It may have taken quite a while, but the fastest man alive has finally received his due. There are several versions of the scarlet speedster in this set, but for this article the subject is the Flash I grew up reading, Wally West.
Arguably the best Flash in the set, he packs quite a punch even before gaining additional abilities from speed tokens.
This dial captures what you would anticipate from a character named the Flash and so much more. The expected Hypersonic Speed and Super Senses are of course present, but some interesting and frankly unexpected powers like Precision Strike, Poison and Probability Control are make him stand out. Oh, and he’s Indomitable to boot.
The addition of the Speed Force mechanic in this set is the most comic accurate and balanced new element I’ve seen introduced in a while. As the game progresses the speedsters will tap the Speed force to ramp up their abilities in unique ways. In Wally’s case, he makes use of all those cool vibration powers the more speed tokens he gets (no wonder the ladies like him).
All the proper keywords make theme team building with this Flash a snap. Better than average combat values complemented by his powers and abilities allows Flash to damage invulnerable and evasive targets alike. When he gains those speed tokens he becomes better defensively and gains a lot more mobility. Bottom line: he’s going to be difficult to pin down the longer he’s in play.
