Greetings Heroclix Fans!
Today we will continue our previews of the upcoming DC Heroclix: Teen Titans set by swinging over to Blüdhaven to take a look at its protector, Nightwing!
Nightwing has an Improved Movement power called “Flying Grayson” which allows him to ignore elevated terrain, hindering terrain, and other characters for movement purposes. Nightwing also possesses a Trait called “Call If You Need Help, Bruce which grants Nightwing the Batman Ally team ability if another character on your force possesses it! This potential second team ability (along with his Teen Titans team abilty he already possesses) only increases Nightwing’s versatility, and is certainly a consideration when teaming him up with characters from his Batman Family past.
At 110 points, Nightwing’s dial begins with an 8 movement Charge, 11 attack, 17 defense with Super Senses, and a 3 damage with the special power “A Leader and a Detective”. This special power says “Nightwing can use Leadership and Outwit. If an opposing character within 4 squares is given an action to use Perplex, Nightwing and adjacent friendly characters modify their defense by +1 until your next turn.” This special power means your opponents will have to think twice about if and when they want to use Perplex when Nightwing is around! Nightwing loses Charge but gains Incapacitate and Combat Reflexes with a 17 defense value on his second click.
Two clicks in, Nightwing has the option of an 80 point value dial, and begins again with Charge but retains the Incapacitate, Combat Reflexes and his special damage power from his second click. Nightwing’s dial than alternates between Combat Reflexes and Willpower the rest of his dial. Nightwing gets Close Combat Expert Middial as well as Flurry. Nightwing also ends his dial with two clicks of Outwit.
Nightwing can also be attached to the T-001 New Teen Titans Team Base. When attached to the Team Base and his image is shown on the Asset Dial, you can use Outwit. Additionally only adjacent characters can target them with Outwit. Nightwing brings a lot to the table to help out any teams with the Batman Family or Teen Titans keywords.
Thanks for joining us today and please keep checking back as we show you more of the DC Heroclix Teen Titans set. Until next time, keep off those K.O. clicks!
