Are you looking for HeroClix Zombie Stats?

I wanted to make my own HeroClix Zombie cards since I was only lucky enough to score one Marvel Zombie so far but WizKids does not have the stats and card images online. After doing some digging I finally found a link to the card images and the figure stats so you can make your own custom Marvel Zombies.

Hot Comics Coming This Wednesday From Marvel

New Universal #1
The Story: Planet Earth. Inhabited by six billion people. People leading ordinary lives, coping with everyday struggles. But on a night like any other, the Earth is rocked by the most startling celestial event ever witnessed by the human race. The White Event. And from its wake, a handful of humans emerge as something more.
Acclaimed writer Warren Ellis (NEXTWAVE) and superstar artist Salvador Larroca (X-MEN) bring you this new universe - a universe witnessing superhuman power for the first time.

Spider-man: Reign #1
A searing vision of Spider-Man's future, brought to you by superstar Kaare Andrews (INCREDIBLE HULK).
They finally did it. Kicked them to the curb. The "capes and tights" crowd -- there's no place for them in the Big Apple anymore. Peter Parker? He can't even remember what it was like to don the red and blue and swing through the night sky. Doesn't want to, anyway. After all, there's nothing left to fight for, is there? That is until an old "friend" appears on Peter's doorstep, bearing a package and a message -- and everything changes. If it's not Peter's responsibility, then whose is it?

Ultimate Vision #1
Picking up directly from the events in the smash hit limited series Ultimate Extinction! The Earth was saved from the Ultimate threat-Gah Lak Tus. But scientist George Tarleton has captured a piece of that awesome entity and plans to reactivate it for his own evil purposes. The only hope for mankind against this mad scheme-the strange alien being called The Vision!

    The Great Cthulhu



    Here are the rules for using the Great Cthulhu in our HeroClix game next Saturday.

    HeroClix Results from November 18

    We had 2 HeroClix tournaments today including the SUPERNOVA Marquee. I was a little disappointed with the turnout. But Rob was the big winner of both events. We saw lots of uniques pulled from boosters but unfortunately no ZOMBIES.

    Next Saturday we have a HeroClix vs the Great Cuthulu and his undead army event as well as a Sentinel event to kick off the release of 'Days of Future's Past' expansion. Check back here later this weekend for the complete rules associated with these games.

    MARVEL HEROCLIX: SUPERNOVA EXPANSION SELLS OUT



    THE FOLLOWING PRESS RELEASE WAS ISSUED BY WIZKIDS GAMES TODAY. WE WILL BE RECEIVING OUR SUPERNOVA BOOSTERS ON NOVEMBER 15. GET THEM FAST WE DON'T THINK THEY WILL LAST LONG:

    November 10, 2006 (SEATTLE) - WizKids Inc. announced today that the entire U.S. print run of Marvel HeroClix: Supernova has sold out from its warehouse. The ninth Marvel HeroClix expansion releases worldwide November 15, 2006, and has been eagerly anticipated by fans and retailers alike.

    "The buzz on Supernova building up to, and then as a result of, the Prerelease on October 28 has been spectacular" said Joe Hauck, EVP of Sales, Marketing and Product Development at WizKids. "This news is particularly exciting because it represents an increase in sales from our previous Marvel expansion, Sinister. Our authorized hobby game distributors are getting full shipments of their original orders, which should satisfy consumer demand at retail."

    A contributing factor to the product sell-out was the success of the Prerelease tournaments. At the Supernova Prerelease, fans were surprised by the surprise appearance of four Marvel Zombies figures - HeroClix pieces based on a popular Marvel comics miniseries. The four figures are packaged in roughly one out of every 100 Boosters, and include monster cards to make them compatible for play in WizKids' new HorrorClix collectable miniatures game (CMG).

    Supernova also contains new versions of previously produced and popular figures such as the Silver Surfer (sculpted in a classic Jack Kirby-style pose), Thanos and Thor, god of thunder. High point values and figures representing characters from the current Civil War and Annihilation storylines in Marvel comics make Supernova a good fit for both game and comic book stores. For more information on HeroClix, visit www.heroclix.com.

    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. The company has sold hundreds of millions of game pieces worldwide.
