    I hate the fact that there are Two Spider-mans there. The Black Spiderman doesn't need to be the Queen. Black Cat should be the queen.

    I'd Be More interested in an X-men one.

    Cyclops - King
    Jean - Queen
    Wolverine - Bishop
    Boshop - Bishop
    Angel - Knight
    Beast - Knight
    Iceman - Rook
    Colossus - Rook
    Pawns - I dunno


    Magneto - King
    Mystique - Queen
    Sabertooth - Bishop
    Pyro - Bishop
    Toad - Knight
    Mastermind - Knigt
    Avalanche - Rook
    Blob - Rook

    Pawns - Either Sentinels or stanrd Acolytes

    How about Mary Jane?

    And i'd probably replace Moon Knight and Blade with characters more integral to the Spider-Man Universe;
    Maybe Prowler, and then make Cloak and Dagger seperate pieces...

    Anyway, my wife is gonna ***** about the price 'til the cows come home, but i'm STILL probably going to get this.

    It's freaking gorgeous!

    ...I really don't like it that much. After the great work they turned out on the Aliens and AVP chess sets, I guess I just got it too pumped up in my mind.

    I'll pass, regardless of the price. I think I liked the Spiderman monopoly more.
