Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Today we bring you a preview from the upcoming Marvel HeroClix: X-Men – Days of Future Past gravity feed set. Steel yourself for the hometown collective hero of the state, Colossus. Should we take a closer look? Da!
Colossus has 2 point values, 200 and 100 points respectively. With both values, he has the trait Unstoppable! It says Colossus can use Super Strength. At the beginning of your turn, Colossus can use Sidestep. Free movement to pick up an object and then bash your opponent with it or throw it at them? Da tovarisch! With Indomitable he’ll be able to push without capitalistic repercussion as well.
At his 200 point value, Colossus has a total 9 clicks of life and good combat values as well. He starts with Charge with a movement of 10, a 10 attack, Impervious with an 18 defense, and a 4 damage with the special power Mutant Powerhouse which states Colossus can use Close Combat Expert. Colossus’ other powers can’t be countered. This is great for Colossus in that technically his other powers can be Outwitted, but this special power would have to be Outwitted to do so. On click 3 he swaps Mutant Powerhouse with Empower and click on 4 he gains Quake and Invincible.
Try using his traited Sidestep to avoid using Charge if you can. If you have an ultra-heavy object, you can use Close Combat Expert with the object for a plus three to damage, plus two to attack. A 7 damage output and a 12 or 13 attack on the first 2 clicks!
Colossus’ 100 point dial starts on click 5, and his Rookie dial is well represented here. He starts with only 2 clicks of Charge on his 5 click dial, but remember his trait gives you Sidestep at the beginning of your turn! He has Quake for 3 clicks, Invincible for 2 clicks, and Empower for 3 clicks. He ends his last 2 clicks with Steal Energy and Invulnerability. His Steal Energy can really come in handy to heal but he also has the X-Men team ability as well. The people of the X-Men collective can work together to heal Colossus as well.
Thank you for reading this preview comrades. Be sure to come back as we preview more characters from the upcoming Marvel HeroClix: X-Men – Days of Future Past release or you may be set upon by a rather large mutant with questionable dietary habits.
