Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Today we bring you another preview from the Marvel HeroClix: X-Men 2014 Monthly Organized Play kit! The X-Men 2014 Monthly Organized Play kit includes 4 copies of 3 Limited Edition figures not found anywhere else. Additionally, all three Limited Edition figures in the X-Men 2014 Monthly Organized Play kit interact with the X-Men team bases from Marvel HeroClix: Wolverine and the X-Men. Today’s preview is Rogue, let’s see how she stacks up.
Rogue is 99 points of pain and suffering for your opponent. She has the Wing combat symbol and a zero range so she is definitely upwardly mobile with her special attack power Southern Hospitality that allows Rogue to use Sidestep and Charge. She has Super Strength and Toughness so when she uses her attack special power, make sure you pick up a housewarming gift in the form of an object.
Rogue has a damage special attack power as well named Take Who You Are. It states when Rogue hits an opposing character, choose attack or defense. After actions resolve, you may choose to replace her combat value with the hit character’s printed combat value of the chosen type and she can use the hit character’s power of the chosen type. This effect lasts until she chooses to replace her combat value again. Her zero range could be less of a problem with this power.
Her top 3 clicks are identical as far as powers go, but Rogue’s dial changes at click 4. She loses her ability to use Sidestep and just possesses standard Charge and swaps out Super Strength for Precision Strike for her next 2 clicks. So far each click has brought the ability to give high damage with Super Strength or minimum damage with Precision Strike, but on click 5 she gets Exploit Weakness. Seeing how damage never goes below 3 on her dial, she will be definitely dishing out the damage. Her last 2 clicks also trade Toughness for Willpower so she can finish off her opposition without taking damage herself.
Rogue also can be added to the Blue Strike Force team base and she brings the ability for it with T001 X-Men: Blue Strike Force which allows for when a character goes on Solo Adventure from this team character, choose a standard power the team character can use. Rogue can use that power as long as this asset is displayed. She also has the Avengers, Brotherhood of Mutants, and X-Men keywords so building a theme team with her will be easy.
Thanks for reading yet another preview from the Marvel HeroClix: X-Men 2014 Monthly Organized Play kit and be sure to come back soon for our next Marvel HeroClix Monthly OP preview, it wouldn’t be wise if you skip it!
