DIAL & CARD:

STRENGTHS:

Charge+Flurry is the best combo in the Special Powers era of Heroclix, especially with Super Strength, and Arkillo's got it in "Hungry for Battle". Being Invulnerable with 18 DV helps, too, as does Exploit Weakness. He's pushable, too: mid-dial, Flurry and Steal Energy could keep him in the game for a long time in combination with his next Special Power, which gives him free half-Barrier (two squares at halved range) to cut off retaliation from Outwitters, snipers or even close combat from diagonal squares. Late-dial he gets Steal Energy, Willpower and Exploit for a pretty deadly combo. Finally, though he's best in close, don't forget that his 8 range and 3+ damage make him very effective at shooting as well.

 

WEAKNESSES:

That great early SP is a bit wasted on his 9 AV. You're gonna hate seeing Quake on his dial.

 

CARDS TO CONSIDER:

CONSTRUCT could make his free Barrier even more disruptive by forcing enemies to make breakaways. If you want him as a light tentpole, FORTITUDE him. Don't forget that KINETIC ACCELERATOR for his alpha-strike Charge; you might be able to hit from 10 out! In unrestricted play, DAMAGE SHIELD works until late-dial...a good fit for this melee fighter.

 

IN SUM:

He's like a cheaper Namor with a gun. 'Nuff said. 4 of 5.
