Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Today, we look at one of the chase figures from the Marvel HeroClix: Avengers/Defenders War set. Making her debut to HeroClix is Riri Williams, a brilliant teenager mentored by Tony Stark who continues his legacy as a superhero in her own armored suit. Please welcome the invincible Iron Heart!
As a superhero who is still learning the game, Iron Heart has a six-click dial and low point value of 25. Iron Heart hasn’t logged anywhere near the amount of flight time that Iron Man has, and her dial reflects this inexperience by alternating between Sidestep and Earthbound/Neutralized with a set of average speed values. However, as a 15-year-old genius with an education from M.I.T., Iron Heart has a damage track that includes the popular support powers of Outwit, Probability Control, and Perplex.
Defensively, Iron Heart has a fairly consistent set of combat numbers, but her dial doesn’t feature any standard powers. Instead, Iron Heart handles damage via her trait, Armor’s Falling Apart On Me. With Armor’s Falling Apart On Me, Iron Heart starts the game with 1 Broken Armor token. When Iron Heart is dealt damage, roll a D6 instead. If the result is equal to or less than the number of her Broken Armor tokens, she is KO’d. Otherwise, turn Iron Heart’s dial to that click number and give her another Broken Armor token.
Iron Heart can shoot one target up to four squares away and has the Wing speed symbol, granting her the use of the Flight and Carry abilities. If you wish to include Iron Heart on a themed team, she has the Armor and Scientist keywords as options. However, Iron Heart’s low point cost, her Armor’s Falling Apart On Me trait, and the standard powers on her damage track make her a viable choice as a support character for any team.
