Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Our series of previews for Marvel’s Avengers movie continues today by spotlighting the heir to Asgard’s throne and the favored son of Odin. Please welcome the mighty God of Thunder, Thor!
Thor hits the battle map with a range of seven and Charge on his first three clicks. For his first two clicks he also has Super Strength and Impervious! Starting on click three, Thor switches tactics and Super Strength becomes Quake for two clicks. He also picks up one click of Flurry. Defensively, Thor relies upon the protection of his Asgardian Armor (Invulnerability) for three clicks.
Thor also has a special power, Rage of a Wayward Son, in his damage slot on the top half of his dial. When Thor starts a turn adjacent to an opposing character of 75 points or more, he can make a close combat attack as a free action at the start of the turn if he is able. He also gains Battle Fury for that turn as part of the special power.
On the back half of Thor’s dial he again changes his movement and attack strategies, this time to two clicks of Running Shot and Pulse Wave. Defensively, Thor switches from Invulnerability to two clicks of Toughness. Flurry makes an appearance again on Thor’s second-to-last click.
Thor is never truly out of the fight for long. On the thunder god’s last two clicks he has a special power, The Big Three. The Big Three enables Thor to roll three dice for attack rolls and ignore the result of one of those dice! Regeneration on Thor’s last click helps him heal and dish out more damage. The Indomitable combat ability increases Thor’s opportunities to heal or deliver more pain to opposing figures by allowing him to use Willpower and ignore pushing damage!
The mighty Avenger comes in at 160 points and leaves plenty of room available for other figures on a force, particularly those which utilize his three keywords: Asgardian, Deity, and Warrior!
We hope you enjoyed today’s preview! Join us next time as we reveal more mysteries from the Marvel HeroClix: Avengers Movie set!
