Salde File: The Flash Heroclix StrategyIt 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. 

The Upside
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.

continued below...



The flash Heroclix Dial

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.

@ Tony, I believe so.

Why no 12 clix of Xmas this year? I always looked so forward to that.

Does the "Vibrate Through Walls" trait's abilities stack? As in, you can use ALL of the listed abilities (Improved Movement, Flurry, deal 1 damage) and get the +1 to his defense if you have at least 4 Speed tokens on his card?

Wally is 1 point less than the Ultimate Abomination so those two should make for a good duel.

As always, love the article. I'm more of a Marvel fanboy, but I must admit I have very much enjoyed this set. I've liked Flash in the past, but now with the TV series I'm getting more interested. Thanks again for the write up.

Nicely done. Perhaps a contrast of the various Flashes or Speedsters or versions of Wally would make a cool article.

Great article!
Another character I would suggest is Cobalt Blue to thwart the Flash.
But, nonetheless brilliant article!
