Greetings HeroClix fans!
Welcome back to another preview from this summer’s exciting Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron Storyline OP Event! Today, we’re going to take a look at one of the most iconic heroes of any generation, the star-spangled Avenger, Captain America!
This version of Captain America is based upon his Golden Age appearances, so he’s very much still ‘new to the business’ of super-heroing. As such, Cap comes in at an incredibly cost effective 65-points. He also features the Police team ability, as well as keywords allowing him to easily fit in on Avengers, Howling Commandos, Invaders, Past, or Solider themed teams.
One of the major benefits of this version of Steve is his trait, called Take Cover! This trait grants friendly characters adjacent to Captain America the ability to modify their defensive values by +1 against ranged combat attacks, if they’re not already modified by this effect. In addition to that trait, Cap also begins his 5-click dial with 1 click of a special movement power called Cap’s Motorcycle. This trait grants Captain America the ability to use Defend, and grants him the Move and Attack ability. However, he doesn’t modify his attack value by -2 when doing so.
Captain America also come with a series of great accompanying powers, including – but not limited to – Sidestep, Incapacitate, Energy Shield/Deflection, Outwit, and Ranged Combat Expert. He’s a great low-point option to include on your teams, and can fit in nicely to fill roles typically reserved for higher point (or offensively weaker) characters.
That’s it for today, ‘Clix fans! Check back soon for more exciting Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron Storyline OP previews and news form the world of HeroClix!
