While Batman takes care of much of the crime problem in Gotham, he doesn’t work alone. Commissioner Gordon certainly does all he can from within a system that seems tailor-made for corruption and ineptitude. He’s getting a card and dice in the upcoming Dice Masters set, as is it Bat-Signa...

While most people think of comics just in “the big two,” there are other companies out there creating real quality graphic novels. One such is Wayward. They are teaming up with IDW Games to release the Wayward board game. In it, players will take on the roles of iconic characters from the...

A new DC-centered Dice Masters set is hitting soon from WizKids. Though the focus is on Batman, as always, there’s plenty more heroes and villains to check out. A pair of do-gooders with vastly different approaches, Hawk and Dove, are among the new heroes showing up. You can get a look at them ...

The new Wonder Woman set gets ever-closer to release for HeroClix. As always, the set includes characters from both the “good” and “bad” side of the law. In this case, it’s Cheetah. Because one Cat-Woman wasn’t enough for the DC universe (not to say Mervel doesn...

The Wonder Woman set for HeroClix will be coming out soon. In it, they’ll have more than just Wonder Woman. Though, with all the different versions characters go through in comics, I could see them coming out with a set of “just one character.” Anyway, one (well, two of the figures,...

One of the bigger announcements in comic books in the past year or so was the revelation that Captain America had always been a deep-cover Hydra agent this whole time. Spoilers: it’s not that they retconned all of Steve’s backstory from the beginning. It’s that Red Skull is having s...

Just about all of us wish we had some form of super power. Maybe it’s super speed, or flight, or heat-vision, or weather control. Whatever it might be, heading out and fighting crime with our powers (or perhaps being a super villain) isn’t really something we can do. But we can all live v...

A master of martial arts, Batroc can get pretty much where you need him on the map, having a bunch of different movement abilities. That way, you can apply his Karate chops right where you want...

Comics are filled with all sorts of colorful characters. The Porcupine is certainly among them. Looking at the costume, he’s giving me a sort of “Ultimate Warrior” vibe, but without the face paint. Anyway, the villain is coming to your HeroClix games in the Avengers/Defenders War se...

When you think of the Guardians of the Galaxy, I’m willing to say it’s a pretty safe bet that you’re thinking of Groot and Rocket Raccoon. While Star Lord may be the leader, and Drax and Gamora certainly have their parts to play, the dynamic duo of a talking (kind of) tree and murde...

Back when I read comics, I was an X-fan. I mostly read X-Factor, but since I also read Wolverine, so that means I read some X-Men as well. And, of course, I watched the cartoon as well. As such, I’ve always been more a Marvel fan than a DC fan. So, even though I don’t […]...

Villains aren’t really known for doing team-ups. Most of the time, they tend to work on their own. But sometimes they realize that they, alone, won’t be able to finish their goals like they want. In such times, tenuous alliances have been formed. You get to do just that same thing in The ...

The Guardians of the Galaxy certainly does have some interesting-looking characters they interact with. One of them is the space pirate, Yondu. I mean, he’s got an arrow that he can control… psychically? Magically? I don’t honestly know. But you don’t want to get hit by it, th...

Sometimes it’s good to be bad. Sure, most games have you playing as the goody-two-shoes heroes. But that can get old after a while. Well, thankfully, there’s occasionally times where you get to play as the villains in a game. Cryptozoic is letting you do just that with the next Crossover ...

One thing you’d expect to get in a set called Deadpool & X-Force is at least one Deadpool miniature. You might even expect two or three. Well… never let it be known that WizKids doesn’t name their sets appropriately, as this set is creaking at the seams with Deadpools, of which...
