Greetings HeroClix Fans!
For today’s Marvel HeroClix: Avengers Movie preview we spend some time in the shadows with one of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s best “Men in Black”, Agent Coulson!
As a key member of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Coulson is no rookie when it comes to the world of espionage. As a matter of fact, the silver ring around his dial designates his experience level as unique, which means that only one Agent Coulson can be on your force!
Agent Coulson begins his dial with a pair of special powers on the first two clicks of his movement and attack slots. In his movement slot, Agent Coulson can make friendly characters mysteriously appear with a special power called I Need all of this Confiscated, Now! This power allows Agent Coulson to place up to two friendly characters adjacent to him. These characters must have the S.H.I.E.L.D. keyword, be 50 points or less, and be within eight squares of Agent Coulson! The second special power, I’m Not Intimidated by Any “Super” Heroes, prevents characters with a point value of 100 points or more from targeting Agent Coulson with attacks unless he’s the only character remaining on your force!
Defensively, Agent Coulson has Standard Issue Kevlar (Energy Shield/Deflection) on his first two clicks which make him difficult to hit with ranged attacks. He also has Perplex on those same two clicks.
On the back half of Agent Coulson’s dial, he ditches the special powers in favor of standard ones. Stealth represents Agent Coulson’s knack for sneaking off to take care of secret stuff for S.H.I.E.L.D. while Penetrating/Psychic Blast represents his usage of confiscated technologies (likely obtained from Tony Stark) as weaponry! Agent Coulson sheds the Kevlar protection in favor of Willpower to show that he’s not afraid to loosen his tie, roll up his sleeves, and put his S.H.I.E.L.D. combat training to use!
Agent Coulson’s file lists him at 50 points and possessing a range of six. He has both the S.H.I.E.L.D. keyword and team ability and makes an excellent, low-cost addition to any force of heroes!
That’s all we have for today! Join us on Friday for our next Marvel HeroClix: Galactic Guardians preview when we spotlight a monarch who has been the Fantastic Four’s greatest enemy and an ally of the Future Foundation! Until then, keep your clix off their KOs!
