128 points
Team: X-Men
Range: 8 x 1

Once a Kree-powered human heroine called Ms. Marvel, the depowered Carol Danvers got charged with cosmic energy to become Binary.

DIAL:
http://www.wizkidsgames.com/heroclix/marvel/figures_dials.asp?dialid=10519&unitid=11954&universeid=4

Wow, that's kind of a rainbowy dial. And variety is the name of the former Ms. Marvel's game. Just not necessarily efficiency. She starts with the popular Hypersonic Speed, but her Pulse Wave and Psychic Blast don't work with it. At least she's hard to shoot, thanks to Energy Shield/Deflection, so you're best off ignoring the temptation to use HSS right off and keeping her as a sniper. If she's hit into mid-dial, she charges in as a close combat expert (with those powers, natch) for the rest of her dial, either Poisoning or Stealing Energy. And as a flier, that last click of Ranged Combat Expert might come in handy, despite a poor AV of 7.

FEATS:
ARMOR PIERCING excels for her after her first two clicks to help her get the most out of Energy Explosion, Poison and Steal Energy.

THEMES/ACCURACY:
With Corsair, Hepzibah, Raza and Professor X, you've got nearly a full roster of the Starjammers! Her X-Men TA isn't strictly accurate, though.

IN SUM:
Her fairly steady attack and damage values balance out her early lack of power synergy. A tad expensive for what you get, but she could work pretty well if you play to her strengths. Don't forget to pair her with an X-Men TA battery.

RATING: 3/5.

Speed:  HSS is the best, Running shot to follow, then some charge…nice

Attack:  Can never start with the 10’s anymore, but all those 9’s aren’t bad.  Incap and EE sucks with one target, and Steal Energe can work because of the high damage

Defense:  18 from range, 19 on hindering is always cool, not too bad all around, and easy to heal

Damage:  Lots of 3’s with sporadic RCE and CCE, not bad

The Good:  Great movement

      8 Range and HSS is always cool

      Lots of powers to chose from

      For once, a good change of getting use out of Steal Energy

      X-men team always helps

The Bad:   RCE, Incap, Pulse wave don’t work with HSS

     Wish the attack was higher

     If he gets hit, he gets hit hard


Feats:   ICWO for attack, Protected to keep him around, Nove Blast as a deterrent from being swarmed are probably the best


Overall:    I like this click, reminds me a lot of LE Nova.  The problem is, LE Nova is cheap and does higher damage.  That brings up the question, why play Binary when Super-Nova is so much better.  At first, I never realized about how good having pulse wave as a deterrent can be, but it does work, and very well.  On her own, she is not a bad piece, but 128 points for a 9 attack and 3 damage is not quite worth it in my book.  She is cool, but not great.

Constructed/Unrestricted:  2.5 / 5

Sealed/Draft: 2.5 / 5

 

Overall: 2.5 / 5

Today's Click of the Day is Binary
Unique from Supernova
 
Binary... yeah she looks like a refreshing, new superheroine transformed into the HeroClix universe but she's actually just Warbird with a hairdo shaped like the sun.
 
She is 128 points; Flies; X-Men Team; 8 Range; 1 Bolt
       l        l        l        l        l        l         l        l         l       l         l        
 10    10    8    10    9     9      8      8     KO    KO    KO    KO
19    19     10  19     9     8      8      7     KO    KO    KO    KO
 16    16    16   15    16    15    14    14    KO    KO    KO    KO
  3     3      3   13      2     2     13     2    KO    KO    KO    KO
 
Speed is phenomenal. Binary can shoot someone up to 13 spaces away with Hypersonic Speed. All powers are in the best order and she's always fast enough to flee to the medics.
 
Attack seems poor for 130 points but those 9's live pretty far into the dial. Posion is perfectly positioned and that Steal Energy can always help.
 
Defense looks average. Energy Shield can shoot it up to an 18 but damage reducers don't swing by until 5th click in. One big hit and Binary is stuck in the middle of the board surrounded by long-range attackers with Charge and Poison.
 
Damage could start a little higher. CCE can really add up the total damage with Poison combined.
 
Sculpt -- I already mentioned the wild hair but in my eyes the power suit fits her name.
 
 
Binary has such a colorful dial that strategies may fail. In Contact is a MUST to upgrade her attack. I guess Force Field works but by then she might get pricey. The Charge/Poison/CCE click is golden; even halfway dead, here comes 5 clicks. Recommended to try out. She gets risky at times, but hey, anything is possible in HeroClix.
 
Binary rates: 3.5/5
