Today's review is Booster Gold from Origin

 

Michael John Carter came to our time from the 25th century with stolen technology, fashioning himself a suit to become a hero.  He became a member of the JLI, got owned by Doomsday, got a new outfit made by Blue Beetle (Ted Kord), tried to own an island or something (always confused me), and then fell into obscurity for a while.  Recently, he has been seen in the phenomenal “Formerly known as…” and “I can’t believe its not the Justice League.”  Also, he has some busy time in Infinite Crisis and 52. 

 

He is one of my favorite comic characters, so I kind of hoped for something out of his click.  The old booster was a glorified taxi with range, and the new one they tried to do more to make him an attacker. 

 

The best versions out of the REV is the V because of his move and shoot with charge, but I like the LE the best because you save 10 points and get to take advantage of his range thanks to a click of running shot.

 

He is an LE, 70 points, 8 range 1 target, 7 clicks of life, a flier, no AE, and no team

Speed:  A single click of running shot followed by two of charge, not bad

Attack:  Charge works with super strength, values aren’t great and drop really low

Defense:  Average values, toughness keeps him alive a little longer, barrier can always help, ESD can make the defense a little harder to heal

Damage:  3 damage is always alright, and the enhancement and perplex can help out his teammates

The Good:  8 range is never bad

      Decent ranged and close combat abilities

      Perplex, barrier, and enhancement can help

The Bad:   Low attack values

     Damage is bad after click three


Feats:   ICWO is a must for his attack, Nanobots can help him heal, Protected can hit him onto his perplex click


Overall:    I really like the character, but I am not so sure about his click.  This game is about range, and move and shoot, and the LE has both.  He doesn’t have the slightly higher attack values or the probability control, but he has abilities that can help a team.  When used right, enhancement can really make some of your pieces damage givers, and perplex always helps.  The problem is that he is not much of a threat at all, and 70 points is a lot to play for a support piece/third string attacker.  He is really good for Justice League teams, but outside of that you won’t see him in competitive play.  This is the only version of the character I have, so I will be using him a lot.  For fun games, he is your best bet at a Booster Gold.

Constructed/Unrestricted:  2.5 / 5

Sealed/Draft:  N/A / 5

 

Overall:  2.5 / 5

 

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