Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Today we preview a figure never before clixed and long asked for. An Olympic swimmer who had his DNA blended with that of a tiger shark and Namor the Sub-Mainer, he is the savage Tiger Shark!
Tiger Shark begins play with both Charge and Blades/Claws/Fangs which makes him quite an imposing figure. Better yet, if he begins or ends his movement in water terrain, he can Charge up to his full speed value using his special power Blood in the Water! Now that he has wounded his prey, and marked them due to his trait, The Scent of Blood, if they are knocked back or break away, Tiger Shark can be placed next to them at the end of his turn if he is within 3 squares. Lastly, should your opponent choose to engage Tiger Shark, he is protected by Invulnerability.
Mid-dial, Tiger Shark switches to Super Strength while still being able to use his special power and moves to Toughness to keep him relatively safe. Late dial, his special power gives way to regular Charge for the rest of his dial as he switches between Blades/Claws/Fang and Super Strength. Toughness also is replaced by Super Senses as he tries to avoid damage altogether.
The Masters of Evil team ability enables Tiger Shark to act every turn by taking a click of pushing damage. A large selection of keywords will make it easy for Tiger Shark to find his way onto many theme teams, and his aggressive power set and consistent combat values will make sure he finds his way onto others.
That’s all we have for today but be sure to join us later this week as we continue to explore the next expansion from Marvel HeroClix, The Incredible Hulk!
