In 1978, legendary boxer Muhammad Ali proved that he truly was the Greatest of All Time by defeating the strongest man on Earth – Superman – in the pages of DC Comics’ historic Superman vs. Muhammad Ali issue.

Marvel HeroClix: The Superior Foes of Spider-Man Pre-Release Cancelled

Wizkids has announced that they are cancelling their Marvel HeroClix: The Superior Foes of Spider-Man pre-release event. The company was notified that the recent train derailment near Panhandle, TX on June 28 contained some of their product onboard.

Two individuals died in the accident and a third is presumed dead. Our thoughts go out to their friends and families who lost loved ones.

The product on the train included the Marvel HeroClix: The Superior Foes of Spider-Man set intended for Wizkids’ upcoming Pre-Release events. Because of this, they are unable to fulfill orders for this event and must cancel until further notice.

While a sizable amount of the product release will be in an unknown state for an unforeseeable time, their current plan is to proceed with the launch of the product as scheduled as they have sufficient quantities for all stores who have preordered to date and the majority of the product is unaffected.

This set may be hard to get in the foreseable future though.

Wizkids Teases Their Origins Game Fair Presentation With Lots of News & New D&D Dice Masters Set?

This year Origins Game Fair takes place June 15-19 in Columbus, Ohio and Wizkids will be giving a presentation showing off what we can expect to see down the road. The game company teased the presentation with a short video on Instagram that reveals a surprising amount of things.

Heroclix 15th Anniversary:

The initial slide teases special events and contests to take place to celebrate along with Special Edition releases. We also know the game is getting some new rules and finally there will be new product tie-ins (you can also see the booster box for Marvel Heroclix: Superior Foes of Spider-Man which releases July 20).

Dice Masters:

The first slide talks about foil cards, gravity feeds (what about them!?), Team Packs, and the upcoming DC Dice Masters: Green Arrow/Flash. When it comes to the new Team Packs, the first of which is Doctor Strange, the slide explains the packs cards and dice but no sidekicks, no basic action cards, and no rulebooks or dice bags. The pack includes Doctor Strange, Clea, Wong and Dormammu. The next panel shows off Doctor Strange, Clea, and Wong which you can see below, though it’s hard to make out specifics (anyone know where the art is from?). Finally, there’s the announcement of a new Rainbow Draft Weekend featuring Marvel Dice Masters and DC Dice Masters as well as Dungeons & Dragons Dice Masters: Strahd Rainbow Draft weekend in the Fall 2016. Is it a new set? Is it soemthign specific for the weekend? We’ll find out!
