Avengers Assemble!

Painted up a batch of fresh heroclix, this time a bunch of the mighty Avengers to file out that team. Okay granted, if your a Marvel reader, it seems that each and every hero at one time has been either a) an X-man or b) an Avenger, but heck, if it suits the story it suits me.

So left to right we have:

Wasp - Janet van Dyne: Wasp wings grow out of her back when she shrinks to less than 4' tall. Having undergone the same treatment as Hank Pym, she is able to shrink to a smaller size and has small hand blaster devices she calls her `Wasp Sting`s`

Quasar - Wendell Vaughn: Being of pure quantum energy; Formerly wielded the Quantum Bands in his role as Protector of the Universe. His worthiness was determined by the cosmic entity known as Eon. After Eon's death, Epoch now serves as Quasar's mentor.

She-Hulk - Jennifer Walters: Jennifer was shot by mobsters while being visited by her cousin, Bruce Banner, AKA the Incredible Hulk . A blood transfusion from Banner was necessary to save her life, a side effect of the gamma-irradiated blood was that she mutated into She-Hulk.

Iron Man - Anthony Stark: Tony Stark was born to parents Howard and Maria Stark. During the Vietnam War (recently changed to the Persian Gulf War), Stark was captured by Communists and, with a piece of shrapnel in his heart, was about to die. Constructing a suit of iron armor that would also help with his recovery, Stark broke out of captivity and journeyed back home to the United States. Since then, there have been many newer versions of the suit, being around version 27 in the comics, before Odin assisted in creating a magically infused version in the recent `Fear Itself` series.

The Vision: The metal monstrosity called Ultron created the synthetic humanoid known as the Vision from the remains of the original, android Human Torch of the 1940s (actually a divergent Human Torch created by Immortus for his own machinations) to serve as a vehicle of vengeance against the Avengers, Earth's Mightiest Heroes. The Vision possesses a number of superhuman powers ultimately derived from his artificial substance and metabolism. The Vision's android body is functioning replica of a human body containing analogues to virtually all human organs, blood, and tissue, composed of an unrevealed synthetic organic-like substance. This substance mimics all the functions of human tissue, but is several times as strong, durable and resilient.
