It is usually accomplished by intense physical training, being bitten by an animal who already does that, or special gloves or technology or something. It's impressive and useful for a myriad of jobs.This is the one cool thing that almost saves Spider-Man from being totally lame, but somehow he is still totally lame. It was consistently voted in the top 5 "Superpowers For The Purposes of Sex" unless it involves sticky hands, which everyone agrees is nasty.

Also CalledEdit

Adhesive Climbing

Wall Adhesion

Wall Clinging

Surface Scaling



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. 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.

Universe DifferencesEdit

In some cases, shoes, socks, and gloves disable the use of the power. In other cases the amount of energy trasmitted into the surface is a limit. If the energy were to stop being transmitted into the surface the user could fall.
