Just how many Deadpool figures are going to be in the Deadpool & the X-Force set for HeroClix? Judging by the previews, about a hundred. We’ve got another one to check out there. This one’s Pulp Deadpool....

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 ...

Well, from a story about a Marvel game that’s ending to a story about a Marvel game that’s getting a new release soon. WizKids is showing off another couple of figures from the upcoming Marvel HeroClix: Deadpool and X-Force set. This time around it’s a pair of Stingrays....

… Comics really are weird. So, clones are really no big thing anymore, really. We’ve had Dolly the sheep around for decades now. And comics make heavy use of them all the time. But then you’ve got Shredder Shark. It’s a shark! It’s an octopus! It’s a Shredder! It&#...

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. Well, the comics got weirder from there, including all manner of odd characters. In this case, we’re talking about Mini Shredder. Yeah, Austin Powers ce...

The previews are coming hot and heavy for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles releases from WizKids. Both Dice Masters and HeroClix are getting sets, and that means plenty of characters in various forms. The one for HeroClix today is a bit of a mouthful to say. Take a look at Savanti Alfonso Ju...

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 again...

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 ga...

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 ...

Dice Masters isn’t the only game getting a Ninja Turtles expansion soon. HeroClix will be getting their 3rd mutant-themed set when Shredder’s Return comes out. And what would fighting against Shredder be without fighting against Foot Soldiers? Nothing, that’s what. Well, the new set...

Ok, so, what would happen if you mixed the power of the Red Hulk, added in the symbiotic might of Venom, and threw in a dash of Biblical vengeance from Ghost Rider? Well, you’d get the Spirit of Vengeance Red Hulk. Yes, it happened (comics are weird) and it’s coming to your tabletops for ...

With the multiple universes that they create, you can get all different types of characters, letting you explore them from different angles and under different circumstances. One such alternate universe is Earth X, where we g...

As we saw in the previous preview from WizKids about their upcoming Convention Exclusives for HeroClix, Pym Particles can be used to make things smaller, or they can be used to make things much, much bigger. That doesn’t just include Hank Pym, himself, but various objects as well, including tan...

Pym particles are mostly known for shrinking you down in size. However, with the right application, they can also cause things to grow to gigantic size. As such, Ant-Man can also become Giant-Man. WizKids is going to have a limited-edition version of Giant-Man at their WizKids Winter Open and wanted ...

A lot of really strange things can happen in the comics. Alternate-timelines and other dimensions can create situations where heroes are much different than their more-well-known styles. Sometimes, those characters don’t quite seem like something that would go into a HeroClix set. Thankfully, w...

One of the more iconic villains in the Batman universe is The Penguin. Oswald Cobblepot always wanted to be high society. He certainly always saw himself that way, no matter what situation he found himself in. And in lieu of any humans to hang around with, or even avian friends, he’d build his ...

Characters in comic books tend to go through phases and changes. Sure, the rough idea of the character might be the same, but there’s a lot of specifics that can change. As such, HeroClix figures will come in different versions to show off these different types of character changes. So while th...
