As I wrote last time, 2010 was a good year for the game. Starting today, I’m counting down the top ten HeroClix released last year. Let’s jump right in!

#10:

But who's brave and who's bold?

The Flash and Green Lantern (The Brave and the Bold #048)

This double-based figure starts the Top Ten with a number of great elements:

  • double TK SP allows them to sling out two pals at once;
  • 8 range and 2 targets (thanks to a late errata in the Player’s Guide). That really works well with…
  • Duo Attack and 4 damage. They can really lay down some hurt.
  • Superb Defense, starting and ending with 19 and boasting Invulnerability in the middle where the numbers sag;
  • “Two-Man Justice League,” a SP allowing them to use a damage power missing from your team for a round. Need an AV boost? Pick Perplex. A damage boost? RCE or CCE. A defense boost? Shape Change…or maybe Outwit.
  • Late-dial Hypersonic Speed with revived stats;
  • 12 Speed all dial long.

This duo almost slipped off my list for their really underwhelming AV for their fairly mammoth 200-point cost. But their ability to use Perplex (potentially, anyhow) for most of their dial counters that weakness. Despite their price tag, they are not a tentpole piece; surround them with other solid fighters.

Be back tomorrow for number 9, a piece that’s pretty much the complete opposite of this high-cost, heroic duo.
