Much like yesterday, today we have another
Unique: Arkon. And once again, I have very little info about
the clix, so once again I’ll just skip comments:
This guy is not a flyer, he has no archenemy, he’s a pretty
cool sculpt :p, costs 80 points, has 8 clicks of health, 8
range 1 target, no TA and:
Speed: 9, 8, 8, 8, 8, 7, 7, 7. 1st click has Phasing 2nd
click has Running Shot, 3rd and 4th clicks have Charge, 5th
and 6th have Force Blast, and the last 2 clicks have
Attack: 9, 10, 9, 9, 9, 8, 8, 7. From the 4th click on,
Energy Explosion all the way.
Defense: 18, 17, 17, 16, 15, 15, 16, 17.First 3 clicks are
Toughness, following 2 are Combat Reflexes, and that’s it.
Damage: 4, 3, 2, 2, 3, 3, 2, 2. First 2 clicks have
Leadership, next 2 have RCE and that’s it.
Analysis: Nice range for and overall values for the cost.
The Phasing at the end would be really good to run back to
the medic… but he has a 17 defense… :S. Running Shot
followed by some Charge is very nice to have, but not from
your 2nd click on… specially ‘cuz he has his best damage and
defense on his first click… He’ll be always hard to hit from
close and he’ll have a good chance of hitting most of the
time. His damage is decent for his cost… it kind of sucks
that he has RCE considering that he has Charge and Combat
Reflexes, but I guess you can look at it like this: you have
options, and that’s never a bad thing.
Conclusion: I find this guy an average Joe, he doesn’t stand
out for anything in particular, but he can’t be
underestimated. Try him out if you want in 300 points teams
or higher, he might work for you.
200 – 2/5
300 – 2.75/5
400+ – 3.25/5
“YES FORCEBLAST! NOW I CAN WIN!”
This is Dario, mails to
I really wish I knew who
these guys were….well not really…but it would be nice.
He is a Unique, 80 points, 8
clicks of life, 8 range 1 target , no team
Speed: 9,8,8,8,8,7,7,7 Phasing, Running Shot, Charge
for 2, Force Blast for 2, Ends 2 Phasing
Attack: 9,10,9,9,9,8,8,7 Energy Explosion clicks 4
Defense: 18,17,17,16,15,15,16,17 Toughness first 3,
Combat Reflexes next two, then nothing
Damage: 4,3,2,2,3,3,2,2 Leadership first two, RCE
next two, then nothing
The Good: Is it me, or is there a lot of 18 Def in
colors for 80 points
stays good throughout
clicks for the points is not bad at all
the 8 range
Phasing is good to run away
Defense is hard to heal but hard to hit at that point as
The Bad: WHY, WHY PHASING THEN MOVE AND SHOOT!!!
Explosion with one target is lame
with the second click being better than the first?
The standards ICWO and Protected if you want…..nothing more
Overall: What more can you say for an 18 defense at
80 points. He has the high opening damage that V Clayface
has, just without the move and shoot to use it. He has good
attack values, but some junky combinations. The Charge
clicks are useless because of the two damage, you will NEVER
use charge with 4 movement over a 4 damage with an 8 range.
If he started with 9(RS),10,18(Tough),4….he would be at
least a 4 out of 5 character. But, because of the
combinations, he will stay a little less. He is in no way a
bad heroclix, but he is not amazing either. He is a good
cheap standing brick, that’s about it.
Constructed/Unrestricted: 3.5 / 5
Sealed/Draft: 3 / 5
Overall:3 / 5

Today we'll be reviewing Arkon from Sinister
owe a lot to Pojo to for my big win. In the upcoming weeks
I’ll be writing a lot of different articles on how I won the
World Championship of Heroclix at Philly. Thanks for
reading and all of your support. I will be splitting these
articles between, Pojo, Critical Hit and HC Realms so if you
want to get the full story you’ll have to check every where.
Arkon is definitely one of the most embarrassingly looking
characters to play with, up there with Moondragon, Moonstar
Unique: 80 points, No Team
Grrrr!!!! Running Shot on the Second Click! Phasing at
the end is really good. Charge in the middle, sure why not?
9 attack, I second the Grrr… 10 attack on his second click,
just is frustrating.
18 defense with Toughness is great for 80 points. 17 on his
second click means that he is not really worth pushing.
He’s always hard to hit and with the new neutered healing
rules make that is a really good thing.
4 might as well be 12 for this set, because nobody hits for
very much. Still 4 damage is only good if you hit,
otherwise it really could be 12. Ranged Combat Expert keeps
Pretty funny if you ask me.
Leadership is alright, but almost never a reason to play a
Nice Damage and Great Defense
Does his poor attack hurt his nice defense and damage too
So many mixed up his between his first an second clicks
Lot’s of raw power
range is pretty good
He is a lot like Havok, 18 defense from ranged attack, hits
for 4 damage, no move and attack, but Havok has a better
Arkon is really hard to rate, his damage, range and defense
are all really good for the points, but he’s not always
going to hit. He would be better alone if he’s pushed, but
then his impressive 18 and 4 stats go away. If you play
Arkon use Nanobots, Protected, Incontact to help his defense
and Lockjaw carrying him around. Overall, I think he is a
little to jumbled to be amazing, but he’s definitely too
powerful to be ignored.
HE RECEIVES 3.5 OUT OF A POSSIBLE 5 THUMBS UP!
Good, Bad, I’m the Guy with the Clix
