Lex Luthor Joins A Cast Of Villains For Knight Model’s DC Game

December 14, 2016 by brennon

We saw that Batman & Robin were released yesterday from Knight Models and now joining them we have a cast of villains led by the deadly Lex Luthor in his battle armour.

I have to admit that I didn’t know Lex Luthor had this awesome suit of armour until I’d played Injustice: Gods Among Us. It is rather epic though and it does turn Lex Luthor into an intelligent and now brutal fighting force to be reckoned with.

Other villains draw power from different sources like Black Adam and Reaper.

Black Adam

Black Adam is the nemesis of Shazam within the DC world and, if I remember rightly, was going to be played by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, until the project was shelved. I reckon he’d be awesome for it!

Reaper has been multiple characters throughout his period in DC and fights with two deadly scythes.

The design of the character also inspired the creation of The Phantasm, a fantastic character brought to life in the Batman Animated Series.

Henchmen

Following on from these main characters we also have some henchmen fighting alongside both heroes and villains. First up is Aaron Cash & Quick Response Team.

As you might imagine they could well be a useful force to keep the bad guys at bay before you head into the fighting and take down their master.

Mr Freeze has some chilly looking fellows on his side too, now available as a separate set.

Mr Freeze's Thug Set #1

The design is very cool for these Thugs, drawing on the look from the Arkham series of video games. It does seem like a good idea to have a snow shovel when Mr Freeze is around and it doubles up as a weapon too!

What do you think of the other releases and which is your favourite?
