• DC Starter Set Characters & Their Dice!

    If you didn't read the big DC spoiler post, well, what's wrong with you?! Get on that! We know quite a lot now about what the set will feature - every character and all of the super rares. But we have some more today thanks to the promo images from that same Game Trade Magazine post.

    We can put together every character in the starter set and for a majority of them, all of their die stats.

    None of this is too difficult to suss out, but it may require the reading glasses for some.

    The starter goes with a few obvious fan favorites and provides mostly heroes with a couple of villains.


    Spoilers after the jump, and commentary WAY at the bottom!

    The format will be Fielding Cost - Attack Stat - Defense Stat. Bursts are noted where applicable. Energy is noted where known.

    The starter makes sense as a whole.

    You needto include the big three - Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman - in this set for all to get. They're a draw for many. They nailed that. They also were smart to include Green Arrow given the success of the show Arrow right now - a show that I, too, love. I feel like Martian Manhunter is a closet favorite of many, and so he's a solid include.

    I like Zatanna, but hope she wasn't included for fan service. She regularly tops lists of most attractive comic book characters.

    Darkseid is a VERY fitting villain to include given that he is just the sort of big bad that the Justice League would need to come together to defeat.

    I also like using Deathstroke. He works on a few levels as a nemesis for both Green Arrow as well as Batman. He's known after the very successful Season Two run of Arrow, which set him up to be formidable indeed.
