Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron

Meet the Avengers: Age of Ultron (Part 2)

Welcome back, HeroClix fans, to the second half of our exciting series of previews for the Marvel HeroClix Avengers: Age of Ultron set, based on the surefire hit of the summer! Last time, we checked in with Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man Mk. 43, and today we’ll be digging deeper into the powers of the other core members of the Avengers – Hawkeye, Black Widow, and the Hulk!

Like their fellow Avengers, all three characters come to the battle with the Avengers Initiative team ability, allowing them the advantageous position of ignoring hindering terrain for movement and line of fire. Black Widow and Hawkeye in particular will take great advantage of this, as each comes with a trait that grants them permanent move and attack powers. Hulk, of course, is a rampaging brute, and will make use of the team ability with an entire dial where he’s able to use Charge, but more on that later.

Black Widow, Avengers, Age of Ultron

To kick things off, Black Widow opens with Improved Movement – Ignores Characters, which means that very little will be getting in Natasha’s way as she cuts a path through your opponents’ ranks. She also has a trait called Just Like Budapest All Over Again, which grants her the aforementioned use of Charge. With that, she also has an adjacency bonus with Hawkeye, where each modifies their defense value by +1 when they’re next to each other. In addition to that, she has a special attack power called Escrima Sticks and Widow Stings that really showcases her fluid fighting style, granting her the use of both Incapacitate and Quake. Finally, her special damage power, The Deadly Widow, states that she can use Close Combat Expert. With that, however, is this bonus – if she has no action tokens, she can either choose to activate it as a close combat action, or she may instead modify her attack value by an additional +1 when using it!

Hawkeye, Avengers, Age of Ultron

Her partner in all things espionage, Hawkeye, has a very similar structure to Black Widow. Being an expert marksman, he begins with Improved Targeting – Ignores Characters. Coupling with Natasha’s trait, Clint has one called You and I Remember Budapest Very Differently, which grants him a full dial of Running Shot. Much like Black Widow, he also has a qualifying bonus when adjacent to her, in which both Hawkeye and Black Widow modify their attack by +1 when they’re fighting side by side. He also has a special attack power called Explosive Arrows, which grants him the use of Energy Explosion, as well as Improved Targeting – Ignores Blocking Terrain, with the additional bonus of destroying any blocking terrain along the line of fire to the target. To close him out, he also has a special damage power called The Deadly Hawk, which grants him the use of Ranged Combat Expert. He also gains the same option as Black Widow does, wherein if he has no action tokens, he may either activate the power as a ranged combat action, or may instead modify his attack value by an additional +1 when using it.

Hulk, Avengers, Age of Ultron

Finally, we come to the SMASHing monster of the Avengers, the incredible Hulk! An indomitable force of destruction, Hulk can be run at either 250 points or 150 points. Right off the bat, he begins with a trait called Enormous Green Rage Monster, which gives Hulk both Battle Fury and Super Strength. With that, however, comes a major bonus – whenever he is the target of an attack, you will place a Rage token on his card. You are then able to give Hulk a free action, and you may choose a combat value. For each Rage token you remove from his card, you will increase the value of Movement, Attack, or Defense by 1 until your next turn. If you’d like to increase his damage, you will instead have to remove 2 Rage tokens to increase that by 1. He’s truly a force of nature, and these Rage tokens will make him an even more deadly force of destruction for your team!

Hulk also has an array of special powers that take advantage of both his trait and team ability. On movement, he has a power called Hulk SMASH! that grants him the use of Charge. However, when using it, he doesn’t have to cut his movement value in half – and moving 8, 9, or 10 squares across the map to attack while ignoring hindering terrain is a deadly combination! In addition to that, he has a special damage power called You’re Making Hulk Angry! This is a stop click power, triggered on three separate occasions. When this power appears, you will stop turning the dial and roll a d6 that can’t be rerolled. On a 1-2, you will turn the dial to click 11. On 3-4, you’ll stay on that click, and on a 5-6, you can choose to stay or go to click 11. That 11th click is a powerful one, and gives Hulk a special defensive power called Raging Out! This powers allows for him to use Impervious and Improved Movement – Ignores and Destroys Blocking Terrain as he moves through it. In addition to that, after rolling for Impervious, if Hulk would take damage, he instead removes a Rage token for each click of damage that Hulk would take. If he takes more damage than the number of Rage tokens on his card, he’s KO’d.

That closes out the previews for the Marvel HeroClix Avengers: Age of Ultron movie starter set! Be sure to pick this up and to be on the lookout for both the hobby shop and mass-market exclusive gravity feed sets – each has 5 exclusive dials available only in those locations! Until then, keep clixin’!

Marvel HeroClix: The Invincible Iron Man Preview

Marvel HeroClix The Invincible Iron Man: Dreadknight!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

We are pleased to bring you another preview from our next Marvel HeroClix release, The Invincible Iron Man!  Today we take a look at Latverian scientist whose costumed identity was used by Hawkeye to infiltrate the Thunderbolts.  Please welcome the Dreadknight!

035-Dreadknight

Dreadknight comes into play at 106 points, has the wing speed symbol, and a range of three squares.  Dreadknight also has the Minions of Doom team ability, which makes him a Wild Card.  For ease of team building, Dreadknight has the Armor, Frightful Four, Scientist and Thunderbolts keywords.

The power set on Dreadknight’s first three clicks is identical: Charge in his speed slot as he rides into battle on the Hellhorse given to him by Victoria Frankenstein and Toughness in his defense slot to represent his medieval suit of full-body armor.  In his attack slot is a special power called Lance Skewer which lets him use Blades/Claws/Fangs.  Additionally, give Dreadknight a close combat action and he may target any opposing character within his range and line of fire.  When Dreadknight does, he must roll a d6 for Blades/Claws/Fangs.

On Dreadknight’s fourth click, he retains Charge and Toughness, but drops Lance Skewer for standard use of Blades/Claws/Fangs.

As we move to Dreadknight’s last three clicks, we see that Flurry replaces Charge, while Blades/Claws/Fangs and Toughness remain.  Dreadknight also gains a special power in his damage slot called Revert: Hawkeye, which allows you to replace him with a character named Hawkeye.  The replacement character must be of equal or less points than Dreadknight and begins play two less clicks from its starting line.  The replacement character also can’t be given an action this turn.

A viable option for the Revert: Hawkeye power is #039 Hawkeye from the Marvel HeroClix: Chaos War set, who comes in at 98 points.  On this Hawkeye’s third click, his dial features the My Criminal Past special power which lets him use Running Shot and StealthHawkeye also has a range of nine squares and three targets for his ranged attacks.  The Knockout Gas Arrow special power in Hawkeye’s attack slot lets him use Energy Explosion with the added bonus of giving action tokens to characters that are hit by the attack.  Energy Shield/Deflection and Ranged Combat Expert round out Hawkeye’s powers on click three.

Thanks for reading.  Please join next time as we uncover more secrets in our next Marvel HeroClix: The Invincible Iron Man preview.

Marvel HeroClix: Fear Itself Preview

Marvel HeroClix Fear Itself: Hawkeye!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Welcome to another preview from the upcoming Marvel HeroClix: Fear Itself storyline organized play series! Today we set our mark on Hawkeye.

019 Hawkeye

As we start our look at the top of Hawkeye’s combat dial, we see he possesses three combat abilities. He is a Flier, a Sharpshooter, and he is Indomitable. Hawkeye also has a range of 8 squares with a single target. All for a starting cost of just 135 points.

Hawkeye’s dial is exactly what one should expect: A couple of clicks of Running Shot in his speed slot. Some Toughness and Energy Shield/Deflection on defense, and his damage is mainly covered by Enhancement and Ranged Combat Expert.

Now let’s get to the fun with Hawkeye’s special attack power, Mighty Bow. Hawkeye can use Incapacitate as if he had three targets. When he does and after actions resolve, roll a d6. On a result of 4-6, each hit character is dealt damage equal to the number of action tokens they have.

On click number 5 Hawkeye has the Mighty Revert: Hawkeye special power, which reads: “When turning the dial, if this click is revealed due to damage taken from an opponent’s attack, stop turning the dial. Give Hawkeye a free action and replace him with a figure with the same name and less points that’s the same number of clicks from its starting line. That character can’t be given an action this turn and modifies its attack and damage values by +1 for the rest of the game. This power can’t be ignored.”

Hawkeye has four keywords, and each will make it possible for him to use Additional Team Abilities (or “ATA’s”).

With the keyword “Avengers” he would have access to four ATAs, including ATA 056 Avengers (Heroic Age). For an extra 2 points you could make it so that after Hawkeye is given a move action, you would roll a d6 and on the result of a 6 remove an action token from him.

Next, Hawkeye has “Great Lakes Avengers”, this ATA will make it so during an attack made by Hawkeye, any opposing character can’t use Probability Control unless a friendly character has already used Probability Control during this attack.

The Mighty ATA

Third is the Marvel HeroClix: Fear Itself ATA, The Mighty. When Hawkeye is using this team ability and hits an opposing character and the attack roll is doubles, place a Mighty token on this card for each 100 points of the game’s build total. Before any attack roll you may remove one Mighty token from this card and modify the attacking character’s attack value by -1 for this attack. It also states that when Hawkeye is using this ATA that he would modify his attack value by +1 when attacking a character using The Worthy ATA or possessing The Worthy keyword.

Hawkeye’s fourth and last keyword is Thunderbolts and that ATA allows Hawkeye to at the beginning of the game, choose any Marvel team ability other than an ATA, a wild card team ability, or a team ability that can’t  be used by wildcards. Hawkeye can now use the chosen team ability if he couldn’t already.

When using Hawkeye in your sealed Marvel HeroClix: Fear Itself tournaments you would be limited to only using The Mighty ATA, but after Fear Itself is where the fun begins. Some team building could start with Hawkeye on a Thunderbolts theme team and adding CW #041 Baron Zemo. Then, with Baron Zemo’s The Thunderbolts Gambit trait, add in the rookie version of FI #024 Greithoth. Since Greithoth has the Masters of Evil keyword he would gain the Thunderbolts keyword and ATA.

Let’s see where our cost is: Hawkeye is 135 points and CW #041 Baron Zemo is 100 points. Add FI #024r Greithoth at 150 and 8 points for each character assigned the ATA, and you’ve got a 409-point force! This is just a start; where would you take it from here?

Thanks for reading! Please join us for more upcoming and exciting Marvel HeroClix: Fear Itself previews. Until then, Shape Change for the Win!!

Chaos War Heroclix Preview

The Sharpshooting Avenger – Hawkeye!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Today’s Marvel HeroClix: Chaos War preview showcases one of the most popular mainstays of the Avengers, the mighty archer Hawkeye!


Hawkeye begins play moving into position with the cover of Stealth to prepare him to strike, and when he is ready, spring into action with Running Shot!  Both powers are granted to him by the use of his movement special power My Criminal PastWillpower on his first couple of clicks will allow Hawkeye to get into combat all the quicker.  Hawkeye also has an opening click of Leadership to showcase his years of leading various Avengers teams as well as the Thunderbolts.  On his second click, Hawkeye trades Leadership for his marksmanship as he picks up Range Combat Expert.

Mid-dial, Hawkeye sees the last click of his speed special power as he trades My Criminal Past for mobility with Leap/Climb, and Willpower gives way to Energy Shield Deflection, making him harder to hit from range.  Range Combat Expert remains through this stretch of dial, and he picks up his attack special power, Knockout Gas Arrow.  This power allows Hawkeye to use Energy Explosion. When he does, after actions resolve give one action token to each character hit by the attack.  This power pairs very well with Hawkeye’s 9 range with three targets.  Hawkeye stays fairly consistent with his power set at the end of his dial as he maintains his attack special power, Leap/Climb, and Range Combat Expert.  Willpower returns for his last two clicks.

Hawkeye possesses the Sharpshooter combat ability to make his range combat abilities dangerous even up close.   Showcasing his ability to fit in with multiple teams, he has the Spider-Man Ally team ability.   He has many great named theme team options with the Avengers, Great Lakes Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D., and Thunderbolts keywords.  For 98 points, Hawkeye has aggressive attack numbers, with an opening 12 attack, and only one click of single digit attack.  With his potential damage output, Hawkeye is sure to be a valuable member of whatever force you include him on!

Thanks for reading!  Don’t forget to come back next Friday when our Marvel HeroClix: Chaos War set previews continue when we check in with a villain who was not worthy to wield his family’s hereditary weapon!
