Simply genius. Also, Spiderman Vs. Kingpin another incredible title as you pointed out. Many people viewed the Saturn and Dreamcast as failure systems, but to anyone who played Capcom's Marvel Superhero's using a converter cartridge for Saturn, knew it was a far superior version to the Playstation crap they put out. As for the Dreamcast, Namco's Soul Calibur remained one of the most beautiful and well put together fighting titles for that generation of systems. Unfortunately, these systems did not meet with public success for whatever reason (perhaps lack of third party support), and I don't think Sega has been the same since. However, they were a power once and if they manage to pull off a few good titles they could be a power again in my opinion. Hopefully, Captain America will be one of those titles to help them return to their former glory.
After Dreamcast and Sega's move to being simply a game developer, they changed into a different company. That's why we don't look back at those titles and hope for the best, because they are pretty awful now. They can't even do justice to the franchise that made them so popular(sonic) anymore, so it's hard to hold out hope that they'd do justice to marvel's various franchises.
