Dario Today we check out Thor! For those of you who don’t know him, this guy is like Superman, for Marvel. This time we get him as an R/E/V of his classical version. If you don’t the remember, the best one till this day was that Unique that represented his Utlimates version. So is he good? Well, I’ll be reviewing the Veteran, which is the best out of the R/E/V (the rookie has a very poor range and speed for his 112 points, as well as a weak defense and lackluster damage; the experienced has no TA, and while is not too bad, there are much better clicks for the 163 points he costs). For 235 points you get a flyer, Avengers TA, 8 range 2 targets, no archenemy, 10 clicks of health (why not eleven?!?!?!) and:

Stats:

Speed: 10, 10, 10, 8, 8, 8, 9, 9, 8, 7. 1st clicks has Running Shot, then come 2 with Charge, then he regains Running shot for 3 clicks and then is nothing till the last click, which has Phasing/Teleport.

Attack: 12, 11, 10, 12, 11, 10, 10, 9, 9, 9. Super Strength from the 1st till the 4th, 5th and 6th clicks have Energy Explosion, 7th, 8th and 9th clicks have Quake, and the last one has Pulse Wave.

Defense: 16, 15, 17, 16, 15, 17, 16, 16, 16, 17. First 2 clicks have Impervious, then follow 3 with Invulnerability, then 2 with Willpower and the last 3 have Toughness.

Damage: 5, 5, 4, 3, 4, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4. 3rd and 4th clicks have CCE, 7th and 8th RCE and that’s it.

Analysis:

His Speed is not half bad; that RS with an 8 range is ok for the points.
Charge on his 2nd and 3rd clicks can be nice is you want to go into close combat, and you might want to, due to his CCE and Super Strength. Getting RS back for a while is pretty good. I have to say, though, that if he gets hit first you’ll be on his Charge clicks, so watch out for that. Last click with Phasing would be nice to run to the medic, IF HE WAS HEALABLE.

His Attack is pretty good, but again he’s 235 points, isn’t he? The powers… Super Strength is nice with Charge, Energy Explosion can be of some use with
2 targets, but I think that it won’t be used a lot really. Quake… the same.
Pulse Wave have its uses.

His Defense is the only part I don’t like that much. It’s not that it’s too bad, either. I’d like him to have 1 extra click of Impervious, and also a higher defense on those impervious clicks… Those damage reducers will help him stay in the fray for long. Willpower is nice, since it will allow you to deliver a lot of hurt, and his defense is high there (it’s mid-dial, at that point your opponent guys attack’s shouldn’t be high enough to hit him easily). He pretty much can’t be healed, but neither can he be hit that easy, besides he remains dangerous through all his dial.

His Damage, like his attack, is good too. Not much to say, he hits hard enough for his points, always around 4.

Conclusion: Not much to add, he’s solid. With Avengers TA, make him 240 and any team you want. Throw in ICWO and Protected also, and make him a 258 monster. This way he can be quite good in 400 points matches, and a monster in 500 points matches. In 300, you can either just slap Thunderbolts on the guy and support him with a couple of weenies, or you can just load him with Feats and then go to town. Not sure how well he could do there.

Rating: 4/5. He’s good.

Speed:  Love it, Running shot, Charge, then more Running Shot…Phasing at and to run away is awesome

Attack:  Love it, Charge and SS work good, RS and EE work too, Quake I never use…Pulse Wave…why not?

Defense:  Little low for the values but plenty of damage reducers…the willpower midway can be both good and bad…you might want to save your protected for those clicks

Damage:  Love it, stays good and is dangerous all the way down the dial

The Good:  Great attack values

      2 targets is always great

      Great movement and damage

      Avengers Team

The Bad:   Not 11 clicks?


Feats:   Thunderbolts, Alpha Flight, ICWO, Protected, Shellhead all work


Overall:    Wow…what a monster.  I like him…a lot….more than Thanos.  If you pull him, use him and enjoy.  Finally, Marvel is starting to have good high-priced pieces.

Constructed/Unrestricted:  4.5 / 5

Sealed/Draft: 4 / 5 (Vet Silver Surfer has his number)

 

Overall:  4.5 / 5
