Greetings, HeroClix fans!
We continue our week-long look at the members of the N.O.W.H.E.R.E. organization found in the upcoming DC HeroClix: Teen Titans set with a preview of one of Harvest’s hired guns. Please welcome Deathstroke’s daughter, Rose Wilson!
The prickly Rose Wilson (see what we did there?) comes into play at 126 points and has a trait called Hidden Danger, which allows her to use Super Senses if she has no action tokens. She also has an Improved Movement combat ability called Incredibly Agile, which allows her to ignore elevated terrain, hindering terrain and characters when moving.
Rose Wilson begins her dial with two clicks of Running Shot and Penetrating/Psychic Blast, both of which make good use of her range value of six squares and two targets. If that’s not enough, Rose Wilson’s opening two clicks also sport Perplex in her damage slot so she can modify combat values as needed. Defensively, she has Toughness and a value of 18 on those same clicks. Pushing damage isn’t much of a concern for Rose Wilson, who also has the Indomitable combat ability.
As we move to the middle of Rose Wilson’s dial, we see that Penetrating/Psychic Blast remains for a click before she switches to Energy Explosion. However, Running Shot makes way for Flurry and Toughness is dropped in favor of Combat Reflexes. A special power called A Killer Among Killers replaces Perplex on Rose Wilson’s damage slot. A Killer Among Killers reads, “When Rose Wilson attacks an opposing character with a higher unmodified attack value, damage from the attack is penetrating damage.” This special power remains in Rose Wilson’s damage slot for the remainder of her dial.
Rose Wilson’s power set remains the same for her fourth and fifth clicks. However, on her last click she drops Flurry and Combat Reflexes in favor of Stealth and Regeneration, respectively.
Rose Wilson has an aggressive mix of powers and solid combat values. Early dial, she can really put a dent into an opposing force from range thanks to her combo of Running Shot, Penetrating/Psychic Blast, and Perplex. Mid-dial, she can be played as a close combatant with Flurry or keep her blasting away at range with Penetrating/Psychic Blast or Energy Explosion. Either way, A Killer Among Killers should help Rose Wilson take down stronger opposing characters by dishing out penetrating damage.
For theme-team play, Rose Wilson has only two keywords assigned to her: Martial Artist and N.O.W.H.E.R.E. However, she also has the Calculator team ability, which makes her a wild card.
