BLOK – HEROCLIX: SUPERMAN AND THE LOS WIZKIDS PREVIEW

Blok looks like a solid figure for 155 points, especially if teamed with White or Black Witch due to his many clicks of impervious.  He can fly, and like most brick figures he has charge throughout his entire dial with destroy blocking and ignore characters his first 4 clicks. He is also a wildcard due to his team ability which makes him a well balanced figure.

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

In the upcoming DC HeroClix: Superman and the Legion of Super Heroes set, we jump to the future and visit earth in the 31st century. With a body made of stone, Blok is one of the more massive and stronger members of the Legion of Super Heroes.

020-Blok

Blok has a trait called For My Love. (Spoiler Alert) When Blok is adjacent to a friendly character named White Witch or Black Witch, that character can use Mastermind, but only to transfer damage to Blok, regardless of his point value.

Blok has a special movement power called Out of the Way, this will allow him to use Charge and Quake. When he uses Charge, he can use Improved Movement and ignores blocking terrain and characters. When he ignores blocking terrain and moves through it he also destroys the blocking terrain. After this power he has 3 clicks of Charge he can just use normally. Blok also over laps the use of Charge with the use of Super Strength on his first 5 clicks.

Blok starts off with 2 clicks of Impervious on his defense and then switches to 3 clicks of a special power called Energy Absorption. This will allow Blok to use Invulnerability but when Blok is the target of a ranged combat attack, he can use Impervious instead. Blok then ends his dial with 2 clicks of ToughnessBlok also get to use Close Combat Expert on clicks 2 and 3 and then again on clicks 5-7.

Blok is 155 points and has the Flier and Indomitable combat abilities. Blok can use the Legion of Super Heroes team ability which would make him a Wild CardBlok also has the Future, Legion of Super Heroes and Mystical keywords.

With the Legion of Super Heroes keyword, Blok would be eligible for 1 of 2 Alternate Team Abilities or ATA’s.

Legionnaires is an additional 2 points per character. When a friendly character with the highest point value that’s using this team ability is KO’d, remove one action token from each other friendly character using this team ability. This would be great when building a Legion of Super Heroes themed team.

Legion Lost is an addition 4 points per character. Once at the beginning of the game, if no character on your force possesses a team ability that isn’t a wild card team ability, choose any one DC team ability other than an additional team ability, a wild card ability, or a team ability that can’t be used by wild cards. Characters using this team ability are not wild cards and can use the chosen team ability if they can’t already.

Thanks for reading and be sure to continue to check back as we look at figures from the upcoming DC HeroClix: Superman and the Legion of Super Heroes set. Until then, Shape Change for the Win!!
