I have been involved in a lot of discussion recently about the decision to make the upcoming Star Trek Heroclix Modern Age compatible. While not met with open hostility most people either groan or sigh at the prospect. Cognitive Dissonance is a phrase repeated about these issues. I personally don’t expect any mental discomfort from a Klingon Warship launching a B/F/C attack on Wolverine but at the same time I’m not chomping at the bit for it to happen. While considering the possibility of Spider-Man placing a web terrain marker on the Enterprise, I started thinking about where the line must be drawn (if at all).
I now feel very much like I did about 30 minutes into Snakes on a Plane. After several gruesome snakebites I began to wonder how many more ways a snake could bite a person. “Well at least no one’s been bitten in the junk” I thought to myself in the nearly empty theatre on opening night. Spoiler Alert: it happens.
I think we’ve nearly entered that territory with Heroclix. I don’t wish to admonish the people behind this, but rather encourage them. I embrace the ridiculousness of our game and humbly submit Ideas for Heroclix that could never possibly be made, knowing full well it might come back to bite me in the junk.
A Bruce Willis Action pack - featuring John McClane (Special Power: Who Needs Shoes: after John crosses a square of Debris he gains the stealth ability), Lt. Muldoon from Grindhouse, and Harry Stamper from Armageddon (unsure of the special power here, some sort of last click self sacrifice that heals friendlies).
Power Ranger Clix - Five 100 point figures that have a final click to transform into a colossal megazord.
