Greetings HeroClix fans,
Welcome to another laugh-a-minute preview from the upcoming DC HeroClix: World’s Finest set! If you’ve been following us on the WizKids Facebook, then you know that Scott Porter’s been busy unboxing some new boosters. Today, we’re going to take a closer look at two figures from the DC HeroClix: World’s Finest, one of which was pulled in Scott’s latest video. Here we have two of the bestest friends the DC Universe has ever seen – they go together like Peanut Butter and Chocolate, we’re talking Booster Gold and Blue Beetle!
Up first is the man who loves the limelight, the Celebrity super-hero, Booster Gold! A one-time football player from the future, Booster stole technology and escaped to the past, allowing him to become the center of attention he always wanted to be! At 70-points with a range of 6 squares, Booster Gold is all about putting himself in position to look as good as possible – but he’s also a team player, being able to fit in on Celebrity, Future, Justice League International, Metropolis, and Super Buddies teams. His standard powers include Running Shot, Sidestep, Energy Explosion, Super Strength, Energy Shield/Deflection, Toughness, and Empower. He also has a special power called Stand Back and Watch a Real Hero, Beetle!, which grants Booster the ability to use Probability Control. But that’s not all – it has an extra “boost” that allows him to use it an additional time if one of those uses targets himself or a friendly character named Blue Beetle!
Speaking of the head of Kord Industries, here we’re taking a look at the glue that held the Justice League International together, Blue Beetle! A 60-point piece with a range of 6 squares, Blue Beetle is designed to be a support piece for your Birds of Prey, Justice League International, Scientist, or Super Buddies teams, featuring the standard powers Charge, Force Blast, Incapacitate, Combat Reflexes, Toughness, and Enhancement. He also has a special power called I’ll Let You Know When I See One, Booster!, which grants Blue Beetle the ability to use Perplex. Much like his buddy Booster, however, where this power shines is in the added effect– he can use Perplex an additional time if one of the uses targets himself or a friendly character named Booster Gold!
Together, the Blue & Gold come to 130 points, leaving you with 170 points to play with to fill out your team – a significant amount, considering some of the modern age options you have that would qualify for your squad, including the Martian Manhunter, Guy Gardner, Mister Miracle, and Captain Atom, amongst others. While they’re certainly not front-line attackers, the Blue & Gold combo are impactful additions to a team that features a tentpole to lead your assault.
That’s all for today’s DC HeroClix: World’s Finest previews!
