Marvel HeroClix: What If? – Runaways: https://wizkids.com/heroclix/2017/06/09/marvel-heroclix-what-if-runaways/ NICE! Missed these ‘previews’ yesterday. Glad to see a new version of ‘Arsenic & Old Lace’.
https://wizkids.com/heroclix/2017/06/07/marvel-heroclix-what-if-punisher/ This is just wild! Shows how fun certain superhero concepts can be in the game of HeroClix, even if the comic book stories they draw from were only “so-so”….
Disclaimer: I’m way, way behind on all the HeroClix releases. HUGE number of characters new and old coming into the game. I love my heroes, but ‘heroes versus heroes’ gets stale, and in order for our heroes to ‘fight the good fight’, somebody’s gotta be out there doing bad stuff. Supervillains are up to no good, heroes gotta fight them. ‘Nuff Said. Marvel supervillain: Doctor Karl Malus. “Evil Scientist.” I’d like to state for the record that real-life scientists are […]
Marvel HeroClix: What If? – In-Betweener: https://wizkids.com/heroclix/2017/05/30/marvel-heroclix-what-if-in-betweener/ What do I still love about the “superhero genre”? The weirdness. What do I still love about clix? Wonderful design. No two ways about it.
I’m having a hard time keeping up with HeroClix, past few years. And I’ve zero time to play the game. Doesn’t keep from buying, doesn’t keep me from chasing down clix for my collection. The main selling points of HeroClix are that it’s a miniatures-based tabletop strategy game using some of *YOUR* favorite comic book superhero characters. But, since ‘heroes versus heroes’ can get a bit stale, it’s fortunate we’re seeing more and more ‘A’-list thru ‘Z’-list “supervillians” getting made […]
Marvel HeroClix: What If? – Daredevil | HeroClix: https://wizkids.com/heroclix/2017/05/25/marvel-heroclix-what-if-daredevil/ “Mainstream” continuity– “What If…?” Love what WizKids is doing with this set. Scott “That Guy” Porter’s Marvel HeroClix: What If? Unboxing Videos | HeroClix: https://wizkids.com/heroclixt/2017/05/22/new-marvel-heroclix-what-if-unboxing-videos/ I tell ya, WizKids has released so many characters that I’ve “hungered” for years for, having to think long and hard about what else I’d like to see or chase down. Not a bad problem to have.
I love Rocket Raccoon. Have, still, in my dwindling comic book collection, the 4-issue limited series from the 1980’s. I keep wondering if there’s room in Marvel Studio’s schedule for R.R. to get a ‘stand-alone’ movie, his own ‘origin story’ movie? More like, he and Groot (or maybe without Groot?) take a break away from the Guatdians, with Rocket secretly following a lead about who he is and where he came from because he’s fonally curious enough and has a […]

Marvel HeroClix: AVENGERS/DEFENDERS WAR: Shifting Focus | HeroClix: http://wizkids.com/heroclix/2017/04/26/marvel-heroclix-avengersdefenders-war-shifting-focus-part-i/ Love this particular use of the “Shifting Focus” design concept. Hmm, so, what’s best? Start game with Incap version? Or with PPB version to position, the SF into RS/Incap, then SG back later? Hmm. WOW. This was unexpected, and is very intriguing! I thought the non-SF version from a previous preview was interesting as well, so, will include it here for comparison–
Opinion: I have not read the currently on-going storyline this version of Steve “Captain America” Rogers is from. I’ve only read about it, and as a fan of Cap and Falc since the 70’s, I’m rather rankled by it. But, have others have said, it’s a stunt-story that needs to finish running its course, doing what Marvel does: tap into current current political and pop culture, hold up its twisted mirror to it. I don’t have to like it, don’t […]

(The various verions of the batttlesuit have a lot of offensive capabilities, though, so i hope they reuse the sculpt and come out with a version with range and other standard powers. I’M NOT COMPLAINING. Thank you, WizKids!) Also, i forgot to post the GotGv2 preview, and can’t get to WK’s post for some reason, so here’s the character pic —

So, I’m at work (on a Sunday) trying to catch up on paperwork (so i can actually build on Monday, rather than get ‘trapped’ at my desk), and remember, “Holy Smokes, I still have a case of DC Comics HeroClix THE JOKER’S WILD back at my humble adobe that I never opened!” That’s from November. Then I think, “Man, what’s due to come out next?!” Been so busy with work and parents/grandparent stuff, it just hit me that it’s February […]
Just got out of the 3pm 3D matinee of “Doctor Strange”. Mind-bending fun. Draws from Marvel’s past stories, tells its own story, sows elements for future stories. Wonderful, fantastic stuff. EDIT: Decisions, decisions. Would like to see another movie this weekend. “Hacksaw Ridge”? Looks great. Love historically-based movie, especially when faithful to the source, which is what i hear about HR. FROM NPR NEWS: The Real ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ Soldier Saved 75 Souls Without Ever Carrying A Gun http://n.pr/2f5I1oP ——— *Might* just […]

Marvel’s [under-used] Shooting Star! Personally, having only encountered her in the “West Coast Avengers” comics and the Official Handbooks back in the 1980’s, I didn’t know that in her initial appearances she could fly! Opinion: They should have kept that! She doesn’t need to be as fast Northstar and/or Aurora, os as aerobaticly agile as The Angel. Maybe they could take a tack from Marvel’s “Golden Age” Miss America? Or, rather how “Golden Age” Miss America is interpreted these days, as […]
Marvel’s supervillain: Brain Drain! I do NOT have the issues of “The Invaders” this guy appears in, or any appearances of him. I just stumbled across this guy while looking for another obscure Marvel Comics villain. (I’ll get to that on some other time.) I love the “Evil Brain” trope of supervillains. Just the weirdness of the ‘disembodied brain in a jar’, love it. Then stick that jar on top of a robot body and — blammo — instant HeroClix “Want”. […]
Marvel’s Peregrine! Named after a species of Falcon, he’s the third of four Marvel character that I know of to essentially go by the name “Falcon”. This guy’s the French version, based out of Paris, France. I’m a little fuzzy on this character’s “origin”; professionally, he’s “gifted writer”. He’s worked for Silver Sable’s mercenary organization. Has helped Black Widow covertly enter France. How in the heck does he come by his anti-grav super-suit? Smells like a French government operation to me…. Highly […]
The Savage Land Mutates! I’m very surprised that, with anything X-Men related being so successful for HeroClix, that we haven’t seen this bunch in an X-Men set. writeups.org: Savage Land Mutates. Will edit-in suggestions later today….. EDIT (2016-09-23): Well, so much for “later today.” More like, “here and there, when I can.” BARBAROUS: 7-ft tall, Toughness, four-sided Flurry, Super Strength special involving hold two Light Objects at the same time. Brute, brawler, straightforward. AMPHIBIUS: Extremely mutated human, frog-like. [Dolphin] movement […]
