Greetings HeroClix Fans!
We have a special treat for you today as we showcase one of the chase figures you can find in the Marvel HeroClix: Deadpool and X-Force set that will hit your local stores in March with Pre-Release events beginning this week. Say hello to Hulkpool!
Click to enlarge.
With a keyword, a trait, and a special power that hearken back to the chase rarity figures from the Marvel’s Incredible Hulk set, Hulkpool can help bring some Golden Age nostalgia to your Modern Age games. In addition to the return of the Hulked Out Heroes keyword Hulkpool also has Deadpool Corps, Brute, Past and Pirate keywords. Just as the other Hulked Out Heroes, he has a trait that gives you extra bonuses if he hits an opposing character with a devastatingly successful dice roll. Smash Well Developed Sense of Irony lets you choose to either heal Hulkpool 3 clicks or counter all powers on the hit target if you hit them with a close combat attack and the dice roll was at least 4 greater than their defense value. In typical gamma ray powered fashion, Hulkpool starts with high attack, defense, and damage numbers along with Indomitable, a long run of Super Strength, and steadily decreasing layers of damage reduction with Impervious, Invulnerability, and Toughness. Not bad for a 125 point silver-ringed Unique figure.
Be prepared to make an entrance with Charge and Sidestep along with Improved Movement: Ignore Blocking Terrain and Destroy Blocking Terrain While Moving Through It. For a little bit of Deadpool flavor he has two clicks of Probability Control to start with and his trait, Do You See The Comic Panels Telling Me What To Do? that lets you attach a Comic Panel FX Base to him if he has no action tokens at the beginning of the turn. He can use any of the Comic Panels that comes with each chase figure in this set, but the one that Hulkpool comes with gives the recipient the use of Quake. For his last three clicks, he has a damage special that is familiar to the Hulked Out Heroes, Revert: Deadpool. You can give Hulkpool a free action to replace him with a character named Deadpool of equal or lesser point value on the same click number, minus 1. If you’ve been paying attention to the previews you know there will be no shortage of options to revert to with this piece.
