#3 Avengers (Iron Spider-man)
During the Comic event Civil War, Spidey got himself a spiffy new suit courtesy of his Avengers teammate Iron Man. The first Spider-man in Heroclix to feature a special power and man is it awesome!  His webbing special power allows him to give his targets not one, but two incapacitate tokens with a single hit. At the time he débuted, there were no indomitable characters so this power was a real threat to most targets.

HeroClix Spider-Man Dial Avengers Iron Spider

Feats were still in play so Stunning Blow became a staple for use with this version of Spidey.  Camouflage is another great choice (this allows Spidey to move in close all stealthy thanks to his new suit).  The Lunge feat gave him the ability to gain some move and attack capability. His opening clix has a lot going for it. Invulnerability combined with Outwit makes pushing to gain the Webbing power a tough choice. He also has great combat values and powers though his dial. The Iron Spider character featured some great keywords; Avengers, Armor, Reporter and Scientist.  This made him a great pick for those teams.

Overall, the Iron spider is a great pick and a lot of fun to play. The only thing that keeps him from being higher on this list is his cost of 111 points. Don’t get me wrong, he is well worth that cost but there are some cheaper options that are every bit as good to for less points.

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.
