General description:
Ok, there is a lot anyone can say about this fig. If you're the one using him he is the greatest thing in the world. If you are going against him then you hate him with a passion so bright and powerful it rivals a red giant star.

Uses:
This fig is meant for one thing and one thing only, taking out smaller point figs, unless he has armor penetration, in which case I've seen him take out a Superman using Fortitude and Repulsor Shield. Given the right Feats he can be one of the beastliest figs in the game.

Strategies and game play:
See uses, but mainly you run up, you punch, you run away. Hard concept, I know.

Combos with other miniatures:
Anything with outwit or perplex. Other than that a Brute fig like Ulik(HoT) or a Hulk fig helps out.

Ways to counteract it:
Well the flash tops out with, as per usual, a two on damage. Also if you hit him once for about 3 damage he's about as good as useless(Honestly who uses Quake with the Flash?). To hit him you need someone with a good attack because a 20 on defense he is a defensive power house.

Strengths/Pros:
He's fast! Hyper Sonic with a movement value of 15 few figs can keep up with him(most are named Flash) plus he flies so he ignores hindering terrain and characters on movement. Plus it's hard to hit him so that helps. Plus for his stats and powers 150pts. is minor.

Weaknesses/Cons:
LOW DAMAGE! Not to mention the lack of range, though with a movement of 15 that doesn't matter as much.

Artwork and aesthetics:
The actual fig is cool, he looks great for the time he was made and he fits the look he's supposed to.

Overall rating:
I give the KC Flash a.... 8.5 outta 10.

Don't forget you will probably want to include a TK're to get past that KC ability. It's hard enough to hit him without having to worry if you will be able to get next to him.

This figure was the 'Eldorado' of its day (along with KC GL) as nearly every person I knew was after him like fleas on a hound, lol. (I was one of those fleas I admit...) To my everlasting shame, I got into full collecting of Heroclix the set right after Legacy, leaving me out in the cold for most of these figures until the aftermarket trading venue. This of course left me holding the bag, and holding out my wallet, for a great deal of the high value figs in that set. This guy was no exception. (I believe I paid between $35 and $40 for him when I did get him.) To top it all off there is also a promo version of him, Purple Ring, which is even harder to get a hold of, and I had to have both, greedy me...

Your write up hits it right on the head as far as his worth. With a few Feats this guy can rule the board, though he does need a few support pieces to make the grade. With his high speed he is all over the map and with his numbers across the board he is brutal. He is still one of my favorite figures to this day and if a chance to run him in a non-cheesy way presents itself I usually take it.

if he had a defense he would be worth the $ he is.
