DC Dice Masters: Green Arrow and The Flash Review: The Atom, Static, Wonder Girl

In September, the latest DC Dice Masters set, DC Dice Masters: Green Arrow and The Flash will be released. Wizkids hooked us up with ten booster packs and after an unboxing video, I’m now going over groupings of the cards to discuss their playability and how they stack up to previous versions of the characters.

Up next, the common The Atom, Static, and Wonder Girl!

DC Dice Masters The Flash Green Arrow Atom Static Wonder Girl

The Atom: Matter Compression (uncommon)

Team: Titans

Purchase: 4 FIST

Die – Fist / Fist & Fist / Fist & Fist

Level: 0 1 1 / 1 4 4 / 1 5 5

Character Previous Set: War of Light and Justice League

While The Atom is active, whenever you could use a Global Ability you may spin down one of your The Atom dice to level 1 to draw 2 dice, put one into your Used Pile and the other into your Prep Area.

Thoughts: I love this card and die. It uses a mechanic we’ve seen in previous version of the character, spinning the die down. It’s relatively cheap to purchase and cheap to field. The ability to spin it down and draw dice? Hells yes. This game is about getting dice and anything to help with that helps. Find ways to spin the die up during turns and you’ve got a cool way to move through your bag.

 

Static: Taser Punch (rare)

Team: Titans

Purchase: 4 BOLT

Die – Bolt / Bolt and Bolt / Bolt and Bolt

Level: 0 2 1 / 0 3 2 / 1 4 3

Character Previous Set: None

While Static is active, whenever your opponent rolls 2 or more dice at once, KO target Sidekick unless your opponent takes 1 damage.

Thoughts: It’s Static’s debut in Dice Masters! The card’s ability is an interesting one. It can help clear out Sidekicks which may be helpful, but since it’s a KO, you’re giving them a die to use the next turn. For me, the fielding is the best part of the card, a 0 cost 3A/2D is a solid cheap character in the field.

 

Wonder Girl: Are’s Champion (uncommon)

Team: Titans

Purchase: 3 FIST

Die – Fist / Fist and Fist / Fist and Fist

Level: 0 2 2 / 1 3 2 / 1 3 3

Character Previous Set: War of Light

If you have an active Titan character, Wonder Girl costs 1 to purchase. You may only purchase 1 Wonder Girl die this way each turn.

Thoughts: Cheap to purchase, cheap to field? This card is a solid one for Titan teams allowing you to get her out quickly and get a die out to absorb some damage or do an attack. I’m digging the card and if you use this version or a previous set version will be determined by the rest of your team.

 

Final thoughts: Three solid additions to Titan teams. These three are so interesting, I really want to see what their other versions are like. Each is useful in their own way and each adds to the Titans which need to be expanded as a team option.

Brandon Routh Joins the Cast of Arrow

Brandon-RouthDeadline is reporting that Brandon Routh will join the cast of Arrow as this season’s recurring guest star. He’ll play Ray Palmer, who you might know as his secret identity, the Atom. Routh will be in 14 episodes. Palmer will be the new owner of Queen Consolidated.

This is the second DC Comics property for Routh, as he played Superman in Bryan Singer’s 2006 Superman Returns. This is now the fourth “comic book” property for Routh, on top of Superman, he appeared in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, and Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, both of which were based on comic books.

Palmer debuted in 1961 in Showcase #34 by National Comics. He was an updated version of the company’s 1940s Golden Age Atom, Al Pratt. Though the specifics have changed as far as his role in the DC universe, Palmer is a scientist who is able to reduce objects size, including himself.

This isn’t the first appearance of the character on television. He has appeared on numerous episodes of various cartoons based on DC comics, but he also had a live action stint in the Justice League of America television movie where he was played by John Kassir who is most known as the voice of The Crypt Keeper on the Tales from the Crypt television series.
