Greetings, HeroClix fans!
Today, we’re going to further explore our upcoming Marvel HeroClix: Civil War Storyline Organized Play Event Series! Please be sure to visit the WizKids Info Network to find a local venue that will be hosting Marvel HeroClix: Civil War Storyline OP events, as they kick off in June!
As we mentioned in our previous look into the set, the Marvel HeroClix: Civil War Storyline OP events are slightly different from our previous OP events, as the set is focused on the characters and their factions. Each of the five-figure Marvel HeroClix: Civil War Boosters contain characters from Pro-Registration, Anti-Registration, and Neutral factions, with each base color-coded to show their faction. Today, we’re going to look at opposing power-houses from the Anti-Registration and Pro-Registration sides – first, we have Hercules!
The Greek demigod Hercules is an indomitable 90-point piece, with six clicks of life and power for days! To start, Hercules possesses the trait “Fair” Greco-Roman Wrestling, which allows Herc to use Super Strength. Additionally, when he moves adjacent to an opposing character holding an object, after actions resolve, KO that object. With regards to Hercules powers, he possesses three clicks of a special power called If You Won’t Come to Me, which allows Hercules to use both Charge and Plasticity. He also possesses significant standard powers which really flesh out the Lion of Olympus, with Sidestep, Quake, Invulnerability, Toughness, and Close Combat Expert. With those powers, Hercules is also in possession of keywords that allow him to slot in on some powerful themed teams, with Anti-Registration, Avengers, Celebrity, Deity, and Heroes for Hire!
Switching over to the Pro-Registration side of things, we have the Jade Giantess herself, She-Hulk! Shulkie, much like her counterpart Hercules, is an indomitable 90-point warrior with six clicks of life. There are some similarities in their power set, but where She-Hulk stands apart is with her Improved Movement – Ignores Blocking Terrain and Destroys Blocking Terrain as the Character Moves Through It, and her trait, Cease and Desist. Like Hercules, this trait grants Super Strength, but it differentiates itself by stating that when She-Hulk makes an object attack and hits, after actions resolve, the hit character is given an action token! Her standard powers are pure She-Hulk, with Charge, Leap/Climb, Sidestep, Quake, Invulnerability, Toughness, and Close Combat Expert. She also brings many team building options to the table, with her keywords of Avengers, Brute, Heroes for Hire, Lady Liberators, and Pro-Registration.
That’s all for today, ‘Clix fans! Check back next time as we take another look at opposing forces from the Marvel HeroClix: Civil War Storyline OP! Until then, don’t be afraid to push!
