Masked Hero Vapor, the Hero of the Water attribute, tries really hard to be good, but falls just short, in my opinion.  First, referring to yesterday, this Monster can only be Special Summoned by Mask Change, and not in any other way.  Stuff like that almost immediately kills cards, so we're looking for one hell of an effect here...what do we find?  Vapor cannot be destroyed by card effects.  Don't get me wrong, said effect IS actually decent enough, but only having 2400 attack (and 2000 defense) Vapor won't be winning you many games.

Alright, Vapor, you're the only good Masked Hero we've got, and the only way for us to summon you is by using Mask Change on Elemental Hero Ocean (or Bubbleman, if you're cool like that, or Absolute Zero if you're crazy). Despite being immune to destruction by card effects, 2400 ATK doesn't cut it these days. 2400 was the magic number back in the Reign of Monarchs, but these days it's 2500 (think: Stardust, Utopia).

At least you can summon him after an attack. If you want to be really pro, attack with a fusion, then use De-Fusion, then use this for an OTK. But for now, Vapor might not be the best Hero. If you've ever built a new-age Hero deck, you'll know you need to fit in a LOT of Fusions, Synchros AND Xyz's, and there really isn't any room for this guy until Mask Change gets more targets.

3.5/5
Art: Lame.
Fun Fact: Masked Heroes are based on the Kamen Riders.

Masked HERO Vapor

This is one of the new HERO Fusions, and it's quite impressive. Immunity to effect destruction is a huge plus in my book, and this card can help out generic HERO decks. 2400 Attack is solid, too, so it will put in work on the field. It is vulnerable to cards like Dimensional Prison, Compulsory Evacuation Device and Brionac, as well as being destroyed in battle, but considering you gave up an Elemental HERO Ocean, I'd say the trade-off is fair.

Traditonal: 3/5
Advanced: 3.5/5

                Alright, today we look at one of the cards that can only be brought out on the field by yesterday’s card, Masked HERO Vapor. Vapor has the amazing ability to not be destroyed by card effects. So he may safely curb stomp those pesky Rykos and Snow Man Eaters that you may be having issues with.  Also Vapor can get around Dark Hole, and other staple destroy cards. Unfortunately vapor is a bit hard to summon. Since you have to use a HERO with a water attribute to summon him, and you have to use Mask Change it makes it a bit tricky.

Traditional: 2/5

Masked Hero Vapor

As I said yesterday, I’m a fan of Heroes, but the Masked Heroes seem to be lacking. Masked Hero Vapor is a mediocre fusion that could be difficult to get over in a different format, but as of now, there are too many ways to get over it. 2400 attack isn’t that big of a deal these days and there are plenty of spells/traps that don’t destroy. A simple Compulsory Evacuation Device would get rid of Vapor easily. Again, as I said yesterday, Vapor is used alongside Absolute Zero, but unfortunately the combo seems rare and not worth it. Vapor is cool, but I doubt he’ll be making an impact in Hero decks any time soon.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2.5/5
