Colonel America
Supernova

During HeroClix's year-long dirtnap, many of the coveted chase pieces because affordable for the first time as panicky (or fatigued) collectors sold off their collections. So now that some more of you have these ultra-rare figures, what say you to a series of Clix of the Day reviews?

 

We'll start with the game's first true chase pieces, the Marvel zombies from the Supernova set of late 2006!

 

Last time I covered the not-so-friendly neighbor-chomping zombie Spider-Man. What about the unliving legendary Super-Soldier...

 

COLONEL AMERICA

55 points

Team: none

Keywords: Monster

Range:  4 x 2

 

DIAL & CARD:

STRENGTHS:

The only Supernova zombie (and also one of the few Monster-keyworded clix) with range, the Colonel boasts a decent AV and damage. Click #2 starts the usual run of Steal Energy, with #3 adding Exploit Weakness to ensure a good taste of braaaaains. 9 AV or better all dial is solid.

 

WEAKNESSES:

Slow Running Shot and low range isn't so good, especially since running into adjacency with the target isn't possible anymore. His defenses are soft all dial long as well. 

 

CARDS TO CONSIDER:

FORCE FIELD could give him a tiny bit of Toughness to start, but then he's beginning to tip the cost/benefit ratio somewhat badly.

 

IN SUM:

Only use him for themed play. Otherwise you're just going to be disappointed by his overall weakness. 2 of 5.

 

Is he still the best at what he does even as an alternate-universe zombie? Be here later this week for Wolverine!
