Greetings HeroClix Fans!
These days, the subject of our latest preview has enjoyed a history of working with teams and on his his own. But there was also a time when Wolverine was a member of the all-new Fantastic Four, alongside Spider-Man, Ghost Rider, and Joe Fixit!
Being the best at what he does, Wolverine enters play with a trait, My First Non-X Team, which boosts his attack value by +1 if other friendly characters on the map possess three or more different team symbols among them!
Wolverine also starts with a special power, Lunge, on the front half of his dial. Whenever Wolverine is given a close combat action, Lunge allows him to automatically break away and move up to two squares before the attack is made! Mid-dial, Wolverine switches to Charge in order to rush toward an opponent and attack!
Speaking of attacks, Wolverine’s attack values remain fairly steady and unassuming but starting on his third click he unsheathes his razor-sharp Adamantium claws (Blades/Claws/Fangs) and can potentially do six damage with his attacks!
When Wolverine’s claws are out, he often goes into a berserker rage. This is represented by two clicks of Battle Fury at the middle of his dial. Wolverine opens with two clicks of Exploit Weakness because he is the best at what he does, after all!
Defensively, Wolverine starts out with Toughness to help him absorb damage. He then switches to Super Senses in order to evade attacks altogether! At the end of his dial, Wolvie’s healing factor kicks in and he gains Regeneration!
Wolverine has the keywords and team abilities for the Fantastic Four and X-Men, making him an excellent candidate for many teams. At only 70 points, Wolverine also leaves plenty of room for other allies on your force!
That’s all we have for today but join us next time when we reveal more secrets from Marvel HeroClix: Hulk! Until then, keep your clix off their KOs!
