Greetings HeroClix Fans! Today we continue our previews of the Marvel HeroClix: Avengers Movie set as we explore the most powerful weapon in Asgard’s armory, the Destroyer!
The first thing we notice about Destroyer is his trait; Relentless Engine of Destruction, which says Destroyer can’t use the Carry ability. Also, at the beginning of your turn, Destroyer may be placed into an adjacent square. Destroyer also possesses the Sharpshooter ability, allowing range attacks against adjacent foes, Indomitable, allowing pushing damage to be ignored, and the Giant Size ability, allowing him to ignore terrain and characters for movement. Destroyer begins play utilizing his 9 range with 2 clicks of Running Shot. After this, the Destroyer sports 4 clicks of Flurry, one on each of his odd number clicks. On his attack slot, the Destroyer unleashes his disintegrator beam in the form of Penetrating/Psychic Blast on each of his 5 even numbered clicks. Defensively, the Destroyer has massive damage reduction abilities in the form of 5 clicks of Impervious to start his dial, and 5 clicks of Invulnerability to close it out. The Destroyer has aggressive combat abilities, starting with a 12 attack and ending with a 9, and damage values ranging from 3 to 5! Destroyer possesses the Armor, Asgardian, Herald, Mystical, and Robot keywords, allowing him plenty of theme team options. At 250 points, he will be most of a force in small point game, but what a force he is! Thanks for reading, and join us next Friday as we preview another figure from the Marvel Heroclix: Galactic Guardians set, as we go to Yancy Street to check in with Aunt Petunia’s favorite nephew!
