Greetings HeroClix Fans!
One week closer to Release Day as we continue our previews from the upcoming DC HeroClix: Teen Titans set. Today we take a look at a hero of light, The Ray!
The Ray’s starting movement is 12 and he possesses Hypersonic Speed. This allows him to automatically break away from opposing characters and then use his full movement to either make a close or ranged combat attack. The Ray has a range of 5 squares so this will allow him to make a ranged attack from three squares away during the free action portion of his Hypersonic Speed attack.
The Ray’s power structure on his top 3 clicks stays the same, with Hypersonic Speed on movement, Super Senses on his defense, and a special power in his damage slot. This special power, Light Manipulation, allows The Ray and adjacent friendly characters that share a keyword with him to use Stealth, but only when he has just one action token. The Ray has Freedom Fighters, Justice League, Justice League International, and Young Justice as his keywords.
Imagine the fun of being able to pair up The Ray with Guy Gardner from the DC HeroClix: Streets of Gotham set on a Justice League International theme team and then hiding Guy Gardner in hindering terrain using Stealth; this will be great for team building and strategy.
On The Ray’s next two clicks he loses his special power but gains Phasing/Teleport for movement, which still makes it very hard to lock this guy down in adjacency. The Ray will be able to use Pulse Wave during his attacks targeting all characters within three-squares. On defense, The Ray uses Energy Shield/Deflection, modifying his defense value by +2 against ranged attacks.
On The Ray’s final click he keeps Phasing/Teleport but trades in Energy Shield/Deflection for Regeneration, where on a roll of 6 he would get to heal back to his second click. The Ray finishes out his dial with the ability to use Shape Change, in which an opponent may not even be able to target The Ray with an attack.
The Ray comes in at just 74 points. With his keywords and the JLA team ability he should be easy to build into a team or a piece to be looked at during some fun sealed play.
Thanks for reading but be sure to come back next time as we continue to look at figures from the upcoming DC HeroClix: Teen Titans set. Until then, Shape Change for the win!
