Take 'Em Down is a new series of articles by Eric Schaen. Take 'Em Down focuses on just one HeroClix character, and explores ways you can beat the crap out of it.
Cosmic Spider-Man. This character can incite sighs of grief or shrieks of protest when a player reveals a team with this Space Arachnid on it. Some consider him a “broken” character to play against; others actually enjoy the challenge of seeing if they can defeat him.
Let’s explore some optionsto take down that player who insists on showing up to 400 point games with Cosmic Spidey... again and again and again. Of course there are some obvious answers; like building a team of characters that all have the Mystics team ability. Or you could use Kid Zoom with a future theme team. However this article is aimed at players who want to win with a little more style and grace.
First a quick look at Cosmic Spidey’s dial:
His Pros: Hypersonic Speed, the Power Cosmic & Spider-Man team abilities, damage reducing powers on every click, great combat values, awesome special powers, a 10 range with 2 targeting bolts and finally one very, very impressive trait. Basically he is a BEAST!
His Con’s: He’s costly at a hefty 319 points (Only 81 points left for your team in a 400 point game.) He has only a single keyword. A lack of powers that allow him to penetrate damage reducers; lastly he is only 8 clix deep (thankfully not 10).
(Obviously your opponent will most likely have some other characters for you to deal as well. But with only 81 points to work with it shouldn’t be too bad. So we are going to keep the focus on the main threat for the purpose Take Em Down.)
