DC HeroClix: Streets of Gotham Preview

DC HeroClix Streets of Gotham: Black Canary!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Our previews for the DC HeroClix: Streets of Gotham countertop display set continue today with a former Justice League chairwoman and a valued member of Oracle’s Birds of Prey squad.  Please welcome Dinah Lance, aka Black Canary!

Coming in at 62 points, Black Canary hits the battle map with an Improved Movement ability, Hard To Pin Down, which allows her to ignore characters when she moves.  She also has a range of three.  Black Canary begins her dial with Leap/Climb in her speed slot and Combat Reflexes in her defense slot.

In her attack slot is a special power, Canary Cry, which lets her use Incapacitate.  When she uses it to make a close combat attack, Black Canary modifies her attack value by +2 and all adjacent opposing characters are targeted.  Canary Cry appears on Black Canary’s dial for her first three clicks.

On her second click, Black Canary trades in Leap/Climb for two clicks of Flurry as she uses Judo strikes to hurt her opponent.  Leap/Climb returns on Black Canary’s fourth click.  Combat Reflexes sticks around until Black Canary’s third click, when she picks up Willpower for the remainder of her dial.

Mid-dial, Black Canary’s advanced martial arts training reveals itself as she picks up Exploit Weakness in her damage slot.  On her last two clicks, Black Canary trades in Exploit Weakness for Close Combat Expert as she shows people that she was named Justice League chairwoman for a reason.

At 62 points, Black Canary makes a lean, mean secondary attacker who can pin down clusters of opposing characters with her Canary CryBlack Canary has an array of keywords (Birds of Prey, Justice League, Justice League International, and Martial Artist) that open up team building options.
