Greetings, HeroClix fans,
Welcome to another exciting preview for the upcoming Marvel HeroClix 15th Anniversary: What If? set! Today, we’re looking at a figure that you can win at your Friendly Local Game Store by participating in a Release Day Organized Play Event. We are excited to introduce a version of Steve Rogers who was able to wield Mighty Mjölnir – The Captain!
As a 110-point piece, The Captain features high attack values, high damage output, and a dynamic 7-click dial. In addition to being Indomitable, he comes with a range of six squares, which allows you to push him and press the attack. The Captain is a true powerhouse, and he only gets better as we start to dive deep on his diverse dial.
To start, The Captain sports two traits. The first is called From An Alternate Earth. This trait states that if this character is on your sideline, you may give a free action to a friendly character named Captain America or Thor that’s of equal or higher value. You can replace that character with this character on the same click number – he’s a versatile multi-tool to bring in as a situational attacker, or eschewing that, he can be your primary up front threat. His second trait is called There’s Plenty One Man Can Do…If He’s The Right Man! This trait states that before The Captain is given a non-free action, you may knock back any number of adjacent opposing characters 2 squares. Think of the havoc you could cause on multi-level maps or near the edge of a map – extra damage is always a good thing!
The Captain sports a single special power, called Heads Up, Avenger! I’ve Got a Special Delivery Winging its Way Towards You! Appearing on the final three clicks of his damage, this special power allows you to give The Captain a power action and choose a friendly character within range and line of fire. All opposing characters adjacent to the chosen character are knocked back 2 squares from the chosen character’s square. If the chosen character is named Thor, that character can make an attack after actions resolve! He rounds out his dial with the standard powers Charge, Sidestep, Quake, Invulnerability, Toughness, and Close Combat Expert.
The Captain is one of the most popular incarnations of Captain America, and this dial certainly does the character justice. He can be played in any number of roles – either as a primary attacker with a lower point team behind him, or in conjunction with a Thor to make use of his special power. He fits in nicely in any occasion, especially when on his Avengers or Soldier themed teams.
