Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Today’s preview brings us to the dreaded Dark Dimension. Long ruled by Dormammu and his sister Umar, the Dark Dimension is surrounded by several chaotic and dangerous realms, including the home of the Mindless Ones!
The Mindless Ones are feared throughout the Marvel Universe for their savagery and power, and this figure does not disappoint! The Indomitable combat ability allows the Mindless One to act without fear of pushing damage, and early dial Penetrating/Psychic Blast and an 8 Range value make the Mindless One an imposing figure on the battlefield. Impervious protects the Mindless Ones from all manner of attacks and foes. Penetrating/Psychic Blast gives way to Super Strength for some close combat work (another specialty of the ever-dangerous Mindless Ones) while Impervious becomes Invulnerable (and later Toughness) to protect the Mindless Ones from harm.
Indeed, every click of the Mindless One’s dial allows for damage reduction, and with consistent combat values the Mindless One is an excellent value at 100 points for a mid-range “brick” on your teams. Add in the Mystics Team ability and the Mindless One becomes doubly dangerous and useful! Whether you take advantage of the team ability by including some wild card figures on your force, or simply enjoy the damage your opponents’ figures will take when they attack your Mindless Ones, the Mystics team ability is an excellent addition to the figure.
That’s all we have for today and we hope that you enjoyed this preview as much as we. In fact, the Mindless One is one of my favorite figures from Giant-Size X-Men and I know that many of you will enjoy fielding this piece in tournaments at your local venue. Stay tuned because our travels will take us to the land “down under” for our next scheduled preview on Friday! Until then, keep on clixin’!
