Upfront: I’m actually more of a “Marvel Zombie” (fan of Marvel Comics’ characters, like Captain America, Spider-Man, She-Hulk, etc.) than I am a “DC Drone” (fan of DC Comics’ characters like Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, the Flash, etc.). That said, I like both superhero genre narrative universes, and have deep affection for Batman and his “Rogues Gallery” of adversaries. (And The Flashes “Rogues Gallery” as well. Flash, Batman, and Spider-Man probably have the most diverse and ‘iconic’ selections, for […]
UPDATE (2016-04-24): Kept meaning to do homemade HeroClix “Ret-Con Traits” for old DC Comics HeroClix UNLEASHED set Kobra and Kobra Fanatic clix. Kobra is both an individual (in the ‘dark savior’ mold) and international underworld religious cult, a creation for DC Comics during the 1970’s by Jack “King” Kirby. So, here we go — Homemade Ret-Con “Tweak”: addition of the keyword “Kobra” for UNLEASHED’s all levels of Kobra, the Jason Burr “Limited Edition”, and all levels of Kobra Fanatic, since […]
Once again, would like to state that I’m more of a “Marvel Zombie” than a “DC Drone”. I remember reading one comic in my youth with this DC Comics villain — Sonar — in it. He was fighting the JL. Don’t remember what the story was about. Remember his “Napoleon” look and the “tuning fork gun”. I went looking for info on him recently. What a mess. Apparently, the name has been used by a couple different DC Comics characters. […]
Disclaimer 1: I’m more of a “Marvel Zombie” than a “DC Drone”, but I love both superhero genre “narrative universes”. Disclaimer 2: I haven’t bought even a trade paperback collection of an title for either ‘universe’ for over a year. I’m way behind. That said, I’m in no way opposed to “new” characters showing up in HeroClix before “old” characters. “New, old, marquee, obscure, supporting”…wanna clix ’em all. MR. TERRIFIC! Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mister_Terrific_(comics) Specifically, the second person to carry the mantle, […]
Excellent “UnClixed” article over on HCRealms.com today focusing on an “obscure” 1980’s-era supervillain named “Bolt”. Got me reminiscing. I only have a few issues of the 80’s Blue Devil comics (if they’re still with my collection in my storage locker, and I didn’t give them away or sell or destroy them already). Bolt was in two of them. The 80’s and early 90’s was when I was heavy into comics, grade school through college and into my first 4 years […]
Hoping to get out to see the movie “RACE” next weekend. Jesse Owens’ story also inspired DC Comics to create a superher back in the 1980’s for thier “All-Star Squadron” comic, set during WWII: Amazing-Man! Would like to see him clixed, both with his original “Absorbing Man”-like powers and his later telekinesis powers.
Favorite Discontinued Elements? – HeroClix Realms: http://www.hcrealms.com/forum/showthread.php?&p=8549591#post8549591 Fun thread. I don’t mis Feat cards. I do wish they had optional “Feat” effects available on character cards (said that here before). Battlefield Condition cards: I miss the effects, not the way you had to use them. Love what WF9 and Avengersman89 came up with, a new “sequence”. (Have said before on this blog, though, about printing a selection of optional BFC effects on maps, appropriate to the maps, numbered for a […]
EDIT (2016-02-09): Okay, so back when I did this “Wish-List” post, I had no clue Blackbriar Thron was already on his way into the game with February’s Dc HeroClix WORLD’S FINEST set. Keep that in mind. Blackbriar Thorn! DC Comics character. “Druid priest” (as far as comics go, basically another “wizard”) from the era of Ancient Rome. So, depending on what writer/artist team is doing the story, Blackbriar either looks completely human or he still looks like an animated wooden […]
You know, I’m more of a “Marching Marvel Zombie” than a “Devout DC Drone”, but I still love DC’s stuff. Never been much of a fan of Supergirl (preferring the *other* superman-derivative character, Power Girl, who has a cooler ‘tude). Loving the sculpt and dial of this version.
With a set name like SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN, you had to see this guy coming — Man, that the effect provided by “Spawn of Apokolips” Trait should have been on pretty much every HC Superman, ever. Too bad that couldn’t be the definition of the Superman Ally team ability. Or, maybe it could? Playing a lot of D3 GO!’s “Marvel PuzzleQuest” game. The “conditional” effects of many of the powers sported by characters in that game has me rethinking some of […]
EDIT (2015-05-17): Originally posted 2011-03-14. Significant changes in the game since then. Updating, upgrading, reposting. Language cribbed from GG026 Mole Man’s “Mole Man’s Monsters” special power. Works for me. The Rookie was fun to run in a 200-point battle, using some HIVE generics. I might just try something like this for the old DC UNLEASHED R/E/V Queen Bee….
EDIT (2015-05-19): Originally posted 2010-11-02. (Love the fact that WordPress saves copies of every draft and revision of a post. Wishing I’d never deleted some posts, just moved them back into draft mode.) Revised, reposted. Completely re-doing some Ret-Con Traits for a very old version of Superman. Just trying to keep some really old clix relevent in today’s game. Enjoy.
Quick one today, a homemade “Ret-Con Trait” for the venerable HeroClix “dynamic duo” of Hawk & Dove. I may — *may* — pad out the entry later. These old Steve Ditko/Steve Skeates creations from the 1960’s have seen numerous incarnations in both the comics and in HeroClix. Might be worth posting the other versions’ dials, for comparison’s sake. Until such a time, the homemade “Ret-Con Trait” [inspired by various “linked” and “Minion” special powers over the past couple of years] […]
Homemade Ret-Con Trait: “Telekinetic Bolts and Mental Illusions” If this character is the only one on your force with this name and set symbol, it may use Energy Shield/Deflection, Sidestep, and Force Blast. Once again I must say: I’m more of a Marvel guy than a DC Comics guy. But, I like seeing heroes square off against “good” (conceptually) supervillains than against other superheroes. And DC hero The Flash has one of the best “Rogues Galleries” out there. I’ve only caught 5 […]
Homemade Ret-Con Trait: “Queen Zazzala’s Insect Control & Alien Hypno-Pollen” If this character is the only one on your force with this name and set symbol, it can use the following abilities: Queen Bee may use Smoke Cloud. When Queen Bee uses Poison damage dealt is penetrating. When Queen Bee uses Mind Control and targets opposing characters within half her range value, modify her attack value by +3. A version of the character I’d like to see again. Wouldn’t mind […]
EDIT (2015-02-16): Revising and reposting a homemade “Ret-Con Trait” ability for ye olde DC HeroClix HYPERTIME set (2002) Plastic Man, a “Rookie/Experienced/Veteran” interpretation. [Original post was 2011-06-24.] Also, going to include in this revision the only other two versions of Plastic Man we have in clix-form [so far], with some “Ret-Con Traits” that I hope are fun. I will not spend a lot of time with “commentary”. For the old HYPERTIME REV, the homemade “Ret-Con Trait” is: Minion: “Hey, […]
http://www.heroclix.com keeps on rolling out the previews of its up-coming DC Comics’ HeroClix set, TRINITY WAR. Shaggy Man! Heh. DC Comics first debuted the character in 1966. Despite looking like the mythical “Bigfoot” (“Sasquatch”), he’s actually a robot. Power level? Up there with Marvel Comics’ The Hulk. Fun stuff.
The Guardian, a DC Comics’ superhero. Patterned on Captain America, to a degree. He was, after all, created by the team of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, the guys who created (but ultimately didn’t own) the character of Captain America for Timely Comics (the company that became Marvel Comics). Captain America first appeared in Captain America Comics #1 first hit the stands in March of 1941, and became a great success for Timely. Joe & the King would try a couple […]
Upfront: I’m actually more of a “Marvel Guy” than a “DCC Guy”. As far as the game of HeroClix goes, I’m always up for a few “good” (as in notorious, dastardly, weird, monstrous, and/or scary) supervillains to make it into the game. DC villain team, The Brotherhood of Evil, hasn’t had much exposure in clix. Plenty of exposure in the comics and in cartoons. They originally debuted in the comics in 1964, as foes of the Doom Patrol, and by […]
WizKids slipped in another DC HeroClix TRINITY WAR preview yesterday, with two versions of The Outsider. It’s been great — over the last few years especially — to get more of the DC Comics’ supervillains for our intrepid heroes to fight against. TW looks to both reintroduce previously clixed villains, and bring in more than a few “new” clix.
