HeroClix is a game of battling superheroes, with you in control of your fave comic book characters. We've checked out the basics on it before, but what's up with it now? It started off with all the basic heroes from Marvel and DC comics - Batman, Spider-Man, the X-Men and more. But, it's been growing and keepin' up with all the latest comic books and movies. Now it has indy comic characters like Hellboy, Ultimates superheroes and more. Here's the scoop on where HeroClix is at.


DC, Marvel and Indy HeroClix Game History

The HeroClix game started it up with classic Marvel heroes and villains back in 2002. Then, the DC crew rolled out with Batman, Superman and the rest of the big names in the same year. Being able to mix 'n match the two games was a wicked way to have your fave heroes and villains battle in adventures you make up yourself. Then, in October 2003, the Indy HeroClix game brought tons of extra characters to the game. Hellboy, Judge Dread and the Danger Girls were just a few of the new heroes to join the battle.


The New Stuff in the DC, Marvel and Indy HeroClix Game

The latest set was the Marvel HeroClix: Mutant Mayhem set and it has tons of cool new stuff. Check out the list:

  • Character Tokens - Tokens to show classic bystanders like Aunt May and others.
  • Battlefield Conditions - Cards that change the battlefield with weather and other effects.
  • Feats - Cards you can pay for to give your superheroes extra powers.
  • Giant Characters - Giant-Man is the first of these super-sized figs that can take up a ton of space in a battle!

    In March 2005 the DC HeroClix Legacy expansion drops with a "Girl Power" theme. For starters, you'll get the same Character Tokens, Battlefield Conditions and Feats as the Marvel Mutant Mayhem expansion. But, you get a whole bunch of cool DC heroes instead and the Giant Character is Steel - a 50-foot tall butt-kickin' girl with a huge hammer!
