DC HeroClix: Streets of Gotham Preview

DC HeroClix Streets of Gotham: Mr. Zsasz!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Happy Halloween!  We continue our series of previews for the upcoming DC HeroClix: Streets of Gotham with reminder that some of the scariest things found in the dark don’t have fur, fangs or wings.  Beware of the prolific serial killer, Mr. Zsasz, who has escaped again from Arkham Asylum!

Mr. Zsasz comes into play at 45 points and has a trait, Counting Coup, which represents his bizarre practice of carving a tally mark into his skin for each of his victims.  With Counting Coup, each time Mr. Zsasz damages an opposing character, place a tally token on his character card.  When Mr. Zsasz makes an attack, you may remove one tally token from his card to modify his damage value by +1 or remove two tally tokens to have the damage dealt from the attack be penetrating.

The gaunt, tall Mr. Zsasz begins his dial with two clicks of Stealth as he patiently waits and smiles in the shadows for his victims.  On those same two clicks, Mr. Zsasz brandishes knives to slash, stab, and slice (Blades/Claws/Fangs) his victims.  Stealth is followed by a pair of Flurry clicks as Mr. Zsasz’ unpredictable fury makes him a dangerous foe to approach.

Defensively, Mr. Zsasz has the Indomitable combat ability to show that he’s relentless in his pursuit of more victims to add to his tally.  His agile, wiry physique is represented via Combat Reflexes on his second and third clicks.  On Mr. Zsasz’ last three clicks he has Exploit Weakness to help him kill the “zombies” (a term which he uses to refer to his victims) and free them from their meaningless lives.

Mr. Zsasz possesses the Arkham Asylum keyword and Batman Enemy team ability, which allows him to replace his attack value with the unmodified attack value of an adjacent friendly character using the same team ability.  Mr. Zsasz makes a viable secondary close combat attacker and should find his way onto many teams.

Thanks for reading!  Please join us on Friday as we visit with another Arkham Asylum resident with a hankerin’ for homicidal horseplay.  Until then, keep your nightlight on and keep your clix off their KOs!
