Clix Beat is a new series of articles that focuses on a single HeroClix figure and some of the great ways to play it on a team. We kick off this new series with an exclusive look at the S.H.I.E.L.D. ENFORCER from the S.H.I.E.L.D. TEAM PACK (this pack also includes Nick Fury and Black Widow).

Right off the bat you’ll notice that the S.H.I.E.L.D. ENFORCER weighs in at just 25 points and has this uber powerful Team Ability:
S.H.I.E.L.D. Adjacent friendly characters modify their range values by +1. Give this character a power action and choose an adjacent friendly character. The chosen character modifies its damage value by +1 while adjacent to this character and making ranged combat attacks this turn.
Just that first part is pretty darned potent. Put 3 of these around Ultron or Professor X and their ranges go from  to an amazing 15… all for just 75 points. Give just 2 of them a power action and NICK FURY (in the same pack) will be going from  damage to 5 damage!
3 clicks of Stealth will keep the S.H.I.E.L.D. ENFORCER well hidden, and he’ll need it because of the average defense values with no damage reduction. But that’s okey, because this figure is first and foremost a utility piece. He’s not meant to be in the front lines, so don’t put him there. Energy Shield/Deflection and Combat Reflexes helps out some, but for the most part you want to keep this guy hidden.
As you can see, the S.H.I.E.L.D. ENFORCER needs to be adjacent to a friendly for proper use as a utlility piece, so don't be afraid to push him in order to get him in position. Another option is to Telekinesis him where you want. Even if you can't use the Power-Action portion of the Team Ability, at least you'll be able to take advantage of the +1 range.
On that note, the S.H.I.E.L.D. ENFORCER is also some good cannon fodder for Mastermind. He's far more useful in other ways, but that option is there if you need it.
