Rurouni KJS LE Nova (Mutant Mayhem)

wing speed

222 points

Team: Power Cosmic

Range: 10 x 2

Continuing our fan requests, we review the chrome-plated LE Nova from Mutant Mayhem. Starting with Running Shot, 5 damage, 17 Impervious and the mighty Power Cosmic, she looks to be everything you want in an attacker. But at well over 200 points, you kinda want her AV to be higher than 10 and not sink to

7 by her last two clicks. And really...what the heck is up with that single second-to-last click of no damage reducers on a 10-slot dial otherwise full of them? Makes no sense.

Feats: SHELLHEAD is good for any Power Cosmic or Quintessence character with damage reducers down the dial like Nova here. And this is one time I think using the hated, overpowered IN CONTACT WITH ORACLE is almost mandatory, since she needs to land every attack she can against swarms or the more effective beasticks in her point class. If you're going to use this points sink, go all the way.

Themes/Comic accuracy:

She's a former herald of Galactus and sometime ally of the Fantastic Four. Her dial should have been a bit shorter but more powerful. Where's the Pulse Wave?

In sum: Overcosted for such a mediocre attack value and lack of powers. Without the Power Cosmic, she'd be junk at 50 points less. With it...

Rating: ...she's still just 2.5 of 5. I'd rather play Parallax.

Speed:  For 200 points, I’d like more than just 2 of running shot, but its not terrible, good values

Attack:  Kinda crappy values for the points and no values

Defense:  Average values with some damage reducers, except for that one click

Damage:  Once again, alright values, not great

The Good:  Power Cosmic

      Big range

      Great Alpha Strike piece

      Power Cosmic and Damage reducers make those 9 clicks longer

The Bad:   Isn’t really built for the long haul

    Only average values through the dial


Feats:   ICWO is a must, the attack needs to be higher.  Shellhead is also a good call, because with the Power Cosmic she can push and not take damage, hence high defense.  Protected is also good, gets you right onto that shellhead when you get hit (and with a 17, you will get hit)


Overall:    Overall, this is as basic a click as clicks can get.  There are two things that make this piece good though.  She is a great first striker; big movement and huge range make that possible.  Also, with shellhead, she can tear up and be hard to hit.  I would only give her a alright rating, but because she tore me up the last time I faced her (the kid never missed, and kept icwo’ing her attack to 6.  I still won, but barely).  Slap a few feats on her, and you can tear up.

Constructed/Unrestricted:  3.5  / 5

Sealed/Draft:  N/A / 5

 

Overall:  3.5 / 5
