Superman (Veteran)

Miniature text:

Rocketed to Earth by his scientist parents, baby Kal-El was found by Jonathan and Martha Kent. Named Clark Kent, he was raised to use his special powers for truth, justice and the American way. The most powerful of heroes, Superman can fly, has super-strength, heat vision and is invulnerable to almost everything except for magic and Kryptonite: a radioactive fragment of his home planet of Krypton. Superman lives in Metropolis where he works as a mild-mannered reporter with his wife Lois Lane. Along with his allies Batman and the Justice League, he fights a never-ending battle against villains Lex Luthor, Brainiac, and Bizarro.

Batman, Robin (Starter), Supergirl, Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, Perry White, JLA

General description:
Ah superman himself ... Either you hate him or you love him. there isn't really any in between.You love him if you have him you hate him if your opponet has it.

This character is most useful as a main attacker in games 400 pts. or more because of his huge cost most likely if he is destroyed there goes your team on the other hand, if you use him correctly he can be a huge help to your team

Strategies and game play:
The main strategies are to have characters like R destiny
v green arrow with trickshot
How can I forget the new cheese of fortitude and repulsor shield
it definatly is a good thing that the combo costs 301 pts . and can not be used in a 300 point game

Combos with other miniatures:
Minitures that come to mind are E batman from the starter, any of the raven figures from icons R destiny V green arrow r jean grey

Ways to counteract it:
Outwit and Physic blast are major problems to this character so one of the best figures to use against it is the V darkseid who at 187 points leave a lot to be worried about especiaaly when you can team him with so may other characters

High damage
hypersonic speed
11 clicks of life
very powerful damage never drops below 3
superstrength the whole dial
low ending attack 7
hypersonic only 3 upfront clicks
Very weak to outwit
251 points nearly impossible to play competitivly in a 300 point game

Overall rating:
on an overall rating I give it a 8/10

It would be interesting to try him in a modern game to see how he performs.

I'd do that, but not without Fortitude. This guy, like all of the Supes, just waits to let me down on dice rolls too...

I don't think that he aged very well after first coming out. The only thing that I could see as a saving grace for him is the creation of resource dials and the insanity that comes with them. Golden Age 300 points just got insane again.
