Greetings HeroClix Fans,
Welcome to another exciting preview from the upcoming Marvel HeroClix: Avengers Defenders War set! Today, we’re looking at a guy who’s made a career out of overcoming his doubters, Scott Lang, the Ant-Man!
Ant-Man is a Tiny Size 80-point piece, with 5 clicks of life. He carries the Avengers, Defenders, Heroes for Hire, and Scientist keywords. Ant-Man also has Improved Movement – Ignores Characters. As a Tiny Size character, Ant-Man of course modifies his defensive value by +1 against ranged combat attacks. He also allows for any larger adjacent character to carry him, meaning he’s a portable powerhouse that can be a force for your force!
From a power perspective, Ant-Man has two standard powers appearing on both his movement and damage tracks. First, on his first three clicks of movement is the power Ant-Man Security Solutions. This power states that Ant-Man can use both Sidestep and Stealth. Additionally, when an adjacent opposing character is moved or placed, you may place Ant-Man adjacent to that character after actions resolve! His second special power, appearing on his first two and his final click of damage is called Subatomic Subterfuge. This power states that Ant-Man can use Perplex. If he targets an opposing character using this power, that character can’t target Ant-Man until your next turn, unless it’s the only character on its force.
For standard powers, Ant-Man possesses Stealth, Precision Strike, Incapacitate, Super Senses, Combat Reflexes, and Close Combat Expert. He’s a dangerous mix of shut-down powers and heavy damage who can really force your opponent out of their comfort zones, especially if he makes use of his Subatomic Subterfuge power. Be sure to keep him moving around the board as you’re able!
That’s all for today! Stay tuned for more exciting previews as we keep diving deeper into the set and be sure to visit the WizKids Info Network to find Marvel HeroClix: Avengers Defenders War Pre-Release and Release Day OP Events!
