Galactic Guardians Heroclix Preview

From Herald to Annihilator!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

For today’s Marvel HeroClix: Galactic Guardians Annihilators Fast Forces pack preview, we soar through the cosmos with the best known of Galactus’ heralds, the Silver Surfer!


Silver Surfer can be played at either 200 points or 100 points.  If played at 100 points, Silver Surfer begins his dial on click four.  At either point level, Silver Surfer possesses a range of nine and the Power Cosmic team ability, which enables him to ignore pushing damage and prevents his powers from being countered.

Silver Surfer begins his dial with two clicks of Running Shot that are backed defensively by two clicks of Impervious.  On his second click, he gains Energy Explosion.  In Golden Age games, you can assign the Ambidextrous feat (available under the Print and Play link) to Silver Surfer for 18 points and gain two targets to use with Energy Explosion!

Silver Surfer changes his defensive and offensive strategies on his third click:  Running Shot is replaced by Hypersonic Speed for one click and Impervious is replaced by Invulnerability for two clicks.  On Silver Surfer’s fourth click, the being formerly known as Norrin Radd replaces Hypersonic Speed with two clicks of Phasing/Teleport!

Starting on his fifth click, Silver Surfer switches defensive tactics again.  This time, his silver skin is represented by Toughness as his damage reducer of choice for four clicks.  On click five, his ability to rearrange matter manifests as gains Penetrating/Psychic Blast to ignore damage-reducing powers on opposing characters.

Toward the end of the Surfer’s dial, he regains Running Shot for three clicks and Energy Explosion for one click.  Penetrating/Psychic Blast makes another appearance on the Surfer’s second-to-last click.  Finally, Silver Surfer regains the use of Phasing/Teleport on his last click.  This allows the Surfer to break away automatically and then, as a limitles wellspring of power, recover with Regeneration!

With two playable point levels and a quartet of neat keywords (Annihilators, Cosmic, Defenders, and Herald), Silver Surfer makes a great addition to any team!

We hope you enjoyed today’s preview!  Join us on Wednesday for our next Marvel HeroClix: Avengers Movie preview as we visit with a member of the Howling Commandos who initially was turned away by the military!
