Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Happy release day! For our final DC HeroClix: Batman preview we reveal the last of the Prime figures in the set: Selena Kyle (aka Catwoman). First, let’s take a look at Catwoman’s dial (#007a in the set)!
This femme fatale with a fascination for felines makes a great addition to any force as a secondary attacker or tie-up piece. Incorporating Catwoman on theme teams should also easy since she has the Birds of Prey and Gotham Underworld keywords.
Catwoman comes into play at 71 points and has a trait, We Leave the Masks On, which allows her to use Stealth. In addition, when Catwoman is adjacent to a friendly character with the Batman Ally team ability, she can use Plasticity and Shape Change. It’s the purrrr-fect trait for when Catwoman needs to slink away from dangerous situations!
In Catwoman’s speed slot she starts with four clicks of Leap/Climb to easily maneuver into position for an attack or get away from opposing characters. Catwoman’s last click of Leap/Climb also features Blades/Claws/Fangs in her attack slot as she makes it clear that trying to corner a cat will likely result in some bad scratches! Blades/Claws/Fangs stays on Catwoman’s attack slot for her last three clicks.
Catwoman opens her damage slot with a special power, Misdirection, which appears on her first three clicks. Misdirection allows Catwoman to use Outwit. In addition, give Catwoman a free action and remove an action token from an adjacent opposing character. When she does, Catwoman may place an action token on any other opposing character within 6 squares and line of fire!
Finally, Catwoman starts her dial defensively with a click of Super Senses as those nine lives of hers help her evade attacks. Super Senses reappears on Catwoman’s last two clicks. Sandwiched between those clicks is a short run of Combat Reflexes as Catwoman showcases her catlike agility.
This brings us to the final Prime figure in the DC HeroClix: Batman set, Selena Kyle (#007b)!
As a reminder, only ONE Prime character may be fielded on your force regardless of the build total and these characters are marked by a green background on their character card and a green ring around the base.
Selena Kyle hits the battle map at 69 points and has a range of three with one target for her ranged attacks. She also begins play with a trait, Procurer of Fine Artifacts, which allows her to use Stealth. In addition, you can give Selina Kyle a free action when she’s adjacent to a character with a relic on its character card, then roll a d6 that can’t be rerolled. If the result of the roll is one of the numbers needed to pick up the relic, place the relic on Selina Kyle’s character card. And in true klepto-kitty fashion, Selina Kyle isn’t limited to rolling once per game for each relic!
A prolific cat burglar, Selena Kyle starts with Leap/Climb in her speed slot as she gets in and out . Leap/Climb reappears mid-dial for two clicks, then once again on Selena Kyle’s last click.
