Greetings HeroClix Fans!
In the upcoming Marvel HeroClix: X-Men – Days of Future Past gravity feed set, we travel to a dark and foreboding future where Sentinels roam and mutants are hunted down. In the present day, he is the mutant who has proved time and time again, “I’m the best there is at what I do but what I do best isn’t very nice. I’m the Wolverine!”
Wolverine has a trait named after his signature mutant power, Healing Factor, allowing him to use Regeneration, and it allows him to use it as a free action if he has two tokens. The Indomitable combat ability will allow him to act two turns in a row with no fear of pushing damage. As well as ensure he has two tokens for two turns in a row to use Regeneration as a free action, as given to him by his trait.
Wolverine begins the game taking the fight right to your opponent with a special power called Berserker Barrage!, allowing him to wound two figures or potentially KO one with the combination of Charge, to move into position, Flurry, to make two close combat attacks, with the option to use Blades/Claws/Fangs. Additionally, these three clicks all have Precision Strike printed on them, so Wolverine will ignore Super Senses and Mastermind, and damage can’t be reduced below 1. As he should be well into enemy territory and based, Combat Reflexes will modify his defense value by +2 against close combat attacks. If Wolverine is smart enough to bring any of his fellow X-Men up close to fight their enemies, his Empower will allow them to increase their damage by +1 for close combat attacks.
Mid way through his dial, Wolverine has his Berserker Barrage! special power split into a couple of its standard powers as he now has a couple of clicks of Flurry, and Blades/Claws/Fangs for the rest of his dial. Another click in and Wolverine gets some damage reduction with Toughness for the rest of his dial. On his last two clicks he gains the Sidestep movement power to move and attack, or attack and duck and cover.
Wolverine has long been the heart of the X-Men, and as such, he has the X-Men team ability to share clicks of healing with adjacent friendly figures using this team ability. Also, there is no doubt that he is an X-Man as X-Men is his only keyword. At 130 points, Wolverine brings a solid, close combat figure to any force you choose to include him on, with a trait that will give him more life than his dial suggests.
That’s all we have for now. Be sure to check back next week as we continue to preview figures from the upcoming Marvel HeroClix: X-Men – Days of Future Past gravity feed set. Up next, a mutant with a plan that makes the X-Men of the future reach into the past to stop it.
