Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Welcome to another exciting preview from the upcoming Marvel HeroClix: Avengers/Defenders War set! Today, we’re looking at a villainous scientist and one of the Black Panther’s most notorious villains, Klaw!
Klaw is a 110-point piece, with 6 clicks of life, as well as a range of 6 squares with one target. He can be played on both Masters of Evil and Scientist themed teams. He excels at dishing out damage and avoiding attacks, and his power set can cause absolute chaos for your opponent, and nowhere is that more evident than with his trait.
His trait is called Hard Light Focused Vibranium Conduit, and it is the single most devastating power on Klaw’s dial. This power allows Klaw to be given a free action and choose a standard attack power, allowing Klaw to use that power this turn. He’s a completely turnkey character, allowing you situational control of your board. Powers such as Blades/Claws/Fangs, Pulse Wave, Penetrating/Psychic Blast, Incapacitate – all of these and many others are at your disposal to make Klaw an absolutely devastating member of your force.
It doesn’t stop there, though. Klaw also carries two special powers, the first of which appears on his first three clicks of movement called Sound Travels! This power states that Klaw can use both Sidestep and Improved Movement – Ignores Hindering Terrain, Ignores Blocking Terrain, and Ignores Characters. Additionally, when he uses Sidestep, you may roll a d6 and he may move that many spaces, instead of 2. His second power, called Can’t Hurt What’s Made of Sound! appears on his first and third clicks of defense. This power allows Klaw to use Super Senses, and if Klaw would take more than 2 damage, he takes 2 damage instead. On top of those special powers, he has the standard powers Phasing/Teleport, Invincible, and Regeneration.
