Ravage was one of those 1990s characters that did zip for me. Bad name, lame me-too powers, lousy 2099 universe, poor design. But he might be one of the most playable 2099 pieces. Leap/Climb gets him in a foe's face while Super Strength & Blades/Claws/Fangs allow him to deal big damage once there -- and a starting 18 defense means he probably won't take damage. Even then he's liable to end up on a great fighting click, as his AV spikes to 10 mid-dial with Close Combat Expert.
He can push at will and only get better with Charge in the latter half to chase someone ELSE. Scary, scary 8 clicks.

Feats:
POUNCE is OK, though you'd sacrifice that great opening defense. He qualifies for DAMAGE SHIELD on 6 of his 8 clicks; great for a close-combat fighter.
AUTOMATIC REGENERATION could keep him around to wreak even more havoc.

Comic accuracy/theme?
Who knows? He's a 2099 character. Seems to match the Wiki entry. Try him out on an all-feral team.

In sum: How the heck is this guy just 60 points?
Without a single bad click, he's like Kraven the Spider's big brother.

Rating: 4/5. One of the best figs in his point range.
 
Dario Hi there, ya’ all! If I’m not mistaken, this is the last of the 2099 Collector’s Set clix! Ravage, it is. Who he is? Well, that’s what wikipedia is for, right? :P 60 points, so he’s cheap, that’s for sure. He has no archenemy, no flight, no range, no TA, no clicks of health… oh, wait a minute! he has 8 clicks of health :P, and these stats:

Stats:

Speed: 8, 8, 7, 7, 8, 6, 6, 6. First 2 clicks have Leap/Climb, next 2 clicks have Flurry, then follows 3 clicks of Charge and the last one is empty.

Attack: 9, 8, 10, 10, 9, 9, 8, 7. 1st click has Super Strength, 2nd click has B/F/C and that’s all.

Defense: 18, 17, 16, 16, 15, 15, 15, 14. 1st click has Toughness, 2nd and 3rd clicks have Combat Reflexes, 4th and 5th have Super Senses, 6th click has Toughness and the last 2 Regeneration.

Damage: 2, 2, 3, 2, 2, 3, 2, 1. He has CCE on his 1st, 4th, 5th and last clicks.

Analysis:

His Speed has low values, but that’s to be expected considering the character (he seems like your regular big, slow brick) and the points. I like him starting with L/C, ‘cuz… he can Pounce! yay!. Then he falls into Flurry, not half bad of a follow up to Pounce. Then some Charge… yeah, why not?

His Attack is nice. I wish it was better arranged, but I don’t think we can complain… good.

His Defense is very nice! At the end he can be healed either with his Regeneration or some doc’s Support. And from the beginning to his mid-dial, he’s fairly hard to hit, with some cool values and defensive powers.

His Damage is nice if you can get him next to somebody… good, since that shouldn’t be too hard :)


Conclusion: Not a lot to say: He can very well be your clean up piece, of
your third string attacker. Put Pounce on him, since he can take advantage
of that. Put ICWO too, since it goes with almost every click and can help
him have a better attack if he need to, or deliver even more damage… or be
harder to hit. He already has good chances of hitting the average clix and
delivering some pain, as well as keeping himself untouched. So… if you have
a TKer in you team, give this dude a chance, you may like him

Rating: 3.5/5.

Speed:  Not great, powers are backwards

Attack:  Decent values, first click is good pounce potential

Defense:  wow, 18’s for cheap are real nice, he stays pretty annoying the whole time

Damage:  Pretty good, stays pretty high the whole time for a piece like this

The Good:  High Defense

      Decent attack values

The Bad:   Speed values are king of backwards

    Little hard to plan out how to use him


Feats:   ICWO, Pounce, Nanobots, and Automatic Regeneration are the best for him, Pummel can work too


Overall:    Whenever you see a piece with a high defense like 18 for 60 points you automatically get some good points in my book.  You have two options when using a piece like this.  You can either carry him up to an ememy with a lockjaw and go for the CCE, or use pounse to get that 5 damage with a heavy object then get the 19 def from close.  He is an all around decent secondary attacker.  I know I am not going to touch this waste of a collector’s set, but he might be worth snagging on E-bay.  Him and Hulk are probably the best things to come out of this set.

Constructed/Unrestricted:  3 / 5

Sealed/Draft:  N/A / 5

 

Overall:  3 / 5

Romanco here. Hope you like my first review.
 
Today's Click of the Day is Ravage 2099.
 
Not much to say about Ravage except he died a while ago and is in space as we speak. Poor guy.
 
He is 60 points; Grounded; No Team Affiliation; 0 Range; 1 Bolt
 8          8          7          7          8          6          6          6          KO      KO      KO      KO
 9          8          10        10        9          9          8          7          KO      KO      KO      KO
 18        17        16        16        15        15        15        14        KO      KO      KO      KO
 2          2          3          2          2          3          2          1          KO      KO      KO      KO
 
For reference:  Light Green  = Combat Reflexes
 
Speed: I would have liked it the other way around. By the time he gets Charge it'll be pointless since he'd probably be
            next to the opponent by then. Flurry is at perfect time.
 
Attack: A dull 9 won't get you anywhere anymore except for a few lucky rolls. Lots of consistency after those first two
             clicks. But by then, the Super Strength and Blades are gone.
 
Defense: It's great but greatness comes at a cost. Will those good clicks ever come with an 18 and Toughness followed
                up with 17 on Combat Reflexes? This could be to your advantage too though. Defense goes sloppy halfway
                down and stays like it until he dies. Regeneration is great at the end.
 
Damage: Close Combat Expert is perfect for a close combatter, of course. And it's sprawled out over the dial! You're
                opponent will never see it coming when you land on Flurry. There are some twos but Blades makes up for it
                and you'll be rengerating on the other place he has it.
 
Figure Sculpt: I'll say he looks ready to ravage.
 
The Breakdown: Ravage seems cheap and cool for a smooth 60 points, but there's better. The no range or ability to soar means you have to give him a good transporter. And if you add those points then Ravage doesn't seem that inexpensive anymore. I still like him though and he's worth giving a shot. Remember with one good Regeneration and he's back on his best click.
 
 
Ravage 2099 gets a  3/5
