Danny The Street Banned From WizKids National Championship

Back in February, Heroclix players got a huge surprise with the release of the World’s Finest set– one of the maps for it was Danny the Street from Grant Morrison‘s Doom Patrol run (there were quite a few DP figures in World’s Finest). This was the first time  Wizkids put out a character as a map, despite many requests over the years that they do Mogo or Ego that way.

At the tournament I attended for Wizkids Open Weekend (a big promotional event offering otherwise convention exclusive items and sets of chases run at select stores) a few weeks ago, Danny was a very popular map choice.

So it was something of a shock when Wizkids banned the map from the National Championship tournament being held in a couple of weeks.

Is Danny banned because he’s so popular with competitive players, or does WK not want a transvestite street having a huge impact?

As usual, WK. Is being silent and non-communicative.
