Greetings HeroClix fans, and welcome to another preview for the upcoming Marvel HeroClix: Uncanny X-Men set! Today, we’re taking a look at a man who has been both the biggest enemy and greatest ally of the X-Men, Magneto!
With a complex, emotional backstory, Erik Lehnsherr has seen his nature evolve from something truly combative and villainous, to a man intent on repenting for his past actions against man and mutant-kind alike.
First, Magneto has a trait that makes use of the a ClixFX base— which is included with his figure— called Magnetic Shield for my Allies. This trait allows you to give Magneto a power action to attach the Magnetic Shield (represented by the ClixFX base) to another friendly character by placing it under that character’s figure. As long as it is attached, that character can use Energy Shield/Deflection. However, when that character takes damage from a ranged attack or Magnetois KO’d, the Magnetic Shield marker is removed from that character.
In addition to that trait, Magneto has a special power called Magnetic Field on his first three clicks of defense. This power states that Magneto can use both Energy Shield/Deflection and Toughness. In addition to that special power, he also possesses the following standard powers – Running Shot, Force Blast, Telekinesis, Precision Strike, Willpower, Enhancement, and Ranged Combat Expert. There’s no doubt that Magneto is a ranged combatant, so take advantage of his high attack and damage values with his range of 8 squares to rain down destruction on your opponents!
That’s all for today, HeroClix fans! We hope you enjoy this take on the Master of Magnetism. Join us next time for another exciting preview from upcoming sets. Until then, shape change for the win!
