MV27-UCX-056-Pixie

 

Here’s the basics on Pixie 056:

A 75-point piece, Pixie features both the ­–Mystics and X-Men team abilities. She also features a trait called Pixie Dust, which allows her to use Smoke Cloud as a free action, however, she’s only allowed to place 1 Hindering Terrain Marker. Characters occupying that Hindering Marker modify their defense values by -1, in addition to attack values. Pixie also brings two special powers – the first appears on her first and last click, called TeleportSpell. This ability allows Pixie to use Phasing/Teleport. When she does, she can carry up to 2 characters with the Wing movement symbol; instead, she may carry 4 characters if they all have the X-Men keyword. On the middle three clicks of her dial, on attack, lies the special power Soul Dagger. This power states that Pixie can use Blades/Claws/Fangs and Precision Strike.

 

MV27-UCX-037-X-23

Here’s the basics on X-23 037:

X-23, who – as a clone of Wolverine – specializes in close combat. Laura starts with a trait called Healing Factor, which states that when X-23 clears her action tokens, you may heal her of 1 click of damage. Now, X-23 is Indomitable – so you’re left in a bit of a catch-22 here – do you push her to get an extra attack, or clear her to give her more health? She also brings two special attacks to the fight – first, on her 1st and 4th clicks of movement, is Furious Charge, which states that X-23 can use Charge and Flurry. Her second special power is on her first 3 clicks of attack, and is called Adamantium Claws. This power states that X-23 can use Blades/Claws/Fangs, and when she does, if the result is a 1-2, you may reroll that result once per turn.

 

MV27-UCX-023b-Kitty-Pryde

Here’s the basics on Kitty Pryde 023b:

This version of Kitty is from her time with the Guardians of the Galaxy, but she was still a loyal member of the X-Men! Across her entire 6-click dial, Kitty features a special movement power called Phasing Attack, which states that Kitty Pryde can use both Phasing/Teleport and Stealth. Additionally, when she uses Phasing/Teleport, after actions resolve, she may make a close attack targeting all characters whose square she moved through – and, hit characters are given an action token instead of normal damage! Kitty Pryde also has a STOP click on her defense called Injured but Still Here, which states that in addition to the dial stopping, Kitty Pryde can also use Willpower. 

MV27-UCX-003-Storm-1

 

Here’s the basics on Storm 003:

Storm—this common version of the weather goddess brings a lot to the table for a mere 50 points. First is her trait, All-New, All-Different X-Men, which is a unique modifier that states that when Storm is healed by the X-Men team ability, you will also modify her combat values by +1 until your next turn. She also has a special power on her first two clicks of life called Localized Weather, which allows Stormto use Smoke Cloud as a free action – this combos incredibly well with her Flight ability, as well as her own natural Stealth.
