Marvel HeroClix: Chaos War – The Chaos King!

Greetings, HeroClix fans!

Today we launch our previews of the Marvel HeroClix: Chaos War set and there’s no better character to spotlight with our first sneak peek than the main villain of the Chaos War storyline, Chaos King!

Also known as Amatsu-Mikaboshi, Chaos King can be played at either 350 or 300 points.  When he’s played at his 300-point level, his dial begins on click three. At either point level, Chaos King has a range of 11 and can target three characters.  Chaos King also possesses the Power Cosmic team ability, which prevents his powers from being countered and allows him to use Willpower.

Chaos King begins play with a trait, Enslavement, which allows him to use Mind Control as a free action after actions resolve when he KO’s an opposing character. He can target any number of characters on the defeated figure’s force as long as they total fewer points than the defeated character. Those characters don’t need to be within range or line of fire, and Chaos King still takes any applicable feedback damage.

As part of a plan to increase the size of his army, Chaos King marched through the cosmos and absorbed any alien pantheons in his path. This march of destruction is represented on Chaos King’s dial as four opening clicks of Running Shot. Mid-dial, Chaos King switches from Running Shot to Hypersonic Speed for three clicks. Eventually, Chaos King traveled to the home world of the Silver Surfer, Zenn-La, where he annihilated most of that planet’s gods. Phasing/Teleport on Chaos King’s last four clicks represents his journey to find the gods of Zenn-La!

Amatsu-Mikaboshi was an ancient force who existed before the universe’s creation. To represent Chaos King’s status as a fundamental force of nature, he possesses the Pulse Wave power for the first two clicks of his attack slot. This power, combined with Running Shot and his range of 11, allows Chaos King to quickly engage many opposing characters! Mid-dial, Chaos King switches tactics and gains Smoke Cloud for three clicks. At the end of his dial, he gains two clicks of Penetrating/Psychic Blast to show opposing characters that they can’t escape harm from the embodiment of nothingness!

Defensively, Chaos King begins with two clicks of Impervious to help him absorb most or all damage dealt to him.  Chaos King then cycles between Invulnerability and Impervious for his next seven clicks before he ends his dial with two clicks of Regeneration! In his damage slot, Chaos King starts with four clicks of Probability Control to help him make sure his attack rolls are successful (or ensure that his opponents’ rolls are unsuccessful). That’s followed by three clicks of Outwit. Finally, Chaos King picks up four clicks of Perplex.

Chaos King has a steady set of combat values and a long dial, which make him a formidable force on his own or an excellent piece to build around in high-point matches! He also possesses a trio of keywords (Cosmic, Deity, and Mystical) that are helpful for team building!

We hope you enjoyed today’s preview! Join us next week as we continue to highlight even more exciting HeroClix product! Until then, keep your Clix off their K.O.’s!
