Marvel HeroClix: Fear Itself Preview

Marvel HeroClix Fear Itself: Iron Fist!

Greetings Heroclix Fans!

Today we will continue our previews of the Marvel Heroclix : Fear Itself set with a double dose of Iron Fist!

007 Iron Fist

Iron Fist has an improved movement power called Master of K’un Lun which allows him to ignore elevated, hindering terrain, and other characters for movement purposes. Iron Fist has a special defensive power called Immortal Weapon of Agamotto which lets Iron Fist use Combat Reflexes and Super Senses. Iron Fist also had a special damage power called The Iron Fist which says Iron Fist can use Close Combat Expert. When he does and has no action tokens, if his attack is at least 2 greater than his target’s defense value, modify his damage value by an additional +1.

Iron Fist’s dial starts with these two special powers as well as Charge. Iron Fist has Charge most of his dial though at the middle of his dial he loses the special powers and gains Willpower and Exploit Weakness instead. Iron Fist’s last two clicks have Regeneration, allowing him to possibly heal back up to his second click. Iron Fist is an 80 point close combat beast.

018 Iron Fist

We also have The Mighty version of Iron Fist. One of the first differences you will notice between The Mighty version of Iron Fist and the normal Iron Fist is that The Mighty version has Flight, Indomitable, and a range value of 4. Also The Mighty Version of Iron Fist is 94 points, which is 14 points more.  Iron Fist’s dial also starts out with a special attack power called Mighty Hammer and Chain which says Give Iron Fist a power action, choose an opposing character within range and line of fire, and roll a d6. If the d6 result is higher than the number of squares to that character, you may place that character in a square adjacent to Iron Fist. On any result, you may then make a close combat attack. This allows Iron Fist to move character in closer before he hits them, which will be helpful if you can’t move Iron Fist close enough with Telekinesis or if you just want to place a character where another friendly character can blast away at them.

Iron Fist’s dial also starts out with Charge, Combat Reflexes, and Close Combat Expert. Mid Dial Iron Fist gets Super Senses and Quake. Also on click 5 Iron Fist has a special damage power called Mighty Revert: Iron Fist which, when it is shown, has you stop clicking the dial. It also allows you to give Iron Fist a free action to replace him with a figure with the same name and a lesser point value on the same click. It also gives the new character +1 attack and damage for the rest of the game, and the power cannot be ignored.
