Top Ten Needed Changes in 2014 update: Three down

May 22, 2014


So a little while back (y’know, when I used to update this blog every other day back in April), I had a Top Ten list of changes the game needs: Highfather Resources Arwen Incapacitate  Science Police Officer Super Strength Tellus Brother Voodoo Iron Pharaoh/Regeneration Injustice League We got three of them when Highfather, Arwen and […]

No. 3 Arwen Yeah, she’s Golden Age. But so are a fair number of brand-new figs these days. And like Brother Voodoo, she’s become one of those pieces that’s so good that she’s an auto-pick. She needs a fix. The trouble with her is her epic action trait that allows her to repeatedly deal multiple […]

No. 6 Super Strength   Though it was helped a little by the added ability to set down objects as well as pick them up, Super Strength still suffers from the modern game’s scarcity of objects. Now, with ultra-light objects in the game, this power may have even less to work with. So Heroclixin’ proposes […]

No. 8 Brother Voodoo He survived the first Watch List intact because its changes affected him. However, he’s still such a good piece and priced so cheaply that he’s almost an auto-pick for any competitive team today. And whenever any element is an auto-pick, there’s likely a game balancing issue. The trouble with BV is […]

No. 10 [tie] Injustice League team ability This was on the 2011 list and it still hasn’t changed for the better. Worse, there are actually new characters recently given the TA, and it never gets used. So the No. 10 Most Needed Change in HeroClix is to change this: “Whenever a character using the Injustice […]

Top Ten FAVORITE of 2013: [No. 1]

January 31, 2014


No. 1 —tie— Mysterio [ASM 026 and 206] Multiple Man [WXM 013 and 205] WHY I WANTED THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE: Well, both are longtime favorite characters of mine. I became a Madrox fan back in Peter David’s first X-Factor run and even more so with the character’s solo mini that led into the […]

Top Ten FAVORITE of 2013 [No. 2]

January 30, 2014


No. 2 War Machine [Invincible Iron Man 029b] WHY I WANTED HIM IN THE FIRST PLACE: I actually DIDN’T. At ALL. Let me explain. I was highly annoyed that War Machine’s prime variant was just the same character as the main version. Typically, primes have been more divergent or, at a minimum, named differently. Catwoman […]

Top Ten FAVORITE of 2013 [No. 3]

January 29, 2014


No. 3 Static [Teen Titans 045] WHY I WANTED HIM IN THE FIRST PLACE: He’s really the foremost and best Milestone Comics character, the one to hit it big and cross over first to the DC universe proper. I’m an old-school Static fan from when his comic was new. (It still bugs me a little […]

January 28, 2014


The Daughters of the Dragon are No. 4: Colleen Wing and Misty Knight [Amazing Spider-Man 044] WHY I WANTED THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE: Read this post. Wishes do come true, right down to most of the powers I wanted. I WANT TO RUN THEM EVERY WEEK BECAUSE: Again, see above. But more than that, […]
