Anyone up to date on Scarlet Spider? If so, how is it? I dropped off about six or so months ago and I'm thinking of getting back into it.

I was picking it up as it was a quite enjoyable book, but I just recently decided to drop it for a while. The book's still well-written and all, but the most recent story arc didn't really do it for me. I'll probably keep my eye on it to see what's going on, and I won't be surprised if it ends up back on my buylist.

With all the recent changes in the Marvel titles (switching up creative teams and such), I've been modifying my regular books (including dropping quite a few Avengers books and getting back into X-titles). And I have to say, i'm so glad I finally checked out Fraction's Hawkeye, which is quickly becoming my fave Marvel title right now.

It started losing me a bit right before Minimum Carnage started - same thing with Venom. It wasn't that Scarlet was bad necessarily, just seemed like it was starting to lose its way. And I've only read the first two issues of Hawkeye, but you're right, it's very good.

Finally broke 10,000,000 on the Iron Man table in Marvel Pinball 3D!

Is that for Wii U as well as 3DS?
I have been thinking of getting it for Wii U. The Marvel tables there-selves have me hyped!

I don't have a Wii U, so unfortunately I'm not aware of what tables are available.

I have really been wanting to get the Venom comic. Venom is one of my all-time favorite comic book characters ever!

You should check the series out then. I had a blast with it up until some of the more recent issues, and even then, it wasn't really that bad. Just know, this is a very different Venom from the one in the 90s.

I know what'll be fun. I'll list a Marvel and a Nintendo character, and everyone can say who they think would win (this isn't a voting or tournament thing. It's just for fun).

Thor - Super strength, super speed, super durability, flight, summons lightning, expert at wielding war hammer. Overcomes foes with brute force.

Link - Super strength (Golden Gauntlets), super speed (Pegasus Boots), limited area of super durability (Mirror Shield. More durable than Hylian shield, which can withstand volcanic debris), reflects magical/energy attacks (Mirror Shield), expert swordsman & marksman (with bow & arrow), competent with various trinkets (boomerangs, bombs, ect). Fights smart (cautiously attempts to find opponent's weakness, before exploiting it).

BTW, if Thor has other established powers/tendancies I'm not aware of (I'm going off of what I remember from the movies), feel free to inform me.

Thor would win easily..

Mmm Chicken

I'm a big Link fan, but yeah, Thor would probably win.

Thanks to his highly skilled reflexes, the great boost in strength due to the Golden Gauntlets, and the seemingly indestructible Mirror Shield, Link could probably hold his own for awhile against any hit (and the Mirror Shield would probably negate any lightning attack), but just one little slip up, & Thor's hammer would rip him a new one.

Also, none of Link's gadgets would be of much use (normal arrows, boomerangs, and bombs probably wouldn't have much, if any impact), which would only leave the Master Sword (which although much more powerful than normal weapons, wouldn't be as effective against a non-evil foe), and redirecting Thor's lightning through the Mirror Shield (which he'd probably only be able to do once, since Thor would probably stop using lightning after that one time).

Yeah I heard that it is more of a secret ops type of book. Still symbiote is symbiote. Although I do like the rampaging Venom the best.

Just broke my high score on the Iron Man table, again!

This time I got 11,885,000.

I didn't make it onto any of the all time leaderboards, but I'm 16th on the weekly worldwide leaderboard, and 5th on the weekly national leaderboard

Yeah, I'd say that table is one of the hardest to get a good score on. I think my score is about 15,000,000..

@hawkeyewii Yeah it's on the Wii U eshop. The initial download for the game is free and you can either pay $2.99 for certain tables, or pay $10 for a pack of 4 tables..

Mmm Chicken

HawkeyeWii

So is it just Marvel Pinball or is it Zen Pinball with Marvel add ons?

Having a pretty good day! I also broke my record on the Fantastic Four table!

21,800,000.

Again, I didn't make it onto any of the all time leaderboards, but as far as weekly goes, I got 33rd worldwide, and 15th nationwide.

I'm taking a bit of a break from Marvel Pinball 3D, for the night.

The Iron Man table is showing it's irritating side (could barely get 2 mil on my last two runs).
