Welcome back to another X-hilirating preview from the Wolverine and the X-Men set, our next Marvel HeroClix release! #Today’s preview takes us back to the Mojoverse, where we focus our cameras on a former stuntwoman who often works for the ratings-obssessed Mojo and has a deep hatred for her former flame, Longshot. Last seen in the Marvel HeroClix: Xplosion set, heeeerrrreeee’s Spiral!
I like it. I send Superman Beyond through and make an attack that hits on the other teams Alpha strike piece. I send him to my starting area where Leash is waiting to capture him. I have another figure by the Bat Signal and bring Supes back. What's not to like.
Does this piece seem insanely broken to anyone else? Or at least undercosted? First turn, opposing player goes or you pass your first turn and then supreme alpha strike with all your other character with one double power action? Not to mention Flurry/Charge/Blades with 11 later in her dial.
She looks crazy powerful and, for what you are getting, incredibly cheap.
EDIT: For a positive, extremely cool sculpt and comic accurate!
They've recently fixed their error by changing Xplosion to Clobberin Time. As for Spiral, I was expecting her to have the Reavers keyword, but otherwise, I'm not complaining. Always loved her, and I will be using her quite a bit! Move over Barda, Spiral is in town!
If you dont have the "remove gateway tokens" listed first, then technically, there could be 4 gateway tokens on the table at a time, and then confusions about which ones you are allowed to travel thru
I completely get what you're saying.
Thing is, my little brain sometimes lets my fingers/mouth act first. >.<
It makes perfect sense that WK would introduce a groovy new mechanic like 'gateways'....I just assumed (making a total *** of myself in the process) that this gateway deal was exclusive to Spiral.
