Along with having other powers, Spider-Man (Marvel) can also scale sheer surfaces easily.
Scale surfaces unassisted
The power to
fasten onto and climb vertical and horizontal surfaces without falling.
The user can climb walls and stay unto ceilings. The user does
not deny gravity, but has mutative "tarsi" or microscopic hooks on their volar (palm of hand) and plantar (sole of foot) skin allowing them latch unto structures (like an insect). Some users can disperse energy from their body into the surface allowing them to walk, run, or crawl on the walls. However in order to truly be "crawling" on the user must be able to maintain balance for long periods of time, compared to Wallrunning where the energy is only temporary.
Beings with super human strength or super strong and dense claws could simply dig their fingers or into a surface, then propelling upward and digging in again, generating the effect of wall crawling. In some cases, the user may simply be able to make use of any handholds they find, no matter how small, to wall crawl. Those with
Reptilian Mimicry could have microscopic satae on their hands and feet like a gecko, or a suction pads like a frog, working in a similar way to Spiderman's wall crawling.
Ceiling Cling - The user clings to the ceiling to either hide or ambush enemies.
- The user sticks to a wall and proceeds to jump off of it, often doing so between two walls. This also allows for a form of Wall Jump/Wall Kick Enhanced Jump.
Shoes, socks, and gloves may nullify this ability.
May have to concentrate to remain on the surface.
May only be able to stick to certain surfaces.
May not work if the wall is completely smooth with no handholds.
Wallcrawling Disruption is the perfect counter.
