Avengers vs. the Mole Man and the Red Ghost: Classic HeroClix Match-Ups

Avengers #12: “This Hostage Earth!”

“In which the mighty Avengers battle to save their beloved planet from a fate so deadly that none but the macabre Mole Man could have devised it.”

Frightened ants warn Giant Man of an impending disaster, but the other Avengers mock him. But the ants were right! The Mole Man devised a machine that spins the world faster and faster on its axis until all life on earth’s surface is destroyed! Giant Man investigates on his own, but is captured by the Mole Man’s subterraneans.

In the meantime, the Avengers realize that Giant Man was right as the leaning tower of Pisa almost falls over and the Brooklyn Bridge becomes unsafe. How could we have doubted the ants?  Below the surface, the Red Ghost joins the Mole Man. Can the Avengers stop the madmen, rescue Giant Man and save the world?

6 actions per team per turn

The Avengers

  • Thor                       226
  • Iron Man             150
  • Captain America 72
  • Wasp                     77

The Villains

  • Red Ghost           57
  • Rupert                  85
  • 14 moloids          210

Just like in the comic, the villains have some unearthly technology at their disposal!

  • The Red Ghost carries an Atomic cannon, which gives him +2 to his printed damage at a range of 10
  • The Moleman has one attack with hyper ionic rockets which grant him one attack at an attack value of 10, damage 5 at a range of 10.
  • Also, the Villians player can hide a king sized metal fly swatter on the map (just like the Mole Man did in the comic). To do so the player should designate one square on the map by writing it on a piece of paper. If an Avenger passes through the square with the king sized fly swatter, the swatter attacks with an attack value of 10, and a damage of 4.

Good luck! And please email us and let us know who wins in your game!

Original Dark Avengers: Classic Teams

During the Skrull Invasion, Norman Osborn (nee the Green Goblin) pulled together a team of killers and dressed them up as Avengers.

The team during this period included

  • Iron Patriot
  • Sentry
  • Ares
  • Noh-Varr (dressed as Captain Marvel)
  • Moonstone (dressed as Ms. Marvel)
  • Venom
  • Bullseye (dressed as Hawkeye)
  • Daken (dressed as Wolverine)

My HeroClix version of this team is limited by two factors.  #1 I do not own Noh=Varr, Daken or Iron Patriot.  #2.  I can’t quite fit Moonstone or the ATA on a team that is close to a factor of 100 points.

My team for the Dark Avengers is

  • Sentry   300
  • Ares   199
  • Venom   74
  • Bullseye   117

The first battle of Spider-Man vs. the Lizard: Classic HeroClix Match-Ups

Amazing Spider-Man #6:

“Half-Man…Half-Reptile…the Lizard will take over all of the earth unless Spider-Man alone can stop him!”

The Lizard has appeared, “without warning, in the murky swamps of Florida’s Everglades.” In an attempt to regrow his missing arm, Curtis Connors has turned himself into a crazed and aggressive monster. Only Spider-Man can stop him!

Spider-Man 125 vs the Lizard 88.

Just like in the comic, the lizard also has the assistance of four huge obedient alligators. Each is a one click creature with a 5 movement, a 9 attack with blades/claws fangs, a 16 defense with toughness and a 3 damage.

Good luck! And please email us and let us know who wins in your game!

 

The original Brotherhood of Evil Mutants: Classic teams

In the 1960’s, Magneto the master of magnetism gathered a group of mutants to assist him in ruling the human world. For a decade, this brotherhood was locked in battle with the original team of Charles Xavier’s X-Men.

The team during this period included

  • Magneto
  • Blob
  • Unus
  • Quicksilver
  • Scarlet Witch
  • Mastermind
  • Toad

My HeroClix version of this team is limited in only two respects. I do not have a Mastermind piece and my Toad won’t quite fit on the team with a point value divisible by 100. Here is my team.

  • Magneto             189
  • Blob                       76
  • Unus                     90
  • Quicksilver          111
  • Scarlet Witch      29

Tales of Suspense #69: Classic Match-Ups

Tales of Suspense #69 is a classic match-up where Iron Man faces, for the first time, “the monstrous menace of the mind-staggering Titanium Man!”

The Titanium Man issues a challenge to Iron Man, a battle to show whose technology is superior America or the Soviet Union. As Pepper Potts says to Tony Stark when the Titanium Man issues his challenge, “Iron Man will have to fight him, boss…or America might lose face in the eyes of the world!”

Iron Man 300 vs Titanium Man 250.

In order to make the match-up a little more even, the player with the Titanium Man can hide a secret mine field and a modified rocket launcher on the map (just like Titanium Man did in the comic). To do so the player should designate two squares on the map by writing them on a piece of paper. If Iron Man passes through the square with the mine field, he takes 3 points of damage with no roll to hit necessary. If Iron Man passes through the square with the rocket launcher, the launcher fires with an attack value of 10 and a damage of 4.

Good luck! And please email us and let us know who wins in your game!
