Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Back in December, we showed you a Spider-Man dressed in some fancy new duds. For today’s Marvel HeroClix: Amazing Spider-Man preview we bring you the Wall-Crawler in his traditional red and blue costume. Once again, please welcome the spectacular Spider-Man!
Our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man comes in at 125 points and has an Improved Movement combat ability called Wall-Crawling Wonder which lets him ignore elevated terrain while moving. Spider-Man also has a pair of traits, the first of which was been previously mentioned on the three versions of #001 Spider-Man — Morph: Spider Armor! With Morph: Spider Armor, give Spider-Man a move action or close combat action. After actions resolve, you may replace him with any other character with this trait, the Morph: Identity Crisis trait, or the Morph: Changing Frequencies trait on the same click number.
The second trait is called Spider-Tracers and allows Spider-Man to use Incapacitate as if he had a range value of 6. When he does and hits, mark the hit character. Lines of fire drawn to marked characters by friendly characters are blocked only by walls and indoor blocking terrain as long as Spider-Man is on the map.
Defensively, Spider-Man has Super Senses on each of his clicks. In his speed slot, he starts with three clicks of a special power in his movement slot called The Agility of a Spider. This special power lets him use Hypersonic Speed, but he modifies his speed value by -3 when he does. Once we reach the midpoint of Spider-Man’s dial, he drops The Agility of a Spider in favor of three clicks of Leap/Climb as he does what a spider can! The Agility of a Spider returns on Spider-Man’s last click.
In his attack slot, Spider-Man starts with four clicks of Super Strength as the radioactive spider blood in his veins gives him the proportionate strength of a spider and allows him to pick up objects! Super Strength is followed by two clicks of Telekinesis as Spider-Man webs up an object (or a character) and flings it at an opponent – or yank a friendly character back to safety.
Once Spider-Man is off his top click, he gains Perplex as his ingenuity and intellect help him overcome adversity. Perplex reappears on Spider-Man’s last click and sandwiched between are three clicks of Close Combat Expert, as J. Jonah Jameson’s favorite menace makes an impact before webbing up his foes!
Spider-Man has the Spider-Man Ally team ability, which allows him to copy the team abilities of other friendly characters. He also has the Reporter, Scientist, and Spider-Man Family keywords to help with theme team building. The Spider-Tracers trait should come in handy to help Spider-Man’s teammates draw lines of fire, while his consistent combat values should make him a formidable foe!
Thanks for reading! Please join us again for our next Marvel HeroClix: Amazing Spider-Man preview. Until then, keep your Clix off their K.O.’s!
