There's been lots of HeroClix Sets sold since the game started in 2002, and there's clearly many more to come. While we've been impressed with what we've seen so far, there's plenty more we'd like to see. Well, DC Hypertime was pretty awful, but Wizkids sure impressed us with everything else!
Of our personal favorites, DC Legacy is tops, followed closely by Marvel Mutations & Monsters and the original Indy set (yes, I said Indy!). Below is our list of 8 new complete HeroClix sets we'd like to see. This isn't a difinitive list by any means, but it sure would be great to see them!
#8 Marvel What If...?
The What If... books have been around since 1977, but they're some of the best stories around, if only because nearly every book is a self contained single-issue story. To the right is one of our favorite stories, which ended with Wolverine becoming the head of S.H.I.E.L.D. (that's the Supreme Headquarters International Espionage Law-enforcement Division for you true believers out there).
Here are some of our favorite What If... issues:
-What if... Spider-man joined the Fantastic Four?
-What if... X-men lost Inferno? (Evil Wolverine eating humans!)
-What if... Spider-man had not married Mary Jane? (no, this isn't the uber lame Brand New Day storyline)
-What if... Fantastic Four all had the Same Power?
-What if... Spider-man Kept his Six Arms?
-What if... Venom had Possessed the Punisher?
-What if... Doom became Sorcerer Surpreme?
There's so many to choose from, and they'd all have very interesting sculpts and powers. And for the mail-away figure, I recommend issue #49: What if... Silver Surfer Possessed the Infinity Gauntlet?
See all the covers here.
#7 IndyClix II
The original Indy HeroClix set didn't do very well I'm afraid; even today you can find packs of IndyClix in your local discount bin. This set had numerous problems -- lack of known figures, too much Blades/Claws/Fangs, and the lack of flyers (there were only two in the set). That being said, I absolutely love the Indy set and I firmly believe it's one of the most balanced and underrated sets out there.
There's a few things that can be done to make a newer IndyClix set successful, and it all comes down to character choices. Topping the list should be Dark Horse and Image. Sure, Image is the company that people love to hate, but you can't deny that it's got some of the most recognizable characters to the average comic book reader (which is also the HeroClix player base).
Dark Horse has the luxury of movie/comic characters, which could help it's marketing immensely. We're talking about Sin City, The Mask, Barb Wire, and others. Heck, how about some more HorrorClix/HeroClix crossover dials? There's no reason we can't get some Buffy the Vampire Slayer and more Hellboy figures. Personally I would love to see CONCRETE make it's way into HeroClix Form.
On the Image side, the sky's the limit. Spawn and Savage Dragon are a must in my opinion, while some team books such as Cyberforce and WildCats could be popular... not really sure if anyone cares about Young Blood and Wetworks though. As a personal favorite, I think STORM WATCH deserves to be in Clix form with a proper new TA (not a TA feat card... that's cheating).
