DC HeroClix: Batman Preview

DC HeroClix Batman: Batgirl!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Welcome to whole new week, which means we have another preview from the upcoming DC HeroClix: Batman set!  Today we shine the spotlight on a heroine who went from being the Spoiler to Robin, and finally donned the mantle of Batgirl!

Batgirl begins play able to get to where she will do her force the most good thanks to Leap/Climb.  Once in a good spot, a run of Perplex will allow Batgirl to modify a combat value to best help her team, her Electro-Magna-Gooperangs special power will allow Batgirl to use Energy Explosion with two targets, with the added benefit of giving an action token to any characters that are hit by this attack.  Lastly, Toughness will allow some damage reduction for the first half of her dial.

Late-dial, Batgirl can make multiple close combat attacks thanks to a helping of Flurry.  Willpower will allow her to act without fear of pushing damage in this part of her dial.  Batgirl also gains the ability to use Outwit on an opposing character within 5 squares of her due to a special power called In Contact With Proxy. 

Batgirl possesses the Batman Family, and Batman Inc keywords to give her a couple of theme team options, while the Batman Ally team ability will allow her the use of Stealth to keep her fairly well protected on her opponents turn.   At 71 points, Batgirl will be a useful support figure and secondary attacker on whatever force you choose to include her on.

Thanks for reading, and as always, be sure to check back soon as we preview more figures from more upcoming HeroClix releases!
