Rurouni KJS Unique Doom (2099)
wing speed
150 points
Team: Minions of Doom
Range: 6 x 2

Dial:
http://www.wizkidsgames.com/heroclix/marvel/figures_dials.asp?dialid=10807&unitid=12369&universeid=4

Powers and analysis:
Doom starts Stealthy with 2-target Energy Explosion, a combo that old-school Dr. Doom fans know can be lethal. Lots of opening Outwit and Invulnerability doesn't hurt, either. But his 6 range isn't so hot for a main attacker like himself, and he becomes an soft, inviting target by mid-dial with a middling Defense, Super Senses notwithstanding. Good news is that his attack never spirals down, only dipping to 9 before spiking back up. And ending with Phasing plus Regeneration could be a lifesaver -- as might an 11 AV with RCE.

Feats:
AUTOMATIC REGENERATION is highly recommended. ARMOR PIERCING is always good with Energy Explosion, and when used in conjunction with EXTENDED RANGE, Doom can surprise a clump of foes.

Themes/Comic accuracy:
Our Victor Von Doom in the future. I hear he was more of an anti-hero, but I never read his title. Doesn't seem as powerful as he ought to be with future tech.

In sum:
It seems a veritable proverb, nay, a commandment: "All Dooms shall suffer in comparison to the original Clobberin' Time Vet." And so this Doom does. But field the right Wildcard fodder (say, Ultimates to Outwit that sneaky Batman) you can get some mileage out of future Doom here.

Rating: 3/5.
 
Dario Hi everyone! After a couple of weeks off, I come back to serve you all with my oh so insightful reviews! Enjoy! So, now it’s time for Doctor Doom 2099.
He’s 150 points, has flight, no archenemy, has Minions of Doom TA of course,
6 range 2 targets, 8 clicks of health and:

Stats:

Speed: 8, 8, 10, 8, 7, 7, 7, 6. 1st and 2nd clicks have Stealth, 3rd and 4th clicks have Running Shot, 5th click has nothing and last 3 have Phasing/Teleport

Attack: 10, 10, 11, 10, 9, 9, 10, 11. First 2 clicks have Energy Explosion, then he has Psychic Blast from the 4th till the 7th click.

Defense: 16, 16, 16, 16, 15, 15, 14, 13. First 3 clicks have Invulnerability, then follow 2 of Super Senses, then 1 of Toughness and the last 2 have Regeneration.

Damage: 3, 3, 3, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3. First 4 clicks have Outwit, 5th and 6th have Probability Control, 7th click is empty, and the last click has RCE.

Analysis:

His Speed is… I’m not entirely sure. 6 range 2 targets is far from great… but it ain’t suck, right? Besides that, Phasing/Teleport at the end is good.
And beginning with 2 clicks of Stealth instead of just 4 first clicks of Running Shot isn’t too bad, but means you need a TKer. Also, having a wildcard TA means that having Stealth on his dial isn’t too great

His Attack is certainly nice: just a couple of 9’s, then 10’s and 11’s for 150 is to like. The powers, not so much: EE can be used with 2 targets, but it ain’t too great on figures over 100 points or so… and Psychic Blast is always sweet, but he doesn’t have those clicks on his best damage clicks… and his damage is low

His Defense is certainly a weak point. On the contrary (regarding the attack), the powers are nicely placed, but his defense is too low for 150 points.

His Damage has pretty much every power you could want for this guy: Outwit is great, as is Probability Control and even that last click of RCE is sweet, as it allows you to blow up an enemy instead of running away to a doc or using Regeneration. Options are always nice. But… only his date-dial damage is nice… the rest is sort of low for his point cost, even factoring in the powers he has :S

Conclusion: He doesn’t suck, but I think he won’t be doing enough for your effort, even with some Feats. Hmm… I could be wrong, (although I don’t think so :P) so try him out.

Rating: 2.95/5.

Speed:  Stealth, running shot, then phasing to run away…I would have like the front-loaded running shot better

Attack:  Pretty consistent values that never goes below a 9…not bad,  wish the psy blast was up front with RS

Defense:  Low numbers but easy to heal at end.  All of the abilities help him last longer

Damage:  Low, but all of that outwit helps him a lot.  His last click he can destroy just about any click…if he doesn’t die first

The Good:  Wildcard

      Good attack values

      Lots of front-loaded outwit

      2 targets

The Bad:   Damage is kind of low

     Not a fan of some of the combinations

     He would be great if he was maybe 20 points less

     Low Range


Feats:   ICWO is a must for his damage, automatic regeneration works too, besides that don’t bother, shellhead can help him early on


Overall:    This is what I like to call a click that is close to being good, but misses the mark.  To be worth his points, he would have needed the running shot, high attack, psy blast, and outwit frontloaded.  He would have been a beast then.  He reminds me a bit of KC Batman, only with better defense and doesn’t really crap out.  IF he was 20 points less, he would be a LOT more playable.  I wish the running shot was first, because if you teamed him to batman, he would be a real threat.  He seems like he would be fun to play, but not so great for the common tournament.

Constructed/Unrestricted: 2 / 5

Sealed/Draft:  N/A / 5

 

Overall:  2 / 5
