Pojo's HeroClix "Click of the Day"
||Today we are looking at the new Peter Parker from Mutant
Starting off, his opening dial looks the same as the experienced Spidey from
the same set. He costs 20 points less than that Spidey and he loses the
Fantastic 4 TA. (Here's hoping for a new FF based set before July 4th) He
has a good defense of 17 and Super Senses. He also has Leap/Climb with a 9
and a 10 attack with Incappacitate. He starts out worse IMO than the
Ultimates Peter Parker, whom has Perplex and the Spidey TA and Willpower for
less. The best thing to do with this Spidey is team him up with the Pounce
feat. He can do 3 damage then all the way down to his last 2 clicks. Then
you can Flurry, Willpower, and Outwit them to death with his spiking attack.
Just imagine him leaping all over the board crashing down on Medics and the
like. He can just decimate your opponents support in just a few turns and
then flurry to death whatever is left.
||Today, we have the LE version of Spider-Man, Peter
Parker. Those of you who don't know who Spidey is really shouldn't be
playing this game. This version clocks in at 77 points, and has no team
affiliation, and has the 4 range, 2 target that we've usually had. On with
Movement~ Starts of with a 9 move and Leap/Climb, which he keeps for 6
clicks. After that, it's Flurry of Blows for 2 clicks, and by now his
movement has dropped to 6. Then it's all over for our favorite wall-crawler.
Not too bad, I suppose. Same as all the other incarnations of Spidey we've
seen over the years....
Attack~ Starting at 10, we get 2 clicks of incapacitate, then 2 of super
strength, then 2 more of incapacitate, then nothing for the final 2. Again,
Defense~ A nice 17 with super senses for 3 clicks, then 3 clicks of combat
reflexes, finishing off with 2 will power.
Damage~ Vanilla 2's until the last 2 clicks, where we get some outwit.
Sculpt~ Very nice. Better detailed than Spideys of yesterday, and Wizkids
has finally stiffened the little clear stand so the figure doesn't bend when
you turn the dial.
Final Thoughts~ I realize Spiderman is Marvels Flagship character. I realize
he's the most popular as well. But having essentially the same click with a
different sculpt in every set is getting to be too much. Some of the unique
spideys have had a little something different to them, but they haven't done
the truly outrageous yet. Where is my Cosmic-Powered Spidey, Spider-Armor
version, Scarlet Spider, Cyborg Spidey, Phoenix-Spidey, and countless
others? At least then we'd get something different in the dial. But the
piece itself is useful, can be used in tourneys, and would be nice in a
sealed booster tournament
Overall Score~ 3/5 in any use
|One word sums up this heroclick pretty well, that word is
no. I can think of a lot of other better things you can spend 77 points on,
like 7 hellfire guards, or 2 hellfire guards. I mean really what do you get?
If he had perplex like some of the other versions then maybe, but no. I mean
theres nothing even worth using here. The 10 attack is decent but for only
two damage? Incapacitate is nice but vertigo has three targets, and she's
cheaper. He has a high defense (17) with super sense so he isnt going to die
any time soon. Then again if he had 5 defense and no power he wouldn't die
because your opponent wont bother going after him. Im really disappointed,
Im actually a fan of spiderman and he really deserves better. the peter
parker from ultimates was half decent but this...... Seriously if you pull
one cut him to pieces and glue him into Dr Octopuses arms like I did.
100: 1/5 THis rating would be a lot more significant If i had been a
reviewer longer. You would have noticed that i always make my ratings
300: 1.0002/5 Get the picture yet?
500: 1.0005/5 Your opponent could die laughing so its a little better here.
So said the spy
||Okay, Peter Parker
Wimpy Geek turned superhero!
Funny story actually:
I won the Marquee for MM and I picked Logan
then, I bought a pack and got Peter Parker Super Rare....hey!!!
Great pieces all around, Logan was rarer and an X-Man, so I picked him
Great for a Spider-Man
I say that because Batman from HT can deal more clicks of damage than any
Spider-Man piece ever has....that is, until cosmic spiderman, muahahahah!
But seriously, he's like 77 points, a good piece with super senses, leap
climb with good movement, incapacitate with very good attack, good defense
with super senses
My problem is his damage!
Spidey can lift over 10 tons!
Batman can't lift up a car!
Now, how come bats can do more damage?
My problem is damage, but everything else, solid gold (especially the SR
Limited 10/10- would you pass him up anyway? besides, hes a good, rare piece
Constructed 7/10- I would put in a con artist or a medic and a deathstroke
vet in his place, but he is still really good!
Until next time, we'll be reviewing the other Marquee LE!!!
|Today's Click O' Da Day is........
Peter Parker - LE 5
Range: (1) 4 inches
This is the LE version of Ultimate Spider-Man, and is 13 more points than
the Veteran version. It has less health and overall its stats drop
considerably, including dropping from 2 to 1 damage after the first click.
Super Strength and Incapacitate are switched around on this version, with
the latter coming first. Willpower and Super Senses are still here, but
again, with lower defense values. The only thing you really gain is three
clicks of perplex. Although perplex is good, not for 71 points. There are
much better versions of spidey out there, the exp critical mass version is
the same cost but a lot more bang for the buck. This piece is good for
collecting purposes, but not much else. Still, as a spidey fan, I can't
complain. This is an "ok" piece in my book. ;-)
Playability: 3/5 - You're better off using the Vet ultimates version with a
Collectibiliy: 4/5 - Hey, it may not be worth as much as other level 5's,
but its spider-man! :-)
