Galactic Guardians Heroclix Preview

An Axe to Grind!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Today in our ongoing previews of the new Marvel Heroclix: Galactic Guardians set, we check in with a former herald of Galactus, the executioner Morg!


Morg possess both the Power Cosmic team ability, making him unoutwittable and able to ignore pushing damage, and a trait called Execution, allowing Morg to modify his attack value by +2 when attacking an adjacent character with 2 action tokens.  The Flight ability and a 5 range add mobility and fire power to Morg’s dial.

Morg begins play with Hypersonic Speed allowing him set up a good first strike.  Invulnerability will protect him from most counter attacks.  On his second click, Morg changes tactics a bit as he can use Charge with his 4 damage to engage a single foe, or use his attack special power, Axe Swipe, allowing Morg to use Quake. When he uses Quake and hits, instead of replacing his damage value, roll a d6 and subtract 2, minimum 2.  Each hit character is dealt damage equal to the result.  Toughness protects him on these two clicks of his dial.  On his third click, Morg gains Exploit Weaknessfor his next four clicks, making the damage from his close combat actions stick.

Mid-dial, Morg keeps both Charge and Exploit Weakness, and trades his attack special power for Blades/Claws/Fangs.  Invulnerability again protects him for one click, and then switches back to two clicks of Toughness.  Again, Morg utilizes Hypersonic Speed for one click, this time with his Axe Swipe special power in his attack slot.  Late-dial, Morg closes out his dial using Charge.  Offensively,Axe Swipe is traded for Blades/Claws/Fangs.  Invulnerability shows up one last time, and Morg closes out his dial with the opportunity to heal himself with Regeneration on his last click.   

Morg posses the Cosmic and Herald keywords, giving him some team building options.  The ability to move and attack on every click, damage values on all clicks but one able to punch through damage reducers, if not ignore them all together and aggressive attack values will make Morg a welcome addition to most forces.

Thanks for reading, and join us next Wednesday as we continue to explore the Marvel HeroClix: Avengers Movie expansion as we visit the halls of Asgard to check in with one most Voluminous.  Be sure to come back Friday as we continue our previews of Marvel Heroclix: Galactic Guardians as we preview a surgeon with an eye for artifacts.
