Heroclix 23rd September, Crisis on Infinite Earths: Week Two

Batman from Batman Beyond and Spider-Girl

So about the wait been waiting for the other players build pools from Darren. Well it is week 2 of the Crisis on Infinite Earths campaign. So far I am doing well in the campaign after one week, first place in face. But what will the second week bring. I would like to note that I made a listing mistake on Mockingbird on last weeks post. She is from Sinister and not Supernova like I listed.

This week's, Week Two is just standard games. Round four is 400 points, round five is 200 point and round six is 300 points.

So Round Four, 400 points. I used my 400 point force that I made. Before I revile which figures from my build pool above I used in the 200 point team, I wanted to talk about why I went for them. I decided to go for a Teen team for this point’s value. It was not too small where I could can have many characters, but not too big. The characters I went for were:

Batman (Arkham Asylum) 64
Cosmic Boy (Legion of Super Heroes) 70
Dream Girl (Justice League) 50
Karate Kid (Crisis) 63
Klarion (Crisis) 76
Spider-Girl (Secret Invasion) 77
=400 points and three re-rolls.

 I went up against Adrian’s 400 points team. He was using an Avengers team with:

Invisible Girl (Exp Clobberin Time) 57 + Fantastic Four ATA 5 = 62
Iron Fist (Secret Invasion) 70
Spider-Girl (Secret Invasion) 77
Iron Man (Mutations and Monsters) 100
Quicksilver (Avengers) 49
Scarlet Witch (Avengers) 35
=393 points and three re-rolls.

This was a long fight as we could not hit each other. In fact we only manage to knock one character each. He took out my Karate Kid and I took out his Iron Man. As Iron Man cost more than Karate Kid, I won the round.

Round Five, 200 points. As 75% of my 200 point team will not be back until the next round, I have to build a new team. This was had to do as because I was work with my 500 and 600 points teams and I was ruling out any figure over 100 points which was all my heavy hitters on both teams.  Also Hawkeye was out of action so I could not go for a cheap Avengers team with him as the main attack piece.  The final team was:

Robot (Invincible) 92
Dark Beast (Mutations and Monsters) 69
Scarlet Witch (Avengers) 35
=196 points and no re-rolls.

I found I had to go for a non themed team due to points values of the characters. I was up against Darren’s 200 points team. He was using a Gotham City team with:

Hitman (Arkham Asylum) 61
Batman (Arkham Asylum) 64
Batman (Justice League) 75
=200 points and one re-roll.

It was a total white wash. My team was crap. I should have gone with Yellowjacket. Sadly Dark Beast has gone MIA so he is no longer around to use.

The last round of the week, Round Six, was 300 points. As my 300 point team was ok still I used them again.

Annihilus and the Fantastic Four
Beast (Mutations and Monsters) 73
Cyclops (Mutations and Monsters) 50
Jean Grey (Rook Universe) 31
Psylocke (Vet Xplosion) 29
Storm (Danger Room) 40
Wolverine (Fantastic Forces) 71
=294 points and three re-rolls.

I went up against Michel’s 300 points team. He went for a non themed team with:

Penance (Hammer of Thor) 58 + Thunderbolts 8 = 66
Annihilus (Secret Invasion) 127
Gravity (Secret Invasion) 75
Robin (Crisis) 35
=303 points and no re-rolls.

Yes I now know his team works out more than it should have been. I think he used the old points cost of Thunderbolts than the new one. But any way, I won that round only losing Psylocke and sadly she went MIA, but I MIA his Annihilus with Storm.

Again sadly both Michael and Adrian had have loses to their forces. I got second place this week, but I am sill in first place over all in the campaign by about 20 to 30 victory points with Darren closely behind me. My current status is:

My Force
Batman (Arkham Asylum) XP 0.

Next week round seven will be 400 points, round eight will be 600 points and four actions and lastly round nine will be 300 points. With the 400 points team I need to rework in a little as Karate Kid will be out of action for it. With the 600 points team I need to rework in a lot as Robot will be out of action for it and Dark Beast is no more. And with the 300 points team I need to rework in a little as Psylocke is no more. This comes to a part where I best explain two changes in the campaign rules that Darren did last week which I forgot to post. First is how you can spend your XP. Original it was 1 XP = 1 point which you could ever use to buy a feat for the character, to upgrade the character to a different version or to recruit another character to your build pool. However after the loses Adrian and Michael took last week Darren changed it to 1 XP = 1 point for feats or upgrade and 1 XP = 5 points for recruiting. This leads to the second change. The build pool cannot go over 2000 points, no matter what. However the MIA characters are not counted towards your 2000 point build pool, but you can still spend their XP. This means I have a 100 points gap to fill with a total of 80 XP (400 points) to recruit with. Who will I recruit? You have to wait until next week.

In this week's DreamClix I will be doing House of M Iron Man, Light Yagami/Kira from Death Note and Sasuke Uchiha from Naruto.

First off is House of M Iron Man. In House of M, Tony Stark is the owner of Stark Enterprises, a company given to him by his father. He is a winning contestant on 'Sapien Death Match', a reality TV fighting show which involves humans in power-armour battling each other. He lives in the shadow of his father, and has been developing a superior suit of armour to protect him. Iron Man earned the admiration of human and mutant alike, including Magneto himself, when he and a team of Sapien Death Match fighters stopped a terrorist plot to kill hundreds of mutants with 'gene bombs.' On a related note, his father Howard Stark is alive in this reality before he was killed by Magneto. He should have Running Shot, Range Combat Expert and Invulnerability to begin with and then dropping to Super Strength and Toughness at the end. Six to eight clicks of health with starting states of Movement 14 (that drops heavy), Attack 10, Defence 17, Damage 3 and range 8 with one target. He should not have any TA and the keywords Armour and Scientist and maybe Sapien Death Match fighter and Celebrity.

Next is Light Yagami from Death Note. The main character of Death Note, Light is an extremely intelligent, yet bored 17-year old student who is not satisfied with the current justice system. When he finds the Death Note, dropped in the human world by the shinigami Ryuk, (on purpose) he decides to use it to kill all criminals and earns the title Kira, taken with the pronunciation of Killer. His ultimate goal is to cleanse the world of evil to create a world without criminals and then reign over this new world as its "god." He should have a trait called “Death Note”, special abilities known as “Controlled Death” and “Justice Strikes Back” and the following powers Psychic Blast, Outwit and Probability Control.
Death Note: -2 to attack value and damage value for close-combat based attacks.”
Controlled Death: Light cam use mind control, however the target tacks damage equal to the damage value of Light after the action.”
Justice Strikes Back: Light has Super-Senses. If he success with his Super-Senses roll and he does not have two or more counters on him, he can make a free range combat action.”
He should how four or five clicks of health with starting states of Movement 8, Attack 10, Defence 16, Damage 3 and range 12 with three targets. He should not have any TA and the keywords Kira and teen.
Also LE version of him called Kira with Stealth (maybe a special that gives him outwit and stealth), the Mystic TA and maybe one click of extra health.

Lastly it is Sasuke Uchiha. Although he starts off as one of the protagonists, as the story progresses, he becomes one of the series' most dynamic major antagonists. Sasuke is one of the two remaining members of the Uchiha clan, a former member of Team Kakashi, a missing-ninja from Konohagakure, the leader of the former Taka, an associate of Akatsuki, and an international criminal. But let us stop back to the begging. Sasuke's early childhood, as told over the course of Naruto manga volume twenty-five, was spent not being able to catch up to his brother, Itachi Uchiha, a natural prodigy of the Uchiha clan whom Sasuke looked up to and admired. In an effort to win some recognition for himself, Sasuke trained diligently to win some of his parents' attention, though he was never able to surpass the milestones set in place by his brother, who would be the only one to acknowledge Sasuke's accomplishments. In time, Itachi began to distance himself from the clan and fell out of his family's confidence, which consequently began to look to Sasuke as the new future for the clan. Soon after Sasuke started to be accepted into his family, he returned home one day to find the streets littered with the corpses of the Uchiha clan. Upon rushing home, Sasuke found Itachi standing over his parents’ corpses. As Sasuke tried to flee, Itachi went on to explain that he had never loved his little brother. Claiming that Sasuke was not worth killing, Itachi encouraged him to get stronger by living a life of hate and anger towards him, with his sole purpose being to avenge the clan. Itachi left, and in the absence of a loving family Sasuke agreed to do as instructed, dedicating his life to killing Itachi. After the massacre, Sasuke is brought up pampered and without normal problems, and to believe that he was the best merely because he was an 'Uchiha'. As the set I am designing is based on the early arcs/start, this figure will be based on Sasuke during the Land of Waves Arc with him gaining his Sharingan eyes at the end of his dial, this will be a special ability called “Sharingan Eyes Awaken”.
Sharingan Eyes Awaken: Sasuke has Probability Control but during his turn he can only use it on his own dice rolls.”
He should also have the powers Range Combat Expert and Pulse Wave for his fire attacks, running attack, charge, stealth, Replacement Jutsu aka Super Senses and maybe toughness and willpower. He should how six clicks of health with starting states of Movement 10, Attack 10, Defence 17, Damage 1 or 2 and range 8 with three targets. He should have the Naruto TA and the keywords of Team Kakashi, Kid, Konohagakure, Ninja (generic) and Uchiha Clan.
 
Well that is it for this week’s Heroclix post.  Next week’s DreamClix I plan on doing House of H Johnny Storm, Rukia Kuchiki from Bleach without her Soul Reaper powers, Buluma from Dragon Ball and if I have the time I am planning on starting TransformersClix but I try to do low powered G1 characters. Maybe Cliffjumper and Runamuck. While until next time, enjoy.
