Avengers Movie Heroclix Preview

Wa-Hoo! The Howlers Are Here!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Today we continue our previews of the Marvel HeroClix: Avengers movie set as we visit WWII’s greatest military unit, the Howling Commandos and check in with Gabe Jones!

On the front half of his dial, Gabe Jones starts the game with Stealth, setting himself up in hindering terrain to keep safe, while Willpower lets him act two turns in a row without pushing.  This combination of powers works well with his damage special power, Grenade!  This special power allows Gabe Jones to be given a power action to choose a target square within 5 squares and line of fire (ignoring characters for line of fire purposes).  Make a ranged combat attack targeting all characters occupying or adjacent to the target square, then deal 2 damage to each hit character.  Wash.  Rinse.  Repeat.

On the back half of his dial, Gabe Jones switches tactics as he picks up Running Shot to get a bit more reach out of his 7 range, while Energy Shield Deflection makes him harder to shoot back at. Gabe Jones also assumes the role of combat medic as he has two clicks of end dial Support.

Gabe Jones also possess a trait called We’ll Remember You, Cap allowing Gabe Jones to increase his attack value by +1 if a friendly figure named Captain America was KO’ed this game.  This should be easy to build a team around as Gabe Jones possess the Howling Commandos, Past, and Soldier keywords.  At an economical 45 points, Gabe Jones will be an asset to any force 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!

Thanks for reading, and join us next Wednesday as we continue to explore the Marvel HeroClix: Avengers Movie expansion as we visit the halls of Asgard to check in with one most Voluminous.  Be sure to come back Friday as we continue our previews of Marvel Heroclix: Galactic Guardians as we look at a former court executioner granted power beyond his dreams.
