Greetings, Heroclix fans!
For today’s DC HeroClix: Teen Titans preview, we continue our look at the Gen-13 Team Dial with a few of the team members that are packed with the dial! First off we have their youngest member, Freefall!
Freefall starts out with her trait I Don’t Know Why, But I Love Grunge which states “During the beginning of your turn, if a friendly character named Grunge took damage last turn, Freefall may be placed adjacent to Grunge and may make a close combat attack as a free action targeting an opposing character that caused Grunge to take damage last turn.” This allows Freefall to help protect her love, Grunge.
Freefall’s dial starts out with Force Blast and a speed value of 9, Telekinesis with an attack value of 10, and Energy Shield/Deflection with a defense value of 16. She also starts with Perplex and a damage value of 2. This combination of powers allows Freefall to help out her teammates. Later in her dial, Freefall gets Plasticity, Pulse Wave and Exploit Weakness, which allows her to tie up pieces and put the hurting on them as well.
When Freefall is attached to her Team Base (T004 Gen-13) and her image is shown on the Asset Dial, you can use Force Blast and Telekinesis. For 66 points, you can have Freefall fly around and help out her team.
Next up is Gen-13’s resident hot head, Burnout!
Burnout flies in with Running Shot and a speed value of 10, Barrier with a defense value of 17, and Ranged Combat Expert with a damage of 2. He also starts with attack of 10 and a special power called Catch Fire. Catch Fire says that Burnout can use Energy Explosion. When he does, characters successfully hit are dealt damage equal to the number of times hit by this attack times two. This allows Burnout to do a lot of damage to multiple figures while taking advantage of his 8 range. Burnout has this power for his first 4 clicks, giving him plenty of time to put the hurting on the other team.
Burnout also gets Mind Control, Pulse Wave, and Energy Shield Deflection. Burnout is a 76 point damage dealer who doesn’t know how to hold back. Burnout also attaches to the Gen-13 Team Base and gives Pulse Wave when his picture is shown on the Asset Dial.
Next up, we have Burnout’s closest friend on Gen-13, Sarah Rainmaker!
Sarah Rainmaker has an Improved Movement power called Uninhibited, which allows her to ignore characters for movement purposes. Sarah Rainmaker has Running Shot with a speed value of 9 on her first click. She also starts with an attack value of 11 with Smoke Cloud and a damage value of 3 with Ranged Combat Expert. Running Shot quickly changes to Force Blast on Sarah Rainmaker’s dial.
Sarah Rainmaker also has Energy Shield/Deflection most of her dial but ends it with a click of Willpower. She also gets Energy Explosion at the end of her dial, which lets her take advantage of her range of 7 squares and two targets. When she is attached to the Gen-13 Team Base, Sarah Rainmaker gives the team Energy Explosion with 3 targets when her image appears on the Asset Dial.
Thanks for joining us today and please check back again this week as we show you the last two members of the Gen-13 Team Dial from the upcoming DC set. Until next time, keep those dice rolling!
