Today we'll be reviewing Crystal a Armor
Crystal was a member of the Inhumans, Fantastic Four
and Awesomely Bad 80’s Hair Club.
Unique: 62 points, Fantastic Four Team
No abilities…sweet L She does have a very high
movement and is a flyer…so that is something.
Fairly steady attack and is front loaded with Pulse
Wave. Quake will probably not be used since she is
a ranged attacker. I’m not going to mention how
pointless Smoke Cloud is on a non-Stealth character.
17 used to be a lot better defense, but now it is
just average. Barrier would have been nicer up
front, but it does make her useful later on.
Respectably high defense will make her very hard to
3 with Pulse Wave is nice, but after that first
click she is a barrier character and nothing more.
She looks like she should be dancing in a White
Nova Blast and Incontact. I would not even waste
the points on a Protected, since she’ll die if she
gets a good Nova Blast off…probably.
I’ve played her and did pretty well, when she has
the 19 defense from Sue Storm to share she can be
pretty good and get off quite a few Pulse Waves
No move and attack limits her ease of play.
Nova Blast for 3 is pretty devastating
Missing a Nova Blast and still taking 2 click and
losing 10 points, because her attack is only a 9can
be pretty devastating.
She was better before Collateral Damage came out.
Crystal is an example of lacking options to begin
with, either you use Nova Blast with her or she’s an
expensive 3 damage attacker. If she had Barrier to
begin with she would have been better. But if
you’re building a Fantastic Four Team, she’s one of
the best of the Bunch. I personally think all
versions of The Thing and Mr. Fantastic are pretty
terrible. Crystal is a good way to round out some
theme teams, but for competitive play she is average
