Top 5 Spiderman HeroClixWelcome back to another top 5 article. Today I’m taking a look at the top 5 versions of Spider-man in the game of Heroclix. He’s Marvel's Flagship character and Spidey has had a character in almost every Marvel set.

Now, be advised I’m only looking at versions that fit into a standard 300 point game format; that being said, there are a lot of versions of Spider-man to choose from. So I set criteria for myself based on a combination of how well the characters played for the time they were created, and how they would do in the modern age. So let’s take a look at the top 5:

#5 E Universe & V Ultimate
HeroClix Spider-Man HeroClix DialThe #5 spot on the list is actually a tie between these two, as they have similar attributes. Both have a low point cost, the Spider-man team ability, a 4 range and similar powers through their dials. What really made them such great choices in the past was the use of feats. In particular, the Pounce feat took these guys from the second string to first choice picks. Both have the ability to pounce on an opponent with super strength for major damage, while on their second clix, leap, climb, and super senses provide a chance to get out of harms way without taking additional damage.

Continued Below...
HeroClix Spider-Man Ultimates Vet Dial

For a time, either of these two could be a real terror on the battle field. If you really wanted to be a pain in the dupa, you could also make use of Nanobots to heal up damage and Pounce again. Then a change to the rules occurred that made Pounce and Super Strength no longer a viable option. They seemed to disappear from the battle filed in favor of some newer/better choices for playing old web head. Some time had passed and the rules were changed yet again, and these two found themselves restored to their former glory for Golden age games. If they were viable options in modern age games, I doubt they would see much play. Their lack of keywords and old school dials make them a little obsolete for the modern age. They had their day in the sun and can still be devastating in a golden age game; that’s why they are #5 on the list.

Call me noob, but why Traits are immune to outwit? I mean, isn't trait an ability?

I would have put the starter set spidey higher up on the list. I have gotten more proverbial bang for the buck out of this figure than any other spider-man. I prefer it over the Ultimates vet in which it's tied with for a low cost Spidey. Whenever I had to quickly fill out a team on the fly, this figure always wound up in the line-up.

I think cosmic spidey should have some credit, ya he might be huge in cost but and cheesy to use but on a 400 point team and run the atom from the green lantern starter cosmic is near unstoppable

this article i agree with heavily, the first three are just nasty (looking, never fought against), but the last two are just REDICULOUS

@ Nitecrawler24 ah good catch I meant to point out that WOS spidey is the first of the modern age figures to get the 18 upfront. I love it whe n guys like you keep me honest!

Posted by: Slade Wilson on 5/26/2011 10:29:29 AM
actually, the vet spidey from infinity challenge has a starting 18 defense value. they didn't give him super senses, but back in the day an 18 didn't need any extra protection. and at 110, he was only good for his starting 12 attack value. in today's game, he is unplayable.

The great thing about Universe Spiderman (and all the Universe starter figures) was the low point cost. Why round out your team with a few useless SHIELD Agents, when you could have Spidey, with super strength, instead? Missing from this list is my personal favorite, veteran Spiderman from Critical Mass.

Yeah, got WoS Spiderman in a draft the other day... MVP for sure !

Of all the regular Spiderman we have gotten over the years, I must agree with you about the WOS Red/Blue 78 point version as the best one. He does just enough damage that he can slowly take down a Hulk/Juggernaut type figure in the game just like in the comics. Also his damage trait really helps him out a lot in staying alive. He is pretty close to total comic book accuracy that if he had charge along with his leap climb on movement I think he would be perfect then. I like using him best when I run an Avengers theme team. The only part of him I dont care for is his sculpt. I think the original promo/IC sculpt is the best Spiderman sculpt to date.
