Greetings HeroClix Fans,
Welcome to another preview of the Marvel HeroClix: Guardians of the Galaxy v2 Movie Gravity Feed based off of the upcoming sure-to-be-a-smash-hit film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2! Today, we’re taking a look at one of the most beloved curmudgeons in the galaxy, Rocket!
Also – be warned, when you’re looking at anything for a set from an upcoming film, understand there’s an implied gigantic, neon lights ablaze, air horn siren Spoiler Warning here. Turn back now if you want to be completely in the dark when it comes to those lovable miscreants protecting the galaxy!
Still here? Excellent.
Rocket is the team’s resident tinkerer and ordinance expert – he cobbles together weapons and is the oft-times foul mouthed voice of reason for the Guardians. While he’s not exactly what you’d call a team player, Rocket has the ability to play on four different themed teams, Guardians of the Galaxy, Animal, Pilot, and Robot. He clocks in at a very affordable 65 points, which nets you five clicks of life and a range of six squares with two targets. Rocket is also naturally nimble, as shown by his Improved Movement – Ignores Hindering Terrain and Improved Movement – Ignores Characters.
Powers wise, Rocket has a measure of standard powers that fit his character perfectly – Running Shot for when he’s on the move and blasting baddies, Flurry for when he closes in and needs to finish off an opponent, Energy Explosion for those times when things need to get explosive, Super Senses to show those natural animal instincts, and Probability Control, which plays to his combat expertise and ability to predict and readjust to situational battle. Along with his standard powers, Rocket also sports a special defensive power called Stand Still Ya Vermin, which states that Rocket can use both Mastermind and Super Senses. As an added bonus, he can use Mastermind regardless of point value if the friendly character shares a keyword with Rocket.
That’s it for today, ‘Clix fans! Stay tuned as we continue to explore the far reaches of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with more exciting previews from the upcoming Marvel HeroClix – Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 set! Until then, I AM GROOT!
