Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Today we continue our previews of the Marvel HeroClix: Avengers Movie set as we conclude our tour of duty with WWII’s greatest military unit, the Howling Commandos and check in with their newest addition, Captain America!
Captain America begins play getting right into the thick of things utilizing 3 clicks of Charge. An opening click of Invulnerability provides protection from counter attack, followed up by 3 clicks of Toughness. Captain America also has three clicks of a special power called Howlers, Let’s Go! in his attack slot. Howlers, Let’s Go! allows Captain America to use Leadership normally, or it lets him remove up to 2 action tokens instead of 1 if both tokens are removed from adjacent friendly character(s) with the Howling Commandos keyword.
On the back half of his dial, in his movement slot, Captain America gets 3 clicks of a special power called I’ll Save You, No Matter What, that says if a friendly character of a lower point value took damage since your last turn, Captain America can move using Leap/Climb as a free action. Close Combat Expert replaces his damage special power. And Captain America closes out his dial with Combat Reflexes on his last two clicks.
Captain America possess the Indomitable ability, allowing him to ignore pushing damage, and at 70 points Captain America will be the ideal leader for his expert squad as he possesses the Howling Commandos, Past, and Soldier keywords. Captain America will be an asset to most forces he is played on, and since he comes in the Howling Commandos Team Pack he is sure to have friends to join up with right away!
