Tomorrow soon turns into yesterday......and things they are a'changin' around Castle Anthrax. But those announcements are premature; we'll be rollin' them out some time next week, Grok willin' and the creek don't rise. (Lest friends worry and nosy assholes prematurely rejoice, however, be advised -- the wedding is still on, everybody is well and happy, and rock n' roll is still the music of the gods. Fear not! All is well!)
Until it's announcement time, though, you'll have to content yourself with more Doc Nebula's HeroClix House Rules madness, as follows --
So I wanted to create an alternate Team Ability for all the Wild Card TAs. I mean, if you wanted to build a team of ALL Wild Cards, you certainly could, but, you know, you just wouldn't get any benefit from the TAs. That seemed to me to suck. Not as bad as the 2000 Presidential elections or anything, but, still, this one is an injustice I can redress. I'd already created alternate TAs for the Legion of Superheroes and the Minions of Doom TA, so I figured I'd go in and do one for Calculators and Spider-Man Allies, as well.
And then, as I am wont to do, I went a little nuts coming up with a few additional Team Abilities --
If your entire team is comprised of Calculators, you may use the following Alternate TA instead of the above TA:
Choose one member of your Calculator force. Give that member an action token. For the remainder of that turn, this character may use either Perplex, Outwit, or Leadership as if that power is showing on its dial. All Calculators on a force are always considered to be within range of each other for use of powers that affect each other, even powers that normally only affect adjacent teammates. All Calculators on a force always have line of sight to each other.
SPIDER-MAN ALLY –
If your entire team is composed of Spider-Man figures and/or figures with the Spider-Man TA, you may use the following Alternate Spider-Man Ally TA instead of the above TA:
When any Spider-Man figure or member of this TA is adjacent to any other friendly Spider-Man Ally or Spider-Man figure, the higher cost figure may act as a transporter towards the lower cost figure. When any Spider-Man figure or Spider-Man Ally is adjacent to any opposing Spider-Man figure or Spider-Man Ally, that Spider-Man figure or Spider-Man Ally may make a close combat attack on the opposing Spider-Man figure or Spider-Man Ally as a free action.

That's all you get for now. Wednesday is here! Wrestle it to the ground, bang its head on the asphalt until it goes limp, and then stomp on its face!
