Heroclix ClixCraves: Marvel Team-UpWelcome to another edition of ClixCraves! ClixCraves is a series of articles discussing HeroClix figures we want to see in the future. Our selection criteria can be new never-before-seen figures, or it could be a request for remakes of old figures.

Today we're going to look at one of the most underused mechanics in HeroClix: Duo figures! Specifically, we want to see what Duo figures would look like from the Marvel Team-Up comic book series. You remember Marvel Team-Up, don't you? It ran for almost 10 years and featured mostly Spider-Man.

So what would these dials look like? Well, we'll start off with Spider-Man and Daredevil...

HeroClix Marvel Team-Up Spider-Man Daredevil


 

From wikipedia: Marvel Team-Up is the name of several American comic book series published by Marvel Comics. The series featured two or more Marvel characters in one story. The original series was published from March 1972 through February 1985, featuring Spider-Man as the lead "team-up" character in all but nine of its 150 issues; of the remainder the Human Torch and the Hulk starred in six and three issues, respectively. When cancelled, the title was replaced by Web of Spider-Man.

Since the duos first premiered long ago, Marvel team up seems a natural fir. Surprisingly, there are no duos featuring Spider-man to date.

Not a fan of duos. Just feel restrictive. I'd rather have the two solo pieces so I can run either one with whatever other characters I want to run.

As an action figure collector, I cannot tell you the number of times I have been annoyed that I had to buy a multi pack with characters I did not want in it in order to get the figure I wanted. Sometimes you can split a 2 pack or trade the unwanted pieces away.

The other thing is that splitting leaves your pieces with an action token and unable to do anything else this turn (unless I misunderstand the current ruling on these).

I know WK has not put many duos in the last few sets, but every time I see a Miracle Barda duo figure it makes me wish they had skipped that and given us a new character, like Forager.

Now I've had a chance to read this article I WANT THESE CLIX! The duo mechanic is a really nice idea but is usually poorly executed. Eric has done a great job of ensuring most powers given are actually compatible with duo attack (the whole purpose of a duo figure after all!). My favourite bits are...
1) Batter up Goldilocks: such a useful power with great synergy for a follow up duo attack next turn
2)The squabbling "I've got this" on the human torch pairing
3) The wolvie/spiderman split. I like it when Wizkids do this on the back end of a duo dial and like it just as much here too. Eric's even remembered to prevent healing past click 5!

The bits I dislike? Only 2 really
1) Is Spider-Man and Doctor Stranges special token power and defence a bit too good? Maybe just if you end your turn in a special marker should you take damage.
2) Wolverines ignore penetrating may need rewording. Does he ignore the damage completely or just the penetrating aspect (so he always uses toughness)?

Thanks both for this article and roll on some more decent Duos in clixdom!

@Mantis Warrior: Front Page corrected! Thanks!

@ The Le: Your home page link takes you to the top 10 Spider-Man comic covers rather than this article. Just a heads-up!
