Marvel HeroClix Avengers vs. X-Men: Colossus!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Welcome as we look at the figures from the upcoming Marvel HeroClix: Avengers vs. X-Men organized play event. Today we break through walls as we look at Colossus from the X-Men Starter Pack!


Colossus possesses Improved Movement and can ignore hindering terrain and blocking terrain. As he moves through the blocking terrain, Colossus destroys it leaving behind debris tokens in the squares that were blocking terrain.

Colossus has two separate starting lines. His veteran line is 175 points and starts with I Believe In The X-Men; this will allow Colossus to use Charge and Plasticity. If he has two actions tokens, adjacent friendly characters that can use the X-Men Team Ability can use that team ability as a free action.

The X-Men Team Ability: When two friendly characters that can use the X-Men team ability are adjacent to each other, give one of them a power action and roll a d6. Heal the other character of 1 damage. If the result was a 1-4 deal the character given the power action 1 unavoidable damage.

Can you say “free action heal”, but only when Colossus has 2 action token on him. Being he is also Indomitable this could happen after he performs a non-free action in round 2 and then again during round 3, and nothing states that the other character has to use it to heal Colossus.

Colossus also has a special power called Steel-Skinned X-Man; this allows him to use Defend and Impervious but on click 2 switches to Invincible. On both clicks 1 and 2 he can use Super Strength.

Click 3 is the start of Colossus’s experienced starting line at a point value of 125. He can use both special powers I Believe In The X-Men and Steel-Skinned X-Man as well as having Super Strength. Colossus picks up Sidestep for movement; allowing him to move 2 squares as a free action. Colossus also gains the use of Empower.

On click 6 Colossus can now use Invulnerability and Battle Fury. Next he gains the standard use of Charge and ends with the use of his special power Steel-Skinned X-Man.

Colossus has the X-Men team ability and Armor, Mystical and X-Men are his keywords.

When Colossus is on the AvX T002 X-Men team dial; that character can use Charge. When they do, if Magik is also attached, they can use Improved Movement and ignore blocking terrain!

Thank you for joining us today. Come back next week for more Marvel HeroClix: Avengers vs. X-Men as we reveal the X-Men with the magnetic personality. Until then, Shape Change for the Win!!!
