During HeroClix's year-long dirtnap, many of the coveted chase pieces because affordable for the first time as panicky (or fatigued) collectors sold off their collections. So now that some more of you have these ultra-rare figures, what say you to a series of Clix of the Day reviews?

 

We'll start with the game's first true chase pieces, the Marvel zombies from the Supernova set of late 2006!

 

 

SPIDER-MAN

boot symbol

40 points

Team:  none

Keywords: Monster

Range:  0

 

DIAL & CARD:

http://www.continuumedia.com/clix_cave/tb2/Unit.cfm?UnitID=sp220&UnitVersion=1&KeyDisplay=1

 

STRENGTHS:

Leap/Climb gives him lots of mobility, and Super Senses makes him a hard target. Steal Energy on click #2 and the whole back half of his dial make him a dangerous tie-up piece...especially with Plasticity, 10 attack value and Willpower.

 

WEAKNESSES:

On the other hand, low defense with Willpower on that back half means he's an easy hit, and his low speed means even Plasticity may not allow him to run to safety. And Energy Explosion, with 0 range? Wha? You *could* Perplex his range up to use it, but...why?

 

CARDS TO CONSIDER:

LUNGE is OK for his early clicks. 

 

IN SUM:

Good (and priced right) as a tie-up piece, but the Mutations & Monsters Spider-Man is only 1 point more costly and more than 1 point worthier. Better to sell this zombie than play him. 2.5 of 5.

 

Be here next time for Colonel America.
