Again, a figure that could've been so much better but just ended up being disappointing. I mean, he has the oh-so-hard-to-turn leaping sculpt, and yet not one click of Charge? I actually don't mind the low defense/damage, because it represents James just getting into the middle of things and tearing up wildly. But I think that adding Charge and some mid-dial Battle Fury would've conveyed that better.
I like the Impervious (representing adamantium's resilience). It means you can throw him against even the big boys while knowing that, even if Impervious fails, you're going to get a Flurry/BCF reward (or Regen if you were REALLY busted). The only problem is that Outwit reduces him to garbage a lot more than other figures, because he's got no defense values to fall back on. Where's the Battle Fury on this guy?

Once again, Vampirism make this one an entirely new fig. I mean, it helps to compensate somehow his low DV, and he gain Impervious (wich he has not on his REV)
So in my opinion he's cheaper and better than the VET (and only five points more than the EXP for 1 more click and Impervious on it as well as 11 AV)
But he lose his TA...wich can be a really good news (it is, for me) because even if his TA was good, his AV are good enough without, and now, he can be feated with Mercenary.
I just PRAY that he can use the fantastic four TA to have 19 DV. Can he ? Somebody ?
