So it seems pretty inevitable there will be a John Constantine clix sometime.  

What should his powers be?  

Click to remove one female of the opposite team and John for the rest of the game.

The dreaded BFF attack: John calls one model his Best Friend Forever.  The next time they are hit with an attack from any other model, they die and their soul goes down to Hell.

Does it count as betrayal to give someone a kicking he's been begging for?

Milligan says, "John can smack one female member of the other team".
Maybe he can create a fireball? Doesn't he have that power in the DCU now?

I'm really just writing to say that you can finally have that John Constantine vs. Wendigo fight we've all dreamt about.

I just want John and Zatanna to play house.

That's for real and not a joke?
How the hell do players even use that piece? I don't play Heroclix, but it seems like a pretty pointless figure.
I throw down my John Constantine piece, which means you have to Ride the Synchronicity Highway around the board, but you can't pass GO and collect your $200, and also you will be perplexed by exactly what this John Constantine piece can actually do to in any way be meaningful to the play of this game.

I think it means the phone rings or the other player suddenly remembers some previous engagement and has to leave, forfeiting the game.

Ha!

It also says he's a "wild card", which means he can be helpful in poker as well.
I throw down my John Constantine, and I want it to be an ace!

His figurine seems to be floating on a meteor. I didn't notice that before. That's interesting.

I can't decide if that's supposed to be a cloud or an insifficiently polished turd.

Swearing: John Constantine can outswear all members of the Justice League. Although they may beat him in a fight, he will walk away with a superior swagger (+3).

We really missed out on this! They actually made a Nick Necro heroclix! The local comic shop was selling one for $40!
Unbelievable.

His other powers include the ability to start a jukebox just by punching it, and the ability to jump his motorcycle over a large number of garbage cans.
It's quite the powerful heroclix.

I hope it's a bigger audience than that, as I don't think Christian or myself are very interested, so that's two fifths of that audience gone straight off...

Argh... oh fuck.

OK here's the card and figure for the revised John. Notice anything... similar? Yep, it's the same figure repainted, with a different color magic zap. AND NICK COSTS MORE POINTS!
