Avengers Movie Heroclix Preview

Just a Kid From Brooklyn

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Today we continue our previews of the Marvel HeroClix: Avengers Movie set with an all-American boy from Brooklyn, Bucky Barnes!

Bucky Barnes begins play with Stealth on his first two clicks to hide from his opponents, while an initial click of provides hindering terrain for Bucky and his allies to hide in, or hinders the opposing force.   On his second click, we see that Bucky Barnes gains Willpower and keeps that power for the rest of his dial.  Finally, early-dial  Perplex gives Bucky the chance to help himself or others out, and represents his ingenuity on the battlefield.

Mid-dial, Bucky Barnes switches tactics as he gains some offensive mobility in Running Shot for a click, and picks up Energy Explosion for a couple clicks.  On his final two clicks, Bucky  has Close Combat Expert as he takes the fight right to his opponents.

Bucky Barnes also has a pair of traits to show his partnership with his lifelong friend Steve Rodgers.  First up is Brooklyn Dou, which allows both Bucky Barnes and a friendly Captain America to modify their attack values by +1 while adjacent, if they aren’t already modified by this effect.  Even if KO’ed, Bucky Barnes can still affect the game due to his second trait, Don’t forget Me, Steve,which allows you to modify a friendly Captain America’s attack by +1 for the rest of the game when Bucky is KOed.

At 50 points, with a good selection of keywords, and a solid power set and stats, Bucky Barnes will be an asset to many forces, especially one that includes any Captain America. 

Thanks for reading, and join us next Wednesday as we continue to explore the Marvel HeroClix: Avengers Movie expansion.  Be sure to come back Friday as we continue our previews of Marvel Heroclix: Galactic Guardians.
