It’s the “Twilight of the Gods” as HeroClix brings the mythic action of Marvel Comics’ successful Fear Itself storyline event to the tabletop with six exciting monthly events! Will players align themselves with “The Worthy”, or will they instead fight alongside “The Mighty”? Battle it out, collect the eight Hammers of The Worthy, and fight your way to the God of Fear himself, the Serpent in Month Six!

Marvel HeroClix: Fear Itself is a six-month Storyline Organized Play event that will energize the player community and inspire new players to join the fight against the forces of the evil Serpent God of Fear!

In addition to highly desirable competitive prizes exclusive to this Organized Play program, each month participating players can add to their very own collection of the Hammers of The Worthy! Along with the Book of the Skull resource dial, the Hammers of The Worthy bring all of the sinister power of the Serpent’s heralds to HeroClix!

Program Overview

The Fear Itself OP series continues our aggressive Storyline program and features ALL NEW and UNIQUE content based upon the incredible Marvel Comics’ Fear Itself story arc.

Marvel HeroClix: Fear Itself revolves around the dreaded return of Odin’s brother and true King of Asgard, Cul Borson. Cul Borson is the Norse God of Fear and fabled Serpent of Asgardian prophecy and he has returned from exile seeking to increase his power by intensifying the amount of fear around the world. To this end, Cul dispatches eight mystical hammers (each as powerful as Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir!) to be discovered by The Worthy, transformed villains and heroes, who will herald Cul Borson’s rise to power!

In Month One, players will receive their Book of the Skull resource dial and the first of many Hammers of the Worthy special objects to enhance and customize their Book of the Skull resource dial with.

Each month thereafter, players will be awarded new Hammer participation prizes. Each Hammer of the Worthy can be played one of two ways; it can be used as a 3D special object in the game or you can use at as part of the Book of the Skull resource dial by placing it on the Book of the Skull sculpt.

And just like our previous Storyline Organized Play events, each month will offer a new exclusive Limited Edition figure as a competitive prize!

Another fun element to the Fear Itself storyline Organized Play event is declaring allegiance to either the servants of the Serpent, The Worthy, or the champions of Midgard, The Mighty!

Players each select to fight for The Worthy or The Mighty prior to Fear Itself events:

  • Each Faction has a corresponding special ability players can use in game thanks to the Additional Team Ability found in the Fear Itself Month One Kit.
  • Regardless of team theme, players may use the ATA for their selected faction provided they have enough points in their build.

Each month, players worldwide will compete for a different battlefield from the Fear Itself mini-series:

  • Each month, calculate the total Event Points for each Faction, the group with the most points “wins” that battle. Move the Fear Tracker (included in the Month One OP kit) in the direction towards the winning Faction.
  • There will also be a global Battlefield Poster tracking players’ progress worldwide, at HeroClix.com/FearItself/Battlefields.

Declaring allegiance will be part of the Fear Itself OP series, and by doing so players everywhere will contribute to a global effort of their faction to achieve the most victories by the end of Month 6. WizKids Games will be tracking the global progress of each faction on a larger-scale version of the Fear Itself map at HeroClix.com/FearItself/Battlefields.

Whichever faction in your store has achieved the most victories by the end of Month 6 will be declared the winners of this sub-game, and the top three overall players (consider their accumulated event points over the 6 month Organized Play series) in that faction will be awarded a special prize at the end of the Fear Itself OP series.

Customizable event templates have been pre-loaded into the WizKids Event System for easy scheduling.
