Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Today we preview a former crime lord and lieutenant from Daredevil’s reign over Shadowland, the Black Tarantula!
Black Tarantula begins play utilizing his 6 range as he uses Running Shot to get into position. On his second click, Black Tarantula picks up Support which will show up on all of his even numbered clicks throughout his dial. Initially, Black Tarantula is protected from damage by Invulnerability, and then later by Toughness.
Mid-dial, Black Tarantula shows off his training from the Hand as he uses Charge to maneuver into close combat and Blades/Claws/Fangs to try to inflict as much damage as possible! Around this point in his dial, Black Tarantula also switches defensively to Super Senses as he tries to avoid attacks altogether!
Late-dial, Black Tarantula gains a special power on his movement slot called Many Arms of the Black Tarantula. This special power allows him to be given a double power action to make an attack withBlades/Claws/Fangs. Once this attack resolves, Black Tarantula automatically breaks away, and can move up to 2 squares to make a range combat attack! (Notice this power says nothing about who he must target.) Defensively, he trades Super Senses for Regeneration as he shows his powerful healing factor. On his last click, Black Tarantula shows a super power he will only use as a last resort as it is so physically draining; his ability to shoot energy beams from his eyes is represented by Penatrating/Phsycic Blast!
At an economical 87 points, and with an useful selection of keywords, Black Tarantula could be just the support your force needs! Thanks for reading and join us next time as we keep previewing figures from the upcoming Incredible Hulk set! Until then, keep your dials off their KO clicks!
