WizKids Previews Hank Pym and Ant-Man for Age Of Ultron SLOP

That SLOP thing still gets me...
Anyway, we've got another pair of HeroClix Age of Ultron Storyline Organized Play previews from WizKids for you. This go-round we've got Hank Pym and Ant-Man. Yes, I know Hank Pym is Ant-Man (at least some of the time), and in fact, WizKids agrees with you as well. In fact, they agree so much that the two have a special ability that lets them turn into each-other during the game if you so choose.

Now, I haven't seen the new Avengers movie yet, but since it's out before Ant-Man, I assume that they change it so Ultron isn't made by Hank Pym, as it is in the comics. Well, this set's Hank Pym follows the comics with the "Ultron's Father" special ability, which means that Ultron Can't attack Hank Pym until Hank's the only one left on the board (or if there's multiple Hank Pyms on the board, that works, too). The "thou shalt not attack" isn't reciprocated, though, since friendlies of Hank get +1 to attack enemy Ultrons. Tough parenting, indeed!

As Ant-Man runs around with his buddy ants. As such, he's able to get places a bit more easily. With poison and biting mandibles and being able to hide amongst ants, this version's quite a bit different than the other incarnation.
