Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Let’s continue our look at the limited edition Convention Exclusive figures that will be available for you to win during the Winter 2017 WizKids Open, starting in February. For today’s Marvel HeroClix Convention Exclusive Prize sneak peek, we throw feudal Japan into a blender with a version of Gwen Stacy who gained the agility and proportionate strength of the radioactive spider that bit her. Bow to the honorable samurai known as Spider-Gwen!
On fleek in her white samurai armor and with her trusty pink katana by her side, Spider-Gwen can be added to your force for 65 points and is a viable secondary close attacker who can potentially cut down the toughest of foes. If themed play is your thing, Spider-Gwen has the Spider-Man Family, Armor and Warrior keywords as options for you to build around. Spider-Gwen has the standard speed, attack, defense and damage symbols and begins play with a trait called I Can Still Hear Through The Helmet, which allows her to use Combat Reflexes and Super Senses.
Moving to Spider-Gwen’s dial, she has only one special power but boy is it a fun one! With Super Sword Swinging Chop!, Spider-Gwen can use Blades/Claws/Fangs and when she hits, she can use Sidestep and Improved Movement to move through characters and blocking terrain, plus destroy any blocking terrain as she moves through it this turn. Want to chase down that pesky ninja hiding behind the hill? Take a swing at whoever is blocking your path, then use Sidestep to move through that blocking terrain and get in his ugly face! Spider-Gwen also has regular Blades/Claws/Fangs following Super Sword Swinging Chop!, making her a character your opponent wouldn’t dare ignore due to her potential damage output on each of her five clicks. Spider-Gwen’s lack of a printed range value means you’ll be up close when fighting. Thankfully, landing attacks on Spider-Gwen won’t be easy because of her trait, and her dial includes Invulnerability and Toughness to help absorb any damage that manages to get through.
Thanks for reading! Again, Spider-Gwen will be available at the 2017 Winter WizKids Open events so visit the WizKids Info Network to register for an event near you! Until next time, may all your Blades/Claws/Fangsrolls be sixes!
