Marvel HeroClix Wish-List: The Thing (“Extra Rocky”)(v1.1)

Benjamin “The Thing” J. Grimm, stalwart of the Fantastic Four, Inc. From an impoverished background, eventually degreed in engineering disciplinces, trained and served as a pilot in the U.S.M.C., and afterwards as an astronaut with NASA. But, everyone knows all that pre-FF stuff. So, we’ll skip ahead a bit to “Fantastic Four” #310. Reed “Mr. Fantastic” and Sue “Invisible Woman” Richards are off in the suburbs trying to raise Franklin like they’re “just folks”, leaving Ben Grimm as leader of a very different Fantastic Four: Johnny “Human Torch” Storm, Sharon “Ms. Marvel [II]” Ventura, and Crystal of the Inhumans.

Long story short, Thing and Ms. Marvel end up getting exposed to a “Traditional Marvel Mutagenic Event” ™, the results of which turn Ms. Marvel into “She-Thing” and The Thing into something “Thing-ier”.

There’s an opportunity for a Thing clix with Leadership. Maybe as a Trait?  Would be cool to see a version with Defend as well, or a special power that allows him to grant Mastermind to an adjacent friendly he shares a keyword with (not unprecedented).

Other than that, would like to see multiple starting lines of varying point values.
