Today, we’re taking a look at the kookiest of the four turtles, the nunchaku-spinning prankster Michelangelo! We’ll start off with a version of Michelangelo based on the original 1984 Mirage Comics series.
Michelangelo is an attacker who can bring the fight to the enemy while simultaneously helping his teammates. To show this, he starts with the Charge and Empower standard powers on his dial. The early-dial pairing of Charge and Empower means you can have Michelangelo move in for an attack, then bump up an adjacent teammate’s damage value when it’s their turn to take a swing at an opponent.
Like the 1984 comics versions of Raphael and Donatello we previously revealed, Michelangelo has the Fighting through the Swarms trait that allows him to be placed in any square adjacent to an opposing character he hits. Also like Raphael and Donatello, Michelangelo’s weapons of choice (two nunchakus) are represented as a special power. That special power, Nunchakus, lets him make two close attacks via Flurry. Additionally, each time he hits an opponent, he can give that character an action token after actions resolve.
Michelangelo can be added to your force for 50 points and is a viable choice as an attacker who can also slow down an opponent’s force by dishing out action tokens through his Nunchakus special power.
Like the other characters in TMNT HeroClix they also have a Modern version. Head on over to the Wizkids site for more!

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Gravity Feed features more than 30 characters from the 32-year history, based on both the comics and animated tv series. Today, we take a look at two versions of the toughest member of the ninja turtles, the sai-wielding Raphael! First up is #001 Raphael, which is based on the 1984 Mirage Comics series!
This version of Raphael comes in at 50 points and has all the standard speed, attack, defense and damage symbols. At only 50 points, Raphael leaves plenty of room for the rest of his brothers, and maybe even some allies, depending on your force build total. He is built for close combat and has a power set that’s appropriate for this role.
The second version is inspired by the 2012 Nickelodeon take on TMNT’s Raphael. View him at the Wizkids Website along with more information about the 1984 Raphael HeroClix

WizKids are continuing the Booster Brick previews for the upcoming Heroclix set, DC HeroClix: World’s Finest! The focus of this set is of course on the two stars of the comic series of the same title; Batman and Superman. In addition to different versions of each hero, representing them throughout their lengthy comic book histories, they would be remiss to ignore how their arch enemies have changed with them over the years.
Today, they feature a villain that was pulled in Scott Porter latest unboxing video, Poison Ivy!

WizKids is previewing one of Gotham City’s defenders and member of the Shadowpact, Ragman for the upcoming DC HeroClix: Worlds Finest set.
Ragman is a 6 click piece, and comes in at 70 points – a bargain for what he brings to the table. To start, he can be played on themed teams featuring the Gotham City, Mystical, and Shadowpact keywords – two of which have significant representation in this set, increasing the possibility of being able to reap the benefits of a themed team in a sealed event. Ragman also has the Mystics team ability, allowing him to deal 1 damage back to an attacker who dealt damage to him.
