Greetings HeroClix Fans!
For today’s preview from the upcoming DC HeroClix: Teen Titans set, we take a look at a figure from the most recent version of the Teen Titans. She’s a metahuman insectoid brought unto the team by Red Robin, Skitter!
Skitter has an Improved Movement combat ability appropriately called Skittering, allowing her to ignore both Elevated and Hindering terrain, as well as characters for movement purposes. Skitter begins play lashing out at an opposing figure with Charge. Once in position, she can use her printed damage, or opt to try for more damage with her multiple arms in the form of Blades/Claws/Fangs. Defensively, Skitter has the opportunity to evade an attack with her scary looks, represented by Shape Change. If an opposing figure makes a successful attack, her exoskeleton will protect her, as Impervious will allow her to reduce damage or ignore it out right. Skitter’s next click sees Shape Change and Impervious replaced with Invulnerability, as she now relies on her hard shell for protection.
Mid dial, Skitter gains a special power called Webbing, allowing her to use Plasticity. Also, characters can’t break away automatically from Skitter, or use Improved Movement: Characters while adjacent to her. This special power will be on all clicks except her last. Another click into her dial and Skitter shows her strong arms aren’t just for cutting as she now has Super Strength to grab an object with which to hit a foe. Skitter has the ability to deliver a piercing blow as Exploit Weakness will make her damage penetrating. Also at this point, Skitter again changes damage reducers to Toughness, as her shell has been weakened.
On her last click, Skitter goes into a regenerating cocoon. She has printed 0 for movement, attack and damage, and again uses Impervious, paired with a 19 defense, to defend herself. She also has a special power called Cocoon Healing, which can’t be countered, allowing her to use Regeneration.
Skitter can be played on theme teams using the Teen Titans and Monster keywords. She possesses the Teen Titans team ability, which combined with her special power, can make her a useful healing battery for other friendly figures using this team ability. She also becomes a solid tie up piece with the ability to deal some solid damage through most of her dial. At 104 points, there will be plenty of room for support for her on your force.
That is all for today. Come back soon as we continue to preview figures from the upcoming upcoming DC HeroClix: Teen Titans set!
