Greetings HeroClix Fans!
And welcome as we continue with previews from the upcoming DC HeroClix: Teen Titans set. Today, we bring another figure from N.O.W.H.E.R.E., a teenage researcher working to take down the organization from the inside, and eventual leader of the Ravagers, Fairchild!
One of the first things you’ll notice about Fairchild is a printed 0 range, and some Mind Control and Incapacitate on her first two clicks. Whereas Mind Control has a built in minimum range of 4, this does little to make Incapacitate useful for anything other than close combat attacks. But, Fairchild has a trait to help with this called Strategist, which allows her to use either power with a range value of 6. To continue with her opening two clicks, Fairchild has Barrier, to throw up a protective wall to defend herself and any friendly figures behind her. Probability Control, representing her double agent status, will allow her to force an opponent to re-roll their dice on their turn, and make one re-roll on hers.
Mid-dial, Fairchild has the potential to get more offensive as her powers manifest themselves. She has a special power for the rest of her dial representing her science skills, and her new found powers, called Scientist or Fighter. This special power allows Fairchild to choose at the beginning of your turn to rely on her science skills with Perplex, or, her new fighting abilities with Quake and Close Combat Expert. Defensively, Fairchild gains the ability to reduce damage in stages, with a click of Toughness, two of Invulnerability, and finely, with Impervious, giving her a chance to ignore damage altogether. One more click of Probability Control on her Toughness click can help force an opponent to miss her with their attack roll.
The Indomitable combat ability will allow Fairchild to act without fear of pushing damage. Fairchild can be played on theme teams built with the N.O.W.H.E.R.E., Ravagers, and Scientist keywords. At 85 points, Fairchild will be an excellent utility piece on whatever force you choose to include her on.
That’s all we have for today. Be sure to check back on Wednesday as we continue our previews from the upcoming DC HeroClix: Teen Titans set!
