Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Today’s DC HeroClix: Streets of Gotham preview brings us to the oft-black sheep of the “Batman Family” of Gotham City vigilantes. Making her long-awaited return to HeroClix, we bring you Helena Bertinelli, aka the Huntress!
As seen in the pages of DC Comics’ Birds of Prey, Huntress has no qualms about employing more violent crime fighting methods on the criminals who cross her path. To demonstrate Huntress’ training and tactics, she starts with two clicks of Running Shot as she keeps her crossbow at the ready. Huntress’ tough stance on crime manifests itself as three clicks of Flurry as opposing characters nurse shattered jaws and broken noses.
In her damage slot, Huntress starts with a special power that reduces the movement of her targets. With Kneecapping Isn’t Killing, Huntress can use Close Combat Expert. When Huntress hits a target with a ranged combat attack, modify the target’s speed value by -2 until the beginning of your next turn. Kneecapping Isn’t Killing appears on Huntress’ first two clicks, and then reappears on click 4. Perplex appears in the damage slot on her other clicks.
Defensively, Huntress has Willpower on all but her first click.
Huntress comes in at 59 points and possesses a range value of five squares. She has the Batman Ally team ability, which allows her to use Stealth, and she makes a viable addition to Batman Family and Birds of Prey theme teams.
Thanks for reading! Please join us for our next DC HeroClix: Streets of Gotham preview as we visit a former member of the Gotham City Police Department with an unbeatable poker face!
