Today's review is Lex Luthor from Justice League

Special Power

Defense – Ruthless – Luthor can use mastermind, but can treat a friendly figure within 4 clear spaces as if it were adjacent.

 

Damage – Everything has a price – Luthor can use perplex.  When he targets a friendly character, roll a d6.  On a result of a 1, deal 1 unavoidable damage to the target.

 

Also, he does fly. The picture on the site is wrong.

 

Speed: Stealth is always good, and phasing gets him where he needs to go

Attack: Good values whole time.  Psy blast gets the damage through.  EE with 1 target sucks, Pulse wave with high damage I love.

Defense:  16 with Super isn’t great, but 18 is.  Rest of the time average numbers with an improved mastermind.


Damage: Values are awful.  Opening outwit is always good.  White power means your basically just going to be perplexing Luthor or an opponents defense down…thus helping the whole team.

 
The Good:  8 range

      Hard to hurt

      Good attack values

      Support powers full dial

      Stealth/Psy Blast/Outwit is one of my favorite combos

      Wildcard

     

The Bad:  Only 8 clicks

                Doesn’t do a lot of damage

                1 target EE

                No move and shoot

                Best defense is on second click


Feats:  Fortitude I would use because he is cheap enough to fit it, and it would keep him hard to hit for most of his dial.  Thwart can come in handy.  Nanobots works well for most the dial.  Protected is a MUST on those first 2 clicks.  In unrestricted bizarro world games, Nova Blast could tear up.


Overall:  Well, here we get in my opinion the most playable version of Lex Luthor…it only took 5 years to happen.  His attack umbers stay good the whole time, with powers that he can actually take advantage of.  He has probably one of my favorite opening clicks of all time, because Stealth/Outwit/and Psy Blast makes him hard to hit, can help him hit past damage reducers, and STILL be able to outwit something else.  He is a wildcard, which can give him unlimited potential.  Also, he never really craps out throughout his dial.  His damage is low for the most part, but the powers make sure that the damage will go through.  He has a shallow dial, but can easily run away thanks to phasing, and the white power on defense will keep him around seemingly forever.  He needs help and mastermind fodder to be really effectinve, and I think a prob controller can be a crucial asset.  He needs help, and could front a 300 point team, but he would really shine in 400+ games.  Lois Lane and Alfred Pennyworth are his best friends btw. 

Constructed/Unrestricted: 3 / 5

Sealed/Draft: 2.25 / 5 (not enough TA’s to work with)

 

Overall: 3 / 5

 

“Heroclix….they’re cool, addictive, and available….the things practically sell themselves.”
