In other zany news, there are four (!) new previews available of the forthcoming DC Heroclix set, Crisis.
Psimon, Forerunner, and Klarion don't float my boat; nice dials, but the characters don't interest me.
But Mercury of the Metal Man? Hot liquid dang at room temperature!Best part? He's only 25 points! And a fairly useful 25 points, at that...
Leap/Climb, Smoke Cloud, Flurry, Shape Change. He sort of ... Robinesque.
Now I wonder whether the rest of the Metal Men will each be 25 points or a similarly low number, resulting in easy composed 100/200 point Metal Men teams.
They need a Doc Magnus figure with some Outwit, some Leadership, and lots of a special power, say, "REPAIR", that grants him Support for figures with the Metal Men keyword (or even the Robot keyword, since he seems to be the go-to guy for robot repair).
What are you expecting now from the other Metal Men? Will Gold and Platinum have Elasticity? Will Lead have Defend or Barrier? Will Iron have Toughness? Will Tin have... okay, what the heck would Tin have?
