Greetings HeroClix fans!
Today we continue our previews of DC HeroClix: Batman Classic TV by taking a look at the world’s smartest criminal, Egghead!
Egghead’s Elaborate Deathtrap ability is called Electro Thought Vacuum and the bonus is equal to the total number of distinct keywords possessed by the opposing characters on the map. So against #001 Batman and #003 Robin, Egghead’s bonus is 6 since the dynamic duo share four keywords between them (Batman Family, Gotham City, Martial Artist, and Police) and Batman has two additional keywords (Celebrity and Detective).
Egghead’s dial starts out with Mind Control, Energy Shield/Deflection, and two special powers. The first special power is in his attack slot and is called Eggcellent Attempt, Batman: CRRAACK! which says, “When Egghead resolves a move action, place a CRRAACK! token on this card. Give Egghead a free action and remove a CRRAACK! token to use Probability Control until your next turn.” This allows you to move Egghead into a position to be able to see an attack giving him a CRRAACK! token. Egghead then can pop that CRRAACK! token to be able to use Probability Control on the attack.
Egghead also has his special damage power called The Smartest Villain in Gotham City. The Smartest Villain in Gotham City lets Egghead use Outwit and Perplex but he can’t target characters that can use Outwit and Perplex. Egghead’s dial ends with two clicks of Exploit Weakness.
Egghead only costs 55 points and has the Scientist and United Underworld keywords. The Scientist keyword allows you to have a theme team with him and Egghead from the Marvel HeroClix: Chaos War set as well as Chang Tzu from DC HeroClix: Arkham Asylum set. Egg power!
