Batman

Limited Edition


Reviewed 07.21.2010

Rurouni KJS

Skrulls are done, and they filled the bill both from a playability and character selection standpoint, being neither overpowered nor unplayable or of iconic characters never-before-seen in the game. Let's see how the next pair of chase figures stack up.

=========================================

 

BATMAN

boot symbol

120 points

Team: Batman Ally

Keywords: Detective, Gotham City, JLA 

Range: 6 x 1

 

DIAL & CARD:

STRENGTHS:

A Stealthy Outwitter, like just about every OTHER Batman, this one stands apart with his first Special Power "From Among the Gargoyles" that treats the edge of buildings like hindering and thus affords him much greater flexibility in the Outwit role. Even without a rooftop, the power grants both Charge and Leap/Climb, and his other SP "Dark Knight"  grants free Smoke Cloud when he lacks tokens so he can remain perpetually Stealthed until he acts in earnest. 

 

But let's face it; a 120-point character is for FIGHTING, not hiding. Batman's no slouch there; "Dark Knight" also grants Flurry which, in conjunction with the Charge from his first SP, allows him to deal 6 damage in a single turn (and MORE once he gains Perplex on click #3-5)! Mid-dial, his 18 Defend can help teammates outlast attacks. End-dial Leap/Climb and Outwit can keep him alive and relevant. 

 

Oh, and did I mention he's Indomitable, too?

 

WEAKNESSES:

He's defensively barenaked and pricey (and dangerous enough to always be a prime target). 

 

CARDS TO CONSIDER:

Therefore, PROTECTED is a mandatory feat, all but. If you're more offensive minded, use LUNGE -- it's absolutely devastating to Charge, lunge 2 squares more to pick Flurry, hit, lunge 2 MORE squares and finish with a final Flurry. THWART or OUTSMART are good if Bats is strictly backup on bigger teams.

 

IN SUM:

This is the ultimate Batman, the guy who beats up White Martians and pulls the JLA's fat out of the fire. If not for the excellent 75-point Justice League common Batman, this one would be THE Batman to play...which would be awful for most players due to his inaccessibility as a chase figure. 4.5 of 5.
