Greetings HeroClix Fans!
For our fifth HeroClix prize preview of the 2013 convention season, we decided to bring a little mischief to the convention season this time around because, honestly, who doesn’t enjoy a little prank every now and again? We are pleased to present Bat-Mite, who is making his first appearance in HeroClix.
Bat-Mite always has to have someone to idolize and his You’re My Hero (Trait) allows him to pick a friendly character once per game as his Idol. Bat-Mite can then Let Me Help! (Special Power) with his Idol which lets him place his Idol in a square adjacent to Bat-Mite. Like most things with Bat-Mite, it’s not that simple however. After choosing to place the Idol, you must roll a d6 that can’t be rerolled. On the result of a 1, things go awry and the Idol takes a click of unavoidable damage and the opponent gets to choose the square that the Idol gets place in that is adjacent to Bat-Mite. On a 2-6, things go a bit better as you get to pick the square to be placed in and then get to make a close combat or ranged combat attack as a free action. Once you take that free action, you can’t be given a non-free action until your next turn as there are always limitations to teaming up with Bat-Mite.
A fantastic mischief maker, Bat-Mite always has to ask Am I Bothering You? (Special Power). This special power lets him use Incapacitate but it’s the rest of the power that truly shines. Characters targeted by Bat-Mite with this power can’t target Bat-Mite or his Idol with an attack until your next turn. If you continue to pick on Bat-Mite’s Idol, he’s eventually going to tell you to Quit Picking on My Hero (Incapacitate). To make sure that Bat-Mite is able to hit home with his Incapacitate, he can always have a Do-Over (Probability Control). If that’s not enough, he can turn off the powers of those he’s messing with because of all of the things he Learn From the Comics (Outwit).
Like any good pest however Bat-Mite knows that he will eventually wear out his welcome and will need to Get Me Out of Here! (Special Power). This special power lets Bat-Mite avoid the big hit with Super Senses and then place him adjacent to his Idol or in any square within 6 squares and line of fire.
Origins Game Fair is the first convention that this figure will be available at as a prize. Will you be able to DEfeat those who stand against you or will you mask your pain? Tune in later this week for the next exciting preview.
