So I decided to spice up dust a little an use comic and other media characters who fought or involved in WWII. I am using superhero miniatures for the models since most of them already exist in WWII uniform or military uniform with some conversions. I figure that since this is already fictional era why not show what these people would be doing during this WWII. I tried to make them as balanced as possible if you do not think they are balanced let me know.

In movie he helped during WWII
Cliff "The Rocketeer"
Move 3 Armor 2 HP 3
Pistol
Knife
Agile
Ignores terrain when moving cannot end on terrain though
Pts2

Just a couple of things I'm not sure about.  Not tried out any of this for real, but a couple of things look pretty powerful.

Wolverine has move 2 and charge, so he can theoretically double move 4 squares, then one for charge, and attack with his claws.  He might not worry a vehicle, but I wouldn't want my infantry anywhere near him.  Hellboy, with charge and fast is able to do a similar thing just one square less move.  Sabertooth can do the same as wolverine above once per game with assault and charge.

Also, there are a lot of characters with black ops on that list.  I know it doesn't stack, but I was rather hoping it wouldn't be something that would pop up in every battle, once there was a little choice of characters.  Just a thought.

You haven't given a points value for any of them, so it's a bit difficult to tell if they'll be  too powerful.

1) My idea was to put make wolverine fast bc he and sabertooth are big close combat figs. Hellboy was a typo didnt mean charge.

2) I know they dont stack but i was thinking of not all these heroes at once but more along the line of the box itself with only 2 at a time maybe i should accomidate for multiple heroes.

3) Charles and Magneto I was thinking 4 or 5. Cap, Skull, Wolverine, Sabertooth, Hellboy and Kroenen was going to be 3 or 4 and Indy and Rocketeer were gonna be 2 or 3, I was pushing more for a 2.
