Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Welcome to a preview of the EVIL variety from the upcoming Age of Ultron Storyline OP event! Today, we explore a Mental Organism Designed for Aggressive Maneuvers, the terrifying M.O.D.A.M.!
Much like her predecessor M.O.D.O.K., she was designed for a specific purpose – namely, she was Built for Aggressive Maneuvers. Her trait of the same name states that she can use Running Shot, but can’t use the Carry ability. Additionally, if no opposing character is within M.O.D.A.M.’s line of fire, she can use Sidestep.
Though she only possesses one special power, M.O.D.A.M. makes the most of it with her Augmented Psychic Power. This power, which appears on her opening two clicks, states that she can use Mind Control. When she does, and if she hits, after actions resolve she can use Penetrating/Psychic Blast as a free action, but only to target the hit character. The nice thing about this is that you don’t have to worry about moving the target out of your line of fire or range, because she can target the hit character regardless of range or line of fire!
Across her six click dial, M.O.D.A.M. has an array of powers that compliment her trait – namely her two attack powers, Penetrating/Psychic Blast and Pulse Wave. She also clicks where she’ll be able to use Force Blast, Impervious, Outwit, and Shape Change, amongst others. And, even if those penetrating damage powers are countered, M.O.D.A.M. is still able to break damage reducers on each click with a natural 3 damage.
Terrifying and aggressive, M.O.D.A.M. makes for a great addition to A.I.M., Robot, and Scientist teams. Be sure to take advantage of the Robot additional team ability, and don’t hesitate to couple her alongside several Dreadnought figures from the Invincible Iron Man set, so you can take advantage of both that additional team ability, as well as Hydra team ability printed on each of their dials.
