Themed Challenge 3 (Amazing Spider-Man 2): Electro vs. Spiderman

Electro has realized his full potential, and is going after the 'selfish' Spider-Man. In this progression, they go to the Oscorp's energy farm, which has many vertical pillars. This is when the epic fight begins. The pillars are in the form of a \(4\times4\) grid, oriented with cardinal directions, with Electro in the South-West corner and Spider-Man in the North-East corner. Now, Electro can only move \(1\) pillar adjacent to the pillar he is currently on (pillars diagonal to his current pillar are not adjacent), while Spider-Man can only move diagonally, not to adjacent pillars. Both of them move simultaneously every time. If, after both move, Spider-Man is on a pillar adjacent to Electro, Electro can attack Spider-Man. If, after both move, Electro is on a pillar diagonal from Spider-Man, then Spider-Man can attack Electro. If both are approaching the same pillar, Electro will immediately teleport to that pillar, and Spider-Man will web-sling back to the last pillar he was on, and move to some other pillar. If after a single attack, both of them stop moving, and in every move, both of them must move, who is more likely to attack the other?

Details: Assume Spider-Man and Electro are conniving strategists, and will make the best possible move.
