Greetings HeroClix Fans!
With Pre-Release Events beginning this week, there has been a lot of excitement surrounding the Marvel HeroClix: Deadpool and X-Force set; especially around the chase figures which are versions of Deadpool from all across Marvel’s many universes, of which we have another one to preview for you today. Straight from the pages of his own 4 issue limited series, here is Pulp Deadpool!

Pulp Deadpool is a version of Wade Wilson from a universe similar to the main Marvel Universe but where Wade, as Deadpool, is a secret government operative during the 1950’s. Pulp Deadpool can join your team for 100 points and brings the Deadpool Corps, Weapon X, Assassin, Past, and Soldier keywords with him. Whether you need a ranged or a close combat attacker Pulp Deadpool is effective at both with his special movement power Fifty Against One, Not Bad, that lets him use Charge, Plasticity, and Running Shot. On one turn you could use Running Shot to target two characters at 7 range with Precision Strike; on the next turn ignore pushing damage with Indomitable and stay put to make use of Ranged Combat Expert or use Charge to close the distance and prepare for his mid dial Close Combat Expert and late dial Flurry and Blades/Claws/Fangs.
Reflecting his expert training, his combat values are very respectable. Starting with an attack value of 12 that slowly decreases through his dial and an 18 defense value that he has for over half of his dial’s life, his combat values are the perfect complement to his powers and skill set including his full 6 clicks of Super Senses. Let’s not forget his trait shared by all the chase figures in this set, 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. The Comic Panel FX bases are packed together with the Deadpool & X-Force chases; the one that comes with Pulp Deadpool lets the character it is attached to use Stealth.
