DIAL:

ANALYSIS:
World War II Ultimate Cap brings one great strength to your force -- an Attack Value that simply does not quit. It drops to a low of 9 on his final slot with every other 10 or better. He also boasts Super Strength and Charge to open his dial and there's his Followthrough power, which essentially gives him a type of Flurry when he KOs enemies in close combat. So he can really deliver the pain.

Until, that is, he loses Charge. Then his damage drops to 1, making him near-useless at range and totally dependent on Close Combat Expert. Pray he isn't Outwitted. His defense takes an Infinity Challenge-like dive on his last few clicks, too, despite the modest boost provided by Combat Reflexes.
One might wish to Leap/Climb Cap away, but his speed isn't so hot by then and he'll be all too easily pasted at range.

FEATS?
I like ARMOR PIERCING to get more out of his great AV late in his dial.

ETC.
He has the BEST flavor text on his card.

IN SUM:
It's tough to rate this one. One the one hand, such high hit ability is hard to pass up. On the other, his low damage and quick stat drops in all other arenas makes him less than optimal for nearly 100 points.
With better damage, defense, or both, he'd be a 5-star fig. As is...?

RATING: ...3 of 5. Not bad, I guess.

Special Power: When an attack by Captain America KOs an opposing character, he many immediately make a close combat attack against another adjacent opposing character as a free action.

 Speed  -- Moderately fast speed that will have no downfalls crossing hindering terrain due to the Ultimates TA. Leap/Climb is good at the end.

 Attack  -- The lowest value is a NINE and he has it for only one click! Super Strength and Charge make one of the best combos in HeroClix.

 Defense  -- Just the way I like it. Starts smooth and strong to plunder down to a mere 12. And 12 isn't that bad at close combat due to Combat Reflexes.

 Damage  -- 3 is okay. Super Strength will help out. I'm not a fan of that CCE with 1 damage.

Feat Candidates
~ Nanobots
~ Pounce but it's a chance since Cap could easily fly by his last clicks
~ Protected

~ Captain America almost feels undercosted. You'll never have trouble attacking someone and he's very mobile. Defense can be healed. And he can heal via Nanobots. Fighting ranged opponents? Cap has 6 range. He is a prize of the Avengers set.

Cap America receives a 4/5.

 Abomination NEXT!
