First Armored Spider-Man Unlocked!

That is Astral Zephyr, the first player in the world to unlock the Armored Spider-Man in the Super Hero Squad Online game.  The code he needed to beat everyone to the punch was found on a card pulled out of a pack in Redmond, Washington during last night’s Sneak Preview tournament at Uncle’s Games.  You are looking at history.

The screenshot was taken by our newest SquadCard Champion, Venusian Iguana Hat!  And the card was not actually ripped from the pack by Astral Zephyr…

Grey Enchantress Spirit actually pulled the card, but Astral Zephyr has the best kids ever and he got to pilot the Armored Spider-Man before anyone else in the world.  He is now a Super Hero Squad superstar.
