Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Today we continue to explore the DC HeroClix: Justice League set as we check in with one of the villains in the set, Slade Wilson, Deathstroke!
Deathstroke begins play hiding the shadows to gain an advantage with Stealth. From his position of relative safety, Deathstroke can deprive an opposing figure of a critical power. Possessing the Indomitable combat ability, Deathstroke can act without fear of pushing damage, and his 7 range will allow him to make range4 attacks with little fear of retaliation from range. If an opposing figure chooses to base him, an entire dial of Toughness will reduce damage. Deathstroke also has a pretty cool special power allowing him to use Blades/Claws/Fangs. Additionally, this special power, called Precisely-Timed Strike, allows Deathstroke to roll a d6 and deal the result in damage to an opposing figure that moved into a square adjacent to Deathstroke after their action is resolved.
Once off his first click, Deathstroke gets more aggressive with his ability to make range attacks with a couple clicks of Running Shot, giving him some move and attack ability. Also, a few clicks of Penetrating/Psychic Blast will allow him to ignore damage reducers.
In the middle of his dial, Deathstroke loses Running Shot and sees the last of his Penetrating/Psychic Blast clicks. Outwit returns for a click at this point in his dial. From this point forward, Deathstroke katana wielding close combat machine. First, Precisely-Timed Strike returns for a click, this time paired with Exploit Weakness. Next, Deathstroke gets a standard click of Blades/Claws/Fangs, with Flurry to give him an extra attack.
At the end of his dial, Deathstroke again has the combination of Precisely-Timed Strike and Exploit Weakness. His last click sees the return of regular Blades/Claws/Fangs, again with Flurry, and this time with Exploit Weakness added to his dial.
Deathstroke will have some solid theme team options to choose from with the Injustice League, Martial Artist, Soldier, and Society keywords. With an aggressive power set and solid stats, at 120 points, Deathstroke will be an excellent choice on whatever force you include him on.
