Captain America Heroclix Preview

Sacre’ Bleu!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Today we bring you that most rouguish of mercenaries, the proud son of Marseille, the master of the French-kickboxing martial art known as savate; Batroc!

At a mere 52 points, Batroc makes an excellent addition to your teams as a secondary attacker and “harassment” piece. Batroc’s “Leeping” Kick special power enables him to move with impunity (via Leap/Climb) and make a close combat attack once he’s concluded his “leeping”!

Batroc’s refined martial instincts are represented by his Combat Reflexes, which helps protect him in melee.  Mid- to late-dial, Batroc picks up standard Leap/Climb while his Savate Master special power allows Batroc to use Flurry against opponents without Combat Relfexes or the ability to Leap/Climb themselves.

With very consistent combat values, this Experienced-level figure will have your opponent exclaiming “Zut alors!” as Batroc demonstrates his uncanny martial ability on the battlefield.  Batroc’s powers make him well-suited for striking behind enemy lines and attacking your opponent’s support pieces while the rest of your force attack from the front lines!

That’s all we have for today but be sure to join us later in the week as we spotlight a former flame from Captain America’s past with a penchant for using zirconium octahedrons in combat.  Until then, keep on clixing!
