http://wizkids.com/2017/01/24/dc-comics-heroclix-superman-vs-muhammad-ali-convention-exclusive/ Okay, I managed to completely miss this announcement. Very cool design work. *sigh* And it looks like it’ll be hard for me to get. Nutz. But, that’s what eBay is for. I actually have a tattered “Treasury Edition” version of the comic, bought it at a flea market back in the 1980’s. Man, what memories.
DC HeroClix Justice League & Justice Society Thanksgiving Teams – HeroClix by Wizkids Games: http://heroclix.com/strategy-article/dc-heroclix-justice-league-justice-society-thanksgiving-teams/ I completely missed WizKids posting this last week. Time to catch up. Their article showcases two pieces from last week’s DC HeroClix THE JOKER’S WILD set release, as well as ‘older’ pieces from DC HeroClix WORLD’S FINEST and SUPERMAN / WONDER WOMAN releases.
Saw the 5:30pm showing of “Suicide Squad”. Short answer: I liked it. Way, way more fun than “Batman v. Superman”. Caveat: I’m very forgiving of superhero genre movies. More comments later, maybe tomorrow. EDIT I: As with “Man of Steel” and BvS, I end up liking the actors, really like certain “moments” (“character beats”), and certain scenes or exchanges of dialog between characters, and become really forgiving of some definite…. “choppiness”?…. of these movies overall. For example, “best superhero movie […]
Hoping to see Batman v. Superman this weekend. bit of trepidation after hearing both of these: http://2016/03/24/471730893/batman-takes-on-superman-in-a-dour-bombastic-dawn-of-justice — and — 2016/03/24/471717676/fun-and-entertainment-are-collateral-damage-in-batman-v-superman “What comic fans expect…” As in, “what they expect [or demand] out of a superhero movie”…. I’m not sure. Can only speak for myself. Favorite ‘comic book superhero’ genre movies so far: Captain America: The Winter Soldier Captain America: The First Avenger Tied: all the MCU movies. Both Hellboy movies. [EDIT (2026-03-25): Well, and the Nolan/Bale “Batman” flicks.] [EDIT […]
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 (2015-05-19): 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.
Wow, I got so used to WizKids not doing the previews so much anymore, that I missed these previews over on http://www.heroclix.com for the upcoming DC Comics HeroClix TRINITY WAR set.
EDIT: Originally posted 13 SEP 2011. Revised, reposted. Lex Luthor. He’s been portrayed as a battle-suited super-scientist and as a power-suited businessman, and always as a genius who tends towards criminal activities. The much-maligned Lex Luthor unique from COSMIC JUSTICE (2003), CJ#089 @ 69 points. “Hailed” as an utter piece of crap on a dial back then. Looks like he was meant to be a “leader” type. Too expensive and weak for the role, though. Even back then. Doesn’t bring enough […]
