Heroclix Preview Superman

From Businessman to Black Lantern

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

We have another special bonus preview for you all today, this time from our upcoming DC HeroClix release, Superman.  We are pleased to present to you all, Maxwell Lord!

Maxwell Lord is every bit the shadowy manipulator in HeroClix as he is in the comics.  Stealth prevents others from drawing line of fire to him as he uses Mind Control via his Control Superman special power.  Better yet, the Control Superman special power allows Max to assign two actions as free actions instead of the standard one, and early-dial Willpower gives Maxwell Lord the opportunity to act without pushing!

Mid- to late-dial we see a transformation as Maxwell Lord returns to haunt the living as a member of the Black Lantern Corps, complete with a new power-set!  Steal Energy allows Maxwell Lord to potentially regain his Control Superman special power, while Outwit means Max can counter a power of his choosing on an opposing figure.  Lastly, late-dial Regeneration gives Max the chance  to return to his top clicks!

At 78 points Maxwell Lord is easy to fit on a variety of team builds and strategies, but the fun doesn’t end there! Maxwell Lord’s trait, Checkmate is a Law Unto Itself confers the Police team ability to any other friendly figures with the Checkmate keyword so long as they are adjacent to Max!

That’s all we have for today’s bonus preview but be sure to join us later in the week as we check in with another strange visitor from a distant planet who is also the last of his kind.  Until then, keep your Clix off their K.O.’s!
