REVIEWED BY CRAMCOMPANY

 

Today we'll be reviewing Beetle from Sinister

 

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   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.

 

MOVEMENT:  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. 

 

ATTACK:  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.

 

DEFENSE:  17 with Toughness for nearly 80 points.  Wow, where do I sign up!?! L

 

DAMAGE:  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.

 

SCULPT:  Just as lame as Beetle ever looked, but now in a cool action pose.  Seriously though, the Sculpts are great!

 

OVERALL: 

*       Horrible damage

*       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 the points.

 

HE RECEIVES 0.5 OUT OF A POSSIBLE 5 THUMBS UP! 

 

So far the worst set ever.  STILTMAN BETTER BE A GOD!

Good, Bad, I’m the Guy with the Clix

Alrighty, today is Beetle from Sinister. Honestly all I know about this guy
is on the wizkids page. He was a villain during a lot of time, fighting
Spidey, Fantastic Four and others until he became good, changing his battle
name and even became leader of the Thunderbolts. But today we focus on the
R/E/V of his villainous life, more exactly the V. It costs 78 points, has 6
clicks of health, 6 range 1 target, and:

Stats:

Speed: 9, 9, 8, 8, 7, 7. First 2 clicks are Running Shot

Attack: 9, 9, 8, 7, 7, 6. First 4 clicks are Super Strength, last 2 are
Psychic Blast.

Defense: 17, 16, 15, 15, 14, 14. First for clicks of Toughness, and that’s
it.

Damage: 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, 1. Probability Control from the 3rd till the 5th
click.

Analysis: Not much to say, really: his Speed is pretty average… RS for 2
clicks allowing him to move for 5 squares before shooting to maximum of 6
squares away… it’s ok at best. His Attack isn’t something either: ok values

for the cost, SS means pretty much nothing without Charge or HSS, Psychic
Blast is way cool but his low damage on those clicks aren’t. Defense is ok,
not bad but nothing especial. Damage is pretty low he has no way of
increasing it (don’t count on Super Strength if you don’t have the right
Speed powers) and by the time he gets PB he can’t hurt a lot. Probability
Control would be cool if it was front loaded.

Conclusion: He sucks :P

Ranking:

100 – 1/5 No
200 – 1/5 Nein
300 – 1.5/5 Niet
400+ – 1.75/5 …

“YES FORCEBLAST! NOW I CAN WIN!”
