Greetings HeroClix Fans,
Welcome to another exciting preview from the upcoming DC Comics HeroClix: 15th Anniversary – Elseworlds set! Today, we’re looking at one of the chase figures from the set, featuring a character from the Frank Miller classic The Dark Knight Returns – Green Arrow!
This version of Green Arrow is an 80-point piece, with five clicks of life, and a range of 8 squares with one target. He also sports Improved Targeting – Ignores Elevated Terrain, Ignores Hindering Terrain, and Ignores Characters. He’s also an Indomitable figure, meaning he can be pushed without repercussions, allowing you to reposition and move Green Arrow at your discretion. With his power set and abilities, Green Arrow fits in nicely on Gotham City, Star City, and Martial Artist themed teams.
And what a power set – his dial is full, with a standard or special power on every click! From a standard power perspective, Green Arrow brings Leap/Climb, Stealth, Precision Strike, Combat Reflexes, Super Senses, Ranged Combat Expert, and Outwit. As mentioned, he also has a special power appearing on his first three clicks of attack called Kryptonite Arrows. This power states that when Green Arrow hits with a range attack, the hit target can’t use defense powers until your next turn. Additionally, if the hit target also has the Kryptonian keyword, give that hit target an action token.
On top of that, Green Arrow has two traits. The first, called The Dark Knight Returns: Not Hiding Anymore, gives Green Arrow a major advantage if he’s left in clear terrain. This power states that when Green Arrow occupies clear terrain, he can use Sidestep, and opposing characters can’t draw lines of fire to him unless they are within 3 squares of him or he has 2 action tokens. His second trait is called …It Still Hurts When It’s Cold, which states that Green Arrow can’t make range attacks when he has 1 action token.
That’s it for today, HeroClix fans!
