Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Today’s preview from the upcoming DC HeroClix: Teen Titans set bring us a founding member of the New 52’s Teen Titans who also has ties to Batman. We are pleased to present Tim Drake (aka Red Robin)!
Red Robin comes into play at 101 points and has an Improved Movement ability called Wings, which lets him ignore elevated terrain, hindering terrain and characters when he moves. Red Robin begins his dial with Stealth, then switches to Charge on his next click. Flurry appears on Red Robin’s last three clicks.
In his attack slot he starts with two clicks of a special power called Find a Weakness. This special power lets Red Robin use Outwit, but he may only target characters that he has attacked this turn. Find a Weakness returns on Red Robin’s last three clicks. Sandwiched between those runs of Find a Weakness are two clicks of Incapacitate, which can be used in close combat or at Red Robin’s range of up to six squares.
In the first three clicks of his defense slot, Red Robin has another special power called Protective Wings. Protective Wings lets Red Robin use Defend and Toughness. When an adjacent friendly character replaces its defense value with Red Robin’s defense value, that character can use Toughness. Red Robin also has Leadership in his damage slot on the same three clicks as Protective Wings. He then switches to Willpower and Exploit Weakness for the remainder of his dial.
Red Robin makes a viable choice for teams that are built around the Batman Family, Detective, Martial Artist or Teen Titans keywords. He also has the Titans team ability, which allows him to heal when adjacent to a friendly character using the same team ability. Red Robin has an aggressive set of combat values that make him an excellent attacker, and his Find a Weakness and Protective Wings special powers make him an equally good team player.
Thanks for reading! Please join us for our next DC HeroClix: Teen Titans previews as we look at another Team Dial. Until then, may your Probability Control rolls always be in your favor!
