Rurouni KJS Huh! Psylocke once filled in as Captain Britain in her pre-X-Men days? Who knew?

Captain Britain (Psylocke LE)
wing speed
69 points
Team: none
Range: 6 x 1

--------------------------------
08 08 08 08 07 07
09 08 07 07 07 08
16 16 15 14 14 13
03 03 02 02 02 02

Powers and analysis:
1st click bears Charge, Super Strength and Invulnerability.
2nd click loses Charge and swaps in Toughness.
3rd & 4th clicks gain Incapacitate
5th click loses Toughness but gains Psychic Blast.
Final click gains Earthbound.

Miss Captain Britain starts as a mediocre brick and gets worse from there. Sure, she can do some nice damage on her first click, but if she takes any damage she's a nearly guaranteed 70 points lost to the other guy. Mediocre defense. Sub-par attack value. And in the end, she can't even fly. Psychic Blast at the end with a better-than-usual last-click AV is the only semi-bright spot on her dial after she's hurt.

Feats:
None. Not one. Not even the standbys like NANOBOTS, IN CONTACT W/ORACLE or PROTECTED. Don't do anything to give the oppo anymore points.

Themes:
Nothing really fits, since she was Capt. Britain at a time when her brother was not.

Comic accurate?
I guess so. Since she was an awful failure as Captain Britain, it's fitting this dial is so weak.

In sum:
At 49 points, she'd be fine if unremarkable. But at nearly 70, with no real strengths beyond her first click, this is one figure that even I can't say anything more good about.

Rating: 1/5. And she doesn't even truly fit any theme teams, either!

REVIEWED BY CRAMCOMPANY

 

Today we'll be reviewing Captain Britian LE from Armor Wars

 

This is Flashback to Armor Wars Week.  In part, because with all the retired characters and new rules different characters are better.  But in a bigger way they have not released a new figure’s stats in over a month and a half.  I’m quitting when we start re-review Hypertime.

 

Captain Britain is one of the better ideas for an LE.  Making a character just completely different is always a neat idea for a prize.

 

LE: 69 points (Te He Te He… 69), No Team

 

 

MOVEMENT:  Charge to Start, but it is only a 8 Charge which is not great.

 

ATTACK:  9 attack with Super Strength make her a little more dangerous.  Incapacitate and her low attack is just a bad joke.  Psychic Blast at the end is okay, but the Earthbound on the last click may stop you from using it.

 

DEFENSE:  16 invulnerability is decent, but really easy to hit.  Toughness will make her short click, less short.

 

DAMAGE:  3 damage is just not that great for a brick style character.

 

SCULPT:  That is definitely a girl in a big purple cloak.

 

Feats:  Don’t bother, but if you must Nanobots, Rip it Up, Protected and Incontact.

 

OVERALL: 

*       She flies and has a range

*       She is a brick that will have a hard time hitting

*       She is a brick that is easy to hit

*       She is a brick with a short dial

*       She really doesn’t even qualify as a brick

There is truly no big upside too Captain Britain.  A brick needs a high attack and high damage.  If the brick can not do that why use her…him…Captain Britain?

 

HE RECEIVES 1 OUT OF A POSSIBLE 5 THUMBS UP!

 

Good, Bad, I’m the Guy with the Clix

Today's review is Captain Britain from Sinister

 

Well, it’s Armor Wars LE week here at POJO!

 

Today, we take a look at the LE of Psylocke. 

 

She is an LE, 69 points, 6 range 1 target, 6 clicks of life, is a flier, and no team

Speed: 8,8,8,8,7,7   Charge for 1, then Earthbound the last

Attack: 9,8,7,7,7,8   Super Strength for 2, Incap for 2, Psy Blast for 2

Defense:  16,16,15,14,14,13  Invuln for 1, then toughness for 3

Damage:  3,3,2,2,2,2   no powers

The Good:  Charge and Super Strength works good

      Potential for high damage…for a click

      Some damage reduction

The Bad:   1 target Incap is wasted points

     6 range is nothing special

     Low attack

     Isn’t really a threat


Feats:   If you plan to use her…ICWO and Protected.  Then again, why would you ever play her outside of friendly play?

Overall:  This is a short one.  She is a mediocre piece that does what a lot of other pieces do.  Only thing is a lot of those pieces do it better.  I have never seen her used and I think I know why. 

Constructed/Unrestricted: 2 / 5

Sealed/Draft: NA / 5

 

Overall:  2 / 5
