Enough of the roof-perchers and cloud-flyers and lightpole crawlers. Say hi to #7 top Heroclix of 2008, the cart-swingin' Thing!

Why's he make the list? Read on:

 

1. Clobberin' Time.

Most bricks aren't mobile enough. Thanks to this full-move-Charge-like power, Thing doesn't have this problem. He can get into the fight just fine with or without a TKer. Being able to Quake is just icing -- and, apparently, very inexpensive icing at that, because he's...

 

2. ...100 points cheap.

For the cost, he's awesome. He can anchor a team of supporters or be the mother of backup fighters. He can wear the Outwit-proofing Fortitude feat without tipping the scales. If there's one figure in Heroclix that definitely looks like it didn't follow the point formula, it's him.

 

3. 18 DV.

And that's with Invulnerability, and not just one top click of it, but two! Even when he slips to Toughness, he still holds the 18 DV. Not being an easy KO really helps his brick status.

 

4. 4 damage. On both ends.

'Nuff said.

 

5. Ever Lovin' Pal.

This token-removing power makes him potentially useful even while he's being taxied into position. And believe me, even though it only works on teammates (not himself), it can truly swing games his way when it works.

 

6. Not top-heavy.

Holding his DV for his first three clicks and his best AV on clicks 2-3 means he's pushable. And his special Toughness+Willpower in mid-life means he's no slouch then, either.

 

Although he doesn't have as many reasons to be on the list as many others, his utter lack of weaknesses (besides a soft end-dial -- and how many figures DON'T have that?) along with that great support power means he keeps the perfect score I gave him in July (http://www.pojo.com/heroclix/COTD/2008/July/7-6.shtml) and earns him the #7 spot.

 

So if he's at #7, who could possibly be higher? Well, The Thing isn't the only rock-faced fellow on the list...
