DC HeroClix: The Flash Preview

DC HeroClix The Flash: Ragdoll and the Shade!



Greetings HeroClix Fans!

In the upcoming DC HeroClix: Flash set, some do believe it’s time to rise up and take over the world. As we give a visit to Opal City and two members of the Injustice Society.


Rag Doll will prove to be a hinderance and annoying foe to all those Speedsters running around. His trait called Contortionist and Opportunist will make one think twice about a hit and run strategy. When a character moves into a square adjacent to Rag Doll and then a square that is not adjacent to him that character is dealt 1 unavoidable damage after actions resolve.

Rag Doll is 60 points and only 5 clicks but has Plasticity on all of them, good luck getting away. On Rag Doll’s odd number clicks he can use Combat Reflexes and Shape Change, while on the even numbered clicks Rag Doll can use Perplex. Right smack in the middle of the dial Rag Doll can use Incapacitate.

Rag Doll is a Wildcard and will surprise opponents with his 2 range. Rag Doll has the Injustice Society, Keystone City and Opal City keywords.


Our next villain to rise from the shadows is the Shade. The Shade will be able to walk through hindering terrain and even target those trying to hide as he has the Improved symbol and can use ignores hindering terrain on movement and line of fire.

Shade’s Power of the Darklands trait will allow him to use Smoke Cloud and Stealth. When Shade has 2 action tokens, he can use Smoke Cloud as a free action.

Shade has 2 point values you can play him at. For 129 points Shade starts with Shape Change and 2 clicks of Phasing/Teleport and Super Senses. Shade has a special attack power called Shadow Demons which will work with his Smoke Cloud. Before removing Shade’s hindering terrain markers from the map, deal 1 damage to each opposing character within range occupying one of those markers. If that character is also adjacent to 2 or more of Shade’s hindering terrain markers, the damage dealt is penetrating.

Shade has a special damage power called Hero? Villain? What’s the Difference? Shade can use Perplex. When Shade does, he may immediately choose a friendly character of 50 points or more and modify that character’s combat values by -1 until your next turn, and then use Perplex a second time.

Shade’s 100 point starting line is on click 3 and has Sidestep, Telekinesis, Super Senses and Shape Change. On click 4 Shade can now use Barrier and regains the use of Hero? Villain? What’s the Difference? Shade will finish out his dial with 2 clicks of Regeneration and Probability Control.

Shade has a 6 range and the Mystics team ability. His keywords are Injustice Society, Mystical, and Opal City.

Both above villains have the Injustice Society keyword and if they were part of a themed team you could add the Monster Society of Evil Additional Team Ability (ATA) for just 5 points per character. This ATA would allow for at the end of your turn, you may roll a d6 for each friendly character using this team ability. On a result of 5 or 6, deal 1 damage to each opposing character adjacent to that character that hasn’t already been dealt damage by this team ability this turn.

Thanks for reading and be sure to continue to check back as we look at figures from the upcoming DC HeroClix: Flash set. Until then, Shape Change for the Win!
