Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Today we turn the spotlight to a character who was originally assigned to spy on Earth for the Kree Empire. Along the way, he became one of Earth’s greatest protectors and his death was mourned by virtually every hero on the planet. Please welcome Captain Marvel!
Captain Marvel hits the map at 141 points and also has a trait, Fresh From the Negative Zone! This trait boosts Captain Marvel’s attack and defense values by +1 if he is brought into play via the Alter Ego ability found on Marvel HeroClix: Hulk Rick Jones. If Captain Marvel is added to a force through the Alter Ego ability, he begins his dial on click number six and has a point value of 48 points.
Running Shot on Captain Marvel’s first click allows him move into position then make a ranged attack against those who threaten his adopted home! Defensively, Captain Marvel has the Indomitable combat ability and Impervious on his first click to respectively ignore pushing damage and soak up most or all of the damage from any attacks.
Once Captain Marvel has taken damage, he switches from Impervious to Invulnerability for his next two clicks as his defensive power of choice. On click two, Captain Marvel maintains Running Shot and also gains Energy Explosion. Mid-dial, Captain Marvel changes tactics gain and his powerful Nega-Bands grant him Pulse Wave for two clicks. In his damage slot, Captain Marvel’s Cosmic Awareness kicks in and he also gains two clicks of Probability Control. Defensively, the former Kree captain switches from Invulnerability to Super Senses to help him evade attacks altogether!
Mid-to-late-dial Phasing/Teleport lets Captain Marvel freely maneuver around the battle map. He also ditches Pulse Wave in favor of Energy Explosion for three of his last four clicks. Defensively, Captain Marvel cycles between Toughness and Invulnerability before settling on Super Senses on his final click. On Captain Marvel’s last two clicks, he again turns to the power of his Nega-Bands and can dish out more damage with his ranged attacks, thanks to a focused photon blast (Ranged Combat Expert)!
Captain Marvel has a range of eight and can target two characters with his ranged attacks. He makes a great addition to forces that share his keywords: Avengers, Cosmic, Kree, Negative Zone, and Soldier!
