Marvel HeroClix The Invincible Iron Man: Death’s Head!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Welcome to the files of Stark Industries as we begin to look at figures from the upcoming Marvel HeroClix: The Invincible Iron Man set. Death’s Head is the Marvel HeroClix 2012 Fan-Vote Winner and a freelance peace-keeping robotic bounty hunter.

028-Death's-Head

First thing to note is that Death’s Head has the Improved Target Combat Symbol. Death’s Head can use Improved Targeting and ignores other characters whenever he draws a line of fire. Death’s Head has an 8 range with one target.

Death’s Head starts out with the ability to use Phasing/Teleport with a 10 movement, getting him into position for the right follow up attack. Penetrating/Psychic Blast and Invulnerability finish off his top dial. Death’s Head next click has Invincible and picks up Exploit Weakness. So, either up close or from range, Death’s Head should be dealing penetrating damage to any unfortunate target.

On click 3, Death’s Head picks up the use of a special power called Side Job. Each time Death’s Head hits with an attack and actions resolve, you may deal 1 unavoidable damage to another friendly character within 3 squares. If you do, Death’s Head may be given one action as a free action but can’t attack any character he already attacked this turn. Notice that as long as Death’s Head has friendly characters to deal damage to, and new targets to attack, he could do this multiple times.

On a Non-Theme Golden Age 300 point build you could use Death’s Head and #203b S.H.I.E.L.D. Field Agent (from the Marvel HeroClix: Captain America gravity feed set) as they both have the Robot keyword.  You can attach the Robot ATA at 4 points each, giving one of them the ability to use Perplex when they are adjacent. Next add in #33 Forge from Wolverine and the X-Men and you have yourself a nice little circle of death. Death’s Head targets an opposing character and resolves that action, then he gives a click of damage to the S.H.I.E.L.D. Field Agent. Death’s Head now targets another opposing character and resolves that action. When it’s all over you can use Forge’s trait to free action heal the S.H.I.E.L.D. Field Agent of one damage.

Death’s Head gains Sidestep on click 5 and a special power called many Many Ways to Kill You, Yes? At the beginning of your turn, you may choose Close Combat Expert or Ranged Combat Expert. Death’s Head can use the chosen power this turn.

On Death’s Head final two clicks he now can use Energy Explosion and a special defensive power called Faked My Own Death.  This will allow Death’s Head to use Invulnerability and Regeneration.

Death’s Head also has the indomitable combat ability allowing him to use Willpower and all for just 177 points, this guy will bring the hurt. Aside from having Robot, Death’s Head also has Assassin and S.W.O.R.D. for his keywords.

Thanks for reading and be sure not to crosshairs with our next villain as we continue to look at figures from the upcoming Marvel HeroClix: Invincible Iron Man set. Until then, Shape Change for the Win!!
