Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Today we have a team building article featuring characters from the DC HeroClix: Superman/Wonder Woman set. Naturally, we’ll be including Wonder Woman and a couple of her allies with the Amazon keyword to make a 300-point team. First, we’ll look at the individual characters then offer options on how to use them together as an Amazon Team. Up first to bat is #018 Wonder Woman.
The uncommon Wonder Woman from the Superman/Wonder Woman set comes in at 125 points and is a great close attacker who can provide some support mid-dial in the form of Perplex. Wonder Woman has a trait called Deflecting Bullets which lets her use Energy Shield/Deflection and can potentially deal an opponent some damage if they miss a ranged attack against her. Wonder Woman’s top clicks of Charge and Super Strength allows her to quickly get into a fight and deal extra damage with objects, while Impervious potentially lets her shrug off all damage dealt to her.
Next up is Artemis, who also has a point value of 125 but comes with a short range of 4 squares. Artemis gains some protection from Outwit and Probability Control from her Divine Aura trait, and can potentially avoid attacks on her first two clicks by using Shape Change. On those same clicks Artemis has a pair of special powers: Amazonian Warfare, which lets her use Charge and Stealth, and I Love a Challenge, which boosts her attack and damage values by +1 and makes any damage dealt penetrating when she targets only the opposing force’s highest-point character.
Finally, we round out our force with the Amazon, a 45-point close combatant who starts her dial with the combination of Charge and Super Strength, then follows up with two clicks featuring Flurry and Blades/Claws/Fangs. Amazon gains a +1 to her attack value when she’s adjacent to a teammate with the Amazon keyword thanks to her trait, Amazons of Themyscira.
This themed trio brings our Amazon Team to 295 points and gains a +3 when rolling to determine map choice. If you do win map choice, keep in mind that this team relies on Artemis when it comes to ranged attacks and both she and Wonder Woman have the Wing speed symbol so they can carry Amazon if needed. You’ll want to keep Amazon near one of her teammates so she can gain the attack bonus from the Amazons of Themyscira trait. If map choice includes hindering terrain, take advantage of Artemis’ use of Stealth and her short range to shoot opponents who wander too close.
With only three figures on this force, there’s a good chance your opponent will outnumber you so don’t forget Wonder Woman’s The Odds are Against Me trait, which generates Outnumbered Tokens that can be redeemed two at a time to make a close or ranged attack. Outnumbered Tokens can also be spent to give Wonder Woman Willpower for a turn, thanks to her other trait, Standing Tall.
Thanks for reading! Good luck dominating the tabletop with the strategies from this Amazon Team. Join us again as we highlight more strategies and team builds from the DC HeroClix: Superman/Wonder Woman set!
