Heroclix Preview Superman

The Eradicator!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Today we preview a oft misunderstood heir to the Kryptonian legacy.  Perhaps his methods are a bit extreme, maybe his sense of justice is a touch cold, but at the end of the day no one hounds evil-doers like this guy! We are pleased to present the Eradicator!

The Eradicator begins play doggedly pursuing villainy as he manuevers the battlefield via Running Shot.  His Penetrating/Psychic Blast allows him to bypass the defenses of his foes as he fires his concussive blasts from 7 (or fewer) squares away! Since he possesses the Superman Ally team ability, the Eradicator ignores hindering terrain for line of fire purposes so neither Stealth nor the terrain bonus will help his enemies once the Eradicator has their range!

Mid-dial the Eradicator switches tactics and exchanges Running Shot for Hypersonic Speed and he also gains Steal Energy (a useful power for staying on those clicks where mobility and versatility are arguably at their highest!).  The Eradicator’s ruthless means are further demonstrated by Exploit Weakness as he demonstrates his cold brand of justice!  The combintion of Steal Energy and Exploit Weakness is particularly useful since he is sure to always deal damage (and as a result, heal) to his opponents.

Towards the end of his dial, the Eradicator can attack multiple foes simulaneously with Energy Explosion, or he can heal via his Regeneration standard power.  Either way, the Eradicator is going to be useful on his late-dial as he finds new and exciting ways to stymie his foes!

Initially, the Eradicator relies on his Shape Change to confuse his foes, and his Kryptonian Clone, Computer Mind special power protects him from damage for most of his dial.  This special power grants the use of both Super Senses and Toughness, combining two great powers that work well together.

And what’s this? The Eradicator also possesses a Trait as well that will definitely increase his playability further! However, by decree of the Kryptonian High Council we are forbidden to share that information with you at this time! Both the Eradicator’s Trait and his bio must remain a secret…for now!

That’s all we have for today, but be sure to join us on Friday as we spotlight the architect of Coast City’s destruction and a fearsome enemy to both Superman and the Green Lantern Corps! Until then, keep your clix off their K.O.’s!
