Greetings HeroClix Fans!
For today’s Marvel HeroClix: Galactic Guardians preview, we travel to the Negative Zone to visit with the cosmic warlord Blastaar!
A power-hungry conqueror, Blastaar possesses a range of seven and can target two characters with his attacks. Blastaar begins play utilizing Running Shot to get to a position for the attack on his first two clicks. Defensively, his battle armor (Invulnerability) protects him from damage while the Indomitable combat ability allows him to use Willpower and ignore pushing damage! As a self-proclaimed king of the Negative Zone, Blastaar also has Leadership at the start of his dial.
A native of the planet Baluur, Blastaar possesses the ability to shoot concussive blasts of energy. This ability is represented via The Living Bomb Burst, a special power on the front half of Blastaar’s dial. With this power, all damage dealt by Blastaar causes knock back.
Mid-dial, Blastaar relies defensively on his own Baluurian endurance (Toughness) for one click before returning to the use of Invulnerability. Mid-dial, Blastaar gains another special power, Negative Zone Prison Break!, in his damage slot. This power allows Blastaar to take a double power action to bring back a KO’d character of 75 points or less and place him adjacent to Blastaar. Negative Zone Prison Break! can only be used once per game and only if Blastaar occupies and opposing force’s starting area.
On the back half of his dial, Blastaar cycles through attack powers, starting with Penetrating/Psychic Blast for two clicks, then two clicks of Pulse Wave, and finally a click of Energy Explosion. In his movement slot, Blastaar gains Force Blast for two clicks then ends his dial with Phasing/Teleport. Defensively, Blastaar again relies upon his Baluurian heritage (Toughness) to keep him in the battle.
At 158 points, Blastaar brings a good selection of keywords and an aggressive power set to your force. The Flight and Indomitable abilities make Blastaar an even bigger asset to whatever team build he is included on.
We hope you enjoyed today’s preview! Be sure to join us next week as we travel through the stars and uncover more secrets from Marvel HeroClix: Galactic Guardians!
