Yes, I am a Spider man Fanatic.
I have the Super Poseable Classic Figures SPiderman 2099, Spiderman, Symbiote Spiderman, Original Spiderman, and the Scarlet Spider. In the Movie Line I have Spiderman, Battle Damaged Spiderman, The Green Goblin, and Norman Osborn. I have started Collecting all the Comics with Scarlet Spider and Spiderman 2099, and Have even gone so far as to design a Spiderman Guy myself called Spider Dan...or The Wicker Man, I haven't Quite Decided on that. People at School know of this hobby, and laugh with me. I have the Spiderman Ultimate Guide Next to my bed as my Holy Bible, metaphorically speaking.
Yes, I'm a Spiderman Fanatic, but for only one Spiderman.
The Scarlet Spider.
Possibly the most Underrated Spiderman, he did it because he both liked to help people, he enjoyed it, and of course because of Peter Parker and his Sense of ethics. His Webshooters were the external kind, and his costume...allow me to get into Spiderman Costumes now..
I admit that I used to like the Original Spiderman's costume, but now I don't like it quite as much, it's way too busy for me. These days I look at Spiderman 2099 and Scarlet Spider, elegant in their simplicity. Scarlet Spider's is basically a red jumpsuit with a Blue Sweater over it, with the Necessary Webshooters and belt. Spiderman 2099
is a blue Suit with Red Outlines, and a Airfoil cape. Ahhhh Yes. The Elegance of Simplistic Costumes. Now if they'd make a Damn Ben Reilly Spiderman Costume, My life would be Copacetic.
Ben Reilly was Peter Parker's clone, only one day when he returned to New York after Aunt Mays "Death". Well! He showed up, donned his Scarlet Spider suit, and history started.
Here's how it ended.
With Ben Reilly, thinking himself to be the real Spiderman, Sacrifices himself and throws himself in front of Peter, who happens to have a Goblin Glider going towards his back to Impale his sorry ass. And He now seems to be in the Realm reserved for Bucky and all those other annoying sidekicks.
No Return Graveyard.
It seems to me they'll never bring this guy back. Damn Damn DAMN.....Well I can gripe all I want it won't change anything, so let's move onto the Top Ten Portion.
This List includes Costumes, and People in the order of whom I like.
#1: Scarlet Spider
#2: Quick Change Spiderman
#3: Spiderman 2099
#6: The Slingers
#7: Spider Armor Spiderman
#8: Alex Ross Spiderman
#9: Symbiote Spiderman
Now here's why.
#4: An Angst Ridden Character who has a LEGITIMATE Reason to hate Parker and Reilly, he's Jealous.
#6: I loved the Slingers, Ricochet, Dusk, Prodigy, and Hornet. Ricochet was Cool, Prodigy was an asshole, Dusk was mysterious, and Hornet was Techie.
#8: This was supposed to be one of the Movie COstumes for Spiderman, but I believe what happened was that some Bastard Stole the thing off the Set, and so they went with the classic costume. Damn.
#10: He's a freak.
