Today we'll be reviewing Beetle from
The Beetle has had such an epically mediocre career
that we must simple make 6 epically mediocre
Heroclix of him.
Rookie: 35 points, Sinister Syndicate Team
Experienced: 64 points, Masters of Evil Team
Veteran: 78 points, Sinister Syndicate Team
Who is the Best:
is a comparative term. For 35 points you can get
flyer that has 5 clicks. For 64 points we have a
flyer that has Probability Control after he can’t
hit anybody. For 78 points we’ll have flyer that
must share attack with somebody and will get
probability control and Psychic Blast well after his
stats have dropped to Con Artist Style lows.
None of them are playable for anything more then
decent team abilities, but I’ll go with the
Veteran, because he’s sadly the most powerful.
He has Running Shot at the beginning with a fun 9
movement, thus he moves and shoots for 5. He only
has a 6 range so he can shoot 11 squares away.
9 with Super Strength really does not work well with
Running Shot. Psychic Blast works GREAT with
Running Shot, but he has that power at the end.
17 with Toughness for nearly 80 points. Wow, where
do I sign up!?! L
Nearly 80 points and only 1 click of 3 damage. Then
he slumps to a POG like 2 damage. He has
Probability Control which is his best feature, but
he has it in the middle of his dial. This way he
can not defend himself with the Prob control,
because his defense is too low NOT to hit. On
attack he’ll need the Probability to be able to
actually hit anybody.
Just as lame as Beetle ever looked, but now in a
cool action pose. Seriously though, the Sculpts are
Nice standard 17 defense
9 attack is still low for 80 points
He does has some plus sides…. He flies and he can
break a wall, but only on his first click.
Running Shot to start
Bad ability combos
Really bad ability placement
He really does not have anything good about him. He
can move and attack, but he does not hit for
enough. He has Super Strength, but does not Charge
somebody with an object. He has poorly placed
expensive powers that drive up his cost AND just for
the final kick in the jaw he has a short dial for
HE RECEIVES 0.5 OUT OF A POSSIBLE 5
So far the worst set ever. STILTMAN BETTER BE A
Good, Bad, I’m the Guy with the Clix
