Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Today we bring you another preview from the soon to be released from Marvel HeroClix: The Invincible Iron Man set! The Stark Industries files list Ezekiel Stane, A.K.A Iron Monger 2.0 as a builder of next gen weapons and bio-weaponry for terrorists and super villians.
At 135 points, Iron Monger 2.0 starts with the trait Rewire You For Explosives, this allows for when a friendly character is KO’d by an opponent’s attack, you may deal 1 penetrating damage to each opposing character adjacent to that character. Can you see him “rewiring” some lower point bystanders that base opposing characters?
Ezekiel, son of Obadiah Stane has the Flight symbol, Indomitable, and a single target 7 range. His starting 10 movement would allow him to carry a “rewired” character into battle and his 2 top clicks with Running Shot may allow you to attack when doing so as well! He also has Invulnerable for 3 clicks and for his entire dial he has the special power You’re an Imitator, Not an Innovator that states if an opposing character within range and line of fire can use Outwit or Perplex, Iron Monger 2.0 can use that power until your next turn. This power can’t be countered. It situational, but it’s possible he could use Outwit or Perplex his entire dial!
Clicks 2 and 3 have Psychic Blast, if he’s able to couple this with Perplex through his special power, he could potentially do 4 penetrating damage. Defensively Iron Monger 2.0 follows up his Invulnerable with Toughness and after that Regeneration. With 7 clicks of life, he could potentially heal back to click 2. Stark Industries file fact, Ezekiel Stane’s excessive use of his body’s energy has shown that Stane must constantly keep his body’s blood sugar level high to make up for its rapid consumption. Stane does this by eating a 20,000 calorie paste. The flavor varieties are unknown.
Iron Monger 2.0 possesses the Armor, Hammer Industries, Mandarin’s Minions, and Scientist keywords. A potential Scientist theme team is IMM037 Iron Monger 2.0 with the Hammer Industries ATA, 3 IH017 A.I.M. Renegade’s, a WS003 Researcher, AVM038 Johann Schmidt, and an FIB010 bystander Lawyer. All characters besides Iron Monger 2.0 are less than 50 points each and are expendable for his the trait Rewire You For Explosives. Johann Schmidt has the special power My Own Private Army which allows adjacent friendly characters possessing the HYDRA team ability to also use the S.H.I.E.L.D. team ability. This will allow the A.I.M. Renegade’s up to an 8 Range and can give protection with Barrier almost every turn. Plenty of Enhancement and hopefully the Lawyer bystander does some damage if he is adjacent to an opponent when KO’d.
This ends another preview, be sure to come back next week as we continue to preview figures from more upcoming HeroClix sets!
