View Full Version : Anybody unhappy w/ Iron Man's card?
June 20th, 2008, 10:17 PM
Maybe I'm biased, as my favorite superhero is Iron Man, but was anyone else rather disapointed with iron man's abilities?:cry: One smartbomb move and I'd be happy. Anyway, I'm remaking Tony Stark's iron awesomeness, and was wondering if anyone had any unfulfilled ideas or suggestions?

He should also have an Alcoholic negative ability so if you roll a 19 or 20 he is too drunk to fight.

:lol: And his "arrogance" prohibits him from attacking squads.

Not to mention "Dazzling lights" If it's a sunny day, all units may not attack him because his armor shines too much.:lol:

The same could be said for any of the Supers really. They just couldn't fit everything onto one little card. Spidey has always been a big favorite of mine, and yeah I would like to see and ability that keeps him from dying in some way (seeing how he's always pounded into the dirt, more than he pounds back), but I think they rounded him off well. I think they did the same for all of them.

I think of all the super heroes I was least impressed with Iron Man. Not to say I don't like him, but some Repulsar Rays would have been fun.

Hulk got off okay, though...:|
If Iron Man touches water, move is decreased by 2.:)

I always use Hasbro's first draft of him, with Flying, Double Attack, Super-Strength and DW 9000's Explosion Special Attack.

I think the issue with Iron Man is he has the least flavor. All of the other fliers have one "cool" power in addition, while Iron Man has double attack. While it's a highly effective and useful power, it's not the most fun or "comic-booky". Dr. Doom can mind exchange, Cap can throw his shield and counterstrike, Red Skull can use his dust of death, Hulk gets angry, Abomination is also on the dull side but has an area effect attack at least, Thanos can be rejected by death, Silver Surfer can use hyper speed and has cosmic blasts, Spider-Man and Venom can both dodge attacks with spider senses and attack with webs, while Iron Man with his technologically advanced suit and huge arsenal can ... attack. Twice.
So I can see why people were hoping for just a little bit more flavor. But, I love him anyway.

If you use knockback, you can give his attacks double the usual knockback points to simulate the repulsor rays.
Check out the customs A-Z section, there are a BUNCH of different Iron Man cards/armors there.
