Add an Adamantium edge to your X-Force team with the top-secret kit of this week’s featured Brawler. And if indestructible metal isn’t enough for your roster aspirations, we’ve also got a fatherly Blitz, a symbiote sighting, and a Bonus Event to bolster your S.H.I.E.L.D. team. Sharpen your claws and get ready to cut into the meat of this blog...
Put the finishing touches on your X-Force team with X-23, the team’s feral finisher. Cloned from a damaged sample of Wolverine’s DNA, X-23 was trained from birth to be a ruthless assassin. She possesses nearly all of Wolverine’s mutant abilities, including superhuman strength, heightened senses, healing factor, and Adamantium claws within her arms and feet.
For the X-Force team, X-23 is a ruthless Brawler with a knack for finishing off injured enemies. She gouges for Piercing damage on every attack, and Heals each turn. When an enemy drops below 50% Health, X-23 smells blood in the air and gains Speed Bar to prep her next attack. She also enjoys a synergy with Deadpool, which allows his Special ability (Bounty Hunter) to ignore Stealth.
