Marvel HeroClix: Avengers vs. X-Men Preview

Marvel HeroClix Avengers vs X-Men: Magik!

Greetings HeroClix fans!

Welcome back as we bring you another preview from our next Marvel HeroClix Organized Play storyline event, Avengers vs. X-Men!  Today we take a look at the younger sister of Colossus, who was kidnapped as a child by the demon Belasco and raised in the dimension of Limbo.  She eventually escaped and became a core member of the New Mutants, then later one joined Cyclops’ X-Men.  From the X-Men Starter Set, please welcome Magik!


Magik can be played at 125 or 75 points.  Magik’s 75-point dial begins on click three.  At either point level, Magik has the Mystics and X-Men team abilities and a range of five squares with two targets.  For ease in team building, Magik has the Mystical and X-Men keywords.

Magik begins play with a trait called Teleportation Discs that represents her mutant ability to travel through limbo.  To use Teleportation Discs, give Magik a power action and choose an adjacent character.  Place Magik in any square within range and the chosen character is placed in a square adjacent to Magik.  Roll a d6, and on a result of 1-4 the chosen character can’t be given a non-free action until your next turn.

As we move to Magik’s dial, we see that she starts with a five-click run of a special power in her speed slot called I’ve Beaten Belasco.  This special power lets Magik deal penetrating damage to characters with the Mystical keyword.  In her attack slot, Magik starts with a click of Pulse Wave, then switches to Telekinesis on her next two clicks before regaining Pulse Wave.

Defensively, Magik starts with Energy Shield/Deflection on her first three clicks, then gains Barrier for her next two clicks.  A powerful sorceress in Limbo, Magik begins her damage slot with a pair of Probability Control clicks, then gains two clicks of Outwit when she reaches clicks 4 and 5.

Magik’s last two clicks see her gain Blades/Claws/Fangs as she relies upon her powerful Soulsword in close-quarters combat.  I’ve Beaten Belasco is also dropped in favor of Charge, as Magik’s more impulsive side fights its way to the surface.  Finally, Magik’s danger room training is represented in her defense slot as Combat Reflexes.

Like the other figures in the AvX X-Men Starter, Magik can be attached to the T002 X-Men team base and allows it to use Phasing/Teleport.  Additionally, if Colossus is also attached then the team base can use Energy Shield/Deflection.  The T002 X-Men team base is the Month 4 participation prize for those players who chose the X-Men as their team for the Avengers vs. X-Men storyline Organized Play event.
