08-06-2013: Just got word on the new "Superman Quick-Start" Kit. I've been saying for years that the game is too complicated for new players, so it pleases me greatly to see this product make it to the shelves. See official details below.
The Superman Quick Start Kit, as its name implies, is an entry-level product designed to allow new players to ease into HeroClix with an easy-to-follow rules document; rather than confront a new player with the 28 page HeroClix Core Rulebook, the enclosed revised two-page Quick Start Rules sheet is a gentler means of introducing new players to the world of HeroClix.
There are three things that may be apparent when looking at these figures: firstly, all of the standard powers listed on the Character Cards offer a brief description of how they work. This enables new players to quickly reference the Character Card while they’re playing to best determine what to do on their turn.
The second thing you may have noticed is both Superman and Lex Luthor are each 100 points.
The third thing that is different about these figures is the inclusion of a purple ring on the Combat Dial. HeroClix veteran players will know that a purple ring on a figure means that this figure is not legal for tournament play.
...the Superman Quick Start Kit is intended to be an evergreen, non-collectible product. This means that we will re-print this Quick Start Kit as demand warrants.
However, if the Tournament legality of these figures is a concern, stores can decide to House Rule these figures as legal for their in-store events (just be sure to post that in your store’s WizKids Event System “House Rules” section!)
The DC HeroClix: Superman Quick Start Kit (SKU 71242) will include the two HeroClix figures above, the Quick Start Rules sheet, and a small (9 x 24) HeroClix map, and is expected to release September 2013.
Retail Price: $4.99
