It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! No, It’s Superman and Superman!

Greetings WizKids Fans and Supporters!

Sometimes at a convention, you need a friend to save you from yourself.  Like telling you to take a break, or not to spend all your money on the first day, or teaming up with you in a game of HeroClix and saving you from defeat.  Our sixth and final 2012 HeroClix convention preview is Superman and Superman, who stepped in to save the day when a Crisis threatened their worlds.

The Superman and Superman dial brings the final issue of Infinite Crisis to your table top. When the Golden Age Superman, Kal-L, determines that he must work together with his Modern Age Superman, Kal-El, the end result is jaw-dropping action.

First, Doomsday is brought into the battle and together, these 2 powerhouses rush in and knock him out. Three clicks of Charge, Super Strength, Impervious, and a high damage will allow you to take on almost any bruiser one-on-one.

Next, the Supermen turned their attention to the out-of-control Superboy-Prime. Prime’s power level was dramatically increased thanks to his armor, so together, Kal-El and Kal-L pushed Prime through a red sun. This unique ability is represented in HeroClix with their special power, Through the Sun. Tear through your opponent’s team and determine which of your enemies will end up facing off against this Kryptonian duo!

Rushing through the sun exacted the ultimate price from the Golden Age Superman and weakened the Modern Age Superman, as well. Therefore, when we reach the last third of the dial, the surviving Kal-El, grief-stricken by his new comrade’s death, proceeds to ensure the universe’s safety with Prime’s defeat. For these clicks, the JSA symbol is lost and the figure possesses Earthbound/Neutralized, causing him to lose his Flight, Carry, Duo, and Indomitable abilities. Still, he does have Flurry and regains Impervious for these clicks.

Saving the best for last, is Superman and Superman’s trait, the intro-phrase known by every citizen of Metropolis – Look, Up In the Sky. These Supermen are more than just a combat-machine, they are protectors as well. Anytime a friendly character is being attacked, this figure can be repositioned and have the attack made on him. Don’t be fooled by the need to be within line of fire of the attacker – you can do that, even when the attacker is making a close combat attack. These Supermen will swoop in to save their comrades no matter how you attack them!

This figure will first be available at GenCon as a prize.  Tune in next week for more info on the tourneys and prize distribution at GenCon.
