control, psy blast, mastermind, and probability
control for over half the dial with better than
decent stats. the movement is pretty low, but thats
what TK is for. also a great figure.
3.446/5 for anything over 299 points 2.87 for
