WizKids Previews Yondu For HeroClix

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, that's for sure. He's making his way to your tabletops in HeroClix, and you can get a look at what he's capable of in this preview.

From the post:

As leader of the Ravagers, Yondu is familiar with combat, and his dial is a reflection of that skillset. He is a 100-point piece, has six clicks of life, and has a remarkable range of eight squares with three targets. He also has Improved Targeting which allows him to make ranged attacks against adjacent characters. Finally, taking into account his tendency for shifting allegiances to suit his needs, Yondu can be played on Guardians of the Galaxy, Ravagers, Pilot, and Pirate themed teams.

Yondu has a good mix of standard powers with Sidestep, Force Blast, Energy Shield/Deflection, Toughness, and Perplex. However, where Yondu sets himself apart from other great ranged attackers in the game is with both his trait and his special attack power. His trait, called Yaka Arrow, states that damage dealt by Yondu’s range attacks can’t be reduced below one! Imagine carving through your opponents with that eight range and making sure that even their biggest tank is getting whittled down every round.
