HeroClix History & Set List
This chess-like miniatures game based on comic book characters is very popular, both with comic fans and relative newcomers to the comic book genre like myself. Set up great face-offs straight from the comics, or build a team of the most unlikely teammates ever!
HeroClix has existed since 2002, and is currently owned by Neca, though the game website still bears the name of its previous owner, Wizkids Games. The game updates 2-3 times a year with completely new sets and new figures, alternating between sets featuring Marvel characters (like Spider-Man, Captain America, and Hulk) and sets featuring DC characters (like Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman). Also, a full set has been released featuring characters from independent comic books, known collectively as Indy figures--these include characters from the Danger Girl comics. Lastly, there have been several boxed sets that feature groups of characters--examples include the X-Men Danger Room box set and the Hellboy box set.
