DIAL & CARD:
http://www.wizkidsgames.com/heroclix/dc/figuregallery.asp?unitid=13908

STRENGTHS:
With either Psychic Blast or Pulse Wave all dial long, Alex Luthor can deliver the hurt to bricks, and his 8 range gives him opportunity. But his main claim to glory is his "Manipulator" damage power combining Outwit, Perplex and Shape Change: even if you get through his opening Stealth, you may not be able to attack and then he might Super Sense the attack. Off that formidable first click he's got "Earth 154 and 426" which allows him to basically outwit BFCs. Nice.
His DV also gets a boost with Energy
Shield/Deflection. A run of Outwit fills out his dial.

WEAKNESSES:
Neither his AV nor his damage are the best, and any hit he takes is going to leave a mark. "E154+462"
won't help much if no BFCs are in play. He's not very long-lived for his cost at all.

CARDS?
NANOBOTS is key to keep him at the top of his dial.

IN SUM:
Like all wildcards, he's about as good as the TAs he can copy. But Alex REALLY needs them to shine at all.
His role is as a backfield sniper and supporter to more active fighters on the team, and at his cost it might be tough to field the right ones in a standard 300-pointer. That first click is pretty good for that role, though.

RATING: 2.5 of 5. Add a point if you can max out his WC potential.
