HeroClix Logo Keychain Superman#1 Superman (TabApp 001)

Once you make the proper modifications to his sculpt, it’s easy to see why this Superman takes the #1 spot. He has all the powers and abilities one would desire for a Superman and big blue starts out with an effective range of 13. With his team Superman team ability he will almost certainly make the alpha strike.

Being 50 points cheaper than SM001 Superman awards tab-app Supes just enough points to get some support in place to make him more effective and possibly qualify for the theme team bonus.

HeroClix Superman Tabapp Dial

HeroClix streets of GothamA 19 starting defense can be boosted by hindering terrain or a teammates Perplex, making him a very hard target to hit. His special power not only grants a full dial of Super Strength, it also gives him the ability to cause a clix of penetrating damage after damage has been resolved (and don't forget the clicks of Exploit Weakness).

His defense values never drops below 17 with mostly Impervious and Invulnerability, and late dial spikes back up to a 19 defense with Regeneration to put him back in the game.  

As for his sculpt, I highly recommend using the Streets of Gotham Superman sculpt as you will probably never play him with these other options to choose from.

Did your favorite Modern Age Superman make the list? Let us know below!

@ 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.

I dunno. The new 100 pt superman from the team base has dr3 at range. I really like him allot.
