Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Welcome back as we take a look at a couple more figures from the upcoming DC HeroClix: Justice League Trinity War set. First, let’s take a look at the master of phobias, Scarecrow!
Scarecrow has an Improved Targeting ability that allows him to ignore hindering terrain called I See You Hiding. Scarecrow begins hiding himself in hindering terrain with Stealth. Also making him hard to target is an opening click of Shape Change. Should an opposing figure manage to hit him, he can use Mastermind to transfer the damage to an adjacent friendly figure. Keeping friendly figures adjacent also helps to share attack values with the Batman Enemy team ability.
Scarecrow also has a special power over half his dial called Fear Rules You Now which allows him to use Incapacitate, Mind Control and Poison. When he uses Incapacitate to place a second token on a target, the target modifies its attack by -1, and after actions resolve, Scarecrow may use Mind Control as a free action to target any hit characters. His 5 range with 2 targets may get him 2 figures to turn on your foe. A click into his dial, Scarecrow gets a couple of clicks of Outwit.
On his last two clicks, Scarecrow keeps opposing figures close with Plasticity, allowing his Poison to damage any adjacent opposing figure. Willpower will allow him to act 2 turns in a row with no fear of pushing damage. And Shape Change will again give him the ability to try to avoid attacks.
Scarecrow can be played in theme on teams using the Arkham Asylum, Legion of Doom, Scientist, and Secret Society of Super Villains keyword. At 93 points, Scarecrow will be a fun secondart attacker on most team builds.
Next up, we look at Shaggy Man.
Shaggy Man has a trait called Regenerate From Any Wound that allows you to heal him of one click of damage at the beginning of your turn.
Shaggy Man begins play rushing into battle using the always useful combination of Charge and Super Strength. Battle Fury will let him ignore an opposing figures Shape Change and . Invulnerability will protect him from counter attack.
On click 4, Shaggy Man slows down a bit as he now has Sidestep. Defensively, he has Toughness to reduce a bit of damage. On click number 6, he loses Super Strength. His defensive numbers begin to climb again as he has a special power called Restore Lost Limbs, allowing him to use Regeneration without reducing the result by 2. On his last click, he can try to avoid an attack with Super Senses.
Shaggy Man can be played in theme using his Robot and Secret Society of Super Villains keywords. At 153 points, he is a solid close combat attacker with strong attack and damage values, as well as good damage reduction with above normal Regeneration abilities.
That’s all for now. Thanks for joining us and be sure to check back soon as we preview more figures from the upcoming DC HeroClix: Justice League Trinity War set!
