There are literally thousands of HeroClix figures out there, yet it always amazes me the small number of figures that players put on a pedestal. Why? Is it the sculpt? The rarity? The supposedly “awesome” dial? I can’t say I really know for sure. But what I do know is that these following five figures are highly overrated, and I wish people would stop pretending that they’re so great (they’re really not). Don't get me wrong, these figures aren't bad by any means... but you're simply not going to "automatically win" with guys as people seem to claim.
This is all I get for 210 points? He’s certainly frontloaded, but that always makes it bad for the long game. He won’t be able to stand a balanced team, that’s for sure, and his maneuverability is severely lacking. Throw out a couple low point tie-up figures and Darkseid is looking pretty vulnerable. I’d take the 200 point MAN OF STEEL instead, and save 10 points. Heck, the 181 point Icons Vet Darkseid isn’t looking too bad!
Oh please. People were gushing over this overrated 186-point Viking because of the 5 damage and long range. So what? He’s got some early maneuverability and high attack values, but have you seen that stinker of a defense? 16 to 12 in sixty seconds (Nicholas Cage would be so proud). It’s certainly nice that he has the Ultimates TA and that big 10 range, but he’s just a lame beat-stick. No thanks, I’ll save 105 points and take the Secret Invasion Thor Girl instead (Heck, at 81 points, I’ll take two Thor Girls, leaving me 24 points left over for some feats).
