Greetings, HeroClix fans!
For today’s DC HeroClix: Justice League preview we shine the spotlight on a warrior who commands an equal amount of respect from the superhero community as her colleagues Superman and Batman. From the island nation of Themyscira, please welcome the daughter of Hippolyta and Zeus, Wonder Woman!
DC HeroClix: Justice League features more than 20 ALL-NEW, unique sculpts and dials for characters in the New 52 DC Universe. As one of the New 52 Universe’s strongest characters, Wonder Woman packs quite a punch with the combo of Charge and Super Strength on her first click. Those powers are backed defensively by Impervious.
Wonder Woman’s next two clicks feature the same mix of powers: Charge remains in her movement slot to help her defend the helpless, while her Amazon strength is represented via Close Combat Expert in her damage slot. Defensively, Wonder Woman switches from Impervious to Invulnerability. She also has the Indomitable combat ability.
As we reach the heart of Wonder Woman’s dial, Charge makes way for three clicks of Flurry to show that Diana has two bracelets to go along with her two fists. A special power, Lasso of Truth, appears on these same three clicks and represents Wonder Woman’s ubiquitous weapon! When Wonder Woman is given a power action to use Lasso of Truth, she can make a ranged combat attack as if she had a range value of 4. The attack deals no damage but a character that is hit is given an action token and all its speed and damage powers are countered until your next turn.
Defensively, Wonder Woman puts her hand-to-hand Amazon training to use as she drops Invulnerability in favor of Combat Reflexes for two clicks. Wonder Woman gains Toughness on her last three clicks.
Charge and Super Strength return on Wonder Woman’s last two clicks. In case there are no objects for Diana to use with her Super Strength, she also regains Close Combat Expert to help her dish out extra damage.
Wonder Woman comes in at 136 points and has the Justice League team ability. She makes a viable main attacker on many forces and her keywords (Amazon, Deity, Justice League, and Warrior) offer plenty of options for team building.
Thanks for reading! Please join us next time for our next DC HeroClix: Justice League preview when we visit with a monarch who spends as much time on land as he does in water! Until then, keep your Clix off their KOs!
