Greetings HeroClix Fans!
It’s time for to kick off preview for the upcoming Marvel HeroClix: Superior Foes of Spider-Man. This 5-figure booster set will be releasing this August but Marvel HeroClix: Superior Foes of Spider-Man Pre-release Events kick off at the end of July. Today let’s take a look at a popular Spider-Man villain that has plagued New York and it’s heroes with his psychotic killing sprees, Carnage!
The offspring of Venom’s Alien Symbiote and a product of the twisted mind of Cletus Kasady, Eddie Brock’s serial killer cellmate at Ryker’s Island prison, Carnage has no regard for life and kills for the fun of it. He has an especially reserved hatred for Spider-Man and his ‘daddy’ Venom.
At 100 points Carnage is a close combat whirlwind of damage dealing mayhem. To get around the map, he has Improved Movement: Ignores Elevated. He shares the same trait that all the Symbiote wearing characters have in the Marvel HeroClix: Superior Foes of Spider-Man set, Alien Symbiote. This trait lets him use Plasticity and Shape Change, and also allows him to automatically break away. His Sadistic Slaughter trait gives Carnage some unique action economy and healing features. When he damages an opposing character of lower points with an attack, you do not place any action tokens on him for the action and, when he KO’s a character, he heals 1 click, or 2 clicks if they were lower points than him. With his dial and powers, there are good chances you’ll benefit from both scenarios!
Carnage heads into the fight with Charge, a full dial of Blades/Claws/Fangs, and Combat Reflexes. Mid-dial he gets even more deadly with Flurry and a bump in his defense value with Toughness. When the fighting gets him down near KO, he goes back to Charge and Combat Reflexes, but also adds Exploit Weakness to make even the toughest of heroes his victim. For keywords, this Monster heads up his own storyline, Maximum Carnage.
That’s all for today, HeroClix fans! Stay tuned as we continue to preview more of Spider-Man’s allies and villains from the upcoming Marvel HeroClix: Superior Foes of Spider-Man set! Be sure to check the WizKids Info Network (WIN) to find Pre-Release and Release Day events near you!
