Greetings HeroClix fans! Today, we’re taking another look at a piece from the Marvel HeroClix: Civil War Storyline Organized Play event! Our piece today features a classic Avenger, as well as member of the Young Avengers – Vision!
An 80-point piece, Vision is best suited to move freely about the map, using his range of five squares to pick troublesome opposing figures off from a distance. Of course, that’s not all he’s built for! For example, if you run him on a Young Avengers themed team, you can take advantage of his trait, Protect Cassie No Matter What. This trait provides a unique modifier, stating that if Vision is adjacent to a friendly character named Stature, you modify both of their attack values by +1!
Vision also makes use of some significant standard powers. As hinted at earlier, Vision begins the game with two clicks featuring both Phasing/Teleport and Penetrating/Psychic Blast – which are especially useful when positioning and getting him ready to attack characters with damage reducing powers, like Iron Man or Ms. Marvel. His final two clicks also bring two powers well suited to work together, Charge and Exploit Weakness. Other standard powers on his dial include Precision Strike, Shape Change, and Super Senses.
One of the Vision’s signature abilities is his ability to become lighter than air or harder than steel, which is represented on his dial by his special power Density Control. Appearing on his first three clicks of defense, Density Control states that at the beginning of your turn, you may choose one of these combinations until you choose again: Vision can use Super Senses and modifies his defense value by +1, or Vision may instead use Invulnerability and Super Strength!
A versatile combatant, able to damage in either close combat or ranged combat situations, Vision is a significant addition to any team, and is able to be played on Anti-Registration, Robot, or Young Avengers themed teams. He has a diverse set of abilities, and can suitably fill any role you need at any given time!
