As you may already know that there are several versions of Spider-man around for MUGEN. I decided to re-examine the different versions. I am currently aware of 11 different versions of Spider-man for MUGEN. They are all wonderful and offer things that the others don't. I'm planning several new Grudge Match posts featuring Spider-man and that brought up a question. Out of 11 versions which versions should I use? Here is a summary of all the versions under considerations:
|Symbiote Spider-man||Seth Zankuten||NA||NA||NA||Not Released Yet|
|Spider-man||Infinity Team Mugen||7||7||8||http://infinitymugenteam.com/|
|Scarlet Spider||FreeMadison||N/A||N/A||9||Looking for this one|
|Iron Spider||Unknown||N/A||N/A||9||Looking for this one|
|Acey,Jason Todd, and r@ce45||8||6||8||Infinity Mugen Team|
I have ran a few tests pitting the different versions against one another. Here are the top ones on my list and why. These version will show up in Grudge Matches.
1. ZVitor's Spider-man
I love this version. You have a lot of moves that executed differently than all other versions. I love the "machine-gun" web ball when you can shoot many, many shots at your opponent. I also like the move when Spider-man shoot two weblines into the ground and uses them to sling shot himself into his opponent. By far his favorite move of mine is called "One for J.J." which is a hyper where Spider-man shoots a picture and you see Spider-man attack and snap shots are taken every few seconds. IT is really cool! I love how it looks and it's never the same twice! It however can be blocked.
2. Acey and Sludge's Spider-man
This version is also really, really cool! I love the changes that were made. You still have good symbiote moves but I really like the Iron Spider Hyper. This version must be included in your MUGEN roster. I love the sprite work. He also controls really well.
3. Erradicator's Spider-man
One of my favorite Spider-man since I first started paying attention to MUGEN. The first thing that got my attention about this version is the really cool video introduction when you select him in Arcade mode. In terms of play, I like the way the character fights. It is easy to pull off moves like the web throw that I always had problems pulling off in the arcades and Playstation. You really need this one!
4. Empawk's Spider-man
Since the first time I put this version on my blog there has been a lot of controversy. Apparently this is an edited character. I've never gotten the full story but I tend to think that the character is fun in it's own right. It is very powerful...some think over-powered. But setting all that aside, it is a part of my mugen roster. Give it a try.
