WizKids Previews Hulkpool For HeroClix

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.

Riddle me this, beautiful readers… what does it take to have the self-confidence to go out in bright green like the Riddler and his crew? Especially the bright green spandex.

WizKids Previews Mini Shredder For HeroClix

Comics are weird. I mean, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is already pretty weird, just starting out. It’s sort of right there in the name.

Yeah, Austin Powers certainly wasn’t the first place to have that sort of thing (and neither were the Turtles, but still…).

WizKids Previews Superman vs. Muhammad Ali Convention Exclusive For HeroClix

While comics take place in a world much like ours (except where you can have giant aliens and robots and such, of course), they’re usually a step apart and you don’t get too many real-world crossovers. Well, back in 1978, DC brought boxer Muhammad Ali to their pages where he sparred against none other than the Man of Steel, himself, Superman. Now, WizKids is bringing that to your HeroClix tabletops with a special set that is a convention exclusive.

WizKids Previews Sliver for HeroClix

Ah, the alternate universe. It’s a great way for a writer to take characters that we all know and love and put them into new situations or give them similar but altered traits. And that’s just what happened in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic. In an alternate reality, the Turtles gained different super powers and their master, Splinter, was the dark and evil Sliver.

WizKids Previews Bebop for HeroClix

Where would The Shredder be without his faithful assistant and henchman, Bebop? … … … Probably a lot closer to actually completing his plans of defeating the Turtles and world domination, actually. But that’s beside the point. The Shredder’s Return set for HeroClix will be coming out soon and there’s going to be both a pre- and post-mutation version of Bebop in there, of which we get a look at here.

Friday Snippets

Friiiiiiiidaaaaaaay!
Woo! We’ve made it, everyone! At least for me, it was a nice, calm, “standard” week. As a creature of habit, I’m very grateful for that. Many of us here in the US are also getting a 3-day weekend, what with Martin Luther King Jr. Day being this upcoming Monday. So that’s cool. I hope you have some cool weekend activities planned and that today being Friday the 13th doesn’t mean anything bad for you. But as we go into the weekend, we should stock up on bite-sized gaming stories.

Today we have: New Ruler Designs From Kromlech, Cryptozoic Releases Mighty Meeples: DC Justice League Collection Tin, New Aufklarungs Passenger trays from Dark Art Miniatures, New Warbikes and Trikes from Raging Heroes, Rebel Minis Releases New 28mm Sci-Fi Packs, Cardstock Warriors Site is Live, Weekend Promo from Kromlech, and New Bases Available From Micro Art Studio.
