If you saw last month’s article, you know that Justice League Unlimited is bringing brand-new Team Up Cards to HeroClix. In case you missed it, these cards are freebies that you’ll be able to swap out your regular HeroClix card at the beginning of the game for a super-charged one that gives big bonuses for playing thematic teams!
One of the things that we’ve found is exciting about the Team Up cards is that it gives players something different to collect. Justice League Unlimited Boosters are going to feel jam-packed with rare items! While not everyone is going to try and chase down every Team Up card, they might trade for their favorite character’s card (ours is Shining Knight), or the cards from their favorite episode (like Double Date), or maybe even just some of the more memorable moments (like Hawkgirl in Wake the Dead)!
We’re looking at a fun group within the Justice League today – the Seven Soldiers of Victory! They were featured in several classic comics as well as the beloved Patriot Act episode of Justice League Unlimited. Shining Knight’s Team Up card is the backbone of this team with his Episode Team Up ability. Essentially, with all Seven Soldiers of Victory on the map, you’ll be able to ensure your minimum attack roll is a 7 if it isn’t a critical miss. Even at their lower point values – all the Seven Soldiers are going to be able to get to at least a 17. They can get to 18 or 19 via Perplex from Stargirl and Crimson Avenger!
One of the neat things about these figures is their multiple starting lines. If you haven’t collected them all yet you could play Stargirl or S.T.R.I.P.E. for a higher amount of points. Depending on which Green Arrow you use, you’ll either have a 255-point or 265-point team, leaving enough room for one more character. One team we’ve been having fun with uses The Question. His ability to keep a d6 on his card will help you ensure a big roll if you ever need one, at almost no cost to your current attacks with Shining Knight.
Another option we enjoyed was using Hawkgirl as a bonus attacker! She’s got great mobility, solid damage, and reliable attack. She’s also another source for the Justice League Unlimited trait. With 7 characters on your team using this effect, most of the time you’ll be removing AT LEAST one action token from one of your Justice Leaguers!
We also mentioned Hawkgirl’s Wake the Dead card – it’s highly thematic and pairs with some awesome characters: Superman, Green Lantern, Doctor Fate, Amazo, and Vixen. Check it out below and see what fun teams you’re able to come up with on your own! We hope that these Team Up cards add something new and fun to collecting and playing HeroClix – check it out for yourself on a tabletop near you!
