I remember my brother using vet Ultron with enhancement and shield during a tournament way back in the day against a dude who was camping on the roof with a similar team fronted by Dr. Strange. my brother triple targeted ee on the guy and rolled a crit hit thus knocking the guys entire team off the roof.

Got the worst pulls for ASM marquee event at my LCS. Super rares, primes and chases being opened on all sides of me. Very disheartening. Pulled moon knight and Miles as my rares. Two Terrax teams were played. One with Miles and the other with Madame Webb.
I ended up running Dr Druid, Electro, and Daimon Hellstrom at full point value.
Brutalised the competition with commons! 3-0, all clean ups, and never lost a character.
The damage output was insane! TK and PC on a sealed team? Ludicrous!
Never had to play against a Terrax team since they both performed poorly in the first round. Out actioned a Blackheart team and ruined his support. Kept him on lockdown in a corner and he just couldn't get out.
One game I positioned at the top of the stairs (Sanctum Sanctorum ASM map) on my first turn with Electro. The opponent knew how electro worked so he positioned behind the walls on level one ready to come barreling down the hallway and up the stairs on his next turn. Electro could see no clix from his perch atop the stairs. But he could see an object that could see the entire enemy team. So he shot it. and proceeded to shoot up the entire opposing force for like 12 damage spread around the team. All downhill from there.
Just an amazing night of clix for me. Brand new set that I wanted very much. Just terrible first booster pulls. But I learned just how Amazing this Spiderman set was.
Commons and uncommons for the Win!
Also, my prize for winning that night was 4 boosters. All four had rares in them. The other packs in the brick that went to fellowship(4) and 2nd, contained a Primegoblin, Dusk, Terrax, M.Webb and 2099 Spidey. Lame.
But I had a ton of fun playing with clix that might have normally taken a backseat to SRs and chases and may have not been played for quite some time. At this point I have used most of the ASM set except for a few SRs and almost none of the chases. Only 3-4 CURs left to play. Normally I would still have 15+ CURs left over that would never get played and end up in the bins. This set made me look at clix from a different perspective than I had been.
It's a good thing
TEAL? Teal is for people who have not yet mastered sarcasm to the point it is always evident, even in text form
During NML 6 we played thematic teams depending on what gang we represented. I was GCPD and I had no expectation of winning so I played lots of generics.
The greatest moment was when my GCPD Riot Officer, on his last click, was adjacent to Superman 001 at 300pts, who was also on his last click. It gets to my turn and my Riot Officer took his billy club to Superman's face for the KO.
Best thing that happened all day!

- I hadn't been playing long, so I didn't know much about Frog Thor. We were playing multiple players per map, most points wins. I had KC Crisis Supes takin' swings at him turn after turn, but he kept hitting his Impervious roles. Meanwhile, Throg had crushed a number of figs early-game, so by time I hit him and killed him, I was thinking "I must have just earned a TON of points for that guy........WHAT?! He's only 72 points!" Everyone had a good laugh, and I knew instantly that Throg was a piece that I HAD to have. I eventually traded for the very one that caused me so much frustration.
Also played a game where time was about to run out on the round, and I was about to win based on points earned. I decided to be greedy and boost my points total overall in the tourney by pushing, making one last attack and hopefully ko'ing one last fig. I thought "why not? Worst that could happen is I miss, and the game ends anyway"
Except I didn't know my hired henchman only had four clicks, and I was on his last (EVERY figure has at least five clix, right?!). I missed the attack roll, the pushing damage killed my henchman, giving my opponent enough points to win the game.
CBowen333, Dr. Druid is the MVP of the set. I played him until my friends all started vowing his destruction.
Our venue made real efforts to support clix during the dead period. Once a month we would have a big tourney with a $10 entry and a really nice price (CR100 Superman, colossal, etc.) The one kid (he was 16, I think) would only ever show up to these big tourneys, and he always brought a version of the same team. KC Flash, Edward Nigma, Con Artist, plus points to fill.
I was playing a Skrull team with Ms. Skrullvel, Skrul-o-jacket, and others. I was down to Skrullvel on one of her so-so clix KC Flash was still on his top click. I needed an 11 to hit Flash and if I missed, he would finish me off. I rolled a Critical Hit. Everyone burst out in cheers and applause. The kid picked up his stuff and walked out of the store.
Any time you beat a cheese team with your fun team is noteworthy in my book. My favorite was easily a custom scenario (no fliers, no damage above 2 on any part of the dial). I ended up going with an A.I.M. team lead by Batroc. I guess it was slightly meta with three perplexers, but I did it specifically so I could mod all of the generics to look like Batroc. I mostly threw my pieces at my opponents like good A.I.M. mooks, anyways. Last team was pretty meta as far as my venue goes, IM GF Punisher with full belt and support. Guy played the usual "Camp in stealth and spin the belt" strategy. He started picking off my pieces so I rushed him and hoped for the best. He ended up over-spinning his dial (anything but a six, which he rolled) and my A.I.Marine hulks managed to put him out.
