Like many of the other figures from this set, this version of Super Skrull is ranked a rookie. It is safe to assume the main set will offer a more powerful take on the character with a higher point cost. At 100 points however, this version provides a more economical option for players to use.
Super Skrull has two keywords for theme team building; Skrull & Warrior. If nothing else, at least he has both a generic and non generic option for us to work with.
Super Skull’s combat values aren’t terrible, they just aren’t spectacular either. His combat values start out just fine, but as he takes damage he slowly loses his potency. Super Skrull’s combat values include a range of (6) with a single targeting bolt, and 6 clix of life. Ok, so his values are kind of average. Let’s see what his powers can do for him.
Super Skrull comes to the battle map equipped with two special powers. The first is called Invisible Shields and Rock Skin. This special power allows you to choose between Energy Shield/Deflection, Stealth or Toughness at the end of your turn. Options are always good and I’m sure some might feel that choosing between Energy Shield Deflection and Stealth is a no brainer. Nevertheless, when you consider there are quite a few characters out there that can ignore the effects of stealth, having the option to choose Energy Shield Deflection is not such a bad thing.
Toughness is always a good choice and probably the best choice if you are in close combat. The greatest thing about this power is that you choose at “the end” of your turn. This allows you to play your turn out and see what the opposition can throw at you before you make your choice.
His second special power is called Rock Fists and Elastic Arms. This Special power allows Super Skrull to use Close Combat Expert, but with a twist. He can target characters up to 3 spaces away and still benefit from Close Combat Expert for added damage! The catch is he has to be able to draw a line of fire to the target.
