Today we'll be reviewing Mach-1 from
The Beetle/Mach-1 has had such an epically mediocre
career that we must simple make 6 epically mediocre
Heroclix of him.
Rookie: 58 points, Avengers Team
Experienced: 77 points, Avengers Team
Veteran: 100 points, Avengers Team
Who is the Best:
Again “Best” is an abstract term. The Rookie is
similar to the Veteran Beetle, but cheaper with a
much better team ability. The Experienced does just
not have the mediocre power of the Veteran.
Running Shot at the beginning and Charge at the
end. His 8 range is a lot better then 6 range.
Finnally a 10 attack! Sure it’s only for one click,
but then he has 9 attack for a bit. The Charge
matches up with the Super Strength and the Energy
Explosion and Incap matches well with the Running
17 with Toughness...still not happy about it. The
Energy/Shield Deflection will keeps his defense up
at the end, but Charge and Energy/Shield is a bad
STILL only 3 damage. 100 points and three damage is
just terrible. He gains the Ranged Combat Expert in
the middle of the dial and that does keep up his
He really is flying for those stars.
Avengers/Thunderbolts is always great
Decent almost becoming standard defense
Does not have a single GREAT power
Lot’s of useful move and attack
Energy Explosion with only one target is nearly
His middle damage stats are pretty nice
As far as Sinister goes, Mach-1 is fantastic. As
far as Heroclix goes Mach-1 is mediocre. He is not
that dangerous to play against. Even if you feat
card the heck out of him, there is just no reason to
play him instead of say…rookie Shocker or
Experienced Blackfire. He’s clearly the best of out
of the 6 Beetles, but just like the comic books if
you ignore him you’ll never even know Beetle was
HE RECEIVES 2.5 OUT OF A POSSIBLE 5
The Sets getting much better, but still STILTMAN
BETTER BE A GOD!
Good, Bad, I’m the Guy with the Clix
