WizKids Previews Blue Marvel for Age of Ultron HeroClix
Collectable Miniatures Games give you the feel of a minis game with the “Christmas Morning” feel of opening up a package of randomized figures, like you get when you open up a pack of cards for Magic: The Gathering or such like that. There are rares, and for HeroClix, you even have Super Rare pieces. One of those for the Age of Ultron Storyline OP Event is Blue Marvel. Let’s take a look and see what he does, shall we?
Blue Marvel comes in at 230 points. Considering that the average team build is 300, that doesn’t leave you a lot of extra room. However, he’s going to do his best to make sure you get the most out of those other figures, and himself, in the meantime. Some of that comes from an ability where he gains a cumulative defense bonus when within 4 squares of other characters with the Mighty Avengers ability. Hard to deal clicks to your opponent when you can’t hit their defense. And then, if you do, in a couple places on Blue Marvel’s dial is Molecular Manipulation. That ability gives Blue Marvel Regeneration. So, what makes it different than just regular Regeneration? Well, that’d be that it also works on other characters that are adjacent to him. Yeah, think of all those other characters that you wish had a bit of Regeneration. With Blue Marvel around, you can get that ability out there on them.
