REVIEWED BY CRAMCOMPANY
Today we'll be reviewing Chemo from DC
A giant monster made of radiation. He is similar to
all of those characters that the major heroes used
to fight in the fifties during the nuclear bomb
scare. I have never seen him talk in a comic, but
he must be able to make decisions, because he joined
the Suicide Squad. Or maybe he just stands in a
room until people assume he’s part of the team.
Experienced (but there is no Rookie or Vet): 144
points, Suicide Squad Team, Giant Figure
Force blast….. this will never come in handy. It is
already hard enough for the no range characters to
attack him, thus your opponents ranged characters
will come after Chemo. Force Blast with three
damage is pointless against a ranged character.
Plasticity could really come in handy though, since
Giant characters are adjacent to two rows of
squares. Nobody will attempt to charge him.
10 Attack is decent, but I would have like to see it
for another 2 clicks. Poison is not that good.
Currently poison will only effect the characters
directly next to Chemo, NOT CHARACTERS 2 squares
away! This is very important to understand. So
giant figures are already very hard to base and now
you have an ability that can only be used when they
are directly based. Very poor decision.
Incapacitate is practically standard and the ending
Pulsewave could at lease have a decent attack
attached to it.
Very Nice. High defense with a lot of damage
reducing power. Regeneration at the end will make
him very hard to kill.
I hate when clicks do more damage on the second
click then on the first. Ranged combat and close
combat are okay. You can not make a ranged combat
attack when another character bases you, even though
you are a Giant, it does not work like it would if
they were a flyer. Close combat expert works great.
Chemo vs. Godzilla would be neat. I would root for
Suicide Squad is by far the most underrated team
ability in the game.
He is very hard to kill
Because he is a Giant, he can not move easily into
battle (No TK or being Carried.)
Everyone can shoot at him, because they can draw
lines for fire over any characters
Chemo can see anywhere.
Being a Giant is a disadvantage, like having Battle
Very Low Damage.
Suicide Squad says that any friendly figure dies
next to your character, that character rolls a
standard regeneration roll. However that
regeneration roll will have to heal them AT LEAST 1
click. Meaning if you add 5 single point Lian
Harper Pogs and are willing to push them to death,
Chemo becomes very hard to kill. So that is a major
plus, however Wizkids is still valuing Giants as if
it is good to be a Giant figure. Being a Giant
figure limits your mobility and lets everyone be
able to take shots on you. Do not kid yourself that
two square adjacency trick does not make up for it’s
massive draw backs. He is not a powerhouse, but he
is a good start. However, the poison trick does not
work (unless they emend it) and his damage is WAY to
Another Giant in a long line of unplayable Giants.
