HeroClix: The Runaways Hit the Table

3 Minute Read
Jun 18 2017

The Runaways become The Young Avengers in the ‘What if?’ set – and a new play through with Indomitable!

This group is from What If the Runaways Became The Young Avengers. All of the 6 figs in this roster share the Runaways and Young Avengers keywords, which allows them to mix well with characters outside of this set.

You can build a 300-point team with five of the six figures in this team:

  • 50 Molly Hayes
  • 50 Chase Stein
  • 50 Gertrude Yorkes & Old Lace
  • 75 Karolina Dean
  • 75 Nico Minoru

The Runaways trait allows them to reroll a 1 on an attack roll once each turn if they’re adjacent to a friendly with either the Runaways or Young Avengers keywords. Let’s see what else they can do…

Karolina is the primary attacker with a range value of 7 combined with Running Shot and Penetrating/Psychic Blast.However, she is just as helpful defensively. With Reactive Energy Barrier, she can share her starting 18-defense value with friendly adjacent characters by using Defend which modifies an attacker’s damage value by -1 when the attacker targets her or an adjacent character with a ranged attack.



With her trait Sister Grimm, Nico Minoru is the literal definition of double duty. She can take a free action to choose two standard powers from different combat types (speed, attack, defense, and/or damage) that were not chosen during the previous turn. With a range value of 6 and Willpower, Nico can be whatever you want her to be, whenever you need her to be it.


Filling the role of team leaders, secondary close combat harassment, and the source of support powers are Gertrude Yorkes & Old Lace. They are truly a two-for-one bargain at 50 points. With the trait My Parents Only Left Me One Thing, you place an Old Lace token in your starting area at the beginning of the game. When Old Lace would normally be dealt damage, you may instead deal 1 unavoidable damage to Gertrude Yorkes & Old Lace. This means Gertrude can stay back and avoid the heat of battle with Stealth and Super Senses.
