For years, WizKids‘ Heroclix have been giving fans and table-top gamers the chance to rewrite history’s greatest comic book battles. After decades of wondering who would really win in a fight between Hulk and the Thing, Batman and Bane or even Superman and Thor, Heroclix provided a “definitive” way for fans to settle all bets.Originally billed as one of the greatest fights in the history of the universe, Superman versus Muhammad Ali didn’t quite live up to the slugfest we’d all envisioned. That’s what happens when two generally solid gentlemen work together to stop an alien invasion.
Now, Heroclix will finally allow us to learn which of the heavyweights would truly come out on top in a boxing match unrivaled in hype with an exclusive set coming out this summer.
Unlike a number of exclusive figures offered at conventions around the world every year, this collection offers just a bit more than some new sculpts and abilities to mix in with your traditional Heroclix collections. Yes, there will be a Muhammad Ali figure complete with his own stats and abilities worthy enough of going toe-to-toe with the Last Son of Krypton. Superman will also get the typical breakdown, though WizKids is rather mum on what either of these characters can and will be able to do in a given match. You’d think Superman might have his abilities dialed down a bit, or that Ali will have some of the most impressive human attributes ever given to a Heroclix figure.
Additionally, the two will come boxed up with a 5×5 grid boxing ring arena. That kind of custom battle zone must mean a special set of rules is coming with the figures as well, that way you can mix it up with more than just Ali and Superman to see who might reign supreme in a massive comic book boxing federation. You also might be able to set up your own version of Unlimited Class Wrestling, and give that D-Man Heroclix figure collecting dust the recognition he deserves.
The DC Comics Heroclix: Superman vs Muhammad Ali set will be available exclusively at the 2017 WizKids US National Championship in June.
