Thank goodness. This is the third con exclusive revealed that I can pass on. Apocalypse will be on my wants list, but the BatB J'onn is all I'll ever need.
Man...! Me, I've wanted to play a "My Favorite Martian" team of all Martians for a while. Had finally got them all and was only waiting for a big enough game to get them all on. Now...darn it.

Visit my blog, Heroclixin'! Or check out my trade thread. Molly Hayes' KO list: HoT Ultron, HoT Thor, SI Iron Man, AV Wonder Man, SI Sentry, LE Diana Prince, R IC Ultron, Pretty Boy, CW Kang.
Also, a nice version of Martian Manhunter. Not sure why it's a convention exclusive though, maybe because of the costume? Overall the dial is solid, but it seems like it would have been fine to just give him Shape Change as a trait.
Shape Change as a trait would make it immune to Outwit. That's likely the only reason they went full dial of the power rather than the Trait route.
Even if I don't manage to score one at Gen Con, I will probably make whatever trades I need to for one of these. Between the economical dial and the keywords (including the ATA options), I would play the heck out of this piece.
Color me unimpressed. I know it's a rookie and only 140 points, but I feel like the lack of opening move-and-attack, measly 6 range, and mediocre defense numbers make him a bit too weak. He'll be hard to kill, but not too hard to base and shut down.
Eh he's not bad. Nothing I care much about if I ever have or not. Doesn't look like Gencon is going to happen for me this year, as I won't be in Indiana by then, and prob can't make it back. But next year!
I'm pretty happy that none of the con LE's are anything I really want so far. Wouldn't mind Dr Fate, but that's about it.
At first look, I really wanted him. I then came back to earth (pun intended, lame or not) and realized that if I must choose a Con-Ex, it's Punisher.
The Martian Manhunter is good here, that's true, and if he didn't have JLI keyword it would be pretty much an easy pass for me, but it's tough to build around the BatB Cookie Hunter in under 500 points, and this one would remedy that and the one other issue the Cookie Hunter has (one keyword.)
Between the Brightest Day version and the BatB version of the guy, I'm satisfied.
Now about getting me that Punisher...
