My current playlist I’m listening to (and have been for a couple weeks now) includes songs like Misfits – Halloween, Ministry – Everyday is Halloween, and The Cramps – Naked Girl Falling Down the Stairs (because if you’re gonna write a song, write a damn song!). As you c...

For the 15th anniversary set of HeroClix, WizKids is headed to the Elseworlds, a group of alternate-realities from the DC Universe we normally know. We all know that Wonder Woman is pretty big right now, what with her hit movie and all. But, in the comics, she was big, literally. Like, a walking buil...

So, the previous Batman preview garnered some discussion, mostly about physique. Not sure this one will have as much of that, but still, it might. There’s certainly been more than one alternate version of Batman over the years (have they done the rainbow suits yet?), and here’s another th...

It has been a very long time (since high school gym class) since I’ve shot a bow and arrow. At the time, we used two hands. Well, some people don’t have two hands, so they have to improvise. In the upcoming Elseworlds set for HeroClix, there’s a version of Green Arrow that has lost ...

Marvel isn’t the only comic company getting a 15th Anniversary Set for HeroClix. DC is getting their own, too. And much like the Marvel set featured What If? scenarios, the DC one is focusing on the Elseworlds, alternative versions of various characters from their own worlds. In this preview, w...

The latest set for HeroClix, the What If? set, is now available. Though it’s more than just a new set of figures. It’s also a milestone. That being that this is the 15th Anniversary set for the game. It’s been an interesting road, with many twists and turns. Obviously, some years ha...

Comics can already be pretty weird on their own. But when you get into “What if…?” scenarios, it can get even stranger. In this case, it’s a look at what would happen if the Venom symbiote was attached to the Hulk, instead of Topher Grace… I mean, Spider Man and then Edd...

You can’t have light without dark. You can’t have good without bad. You can’t have up without down. These cosmic rules are kept in check by the In-Betweener, a being that’s the embodiment of balance in the Marvel universe. And soon, he’ll be making his way to your HeroCl...

Where we are now is because of a long series of decisions, situations, and happenstance. But what if anything along the way had been different? How would things change? Well, in comics, you can actually change stuff around like that and see what might’ve happened. Like, what if Daredevil was an...

The new Wonder Woman set gets ever-closer to release for HeroClix. As always, the set includes characters from both the “good” and “bad” side of the law. In this case, it’s Cheetah. Because one Cat-Woman wasn’t enough for the DC universe (not to say Mervel doesn...

The Wonder Woman set for HeroClix will be coming out soon. In it, they’ll have more than just Wonder Woman. Though, with all the different versions characters go through in comics, I could see them coming out with a set of “just one character.” Anyway, one (well, two of the figures,...

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...

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...

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 ...

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...
