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...

In the upcoming Avengers/Defenders War set for HeroClix, some of the heroes are listed as “title characters.” They have special abilities tied to them called… well, “title character abilities.” This allows them to gain and spend Plot Points in order to do special things ...

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.

WizKids is happy to announce that they’ve re-signed their licensing deal with CBS for Star Trek. Considering how big a property Star Trek is, that’s newsworthy in and of itself. But they’ve also posted up a list of new products they’re going to be coming out with that license....

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...

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...

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 ...

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...

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 ...
