Today we'll be reviewing Swordsman from
I really wanted to review Swordsman, because he is
the most ridiculous looking figure since Stiltman,
which we reviewed last time. I can not even imagine
that Swordsman is a real character; he’s like a
French Breakfast Cereal Character, minus the cool.
Rookie: 20 points, No Team
Experienced: 35 points, Avengers Team
Veteran: 49 points, Avengers Team
Who is the Best:
Clearly the Veteran with the Charge and Blades Claws
is the best, since the others might as well be
POGS. Winner: Veteran
Charge is good, but he can only move 4. Flurry is
great and works well with Close Combat Expert.
Force Blast is still pointless.
9 attack is standard and horrible for the set.
Blades Claws makes him roughly playable.
Incapacitate will never be used since Close Combat
Expert would make him able to hit anybody. Having
Psychic Blast at the end of the dial is just
17 with Energy Shield is amazing, but he’s a close
combat character so it is not nearly as good. I
really wish he had Combat Reflexes in the clicks
that has Energy Shield. Willpower is always nice to
help him run away.
His damage actually stays pretty high for the
points. As long as he is next to somebody he is
going to be useful.
I truly believe that the sculptor went out of his
way to make him look even dumber then he should
Blades Claws with Charge is always a good Combo
Nanobots works really well on him
His dial is pretty short
Alright here is the deal, why use him and not LE
Cheetah or a number of different Wolverines or
Tigera? Swordsman is very plain pointless. He’s
not terrible, he’s just doing the same thing a lot
of people can do, but not doing it as well. In this
case you can judge a book buy it’s cover. Nuff
HE RECEIVES 3 OUT OF A POSSIBLE 5
THUMBS UP! (Blades Claws and Charge Combo to open
always warrants a 3)
The Sets getting much better, but still STILTMAN
BETTER BE A GOD!
Good, Bad, I’m the Guy with the Clix
