Pojo's HeroClix "Click of the Day"
Yikes! Doombot is so good it's scary. A click of leadership, two of
toughness and three of energy explosion? Oh, right, the Doom team ability. I

Doombots apart. In fact, I think it'd be interesting to have a way of
keeping the fact that it's a Doombot hidden. The only difference between the
two is that Dr. Doom has an open hand, and the Doombots have a clenched
