Marvel HeroClix: Civil War Storyline OP – Vision

Greetings HeroClix fans! Today, we’re taking another look at a piece from the Marvel HeroClix: Civil War Storyline Organized Play event! Our piece today features a classic Avenger, as well as member of the Young Avengers – Vision!

Marvel HeroClix: Civil War Storyline Organized Play - Vision

An 80-point piece, Vision is best suited to move freely about the map, using his range of five squares to pick troublesome opposing figures off from a distance. Of course, that’s not all he’s built for! For example, if you run him on a Young Avengers themed team, you can take advantage of his trait, Protect Cassie No Matter What. This trait provides a unique modifier, stating that if Vision is adjacent to a friendly character named Stature, you modify both of their attack values by +1!

Vision also makes use of some significant standard powers. As hinted at earlier, Vision begins the game with two clicks featuring both Phasing/Teleport and Penetrating/Psychic Blast – which are especially useful when positioning and getting him ready to attack characters with damage reducing powers, like Iron Man or Ms. Marvel. His final two clicks also bring two powers well suited to work together, Charge and Exploit Weakness. Other standard powers on his dial include Precision Strike, Shape Change, and Super Senses.

One of the Vision’s signature abilities is his ability to become lighter than air or harder than steel, which is represented on his dial by his special power Density Control. Appearing on his first three clicks of defense, Density Control states that at the beginning of your turn, you may choose one of these combinations until you choose again: Vision can use Super Senses and modifies his defense value by +1, or Vision may instead use Invulnerability and Super Strength!

A versatile combatant, able to damage in either close combat or ranged combat situations, Vision is a significant addition to any team, and is able to be played on Anti-Registration, Robot, or Young Avengers themed teams. He has a diverse set of abilities, and can suitably fill any role you need at any given time!

That’s it for today, ‘Clix fans! Be sure to join us next time as we continue to take more exciting looks at the Marvel HeroClix: Civil War Storyline OP and other upcoming releases! Visit the WizKids Info Network to find events near you. Until next time, push for the win!

Marvel HeroClix: Civil War Storyline OP- Daredevil and Wasp

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

A Civil War is upon us!  Venues around the world have officially kicked off the Marvel HeroClix: Civil War Storyline Organized Play event series.  Choose your side, whether you stand with Tony Stark on the Pro-Registration side or with Captain Rogers on the Anti-Registration side.  Both teams are equally balanced and ready to play.  It is up to you, and your dice, to decide who is victorious!

Today we continue to feature that balance as we look at two heroes, one on each side of the conflict. Both fill similar roles on their respective teams, including the dodgy and elusive secondary attacker, the harassment piece that cannot be ignored, the sleeper hitter, and possibly the surprise champion of your team. Filling these roles today, we have Daredevil and Wasp!

Marvel HeroClix: Civil War Storyline OP - Daredevil and Wasp

Though the character’s name is Daredevil, his Real Name listed on the back of the card tells a different story.  During the time of the fight over the Super Human Registration Act, Daredevil’s secret identity as New York based lawyer Matt Murdock was leaked to the tabloids. He was under heavy scrutiny by paparazzi, the New York press, the police and FBI, and of course several of his old nemeses, who showed up at his doorstep.  To deflect suspicions that he was Daredevil and to keep his friends and law practice safe, he made a deal with his friend and fellow martial artist crime fighter Danny Rand, the Iron Fist. Danny was to wear the Daredevil costume and patrol the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood in Matt’s place until the media frenzy died down.  This meant though that when Danny Rand answered the call and joined Captain America’s Anti-Registration forces he was doing so as Daredevil!  In HeroClix terms, all this history gives him Anti-Registration, Marvel Knights, and Heroes for Hire keywords along with Mystical and Martial Artist, the Spider-Man Ally wildcard team ability and the potential to be called into the fight with the Avengers Round Table resource using either the Daredevil OR Iron Fist Avengers ID Cards.

If there is something that both Daredevil and Iron Fist have in common it is avoiding being hit while hitting hard in return.  At 70 points, Daredevil makes for an excellent close combat or short range combat piece.  With Sidestep, Charge, and Improved Movement: Ignore Elevated Terrain called New Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, he can get anywhere you need him to tie up and engage the opposition.  For ranged abilities, he has a 3 range with two targets and Incapacitate to start with, but where he excels is close combat.  He begins the game with Close Combat Expert and a special defense power, No Radar, Just Well Trained, that gives him Combat Reflexes and Super Senses to increase his attack, damage, and defense when engaging base to base and dodging incoming attacks.  Mid and late dial he switches to Willpower to get more actions and tries some other kung-fu methods with alternating Flurry and Exploit Weakness. With a single click of Regeneration on his 6th and last click, Daredevil will hopefully be able to stay in the fight.

Marvel HeroClix: Civil War Storyline OP - Daredevil and Wasp

Fighting for the Pro-Registration forces at 70 points is WaspWasp has several ways to elude your opponent and their dice with the Flight symbol, the Tiny Size symbol, Improved Movement: Ignore Characters called Social Butterfly along with a full dial of both Super Senses and Sidestep. Wasp also has a trait called The Magic of Pym Particles that grants her the use of Shape Change, and if she rolls a 6 while using it, she may be placed adjacent to any character within 6 squares.  Offensively she has a 4 range with a single target and starts off making use of it with Range Combat Expert and later in her 5 click dial she wants to get up close and personal with Incapacitate and Exploit Weakness while maintaining consistent combat values.  She will be very hard to pin down and hit due to her dangerous options that cannot be easily ignored by an opponent.  She also has the Avengers, Lady Liberators, Pro-Registration, and Celebrity keywords for your theme team building enjoyment.

That’s all for today, HeroClix fans! We hope you enjoyed today’s article on the elusive attackers, Daredevil and Wasp. Log into the WizKids Info Network and find Marvel HeroClix: Civil War Storyline OP tournaments near you and choose your side.
