DC Comics HeroClix: World’s Finest Pre-Release Event!

Attention HeroClix Fans and Retailers!

Players will have an opportunity to get a sneak peek at the figures from the DC Comics HeroClix: World’s Finest set before official world-wide release! After years of rivalry, Superman™ and Batman™ have joined forces to fight common enemies in DC Comics HeroClix: World’s Finest.

The DC Comics HeroClix: World’s Finest set features heroes and villains from the Superman/Batman comics as well as three major sub-themes of the Metal Men, the misfit heroes of the Doom Patrol and a mystical sub-theme that includes well-known magic users such as Jason Blood as well as a collection of generic magic/supernatural characters such as witches, warlocks, apprentices and demons.

Entry Fee: $16 per person* suggested— each participant receives one (1) 5-figure booster pack of DC Comics HeroClix: World’s Finest.

Force Construction: DRAFT

Drafting Instructions: Players open their boosters and draft a team of 5 figures from the boosters— for the purpose of drafting, seat all players in groups of 4. Each player choose one figure out of their first booster and each booster passed to them until all players have drafted a team of 5 figures.  Players play all 5 figures as their team.

Action Limit: The action limit for the tournament is 1 action per 100 points of drafted team with the lowest team build total— EXAMPLES:

  • If the player with the lowest team build total has a 275 point team, the tournament is run as 2 actions per player.
  • If a player with the lowest team build total has a 315 point team, the tournament is run as 3 actions per player.
