Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Welcome back to another preview from the DC HeroClix: Batman set. Today we visit a hero who deduced the Caped Crusader’s secret identity and became his sidekick. Today’s preview then eventually struck out on his own and changed his identity to lead the latest version of the Teen Titans; we are pleased to present Tim Drake, Red Robin!
Red Robin possesses a trait called I Know Bruce’s Tricks, which allows him to use Stealth if he is within 8 squares of another character that possesses the Batman Ally team ability. (Note that this trait doesn’t specify that a figure must be friendly for this to work!)
On his opening click, Red Robin possesses a click of Toughness to protect him from some damage while Leadership allows Red Robin get his team into position with the potential to add another action to your action pool as well as remove an action token from an adjacent friendly figure.
After than initial click, Red Robin takes himself into battle. Running Shot with the Flight combat ability will help him work around the Stealth granted by his trait as he rushes into battle. A 4 range may be on the shorter side, but it will get him close enough to the action to set up the back end of his dial. Perplex will allow Red Robin modify a combat stat where it will do himself or his team the most good. Defensively, Red Robin has a special power called My Wings Will Protect Me that allows him to use Energy Shield Deflection, and if targeted by a range combat attack, Toughness as well.
Towards the end of his dial end, Red Robin gains Flurry on every click as he engages his opposition, while some more Toughness helps protect him from damage. Red Robin also has a couple of clicks of Outwit to deprive an opposing figure of a key power.
Red Robin possesses the Teen Titans team ability to allow him to heal himself or an ally using this team ability. The Batman Family, Detective, Teen, and Teen Titans keywords will provide plenty of theme team options for Red Robin to be put on. At only 80 points, Red Robin brings a solid array of support powers, and will make an excellent secondary attack piece as he backs up his team’s heavy hitters!
Thanks for joining us and be sure to come back soon as we preview more figures from the upcoming DC HeroClix: Batman set!
