The Villians Are Loose!

Well, it’s official – the latest Heroclix expansion set, Arkham Asylum is now available in stores.  Since I pre-order mine from an online store (Dark Tower Comics in Chicago!) I won’t get my figs until sometime next week, but in the meantime, I’ve conducted the occasional inter-web search for additional preview pics of the characters.  (If only WizKids would update their figure list a little more quickly!)

So what characters is everyone looking forward to the most?  Personally, I’m looking forward to the new Silver Age Flash and the new Wonder Woman.  Oh, and the new Hitman looks pretty good too.  Superman Prime looks to be a good addition to any team as well.

My next question is, what characters should have been included in this set, but weren’t?  Beaucifer suggested that a new Catwoman would have been nice and I agree with him.

The new map also looks awesome, but unfortunately, the availablity of the official Heroclix maps has significantly decreased over the past 3 or 4 sets.  It was nice when we could just pull a new map out of a case box, but now they’ve only become available at venues and tournaments (oh, and eBay).

Anyway, I look forward to our next clix game in which we can incorporate the latest and greatest figs.

Bring on the bad guys!

  1. For Bats Rogue’s Gallery I think in addition to Catwoman, Bane would’ve been a good redo.
    As for other figs, a new Brainiac from the recent Superman books would’ve been welcome as well as General Zod and the rest of the Phantom Zone criminals would be sweet. I still think we need more Amazons and Thanagarians for generics. Why haven’t they made a Kanjor Ro yet? And where are the L.E.G.I.O.N. figs? There has been a huge influx of the classic Space Adventurers in DC lately, where are they? Captain Comet, Starman(any) and Adam Strange have been huge in the past three years.

  2. I knew you’d have some more good recommendations. Another Bane and Brainiac would be sweet.

  3. I think Brainiac needs to look like James Marsters to really be cool.

  4. Maybe for a Heroclix: Smallville boxed set.
