Okay, it's high time I did this, being the Bi-Beast guy. My friend NicMonsteR made me a really cool Bi-Beast sculpt mod out of one of those Handful of Heroes figures, and I'm generally using that one. I'll keep a separate list for LE Skull-Brother KOs, but for now, I'm going Bi-Beast.
I ran him today alongside Man-Beast, Stranger and High Evolutionary, plus an E U-Man for Man-Beast MM fodder. He got wiped in the first game, one-shot KOed Ronan The Accuser in the second, and was one click away from KOing IH Wolverine in the third, but Man Beast had to take the final shot there to prevent regen.
9 Games, 8 KO.
Bi-Beast KO List:
Ronan The Accuser (Annihilators FF)
Black Lantern Wonder Woman
JL Lex Luthor
This is not likely to be as impressive as the Bane KO list. But it's MINE. And all my Skull-Brothers everywhere. I'll edit the first post with running tallies as I go. Hopefully I'll get to play him again later tonight.

Bi-Beast saw action again today, finally. I wanted to try out the Leader with the Humanoids, so...
The Leader with Contingency Plan
Bi-Beast with Fortitude
I had it all lined up well. Leader outwitted WOL Sinestro's Impervious, jacked up Bibby's attack +1, and he was swinging with the Mainframe for another +1 to 13, and he slams it on home. YES VICTORY!
Wait, theme prob with that fool Larfleeze over there. WHIFF.
Sinestro then wastes Bibby with Sharpshooter Psychic Blast horsepucky. My small glimmer of revenge was that Sinestro never really moved from that spot for the rest of the game, as a Humanoid with Plasticity tied him down and made him useless with his Shape Change rolls, too, while plinking away at him.
The Stranger (he had a menagerie that included Bi-Beast)
High Evolutionary (he created Man-Beast)
Man-Beast (he partnered with Bi-Beast against Thor)
Bi-Beast WITH THE FULL GAUNTLET.
One friend played an Taskmaster Initiative team with Deadpool and Bob along for the ride.
Another friend played Ziran The Tester. Yikes.
Thankfully, we passed all but one test, and I didn't take any damage from the initial round. We played on the Stark Industries indoor map where there are three separate starting areas, and not a lot of places for Ziran to move. I jumped Man-Beast out into Stealth to take potshots at Ziran while he was trying to nerf Deadpool, and MAN-BEAST ROLLED LIKE A CHAMP. He rolled a lot of high business and managed to plink him for one here and there while I geared up Bibby's gauntlet. I fired the Stranger out to try to single-target pulse wave his scrubby butt, but to no avail. He missed every time and got killed quickly. So I had Bibby pee-pee dancing a bit behind walls, Mind-Gem Probbing Man-Beast on the rare occasion he needed it, while moving High E into position to help TK Bibby when he finally got to 2.
Finally landed a hit with a heavy object to give Ziran 5 damage, and rolled one last time. Landed right on 3.
BI-BEAST HAS ATTAINED ULTIMATE GODHOOD.
Trouble is, he still can't fly or shoot anything beyond a 2 range. Forgot that once and got Bibby stuck in hindering when I was gearing up for a big move. You'd think one of those gems would grant flight. However, I managed to have enough juice to keep mostly protected, positioning the limping High E in places to prevent Ziran from placing himself to get a clear shot. Started pounding on him and got him down to his LAST CLICK, before he colossal pushed to KO himself. ROBBING ME OF PUTTING ZIRAN THE TESTER ON MY KO LIST.
But then, just turned around and mopped up the other guy's squad, so I could finally add some names at least.
I may only play the gauntlet on Bi-Beast from now on.
Ran Bibby in 2 games today. No gauntlet this time, which makes things much tougher.
It was a 0 Range No HSS game - both of them were.
My team was Hulk Enemies - first game was
Second game, I swapped out Ironclad for Miek and the Crimson Gem, which proved useless. I wanted to give Bi-Beast a bump, but no avail.
First game was against a batch of Marvel/DC 10 guys and some other hodge-podge of Marvel and LOTR, including that big Olog-Hai, whose trample power is lots of fun. Bi-Beast's first attack was chucking a dumpster at The Witch King of Angmar after Abomination softened him up, but it wasn't enough to kill him. Blonsky finished the job, though. Eventually, he ran in alongside Maestro into a huge clusterfudge to tie down Black Lantern Wonder Woman, and Red King came in handy for helping to reposition Bibby when he needed it. After some good softenings up, Bibby was able to land the KO shot on Dead Diana, and I managed to win the game with some satisfying moments like Red King rolling huge on blades to one-shot Nightwing.
Second time out, wasn't so lucky. Got caught in crossfire early, as people realized now how awesome Red King is in a 0 range format, but he still got to one-shot John Jones. And Maestro ain't bad, neither, but he eventually fell to flurry and exploitness. Bibby didn't roll that well in this one, but I got a Force Blast of Spite on Skrull Cap before he went down.
The tally is updated, Skull-Brothers. I can't wait to play him with the Utility Belt.
500 point six-player Battle Royal today, test-driving the new rules - so much so that every other tactic was banned for the day. Figures and figures only.
It helped that Thor's Mighty Chariot sucked up some attention from two other teams, and then the two left over once that went down dealt with themselves for most of the game. I was dealing with a new NOWHERE-y kind of team and an X-Force team. Mandarin with the new rules is pretty #####in', although the one time I got a chance to pull off an EE/FB combo, I whiffed.
Still, Bibby did some damage, throwing objects at Wonder Girl and pounding Warpath. He had to chase Solstice around a bit before smacking her down, and Thorin Oakenshield came once I'd finished off the two teams I was fighting, and the last remnants of the other crew came limping over. Bi-Beast hit him big, but he didn't die, so I waited and cleared and used Mandarin's TK to make sure Bi-Beast could finish the job.
Okay, so I did BAT-BI-BEAST, by putting the Utility Belt on him with the Cowl. Threw him on an A.I.M. team and claimed he was their latest project.
His friends were:
MODOOK + Intelligencia
Extremis Mercenary (who just rocked the house)
AIM Agent x4
Batroc The Leaper
MODOK got destroyed immediately in the four-way fight, so I got a bit precious with Bi-Beast, although I managed to get off a pair of solid Bi-Beastarang shots from his perch in stealth on a rooftop (sadly, I didn't pack the Rebreather and of course we played on the Starro water map, which would've made it a VERY different Bat-Bi-Beast game). It wasn't until the end came down, when Lex Luthor rocking the Secret Six ATA got in BatBibby's face, looking to maybe pulse wave to death and then blow up for more damage. BatBibby hit first and knocked him cold.
Had a brief chance to add FF Starter Dr. Doom to the list, but Killian lost his perplex, and thus I couldn't double-pump Bibby's range to take a final shot at him.
