Greetings HeroClix Fans,

Welcome to another exciting preview of the upcoming Marvel HeroClix: Avengers/Defenders War set! Today, we’re looking at one of the more unique villains in the Marvel pantheon, the Savate master, Batroc!

Marvel HeroClix: Avengers/Defenders War - Batroc

At 40 points, Batroc is a close combat master, a martial artist of the highest caliber, and the leader of Batroc’s Brigade. As ‘ze lee-pair’, Batroc specializes in never being constrained on his movement, and that’s recognized on his dial by Improved Movement – Ignores Elevated Terrain, Ignores Hindering Terrain, and Ignores Characters.

For combat purposes, Batroc specializes in utilizing his natural ability to get out of situations and reposition himself for a better attack. Utilizing the special power that appears on his first three clicks of movement called Zey Call Me…Ze Lee-Pair!, Batroc is able to use Sidestep. Additionally, when he has one action token, he can use Sidestep twice that turn, and may then be given a free action to make a close attack. Batroc follows that power up with the standard powers Sidestep, Precision Strike, Combat Reflexes, and Exploit Weakness.

At a relatively low point cost, Batroc can fill a secondary or tertiary attacker role on your team, leaving you with plenty of room for a major tank and a support piece to offer healing or Perplex and Outwit options for your characters.
