Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Today we begin our series of previews for the DC HeroClix: Justice League microset by spotlighting a character who was rocketed to Earth as an infant from the doomed planet Krypton and fights for truth, justice, and the American way! Please welcome Superman!
The man of steel begins play with a range of six and has the Indomitable combat ability. He also has the combination of Charge and Super Strength on his first two clicks. Charge remains on Superman’s dial for a third click.
Superman also has a special power in his initial defensive slot, Helping People Is What I Do, which allows him to use Impervious. In addition, after actions resolve Superman can switch places with a friendly character within four squares and line of fire when it takes damage from an opponent’s attack. Characters less than 100 points can’t counter this power, which appears again on clicks four and seven. Superman uses Impervious normally in between those uses of Helping People Is What I Do.
Mid-dial, Superman gains a special power in his attack slot, Gale-Force Breath, which allows him to use Force Blast. When he does, he can target an adjacent character and up to two other characters that are adjacent to the first figure. If the targeted characters have zero action tokens after actions resolve, they are then given an action token. On the same three clicks as Gale-Force Breath, Superman also has Close Combat Expert.
On the back end of Superman’s dial are three clicks of Hypersonic Speed. Super Strength makes its return for two of Superman’s last three clicks. Superman’s defensive power of choice on his two clicks is Invulnerability.
Superman has the Superman Ally and JLA team abilities, along with the Justice League, Kryptonian, and Reporter keywords. At 204 points, Superman can comprise most of your force in smaller-point games but is worth using for his high early-dial combat values.
Thanks for reading! Be sure to join us for our next DC HeroClix: Justice League preview when we visit with a foul-tempered, cynical member of Justice League Dark!
