The Guardian brings relative low cost Close Combat to the Superman Ally faction. His defense is bolstered due to Energy Shield/ Deflection, and he has the option of Charging into combat, or using Close Combat Expert to soften up foes until the big guns arrive to save the day! Outwit simulates, Herper's experience and luck in surviving against super-powered foes, and he can even use it to ferret out Bat-Man Allies! However, when you see Outwit on the dial, beware, as the Guardian is not long for the battlefield.
Design: Thanks to checkeredman for the inspiration.
The Guardian is basically Captain America (I'm guessing Cap was Jack Kirby's favorite, as he basically remade the character everywhere he went. And why not? Cap is the ginchiest!). I wanted to put him on Team Superman, but he doesn't have a ranged attack, which would make him kinda useless against Bat-Team and Stealth. He is a close combatant. So why is he a Superman Ally? Because at the end of his dial, he has Outwit, a first for Superman Ally. He can see any hindering terrain figures, and thus use Outwit to turn off the offending figures abilites, but not for long.
