On the one hand, Anti-Monitor was sold in retail stores in a boxed set so it is much more common and cheaper than SCAM.
On the other hand, SCAM probably a little more potent (in terms of his special powers) and cost fewer points than Anti-Monitor, so you can pack more support staff on to the team. Not that Anti-Monitor couldn't take SCAM in a fight, but Destined Desctructor is pretty brutal...
Or maybe there is some other criteria you were looking for? They really are two completely different characters and it is hard to compare them directly.
"How does [insert special power] work with the new 2013 rules?"
Most everything special power-wise, we're looking into. The PAC changes may change the way some special powers function; we're checking on them before the June release. In the meantime, ask your judge.
I think the last time this argument came up, it was described this way:
SCAM is more "front dial loaded"
Regular AM is "back dial loaded"
I've actually been thinking to buy a second copy of regular AM and mod the dial to make a SCAM copy for my personal use. I've seen a scam in person, but its more than I'm willing to spend. The local AM packs around here are sitting with 50% off tags on them.
Just need a copy of the dial...
Quebbster - "'Generic' has no official definition. Ask your judge."
Personally, I think that the Guardian of Fear (SCAM) is superior for his points. Destined Destructor is just such an effective special power.
I second this motion. The only downside to SCAM was that he did not have generics in the same box. Other than that, Guardian of Fear seems to be the more beastly to field. (Though I also own the other version and have a soft spot for it due to my COIE fanboyishness.)
