Dario So, this is the LE of Kang, Nathaniel Richards… huh… er… okay, let’s get down to business: Cost: 167 points. Treats: Flight, no archenemy, 8 clicks of health, Minions of Doom TA (aka Wildcard), 8 range 1 target and:

Stats:

Speed: 10, 8, 8, 8, 7, 7, 6, 6. 1st click has Phasing/Teleport, 2nd and 3rd have Running Shot.

Attack: 12, 11, 10, 10, 9, 9, 9, 9. First 3 clicks have Energy Explosion, following 2 have Incapacitate, then he gets EE for 2 more clicks and then ends with 1 of Psychic Blast.

Defense: 18, 16, 16, 16, 15, 15, 16, 17. 1st click has Mastermind, then 2 of Invulnerability, then 3 of Energy Shield/Deflection and finishes with 2 of Willpower.

Damage: 3, 3, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3. 1st click has RCE, 2nd has Perplex, 3rd has RCE, 4th and 5th have Perplex, the 6th and 7th have nothing and the last one has Perplex.

Analysis:

His Speed sucks, Phasing should be at the end. The need to push to get some mobility (which is certainly far from awesome) is a big hit to this guy’s playability.

His Attack is barely above what one should expect for his cost. His abilities here suck even more: Incapacitate and Energy Explosion aren’t great on high weight clicks, let alone single targeting ones. 1 single click of Psychic Blast (and in his final click!) means nothing.

His Defense keeps him hard to hit (or sort of) during pretty much most of his dial. I’m not sure I like those powers, the way they’re placed. He can’t be healed.

His Damage is slightly lackluster for my taste. A couple of 3’s to begin and end with, and mid-dial 2’s is not good for 167 points. Not even RCE and Perplex (which are nice powers) will make me say that his damage is ok.


Conclusion: With a so-so Defense, and a mediocre (at best!) Damage and Speed… and an ok attack with useless abilities, I can safely give this clix a… drums please…

Rating: 1/5. It blows :)

Speed:  I wish he started with running shot and ended with phasing, If you are using Protected and not using Fortitude, then the running shot after could work.

Attack:  Great values, but the EE and Incap are wasted with 1 target (I say that a lot don’t I).  I wish the psychic blast was with the Running Shot.

Defense:  O Yea, 18 with mastermind.  Everything else is pretty standard. 

Damage:  Steady 3’s with some RCE and Perplex throughout, reminds me of a Green Lantern

The Good:  High attack values

      18 def and mastermind

      Able to do some good damage

      Wildcard

The Bad:   Incap and EE with 1 target

    No frontloaded RS

    Short dial for the points


Feats:   Fortitude is almost a must, same with protected.  ICWO can help the damage out. 


Overall:    Hmm…he is a tough piece to call.  He has the good attack values going for him, and the Mastermind could keep him around almost forever.  You are going to need Lockjaws and Pogs for mastermind fodder though.  You need to play him the same way you would CT Doom.  Also, his wildcard status also gives him great potential.  Actually, there is a lot about this piece that I like, but there is just something about him that keeps me from wanting to really feel safe with him.  If he is ever hit off that first click, he will go down and fast.

Constructed/Unrestricted:  3.5 / 5

Sealed/Draft:  N/A / 5

 

Overall:  3.5 / 5
