Friends and foes of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man come swinging into the new Marvel HeroClix: Superior Foes of Spider-Man set— featuring a selection of both classic and contemporary Spider-Villians as well as the return of the Serpent Society. Marvel HeroClix: Superior Foes of Spider-Man also features ClixFX bases—an easy way to track on-going game and environmental effects!

The Marvel HeroClix: Spider-Man and His Greatest Foes Fast Forces Pack is on it’s way… let’s take a look at some of what’s in it! Each pack contains 6 figures, a clixFX base, and a rule sheet.

Let’s start with the star of the show…

via Wizkids:

001-Spider-Man-2

Coming into play at 75 points, Spider-Man’s Protect the Innocent trait lets him use the Carry ability but only to carry a character with a lower point value.  As for special powers, Spider-Man can use Web Slingshot, which allows him use Hypersonic Speed.  When he does so, you may place him in a square of higher elevation within four squares and line of fire, before moving.  Web Slingshot should come in handy for those times when an opponent is trying to use map terrain to hide, essentially letting Spider-Man reposition and launch from a square of higher elevation, when he uses Hypersonic Speed.

 

002-J-Jonah-Jameson

Jonah Jameson has a point value of 25 and has a short dial that features SidestepWillpower and Outwit. What makes J. Jonah Jameson really interesting is his special power, The World Needs to Know: Your Reckless Actions, which permits him choose an opposing character within four squares and line of fire at the beginning of your turn.  The chosen character cannot be given power actions until your next turn.  The World Needs to Know: Your Reckless Actions is a great power for limiting an opponent’s options by preventing them from acquiring power actions.

 

003-Doctor-Octopus

Like Spider-ManDoctor Octopus can be added to your force by paying 75 points.  Doctor Octopus’s dial is highlighted by a special power in his speed slot that represents his mobility through the use of his iconic robotic arms.  His special power, Arm Walk, lets him use Sidestep and Improved Movement that lets him ignore elevated terrain, hindering terrain, and allows him to move through squares adjacent to opposing characters (but he’ll still need to break away normally).  The rest of Doctor Octopus’s dial is highlighted by standard powers befitting his scientific genius:  FlurryWillpowerEnergy Shield/DeflectionCombat ReflexesOutwit, and Perplex.

      Damn, beat me to it.

      It’s like they’re not even trying, isn’t it?

      • GingerPowered

        Pretty much. All the website is anymore is crap “journalism”, and ads.

        Hell, at one point last year they actually had a script running on an ad that redirected my phone to a ransomware website…

        • Red_Five_Standing_By

          That happened on a lot of sites around that time. IFL Science got hit as well.

        • Grafton Is Dust

          In their defense, companies often subscribe to an ad provider and don’t get to vet them themselves.

          BoLS’ reputation in the community seems to have degraded in lockstep with the lower-effort model they’ve gone for. A real shame that.

        • I won’t disagree with you, the ads drive me crazy too. But why are you on here if it’s just crap? I always find it funny when people come to the site, and complain about it, while giving the site views for ad revenue.

    Least dynamic Spiderman EVER!!!

    • My thought exactly. They really gave up didn’t they?

        “Spiderman, Spiderman
        Your friendly non-dynamic, Spiderman
        Stands around, looking bored
        I can’t be bothered to think of anything that rhymes with bored…”

        • Stands around, looking bored,
          It’s no lie, its one of his keywords
          Look out! Here comes the Spider-man!

            This must be the Zack Snyder version of Peter Parker. I mean, his Mum was called Mary, but that sounds an awful lot like Martha.
