Greetings HeroClix Fans! We journey to the far-flung future for today’s preview, a dystopian era where a crusading team of heroes have banded together to fight tyranny and oppression as the Guardians of the Galaxy! We are pleased to present Martinex!
Martinex begins play with two special powers on his dial; on his attack slot, Martinex wields his Hot and Cold special power which enables him to use Energy Explosion. As an added treat (though not for his targets!), Martinex is also able to use Incapacitate as a free action once his Energy Explosion attack resolves! On his defense slot, Martinex possesses the Brittle Crystal Form special power. Brittle Crystal Form grants Martinex the use of Toughness, but when an opposing character attacks him and rolls an 8 or less, Martinex can instead use Impervious!
Mid-dial Martinex displays his scientific acumen with some ever-handy Perplex, while late-dial his Brittle Crystal Form gives way to standard Toughness and Hot and Cold becomes Penetrating/Psychic Blast!
At only 82 points and with solid attack values throughout almost his entire dial, Martinex will be an asset to your Guardians of the Galaxy teams! The Defenders team ability will allow him to share the defense values of hardier allies (who are also using that team ability) while his Future, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Scientist keywords ensure Martinex will be useful for a number of strategies!
That’s all we have for today but join us next week as we check in with the Thunder God’s Oathbrother on Monday, and continue with the Thunder God’s oft-misunderstood half-brother on Wednesday! Until then, keep your clix off their K.O’s!
