Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Welcome to another preview from the upcoming Marvel HeroClix: Amazing Spider-Man set. Today, we have a look at a character who has embraced her demonic heritage and abilities as a succubus, Satana Hellstrom!
Satana Hellstrom begins play being able to use Charge to take the fight right to an opposing figure. This will allow her to trigger both of her special powers on her opening click. The first special power is on the front half of her dial, and is called Soul Collector, and it allows her to use Steal Energy. Normally, Steal Energy is not at all useful on a figures first click, but this version allows Satana Hellstrom to put an Excess Soul token on her character card, and she can be given a free action to remove an Excess Soul token to modify all of her combat abilities by +1 until your next turn. This part of the special power only works on her first click, but it can make a solid figure better. Her second special power is called Soul Shrivel, and is spread out at various points across her dial. This special power can be a benefit to your entire force as it modifies the combat abilities by -1 of a character that Satana Hellstrom hits.
On her next couple of clicks, Satana Hellstrom can use her Phasing/ Teleport to reposition herself with ease. This will allow her to get to where she can the most useful to her force with her Probability Control. Or she can continue to remain in close combat and attempt to heal back to the top of her dial with her Soul Collector special power. On her next click, except for lower combat values, she looks like her top click again as she regains both Charge and her Soul Shrivel special power. Throughout the front half of her dial, Satana Hellstrom is protected by Toughness.
Satana Hellstrom becomes more of a range combat piece on the back half of her dial. Energy Shield Deflection will make her harder to hit with range attacks for the rest of her dial. A couple of clicks of Running Shot will allow her to position herself better as she uses her 5 range to make range attacks. Penetrating/ Psychic Blast will make sure the damage she deals will get through on these clicks. On the first click of this combination, her Soul Shrivel special powerwill again modify her targets combat abilities by -1 when she hits. After this, Satana Hellstrom switches back to Probability Control to close out her dial. On her last click, Satana Hellstrom has Phasing/Teleport one more time.
Satana Hellstrom can be played on multiple theme teams as she has the Howling Commandos, Mystical, S.H.I.E.L.D., and Thunderbolts keywords. At 82 points, she will be a valuable secondary attacker on any force you choose to include her on.
Thanks for joining us today, and be sure to come back next week as we check in with a villain associated with odd-toed unglates. Until then, keep your Clix off their K.O.’s!
