Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man has a long, strange history with the Fantastic Four: He first met the team after failing to break into the Baxter Building to lobby for a spot on the team. Later, Spider-Man joined the “new” Fantastic Four alongside Ghost Rider, Hulk, and Wolverine.
Spider-Man begins play with the Surprise! I’m Under You! special power. This power allows Spider-Man to use Leap/Climb. In addition, Spidey’s attack and damage values increase by +1 when he uses a close combat action against a character on a higher elevation. Mid-dial, Spider-Man showcases his agility by switching to standard Leap/Climb. At the end of his dial, Spidey possesses the Charge power.
Attackwise, Spider-Man has a range of 4 with two targets. Spider-Man possesses the proportionate of his namesake which is represented by Super Strength on his first and last clicks. Mid-dial, his web-shooters come into play when he switches to Incapacitate.
Defensively, Spider-Man can evade damage with Super Senses for most of his dial. On his last two clicks, ol’ web-head gets a defensive bump when he switches to Combat Reflexes.
With great power comes Spider-Man’s great ability to really annoy his foes (and sometimes his allies)! Starting with his second click, Spider-Man gains the appropriately named Distracting Banter special power in his damage slot. If an opposing character attacks Spider-Man and misses or Spidey evades the attack, the opposing character’s defense is lowered by -1 until that character’s next turn.
At 90 points and with the Fantastic Four and Reporter keywords, Spider-Man can easily fit onto a variety of teams. Appropriately, Spider-Man also demonstrates his versatility by possessing both the Fantastic Four and Spider-Man team abilities!
That’s all for today, true believers! Be sure to join us in the coming weeks as we highlight more members of the all-new Fantastic Four and uncover more mysteries in Marvel HeroClix: Hulk! Until then, keep your clix off their KOs!
