Avengers Movie Heroclix Preview

The Sentinel of Liberty… Reborn!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Today we begin our previews of the Marvel HeroClix: Avengers Movie set! What better way to start the previews than with the First Avenger, Steve Rogers, better known to the world as Captain America!

Captain America begins play being able to Charge into combat.  Once engaged with the enemy, Captain America’s special power Behind the Shield will keep him protected.   Behind the Shield  grants Captain America both Toughness and Combat Reflexes, as well as Energy Shield Deflection so long as he has 0 action tokens.  The Indomitable ability ensures Captain America can act without fear of pushing damage, while Leadership potentially allows for an extra action during your turn.

After his initial two clicks of Charge, Captain America switches to Running Shot to better utilize his 6 range.  At this point in his dial, he picks up his attack special power for the rest of his dial.  The Great Escape allows all friendly characters to automatically break away for the rest of the turn if Captain America successfully breaks away!  Meanwhile, Leadership gives way for Perplex, enabling Captain America to assist his force for most of his dial’s remainder.

Late dial, Behind the Shield finely gives way for Combat Reflexes.  Offensively, Captain America gains Flurry.  At this point, his attack values start to decline but this is potentially offset by his damage special power The Big Three.  The Big Three enables Captain America to roll 3 dice for attack rolls and then choose 1 die to ignore!  For 90 points, and with a good selection of keywords, Captain America will definitely find himself included in many team builds and strategies.

Thanks for reading, and join us again soon as we continue to explore the Avengers Movie expansion, and be sure to come back on Friday as we continue our previews of Marvel HeroClix: Galactic Guardians.
