Greetings Heroclix Fans!
For today’s DC Heroclix: Teen Titans preview, we find ourselves teleported to the Crucible by one of Harvest’s minions, Leash!
Leash has a trait called Piece of Me which states at the beginning of the game, choose an opposing character. That character modifies its defense value by -2 when Leash targets it with the Capture ability. This is helpful with Leash’s special speed power Capture, which he has on all but his last click. Capture allows Leash to use the Capture ability; when he does he may target a single opposing character with a ranged combat attack instead of a close combat attack, but with a -2 to his attack value. This allows him to be able to capture an opposing figure up to four squares away from him and if it is the character chosen with Piece of Me then the roll needed is about the same as if it were a close combat capture.
Leash also has a special attack power called Psionic Coils. Psionic Coils allows Leash to use both Telekinesis and Poison. This allows Leash to either help get his friends out into the fray of things or bring in opposing characters to him so he can take advantage of his Poison, which might be for quite some time with his beginning dial Super Senses.
At the end of his dial, Leash has Exploit Weakness which allows him to ignore opposing characters damage reducers when he attacks. Leash also ends his dial with Phasing/Teleport, which allows him to move to where he wants to go within his 8 movement. Leash also has the Calculator Team Ability, allowing him to copy friendly characters’ team abilities.
Leash is also only 96 points, making him a formidable ally for any teams with the Monster or N.O.W.H.E.R.E. key words.
Thanks for joining us today and please continue to check for our next preview from the upcoming DC HeroClix: Teen Titans set. Until next time, keep those figures off their KO clicks!
