Whilst the Spot does not have super-tough pores and skin like Luke Cage or drive fields just like the Invisible Lady, he’s in reality relatively “bulletproof,” as bullets that hit the portals on his frame move in a single spot and out any other, whilst a laser that is going in a single spot is dispersed via all the others. The similar applies for bodily assaults, as noticed on one instance the place Ohnn redirects Spider-Guy’s fist proper into Spidey’s personal face, giving “glance out, right here comes the Spider-Guy” an surprising (and pain-inducing) new meaning. This implies of protection does have a drawback, on the other hand, as allies of the Spot can get harm in the event that they occur to be within the trajectory of the spot the place the bullet, laser or bodily blow emerges.
Nonetheless, there are extra upsides than downsides to how the Spot’s portals can give protection to him, and the similar holds true when they are now not hooked up to his frame. In “Peter Parker, the Impressive Spider-Guy” #100, for example, Ohnn smooshes a number of of his spots in combination into a large portal, which shields him from hurt through teleporting a net of webbing Spider-Guy throws at him away. But that too has a caveat, for must the Spot have pulled too many spots off himself and cannot succeed in any of those he is got rid of in time, he turns into about as simple to hurt as every other human.
