Things heat up this winter as the ultimate battle for the fate of the Earth begins as Marvel Comics’ successful Avengers vs. X-Men (AvX) storyline event comes to the tabletop thanks to HeroClix! Players will need to choose if they stand with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, the Avengers, or with the Children of the Atom, the X-Men, in four exciting monthly events in this latest HeroClix Storyline Organized Play event!
In addition to highly desirable competitive prizes exclusive to this Organized Play program, each month participating players can add to their very own collection of the Phoenix Force! Along with the Phoenix Force resource dial, players will collect five Phoenix Force Fragments in order to combine them all into one incredible source of power. Wield the might of the Phoenix Force in HeroClix!
So how does one get started? Firstly, two Marvel HeroClix Starter products: AvX – Avengers Starter and AvX – X-Men Starter, kick off the program in November. Players will select one starter and use the contents to build teams throughout the 4-month program. All of the figures in these Starters are SwitchClix, which will become very relevant as the AvX Storyline event unfolds.
Each Marvel HeroClix: AvX starter will include six figures, maps, the HeroClix Powers and Abilities Card and Core Rulebook – everything that players have come to expect from HeroClix starters. However, also included in each starter will be team specific action tokens and custom dice! Show your team pride each month when you play in your store’s AvX events with these fantastic elements!
Beginning in December, players will fight for their chosen team; will they defend the earth from the threat of the Phoenix Force alongside the Avengers? Or will they instead fight for the future of Mutant-kind with the X-Men? Each month players will select one or more figures from the starter associated with their chosen team, and construct a HeroClix force around their chosen figure(s).
As with prior Storyline OP events, AvX rewards participation as well as competitive play; monthly participation prizes allow players to collect fragments of the powerful Phoenix Force HeroClix resource.
That’s not all! During months 2 and 3, players will also receive special participation prizes: Limited Edition figures corresponding to whichever team they’ve chosen to fight alongside!
In month 4 participating players also receive an exclusive Team Base (also corresponding to whichever team they’ve selected to play with). This Team Base is compatible with the figures from their Starter product as well as a few other goodies found in the Avengers vs. X-Men storyline event!
Competitive Prizes include fan-favorites such as the time travelling warrior Cable, as well as the mutant Hope in all her White Phoenix glory, and more!
The Grand Prize in Month Four is a colossal HeroClix figure, Dark Phoenix Cyclops! This incredible HeroClix figure represents the leader of the X-Men corrupted by the absolute power of the Phoenix Force (based upon the climactic events in the Marvel Comics AvX limited series), and it is dauntingly powerful while standing menacingly on the battlefield at several inches tall!
So sharpen your claws and ready your optic blasts: Avengers vs. X-Men is coming your way this winter and nothing will be the same again!
