Galactic Gardians

Welcome back to another Heroclix World Sneak Peak. Many players have been looking forward to a new cosmic based set for a while now, and it looks like they are getting their wish with the “Galactic Guardians” set.

This week we have another preview from the upcoming Gravity Feed set featuring the Lord of Latveria, Dr. Victor Von Doom. (What exactly is he a Dr. of anyway?)  He is #205 in the upcoming gravity feed set.

(Click to see full Doom Dial)

It looks like the Gravity Feed set offers a quality version of Dr. Doom. Coming in at 139 points, this rookie version of Dr. Doom packs a solid punch while leaving room for good support options for your team.   

Keywords:
Doom is equipped with appropriate Keywords for theme building including; Armor, Mystical, Ruler and Scientist.   

Combat Values

The Doc’s combat values are very solid for his cost. His attack, defense and damage values are very consistent throughout his dial. His speed values are not terrible, just not as impressive as his others stats. He also has a range value of (8) and (2) targeting bolts. Not bad for a rookie dial.

Traits
Dr. Doom features a trait named “Hated Rivals.” This trait modifies Doom’s attack value +1, when targeting characters that have the Fantastic Four keyword, or Team ability. (This feels very appropriate, if you ask me.)

Special Powers
This Doom has a single special power called “Force-Shielded Armor.” It allows Doom to use Energy Shield/Deflection and Invulnerability in concert. Effectively raising Victor’s Defense to a 19 from range combat while reducing damage taken by (2). The power also states that when an opposing character makes a close combat attack and misses, they get knocked back equal to their damage value. (Doom demands his personal space!) 

Minions of Doom TAPowers & Abilities

Doom opens with two powers; Quake and Ranged Combat Expert. No wonder he wants his space, he deals more damage with ranged combat attacks. His next set of powers includes: Pulse Wave and Invulnerability. Later, Doom gains Force Blast (again with the “me time”), Penetrating/Psychic Blast and Toughness are also present on his dial, with Energy Explosion as a late addition on his final clix. Doom has the Minion of Doom team ability for utilizing other friendly character’s team abilities. Doom also has the Flight and Indomitable abilities. Indomitable is what really makes his dial work, allowing Doom to take actions consecutively without suffering pushing damage.

Your Comments:
Doom - As one of my favorite Villians I was depressed with this version. The only redeeming features are the ability Hated Rivals and the power Force-Shielded Armor and Adominal. Not at all thrilled at the no Runshot and week range. The adominal is a nice touch but not enought to make it worth his points aven though he is a rookie level. 1 click of running shot would have made this a playable Doom for the points. Other Dooms are way better. Not sure on the points but not sure how much better this Doom is over the Clobbering Time EXP version

ALso his belt is way too big

Well it's official: I'm skipping the gravity feed. I'm slightly disappointed, but my wallet's relieved. This Doom's as lame as the Hulks in the last two sets

Posted by: Licensedhero on 2/17/2012 7:33:36 PM
Where is doom's great range?! Doom has never been one to sit still and fight, where is Doom's running shot?! And most importantly, where is representation of Doom's superior intellect and skill in the mystical arts?! Doom is not overly impressed... this makes for a... passable Doom... but ONLY passable

@ Scratchy: I quite like this placement of powers. Sit back sniping with RCE and super high defence thanks to the SP. If anyone bases you they will either knock themselvers back with a missed attack or you can use your indomitable and quake them away. Unless your opponent has charge or HSS you'll be pretty tough to hit. Outwit would make him virtually untouchable IMO and way over the current nice cheap 139pts

Another powerhouse piece for the scientist contingent! How the heck that keyword seems to get all the best figures is beyond me.

As for Doom I think he a very good piece for 139 pts. Indominatable allows him to make use of his high AV and potential 5 clicks of damage at ranged while simultaneously very hard to injure at range thanks to his SP. Just having the scientist keyword & Minion of Doom TA combo makes this guy a beast considering who you can field with him (All Star Supes + GSX Professor X at 500 pts... just the thought of it makes my skin crawl!)

Great figure. This micro-set is shaping up to be the best yet.

Cannot wait for April.

Not sure how hatred gives him +1 to attack. Hatred should allow people to Multiattack instead (with -1 attack instead of -1 damage like in Warhammer games).

Posted by: Kragnorak on 2/9/2012 11:11:04 AM
quite a powerful package for 139 points!... nonetheless, i find that fitting for Dr Doom, one of Marvel's marquee villains...

Posted by: MikeInMKE on 2/9/2012 10:55:13 AM
One of the best Dooms for the cost. Will def have to use him.

Posted by: Japete61 on 2/9/2012 9:28:05 AM
I definitely like the figure. Quake seems sort of out of place though. That defensive power is really going to help him out. For 139 points he could be a real terror. I really hope they give the main set one the Intelligencia keyword. I could always use some of those!

Posted by: Grategy on 2/9/2012 9:07:21 AM
Sell it or trade it! The only thing it has going for him is Team ability, his trait and his def. power. Up front is nice stats but crap powers! Doom is smart where is the outwit? Yes he gets psyhic blast but that power and "quake" should be swapped on the dial! THEN you will have a doom to call DOOM! THIS IS A DOOM BOT! He is a poooosser!
