Chaos War Preview

Inhuman Foe to the Mighty Avengers: The Unspoken!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

For today’s preview from the Marvel HeroClix: Chaos War set, we check in with a former ruler of the Inhumans who has had his name stricken from history after he was overthrown.   The Inhuman with the Terrigen Mist-granted power to alter his form into any he wishes, The Unspoken!

The Unspoken possesses a trait called Life Underground, allowing him to use both Stealth and Leadership as long as he is on the lowest level of terrain on a map.  Further making it difficult for his opponents to make range attacks against him is a special power in his damage slot called Slave Engine Degeneration.  This power makes opposing characters within 3 squares possess Battle Fury, and makes it so they can’t be given power actions.  The Unspoken uses this combination of special power and trait to set himself up to best utilize the complimentary powers Charge and Super Strength, which, with his printed 11 attack and 5 damage, has a lot of potential to damage an opposing figure!    The Unspoken possesses the Power Cosmic team ability, so he does not fear your opponents’ use of Outwit to try to gain an advantage over him.

Impervious will alternate with Invulnerability for the first six clicks of his dial, providing a lot of damage reduction for The Unspoken!  On his third click, The Unspoken gives up move and attack and his Super Strength for Force Blast to repel opposing figures who try to bypass his defenses to try and knock him off his special power.

Mid-dial, The Unspoken switches tactics as he gains Phasing/Teleport to take him where he will have the most impact on a battle.   Shape Change will provide The Unspoken some protection from being targeted by opposing figures for a couple of clicks.   At this point in his dial, The Unspoken switches his damage reducer to Toughness for the rest of his dial.

At the end of his dial, The Unspoken shows he will not go down without a fight.  Charge returns to his dial, combined with a printed 3 damage as well as a printed 12 attack on his last click.  If The Unspoken’s 3 damage isn’t enough, you can attempt more by rolling for his Blades/Claws/Fangs on these last two clicks.

As well as the previously mentioned Power Cosmic team ability, The Unspoken possesses the Inhumans and Ruler keywords, providing a couple of theme team options.  Or, at 236 points, he will make a solid tent pole with room for some support figures on a non-theme build.  The potential to crack damage reducers on every click without penetrating damage and attack numbers that only see one mid-dial single digit attack will make The Unspoken an aggressive addition to your force!

Thanks for reading and be sure to check back next week when we continue to explore the Marvel HeroClix: Chaos War set.
