DC HeroClix: Batman Preview

DC HeroClix Batman: August General In Iron!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Welcome back as we continue to explore the DC HeroClix: Batman set.  Today’s preview takes us to a member of the current lineup of the Justice League International as well as the leader of the Chinese Government’s ‘super-functionary’ program, August General in Iron!

August General in Iron begins play using Charge to engage the opposition, and once in position to make an attack, he can choose between a standard close combat action, or he can use his special power, As the Party Requires.  This special power allows August General in Iron to use Quake with the added bonus of a choosing one hit figure to take the damage as penetrating damage.  Impervious will allow August General in Iron to reduce damage for a few clicks, if not ignore it outright.  August General in Iron has a 0 printed range, but brings range support to your force with his only click of Enhancement.

Next up on August General in Iron’s dial, he gives up Enhancement and Charge to be able to pummel a foe or two with Flurry.  Rounding out the first half of August General in Irons dial is Exploit Weakness.  The Indomitable combat ability will allow August General in Iron to ignore pushing damage as he moves to grab an object with Super Strength, and then use it on an opposing figure.  A click of Regeneration will give August General in Iron the opportunity to heal back to the top of his dial.

August General in Iron starts the back half of his dial in much the same way as the front half.  Charge and his As the Party Requires special power are back, this time with Invulnerability to reduce damage.  On his next click, he trades his special power for a couple of clicks of standard Quake, while still being able to use Charge.  One more click of Flurry shows up before the end of his dial.  On his last click, August General in Iron has the option to make his close combat attack stick with Exploit Weakness or attempt to heal back to mid-dial with another click of Regeneration. 

August General in Iron has the Justice League team ability, allowing him to move without using and action from your action pool.  August General in Iron will find his way onto a few theme teams with Great Ten, Justice League International, and Soldier keywords.  At 142 points, August General in Iron will be a great addition to whatever team you choose to build around.
