DC HeroClix Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes: Helspont!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

In the upcoming DC HeroClix: Superman and the Legion of Super Heroes set we shall all bow before the true High Lord of the Daemonites. Helspont and the Daemonites crash landed on Earth thousands of years ago. Hiding in plan site by possessing the other lesser earthling beings; it is now time to move against humanity and Helspont’s sworn enemy the WildC.A.T.s.


Helspont has a trait that proves he is High Lord of all Daemonites. This will allow him to use Leadership and when he does, treat all characters named Daemonite within 5 squares as if they were adjacent. With the SLOSH #04 Daemonites at just 50 points each teaming Helspont with multiples of them should make it easy to take advantage of his trait.

Helsponts other trait called Immortal Power allows him to use Shape Change. When Helspont makes a successful Shape Change roll, immediately heal him of 1 damage.

Helspont can start the game on 2 different starting lines; the first brings him into the game at 200 points. Helspont opens with Phasing/Teleport, Telekinesis, Impervious, and a special power called Smarter Than Lord Emp. This will allow Helspont to use Outwit and Perplex. When he uses either power and targets a character with the WildC.A.T.s keyword, he can use that power a second time this turn.

Helsponts other special power is revealed on click 2 and is called I Infiltrated You Long Ago. You may give Helspont a double power action and select an opposing character of a lower point value. Place Helspont and the chosen character in each other’s squares, and after actions resolve, Helspont may be given a close or ranged combat attack as a free action. Helspont also gains some Penetrating/Psychic Blast on this click as well. On click 3 Helspont regains Phasing/Teleport and can now also use Invulnerability and Exploit Weakness.

Click 4 is also Helsponts 125 point starting line and resembles click 1 with a slightly lower attack value. Even at this point value Helspont can still use I Infiltrated You Long Age on click 6. Helspont ends his dial with Phasing/Teleport and the ability to use Pulse Wave or Exploit Weakness.

Helspont should prove to be a beast on the battle field between his traits with an ability to heal or just cutting through defensive reducers with Penetrating/Psychic Blast or Exploit Weakness. This guy has is one powerful bag of tricks.

In all Helspont has a 9 click dial with a 7 square range and the Indomitable combat ability allowing him to use Willpower to ignore pushing damage. This will come in handy when Helspont uses his double power action special power. Helspont has the Daemonite, Past, Ruler, and The Cabal keywords.

Thanks for reading and be sure to continue to check back as we look at more figures from the upcoming DC HeroClix: Superman and the Legion of Super Heroes set. Until then, Shape Change for the Win!!
