Rurouni KJS

 

From the depths of the sea comes #4: Namor from Secret Invasion. Reviewed in October, I gave him a very high score (http://www.pojo.com/heroclix/COTD/2008/Oct/28.shtml). Time hasn't changed that opinion. Here's why:

 

1. Charge + Flurry.

Part of his Avenging Son SP, this is the best power combo in the game, especially combined with Super Strength and his...

 

2. ...Natural 4 damage.

Which he's got on top AND end-dial. With the right objects, he can deal up to 11 clicks of damage in a single round on his first click...and even as much as 8 on his LAST click! And his damage doesn't drop below 3, either, which is good for...

 

3. ...A full dial of Flurry.

Whether part of SP or the red Speed power on the Power and Abilities chart, he can punch twice a turn all the time. Half of it's paired with Super Strength, too, so Subby here has the ability to deal 6+ clicks of damage every time he attacks, especially due to his...

 

4. ...11 AV.

Makes the above damage much more likely to stick (again, even on his last click). Even better, it spikes up to 12 and only sinks to a pair of nines late-dial before arcing up to 11 again. 

 

5. High DV.

Namor has more 18s than any other value, and only drops to 16 by the end.

 

6. Flight, but taxiable.

He's a Dolphin speed piece, so he can be carried. Meanwhile his Avenging Son SP grants Flight ability for supreme mobility. He can't carry (that's a separate skill that the Wing and Transporter symbols grant) but that's an OK tradeoff for some of the benefits to being a swimmer (SUBMERGED, anyone?).

 

7. GREAT price.

For exactly half your usual 300 pointer, he's a fantastic tentpole yet cheap enough to fit on at least one more grade-A fighter to back him up, even if you add the Fortitude feat.

 

8. Defenders TA.

This doesn't seem so great, until you consider his high DV  and the fact that wildcards can now only borrow DV from actual Defenders. Suddenly, he's a decent support piece or can help a wildcard meat shield taxi take fire for him more easily.

 

9. A shot a Regeneration.

On a map with water terrain, he can dive into it and use his third SP "Aquatic Rejuvenation" to self-heal back to some of his best clicks.

 

The original Marvel superhero, Namor is a great Heroclix piece that's easily among the top five of the year. When I want to deliver a straight beatdown, he's one of the first I reach for, even before any Superman. And now, with the physical realms accounted for, the next on the list represents a dimensional shift...
