Marvel HeroClix NICK FURY, AGENT OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Preview: Plan Chu, a.k.a “The Golden Claw”! (v1.2)

YES! Big want over the years, a “Fu Manchu”-style badass is finally coming to clix, as previewed today over on heroclix.com: The Golden Claw!

I hope that this won’t be the only time we get him, but, man, finally, he’s in The Game!

EDIT: Although I like the depiction here — one popular late 1960’s through the mid 1980’s — I do wish they could have done a “robe and hat” version. It was a style from the 1950’s, and seen again in Jeff Parker/Leonard Kirk’s “Agents of Atlas” 2006 mini-series.

Then again, they could always do a version in the future with a sculpt like that, and make him more of a “behind the scenes” character-as-Resource-dial kinda thing.

EDIT II: You know, as far as the “Marvel Cinematic Universe” goes…. Marvel Studios is doing a “Dr. Strange” movie. Presumably it mixes Ditko/1960’s psychedlia, 1970’s “The Exorcist”/”The Omen” occult/horror, and more modern sensibilities.

Could Marvel do a movie or TV “MAOS” episodes with the “Agents of Atlas”? Maybe make AoA sort of its analog of “Hellboy & the B.P.R.D. [Bureau of Paranormal Research & Defense]”? Mike Mignola/Dark Horse Comics/Guillermo del Toro had a cool way of mixing European folklore, Victorian Era occultism, WWII-era grit and grime. AOAtlas could be very cool. [Heh, the “Hellboy” movie theme music is running through my Mind’s Ear right now.]
