Captain America Preview

Happy Release Day Captain America Fans!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Everywhere Heroclix players are opening boosters from the latest expansion for Marvel HeroClix, Captain America and sharing news of their fantastic pulls and enjoying their collections’ newest additions.  What better way to celebrate than to share with you a sneak-peek at the set’s limited edition figures?

We begin our article with the Red Guardian!

Red Guardian comes to the fight ready for battle! With Charge and Exploit Weakness on his opening clicks, not only can the Red Guardian manuever into combat aginst his foes, but he’s sure to deal damage against even the most hardened enemies! Late-dial he switches tactics and uses Incapacitate to stymie his opponents while Close Combat Expert allows the Red Guardian to smash the foes of the Motherland!

Initially, the Red Guardian is protected from damage  first by Invulnerability, and then Toughness. while Combat Reflexes helps keep the Red Guardian safe from melee reprisals towards the end of his dial.

At 90 points, the Red Guardian is an excellent addition to your Soviet Super Soldiers roster, and his Soviet Duo trait grants an attack bonus to both he and the Black Widow (his ex-wife!) when the two fight alongside each other!

Next up, we have the unsinkable ally to everyone’s favorite “merc with a mouth”, Bob-Agent of Hydra!

At 33 points, Bob is an excellent sidekick, um-minion, er-support piece for your force! Bob’s I’m Really Good At Hiding Behind Others special power blocks lines of fire drawn to him when he’s adjacent to a friendly figure named Deadpool, or any friendly figure that is 150 points or more.   Bob’s Cowardice is My Attack! Your Accidental Death is My Victory! special power also allows Bob to use Probability Control (but only during your opponent’s turns)!

Front-loaded Willpower grants Bob the ability to act without fear of pushing, and Energy Explosion allows him to have an impact on the battlefield.  Sure, he’s only got a 3 range value, but watch out if you get within his sights!  Or, um, something.

And let’s not forget that Bob has the Hydra team ability which lets him help friendly figures make ranged combat attacks against their enemies!

Next up, we have a former Howling Commando and veteran S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Gabe Jones!

Gabe Jones is an excellent addition to your force as both a secondary attack and support piece.  Early-dial Running Shot allows Gabe to manuever onto the battlefield making ranged combat attacks, while Energy Explosion gives Gabe the opportunity to affect multiple enemies at once! That’s not all, Gabe Jones grants a bonus to the speed values of friendly figures with the Howling Commandos or S.H.I.E.L.D. keywords via his The Heart and Soul special power, allowing you to gain a greater advantage on the battlefield!

Initially Gabe Jones is protected from some damage by way of Toughness, but mid-dial his determination is represented by Willpower.  Late-dial Gabe Jones gains protection from ranged attacks with Energy Shield/Deflection while he gains Outwit and demonstrates that experience often makes all the difference in battle!

Last up, we have an enemy of S.H.I.E.L.D. and one of the most wanted women on the planet, Madame Hydra!

One of Captain America’s and S.H.I.E.L.D.’s most persistent foes, Madame Hydra is a master strategist and dangerous foe! Striking from the shadows via Stealth, Madame Hydra demonstrates her skill with her sword with Blades/Claws/Fangs, while Mastermind allows her devoted followers to step in harm’s way and protect her from her foes!

Madame Hydra’s Psychedelic Presence special power represents her ability to manipulate, cajole, or otherwise ensure that her minions perform to her expectations.  This special power allows Madame Hydra to use Perplex normally, or when she targets a friendly character withe the Hydra team ability or keyword, she may modify any combat value but damage by +2!

Mid-dial Madame Hydra steps out of the shadows and resorts to Incapacitate to stun her foes, while Combat Reflexes protects her in close quarters.  And should someone try to base Madame Hydra, she gains Exploit Weakness as well allowing her to strike at her enemies’ weak points!

At the end of her dial, Madame Hydra returns to the shadows and again resorts to her Psychedelic Presence special power and Blades/Claws/Fangs to strike at her foes!
