Heroclix Olympics Day Three: Bobsled

Welcome to Day Three of the Heroclix Olympic Events. It’s our most exciting day yet with Bobsled and the first Figure Skating event!

EVENT ONE: Bobsled; 2-Man
(Required Clix Ability: Mastermind; sled total 200 points)
Representing The Avengers: Nick Fury+Patriot
Representing The Justice League of America: Commissioner Gordon+Plastic Man
Representing The Legion of Doom: The Riddler+Solomon Grundy
Representing Marvel Villains: The Red Skull+Venom
Representing The Titans: No Entrants
Representing The X-Men: No Entrants

The JLA team crashed on their first run but were able to match the leaders in their second. It was only enough for fourth, however, as the top three all pulled in a blazing 6 second run and the Unified Marvel Villain Team winning Gold with a second run at 5 seconds.

Final Result
G: Marvel Villains
S: Legion of Doom
B: Avengers
4: JLA

EVENT TWO: Bobsled; 2-Woman
(Required Clix Ability: Mastermind; sled total 200 points)
Representing The Avengers: Iron Widow+Wasp
Representing The Justice League of America: No Entrants
Representing The Legion of Doom: Queen Bee+Fury
Representing Marvel Villains: Nebula Kang+Madame Masque
Representing The Titans: No Entrants
Representing The X-Men: Lilandra+Polaris

In an interview just before the event, the Unified Marvel Villains Team said they were “disappointed” Iron Widow was representing the Avengers when she is a known Marvel Villain; no formal complaint was entered however.

The track was hard on all four teams, only the Avengers finished both runs and therefore took Gold. The X-Men were unable to finish and it was later discovered the sled weight was miscalculated and light by over 100 points.

Final Result
G: Avengers
S: Marvel Villains
B: Legion of Doom
Did Not Finish: X-Men

EVENT THREE: Bobsled, 4-Man
(Required Clix Ability: Leadership; sled total 400 points)
Representing The Avengers:Captain America +Iron Man, Iron Spider, Luke Cage
Representing The Justice League of America: Batman+Aquaman, Blue Beetle, The Atom
Representing The Legion of Doom: Joker+Penguin, Bane, Killer Croc
Representing Marvel Villains: Magneto+Sabretooth, The Blob, Pyro
Representing The Titans: Nightwing+Cyborg, Beast Boy, Speedy
Representing The X-Men: Havok +Cyclops, Wolverine, Iceman

The speeds reached by these sleds were amazing. In the first run, the Avengers, the JLA and the Titans all turned in an impressive 4 seconds. Despite added difficulty in the second run, the Avengers’ showing was only one second slower and secured them the Gold. The JLA had trouble starting their second run but finished very strong to win Silver and the Titans pulled in third. The X-Men struggled but were able to hold off the Marvel Villains for fourth. In last place, the Legion seemed surprised they were in a competition and crashed at the gate.

Final Result
G: Avengers
S: JLA
B: Titans
4: X-Men
5: Marvel Villains
6: Legion of Doom

EVENT FOUR: Bobsled; 4-Woman
(Required Clix Ability: Leadership; sled total 400 points)
Representing The Avengers: Ms. Marvel +Jessica Jones, Spider-Woman, Mockingbird
Representing The Justice League of America: Wonder Woman+Zatanna, Black Canary, Huntress
Representing The Legion of Doom: Talia+Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Cheshire
Representing Marvel Villains: Callisto+Lady Deathstrike, Viper, Calypso
Representing The Titans: No Entrant
Representing The X-Men: Emma Frost +Cuckoos

Again, the track was murder on the women and only the Avengers team pulled in two good runs. They were two great runs, however, both 5 seconds, and would have secured them Gold anyway. The Marvel Villains took Silver finishing one run also at five and the JLA and X-Men tied for Bronze with six. The Legion were unable to finish even one run.

Final Result
G: Avengers
S: Marvel Villains
B: JLA
B: X-Men
Did Not Finish: Legion of Doom
