September 26, 2007 (SEATTLE) — WizKids Inc. announces that DC HeroClix®: Crisis will be the next DC HeroClix release. Crisis, a loaded title for DC Comics fans, is a story that spans three decades and many Earths and that has completely changed the DC universe.
DC Comics’ Crisis on Infinite Earths storyline chronicles the multiverse-spanning battle between some of DC’s most remarkable heroes — including SUPERMAN, BATMAN, THE FLASH, GREEN LANTERN and WONDER WOMAN — and the evil ANTI-MONITOR, whose goal is the end of all existence. Crisis on Infinite Earths was only the beginning of the story that has continued through popular titles such as Infinite Crisis, Identity Crisis and the current Final Crisis storyline. DC HeroClix: Crisis brings the fight to players with figures from all of these DC titles.
“We had been looking for ways to make HeroClix relevant to current storylines when DC pitched the idea of a Crisis set to us,” said Mark Tuttle, HeroClix brand manager. “The Crisis story is pivotal to every DC storyline. And it’s just cool.”
DC HeroClix: Crisis will release in February 2008 and will be supported with a robust Organized Play program. A companion product releasing April 2008, the DC HeroClix Anti-Monitor Action Pack, will bring one of DC’s most fearsome villains to the HeroClix game table.
A wholly owned subsidiary of the Topps Company (TOPP), WizKids is a Seattle-based game developer and publisher dedicated to creating tabletop games driven by imagination. Its HeroClix and Pirates brands are among the most successful games on the market today, with over 100 million miniature game figures sold worldwide.
