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...

Knight Models has posted up a new batch of releases for their DC Universe Miniatures Game as well as their Batman Miniatures Game. Much of it falls distinctly into the “villain” category, including one of the most villainous villains to ever villain: Darkseid. You’ve got him along w...

Ah, comic books. You gotta love ’em. You can have a super villain who has titanium table saw blades strapped to the back of some gloves. Because why the hell not? This time around in their previews of the Avengers/Defenders War set for HeroClix, WizKids takes a look at Gladiator....

WizKids continues their look at the upcoming Avengers/Defenders War set for HeroClix with a peek at Batroc. 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...

Professor Pyg and the Dollotrons… Sounds like a prog rock band from the 70s. But, really, it’s a new set that’s coming out for the Batman Miniatures Game from Knight Models. And so you know what you’re getting yourself into, they’ve posted up an in-depth preview of the g...

I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I guess I could leave it at that and claim that’s all the proper words for letting you know about this preview, but that wouldn’t really be right. Anyway, since there’s a new Guardians of the Galaxy set coming for HeroClix, they’...

Just think what you could do if you had the power of the mighty ant! … Ok, it doesn’t initially sound so awesome, but if you know about Ant-Man, you know it’s really not so bad. He’s making his way back to your HeroClix tables in the upcoming Avengers/Defenders War set. Have y...

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...

Just about everyone in the Marvel universe has had a Deadpool parody of them at some point, it seems. In this instance, it’s the Hulk that gets the Deadpool makeover. I have to admit, not having read comics for almost 2 decades now, I don’t quite know the circumstances that Wade ended up ...
