Chaos War Preview

Time Travelling Despot and Avengers Foe – Kang!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

As a special bonus preview, we are pleased (if not a little intimidated) to present an all-too frequent foe to the Avengers from beyond time, Kang!

Last seen way back in Marvel HeroClix: Supernova, this self-proclaimed Conqueror lives up to his reputation!  Early dial Phase/Teleport allows Kang to maneuver into position without concern for terrain or opposing characters, while the Indomitable ability allows you to capitalize on his mobility with an opening 12 attack and 4 damage! And should you decide to, the Masters of Evil team ability allows you to use Kang for a third turn in a row; blast away at his enemies again with that impressive first click and gain access to Running Shot and Penetrating/Psychic Blast on Kang’s second click!

Mid-dial, Kang switches tactics slightly as he gains Outwit and the Timeline Reset special power.  Timeline Reset allows Kang to remove action tokens from friendly figures 151 points or less, all for just the cost of a power action!  Now, figures that already acted that same turn cannot act again, but Timeline Reset allows you to maximize your action potential with friendly figures that have not already taken non-free actions.

Kang’s initial Impervious is replaced by Toughness, but swings back up to Invulnerability while Kang enjoys a parallel upswing in his attack value and Pulse Wave! Late-dial Ranged Combat Expert keeps Kang’s potential damage output at a respectable level while end-dial Regeneration allows Kang to potentially stay in the fight.

Last and certainly not least Kang’s Trait, Come Back After I’m Rested and Try Again, allows him to use (uncounterable) Probability Control on his own attack rolls!

At 151 points and armed with the Future, Past, Ruler, Scientist and Warrior keywords, Kang is sur eto make his presence felt on the battlefield!

That’s all we have for today, but be sure to join us next week.  Until then, keep your CLix off their K.O.’s!
