F.U.N. Focus: ATLANTIS again [part 6: Non-Atlantis pieces]

July 30, 2014

0

To wrap up this F.U.N. Focus, here are some pieces that lack the Atlantis keyword but could be useful on non-keyword-yet-thematic builds featuring dolphin speed characters. Starting from the cheapest: ^^^^^^^^^^ Mera (Crisis): She’s a got good movement value of 8, but her 15 DV and 7 AV make her the least of the swimming […]

F.U.N. Focus: ATLANTIS again [part 5: Over 125 points]

What’s scarier than sharks in the open sea? Orcas. See the apex predators of Atlantis — 126 points and higher — in the post below. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Above 125 points: alpha predators ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Experienced Sub-Mariner (Fantastic Forces): Identical to the 122-point LE, except sporting the Defenders TA, costing 8 more points and strangely missing the three mid-life clicks […]

This  F.U.N. Focus (previous parts here) continues, being a needed update to a far-too-long article reviewing all characters with the Atlantis keyword in much better bite-sized installments. These are the main hitters for this keyword: the killer sharks, the maneaters, the 101-125 bracket. It ain’t safe to go in the water! ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ 101-125 points: maneaters ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Aquaman (Brightest […]

This new F.U.N. Focus (previous parts here) is a needed update to a far-too-long article reviewing all characters with the Atlantis keyword in much better bite-sized installments. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ 76-100 points: sharks ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Namora (Hammer of Thor): At 76 points she’s not only another lite Charging brick from Atlantis, she’s also the first flier and thus a valuable […]

F.U.N. Focus: ATLANTIS again [part 2: 51-75 points]

This new F.U.N. Focus (previous parts here) is a needed update to a far-too-long article reviewing all characters with the Atlantis keyword in much better bite-sized installments. And speaking of bite-sized, last installment looked at the cheapest members of the keyword. Now it’s time to take a gander at pieces that take a bigger bite of your […]

F.U.N. Focus: ATLANTIS again [part 1: 50 and under]

July 2, 2014

A few years back, I did a far-too-long article reviewing all characters with the Atlantis keyword. This series is a needed update in much better bite-sized installments. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Below 50 points: shrimps and chum ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Rookie Aquaman (Hypertime): At 27 points, he’s by far the cheapest Atlantean in the game, and until last year was the […]

F.U.N. Focus: ATLANTIS again [intro]

June 27, 2014

A few years back, I did a far-too-long article reviewing all characters with the Atlantis keyword. This series is a needed update. For example, the old article opens with a list of the problems an Atlantis team has: the weakness of the Swim ability on maps with little to no water, the dearth of supporting […]

Some years ago, I wrote about wanting to play a team of nothing but different version of Robin, The Boy Wonder. Well, I did this past weekend, with the following team:   Robin [Arkham Origins] 72 + Batman Family ATA 4 Robin [Arkham Asylum] 66 Robin [Streets of Gotham 048] 59 + Batman Family ATA 4 Robin […]

F.U.N. Focus: the Legion of Super-Heroes [part 12]

Earlier in the series, Heroclixin’ wrote that being mostly wildcards was a weakness for the all-Legion force. But as we’ve seen, quite a lot of team abilities are actually available for the team. Let’s look at each. Animal ATA. This gives the team a shot at being able to bypass enemy Stealth or Shape Change […]

F.U.N. Focus: the Legion of Super-Heroes [part 11]

Earlier in this series, Heroclixin’ wrote that 2011’s Superman set had the mother lode of Legionnaires at 11. But that’s NOTHING compared with 2014’s Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes’ TWENTY-SEVEN. As you might expect, this set changes the game for the Legion in a big way. Let’s look at how. Cosmic Boy (Superman & […]
