Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Today’s Marvel HeroClix: Avengers movie preview features the master archer and S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Clint Barton, better known to the world as Hawkeye!
Hawkeye begins play taking the action to your opponent with Running Shot and his 7 range. For the first four clicks of his dial his attack special power, Found the Weak Spot, deals penetrating damage whenever Hawkeye’s attack roll is 10 or higher! After his opening click, Hawkeye switches to Leap/Climb for a click, and then he alternates between the two powers through his mid-dial.
Further demonstrating his skill with ranged attacks, Hawkeye also possesses the Sharp Shooter combat ability. Even when he is based by an opposing figure, Hawkeye’s Found the Weak Spot special power is still deadly, and he can ignore opposing characters for line of fire! Furthermore, Hawkeye also possesses the Avengers Initiative team ability allows him to treat hindering terrain as clear terrain for movement and line of fire purposes; unless they’re hiding behind a wall(or something similar), Hawkeye can target almost any opposing figure on the battlefield!
Late-dial, Hawkeye remains mobile with Leap/Climb on his last two clicks as he gets to where he can do the most good with Range Combat Expert, or makes a tactical retreat to get some support. An entire dial of Energy Shield Deflection helps to make Hawkeye a tough target from a distance.
Hawkeye has the Avengers, Martial Artist, and S.H.I.E.L.D keywords, allowing for some solid theme team options. At on;y 75 points, Hawkeye will be an asset on any force he is included on.
