Greetings HeroClix fans!
We are celebrating 15 years of HeroClix, the fantastic game that brings your favorite heroes and villains to your tabletop for fast-paced strategic excitement, by releasing a very special set of Marvel HeroClix figures. The Marvel HeroClix: 15th Anniversary What If? set has Marvel characters like you’ve never seen them before. These characters come straight from the pages of classic issues of Marvel’s What If? series that takes readers to alternate universes to see how things change if events happened differently in the Marvel Universe.
Today, we wonder What If Thor was a thrall of Seth?
With the help of the Time Twisters, Seth overpowered Odin and defeated Asgard in the same universe as Earth 9260. Several of Thor’s allies were killed in the fight while he and the rest of his fighting companions were imprisoned and toyed with by Seth until a disguised Immortus and his multi-universe allies Dr. Doom, Irondroid, and vampire Wolverine could liberate Asgard.
Coming in at 105 points with the Asgardian and Mystical keywords, this Thor means to stay close to his captors and do their bidding with long-range attacks. He has the Flight symbol and a range value of 7. He switches from a starting slot of Running Shot to Sidestep for his middle dial and finishes with Running Shot again. His mobility options overlap with his attack power options with Pulse Wave and Penetrating/Psychic Blast. Defensively, he starts with a click of Invincible followed by Invulnerability to reduce damage and finishes with three clicks of Energy Shield/Deflection to keep himself from being sniped too easily.
Though he lacks the use of Willpower, this Thor can become a regular cannon that can shoot every turn with his special power on damage Under Seth’s Thrall. If players give an adjacent friendly character with the Mystical keyword and a point value of 50 or more a double power action that deals no pushing damage, Thor can make a free close or ranged attack. If players keep characters that meet the point value and keyword requirements close and pile around some lower point figures with Enhancement or Empower or ones that give attack bonuses like the Hydra and SHIELD agents, then Thor can deal massive amounts of damage every turn without pushing!
