Greetings HeroClix Fans!
For today’s Marvel HeroClix: Superior Foes of Spider-Man preview, we look at a pair of Heroes for Hire whose personalities and fighting styles differ in many ways, but also complement one another. Please welcome Luke Cage and Daniel Rand, better known as Power Man & Iron Fist!
As we mentioned, Power Man & Iron Fist have different fighting styles, with Power Man being the streetwise brawler and Iron Fist as the disciplined martial artist. Yet somehow our heroes manage to work together effectively to overcome the odds. To capture this harmonious clash of styles, Power Man & Iron Fist come into play with a trait called Martial Arts or Street Smarts? which lets you change their dial to suit your current needs. The first six clicks of Power Man & Iron Fist’s dial have red click numbers to represent Iron Fist; the last six clicks have blue numbers and represent Power Man. At the beginning of your turn, you may turn Power Man & Iron Fist’s dial to the same click number of the other color. Additionally, when Power Man & Iron Fist is on a red click number, they can use Combat Reflexes; when they’re on a blue click number, they can use Super Strength.
Moving beyond the Martial Arts or Street Smarts? trait, Power Man & Iron Fist’s dial features power sets that accurately capture their fighting styles. Iron Fist starts his side of the dial with Sidestep, Super Senses and Exploit Weakness and ends with Flurry and Precision Strike, while Power Man begins with Charge, Quake and Invulnerability and ends with Toughness and Close Combat Expert. Power Man & Iron Fist have the standard speed, attack and damage combat symbols, along with the Indomitable defense symbol to let them ignore pushing damage.
Power Man & Iron Fist has a point value of 50, which leaves you plenty of room to include teammates. For themed team play, Power Man & Iron Fist has the Avengers, Heroes for Hire and Marvel Knights keywords to help you find just the right teammates. As close combatants, Power Man & Iron Fist would benefit from having teammates on their force that can shoot. Characters that can use the Carry ability would also be a boon to Power Man & Iron Fist as they can transport the pair around the battle map.
