HEROCLIX      Sat, May 25 (noon @ BC Pizza) – “Avengers Black Panther Pre-Release”
The Illuminati originated as the world’s most powerful think-tank, operating in secret and
representing the interests of all superhuman communities. They have collaborated and dealt with
many threats to the world, including alien wars, cosmic forces, and some of the most powerful
weapons in the universe. Eventually the Illuminati found themselves in possession of the Infinity
Gems and split them up among themselves for safekeeping.
   This 5-figure booster release features many fan-favorite sub-themes like The Avengers,
Wakanda, The Cabal, Elders of the Universe, The Illuminati, as well as brand-new equipment-
objects like the Cosmic Cube, Infinity Gems, and the Infinity Gauntlet!
   Existing and new HeroClix fans will look forward to new figures and objects to power-up their
collection in addition to never-before-Clixed characters like Astronomer, Challenger, Eitri, Enigma,
Everett K. Ross, Kobik, Okoye, Rune, and more!

explained in the Week 2 description.  All players who attend week 3 will be eligible to win the
special prize. It will be awarded to the player that wins that event. However, while any player is
eligible to win the prize, players that attend more events will have a larger card pool for constructing
their League Decks. This means that the only way to receive League boosters is to attend League
events.

Cost for returning League Players will be $10, for new League Players it will be $20.
