DC HeroClix: Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes Preview

DC HeroClix Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes: Universo!

Greeting HeroClix Fans!

Today’s preview from the upcoming DC HeroClix: Superman and the Legion of Super Heroes set is Universo! Let’s see why he is sure to mesmerize you.  


At 71 points, Universo will enthrall you with his abilities. His special power Hypnosis states Universo can use Mind Control as if he had 3 targets. When he does, increase his attack value by the number of targets and, after actions resolve, heal him of 1 damage for each character with the Legion of Super Heroes keyword he hit with that attack. With a 7 range he should be able to stay out of most 6 range attackers.

Univero’s top 2 clicks of defense should be enough to repel attackers to look for easier targets. His special dense power Master of Misdirection Universo can use Energy Shield/ Deflection and Super Senses. Along with his Shape Change, he has a good chance of shrugging off any attacks. Clicks 3 and 4 he changes to Energy Shield/Deflection and Outwit. Clicks 5 and 6 he has Stealth, Super Senses and Shape Change.  In fact it’s so difficult to hit him for most of his dial it’s stupefying!

On click 4, Universo obtains the special attack power I’ve Learned a Few Things that allows Universo to use Incapacitate. When he does, after actions resolve he can use Smoke Cloud as a free action. So while Universo’s damage is low for most of his dial, you can always Incapacitate an opponent with 2 tokens to do damage and use your free action Smoke Cloud to help hide him in hindering terrain.

Universo has the Calculator team ability so make sure to put that to good use.  He also has the keywords Cosmic, Future, and Legion of Super Villains. If you have a team that is all wild cards you could use the Legion Lost Additional Team Ability (ATA) that states once at the beginning of the game, if no character on your force possesses a team ability that isn’t a wild card team ability, choose any one DC team ability other than an additional team ability, a wild card team ability, or a team ability that can’t be used by wild cards. Characters using this team ability are not wild cards and can use the chosen team ability if they can’t already. So you could use the Batman Ally team ability to help hide your team or the Superman Ally team ability if you’re going up against a Stealth-heavy team.
