Greetings HeroClix Fans!
For our second HeroClix prize preview of the 2013 convention season, we decided to get into the spirit of things; Gentleman Ghost again makes his appearance in HeroClix and brings along with him one of the new pink powers found on the 2013 HeroClix Powers and Abilities Card in Precision Shot.
James Craddock was a highwayman and robber in England who was lynched but his spirit rose again as the Gentleman Ghost. Thanks to his new form, Gentleman Ghost could raise Vengeful Ghosts (Trait) to strike back against those who would hurt him. Thanks to this Trait, Gentleman Ghost is able to bring Vengeful Ghost bystander tokens onto the battlefield to tie up your opponents or to attack them with Exploit Weakness. The Vengeful Ghost bystander can also maneuver freely thanks to Phase/Teleport (when was the last time you saw a ghost stopped by a wall?) while Super Senses represents its more incorporeal nature.
Like any good (or should we say evil?) shade, Gentleman Ghost’s Invisible, Intangible (Special Power) to hide in the shadows using Stealth and then move using Phasing/Teleport to get anywhere you need to go. And if someone is foolish enough to let Gentleman Ghost get close, he can use his Chilling Touch (Precision Strike) to attack those who might normally evade his attack or mastermind the damage on to others.
If that’s not enough, thanks to I’ve Seen the Beyond (Outwit), Gentleman Ghost can counter powers that would cause him trouble. Over time, this Ghost has Learned a Few Tricks (Perplex) to help him adjust his combat values to the fight but if all else fails; he can shoot it out with his Flintlock Pistols (Ranged Combat Expert).
Finally, since his spirit can never truly rest, Gentleman Ghost is Indomitable and will come back to haunt those who attack him with his Mystics team ability.
Gen Con Indy is the first convention that this figure will be available at as a prize. Tune in later this week as we see that romance is in the air during this convention season.
