HeroClix Online Leading licensed collectibles maker and game creator, National Entertainment Collectibles Association (NECA)/WizKids, today announced development on the first two DC Comics sets for HeroClix Online, a digital transliteration of the popular tabletop game. The two new DC Comics sets, Blackest Night and Superman Fast Forces, will add over a dozen new figures to the game along with an accompanying map and are set to be released this Wednesday, December 7.

"We're thrilled to announce the addition of DC Comics to HeroClix Online players," said V.P. of Marketing at NECA, Justin Ziran.

On December 7, Superman Fast Forces HeroClix will be the first physical product to hit the streets that will contain codes for the virtual Superman Fast Forces figures. Superman Fast Forces adds six new figures, including Superman, Supergirl, Steel, Lex Luthor, Kryptonian, Renegade and Bizarro to the game. A new virtual map, The Farm, will follow the set.

Additionally, the famed Blackest Night collection will add seven figures to the online experience, including characters Green Lantern, Mera, Lex Luthor, Scarecrow, The Flash, The Atom and Wonder Woman, and will also be available as a starter set option for new players entering the game. The collection will bring a sixth map to the game, Sciencells.

Figures from both sets can be used alongside one another in friendly matches and in constructed tournaments in game.
