Well this set again produces another Spiderman and he continues to be a very productive and competitive piece. So the question presented is out of the 19 possible Spiderman in each set WHICH is your favorite?
SPIDERMAN IC REV
Black Suit IC Spiderman UNIQUE
Six Armed CT Spiderman unique
Xplosion Spiderman Unique
Spiderman CM REV
Spiderman Ult REV
Peter Parker ULT LE
Spiderman MM REV
Peter Parker MM LE
Spiderman 2099 Unique
House of M Spiderman Unique
I can't decide! To me, they're all missing something. The new AW Spidey has a pretty great dial, except he has no TA. The original IC Spidey has great numbers, but is missing Super Senses (how could they forget that??) and has a short range.
And of course none of them have 6 range and 2 targets!! Something I'd consider freakin' obvious if I wasn't faced with the reality of 19 Spideys that didn't get it.
If they would just give a Spidey 6 range 2 targets and his own TA (on the same figure), I would be happy. They seem to be pretty good at everything else.
I voted for CM Spidey, because he's my favorite Spidey sculpt. (I like 2099 too, but if you know your lore, he's not actually Spidey, so I didn't wanna vote for him. Great sculpt though.)
I had high hopes for the House of M spidey, but I really don't like they pose he's in. It just looks awkward.
I never play any spideys. I'm an X-Men fan, so I usually have mutant-heavy teams, just because of my nature. (If I need a power, or power combo, I look for an X-Man who has it before looking to my otehr figures, in other words) My friends a Spider-Man fan, he's played with damn near all of them at least once.
In any event, I think CM was the bet "Peter Parker" spidey sculpt. I also think that taht being said, I also think the XP, Ult, & MM Spideys were completely unnecissary (once again, this is from a visual figure standpoint, not a gameplay one. I have no idea of their gameplay value.) Though XP predates CM, so I suppose little can be doen about that one. Ult & MM however seemed a waste of a good slot to me. Could have at least made a Ben Reilly Spidey, or a Cosmic Spidey, or an Armored Spidey, or any of the other 100 Spidey variants out there. So many versions of the same figure in the same costume, in relatively uninteresting poses kinda dissapointed me. (Same as Elektra, Daredevil, and a few of the Hulks ya'know? But at least the Hulks usually change versions, unlike the Spideys. The hulks are different and interesting Hulks form different eras. Only 2 (not counting mail-away leaping since it wasn't an actual "set piece") were your standard classic, "Savage Hulk." as opposed to Spidey's 4.
Wolverine has been great with change-ups too. No two have been the same version thus far. Basically all I'm saying is we've all accepted it as inevitable that we'll get a Spidey, a Wolvy, and quite often a Hulk in each set, but at least the other two haven't become as stale as Spidey has. Sculpt wise.
What does surprise the hell outta me however, is that we haven't seen an Astonishing Wolverine in this set. (Couls have been REV, leaving U for House of M I guess. Iunno...) I was really expecting what with Spider-Woman, Sentry, & Power Man all hitting the clix world so close together, an Avengers Wolvy wouldn't be far behind. Meh... *Shrugs*
