Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Today we shine the spotlight on one of the Hulk’s trusted companions, an honorary Avenger, and a sidekick to several other heroes. Let’s say “hello!” to Rick Jones!
At 48 points, Rick Jones can easily be included on many forces. He possesses the Avengers and Cosmic keywords. A well-traveled fellow, Rick Jones has two team abilities (Avengers and Spider-Man) which reflect his time with the Avengers and his versatility as a sidekick.
Rick Jones enters play with Toughness and Close Combat Expert on his opening click. Move him off that click, and he switches defensively to Combat Reflexes and gains Perplex. Rick Jones also gains an alter ego special power, I’ve Led an Interesting Life, which allows him to switch to his alter ego, A-Bomb! Wait, there’s more! I’ve Led an Interesting Life also allows Rick Jones to switch to two more alter egos that will be available in future Marvel HeroClix sets, Captain Marvel and Genis-Vell!
For now, let’s focus our attention on A-Bomb! At 151 points, A-Bomb begins play with Charge, Super Strength, and Impervious. He also has a trait, Camouflage, which blocks lines of fire to him when he’s targeted by an attack while adjacent to a wall or blocking terrain.
A-Bomb switches to Stealth midway through his dial before regaining Charge. At the end of his dial, A-Bomb gains Leap/Climb, allowing him to break away automatically from other characters or attack characters on a different elevation!
Defensively, A-Bomb switches from Impervious to Invulnerability toward the middle of his dial. At the same time, he also has Exploit Weakness to get through those tough-skinned (or armored) opponents. Speaking of armor, A-Bomb has both the Armor and Brute keywords!
That’s all for today but be sure to join us next time as we reveal yet another member of the new Fantastic Four in Marvel HeroClix: Hulk! Until then, keep your clix off their KOs!
