Greetings HeroClix Fans!
For today’s DC HeroClix: Justice League preview, we turn the spotlight to a foul-tempered, chain-smoking sorcerer who makes his long-awaited debut to the game. Please welcome a member of Justice League Dark, John Constantine!
John Constantine hits the battle map with a trait, Riding the Synchronicity Highway, which makes him a Wild Card and pokes fun at his resemblance to a certain lead singer of The Police. In addition, he also possesses the Mystics team ability to make his opponents think twice about harming him since they’ll take one unavoidable damage in retaliation if they do so.
Although John Constantine rarely uses magical spells in combat, he does start his dial with a special power in his attack slot, Mystical Wards, which prevents other characters from using Probability Control. John Constantine, however, isn’t one to play by the rules. While denying others from using Probability Control, he can use the power since it appears in the damage slots of his first and third clicks. How’s that for a slice of fried gold?
In the damage slots of his second and fourth clicks, John Constantine gains another special power which represents the cynical Brit’s tendency to rely on his wits, his extensive knowledge of the occult, and the strengths and weaknesses of others. This special power, Sheer Cunning, allows John Constantine to use Outwit and Perplex.
Willpower appears in the defensive slots of John Constantine’s first two clicks as he throws caution to the wind in his pursuit of a life of sorcery and danger. John Constantine’s blood is tainted as a result of a blood transfusion from a demon and an intimate encounter with a succubus. His blood has shown itself to have healing and protective properties, which are represented on his last click as Regeneration.
At 59 points, John Constantine leaves plenty of room on a force for attackers and other support players. His keywords (Justice League and Mystical) also allow for some ease in team building.
We hope you enjoyed today’s preview! Please join us again as we continue exploring more exciting HeroClix releases! Until then, keep your Clix off their KO’s!
