Marvel Attacktix Spoilers: Pyro

Marvel Attacktix: Pyro #M1-5

Marvel Attacktix Pyro

MARVEL CLASS: Brotherhood
DEFENSE: Medium Base
SPECIAL POWER: Shootback (Brotherhood)
ATTACK TYPE: Shooter (Small Missile)
RARITY: Booster - Rare

Brett's Notes:
Pyro is an interesting choice for the set, and he lends himself well the the Attacktix Universe. Pyro has always kind of been a "grunt" for the team...go and set stuff on fire, whatever, pretty straight forward. I chose the Trooper Class to represent this basic fighter in the Brotherhood stable. His Shootback power is pure foundation for a Brotherhood team, ideally giving your Magneto, the biggest gun in the Brotherhood arsenal, an extra attack.

Joe's Notes:
Pyro is an excellent choice for the first well-known named Marvel character to be a Trooper. While Wicket drew some attention in the Star Wars line, Pyro seems to have more of a fan base after a few big screen appearances. The Classes are assigned based on their roles within their own team. So while Pyro may be more powerful than a Stormtrooper or a Wicket with a pointy stick, he is no more valuable to Magneto than a foot soldier. The over-sized flame thrower packs quite a punch, and his death will allow for more ranged attacks. As a 20-point small missile shooter, he makes up for his cost with a medium base. Even after more Marvel series are released, I think Pyro will be a staple in every Brotherhood team.
