HeroClix Logo Keychain Superman#2 Superman (Superman 001)

Also known as All Star Superman, this Superman packs one hell of a punch. One glance at his starting combat values and powers and it’s no mystery why this Superman is such dreaded competition. His mobility (Hypersonic Speed), speed and damage output combined with Outwit, Indomitable and the Superman team ability, truly make him a force to be reckoned with.

Ordinarily, playing a single character as your full force is risky choice at best, but this man of steel stands a better than average chance of pulling a win even when sheer numbers are against him.

Continued below...

HeroClix Superman Dial 001

Why he’s number #2

He may be a great option for a one man army, but he is still a one man army. As the game has proven time and time again, being able to out action your opponent can be a tremendous advantage. When the only character on your team is still subject to powers like Outwit, Penetrating/Psychic Blast and Pulse Wave, and Perplex, it can quickly turn to an uphill battle no matter how good the dial is.

"Superman didn't become Superman. Superman was born Superman. When Superman wakes up in the morning, he's Superman. His alter ego is Clark Kent. His outfit with the big red "S", that's the blanket he was wrapped in as a baby when the Kents found him. Those are his clothes. What Kent wears - the glasses, the business suit - that's the costume. That's the costume Superman wears to blend in with us. Clark Kent is how Superman views us. And what are the characteristics of Clark Kent. He's weak... he's unsure of himself... he's a coward. Clark Kent is Superman's critique on the whole human race." -- Bill, Kill Bill Vol 2.

@ Mantis, that is a tale for another day. ;)

Which would people prefer to use for 300pts: 1x SM001 Superman at 300pts or 2x SM001 Superman at 150pts each?

Posted by: ClixOfSteel on 6/9/2013 12:33:09 PM
To be honest i was kindof hoping to see the superman returns! xhase from the superman set i know he wasnt the best best but i was hoping at least numbefr 5 but hey i am not complaining and i actually agree with this but tabapp supes as number one? y not the 300 point supes as number one he is amazing

Posted by: Mr.Man on 6/3/2013 5:19:58 PM
Actually Eric, you hinted that with split points values counting as 2 different figures your top 5 would have been different. What would be your top 5, counting the 150 pointers as separate, out of interest?

Posted by: Mantis Warrior on 6/3/2013 9:02:05 AM
Great list thanks. I tend to prefer my supermen at a lower point value (which makes them a bit comic inaccurate) so as to include more justice league around them. SMFF at 150 is usually my go-to Supes. Nice sculpt, good values and a cute nod to the classic superman turns back time scene with some prob control.
The JLFF at 125 would have become my go-to if only he'd had some range!
Now can I justify buying an i-pad so as to use the Tab-app one? hmm...

Posted by: Mantis Warrior on 6/3/2013 8:59:53 AM
pretty much agree with this list all the way. only a shame that the Tab Ap and SoG Superman wernt switchclicks to make that mod even easier and reversable for venues that dont allow mods

Posted by: Grim on 6/1/2013 7:13:57 PM
@Sandman- on the topic of classic Superman dials, I would have Icons vet 2nd to only Man of Steel LE from Collateral Damage.

Posted by: Licensedhero on 6/1/2013 3:01:20 PM
@ seeker , yes many a discussion on those things. Remember this is a modern age only list, otherwise I would have to include some of those golden oldies for sure.

Posted by: Slade on 5/31/2013 8:07:19 AM
I really like the SM 001 Superman at 150 pts. Leaves enough room on your team for a few allies, like a Batman to outwit your opponents pieces defense powers.

Posted by: superfriend on 5/31/2013 7:30:25 AM
Sandman-this list is for modern age heroclix supermen. If it included golden age, Icon superman would make my list too. He is amazing.

Posted by: SerpentSociety11 on 5/31/2013 4:50:33 AM
What about the Veteran Superman [251 points] from the ICON set?

Still the best Superman to play for me!

Posted by: Sandman on 5/31/2013 4:07:42 AM
Solid list. I'm not a fan of the charging supermen though so they probably wouldn't make my top 5 cut. The TT one is strangely omitted.

Funny, I modded my tabapp supes with exactly the figure you recommended.

Oh man this is going to hurt to put this down, even in a public forum like this where others will see.

But I have to agree with Eric the TabApp Superman is awesome for his points.

Kidding Eric and I have agreed and not agreed on stuff while chatting during or after a game.

Ok all Kidding aside where is Emo Superman? Hahahahahaha. Why no love for the old school Supes witrh the Batman team ability? Remember when he was does shiznit? Or think back when we got Our Worlds of War Superman, remember how awesome he was? The first Supes with Hypersonic. Oh he was all the rage in his day.

Posted by: SeekerMuadib on 5/30/2013 3:23:50 PM
I dunno. The new 100 pt superman from the team base has dr3 at range. I really like him allot.
