I already listed the top 10 (and a couple dozen runners-up) of 2010, but have yet to share MY favorites of the year. (Warning you now…there’s almost NO crossover.)

#10

The Spot (Web of Spider-Man #051)

WHY I WANT TO PLAY HIM EVERY WEEK:

I have a soft spot in my heart for the ridiculous aspects of comics in general. There’s nothing more ridiculous than The Spot. He’s also surprisingly effective, with his HSS-lite (he’s a Transporter) and SP ability to pop next to blocking or walls and Flurry someone.

I DON’T PLAY HIM EVERY WEEK BECAUSE:

He got weak offense numbers, requiring extra investment into Perplex or something. His 51-point cost also prices him out of the below-50 games where he shines.

I’M PLAYING HIM AGAIN:

Probably on a Scientist themed team, even though he doesn’t really fit that well. I’ll probably team him up with SI Mr. Fantastic to really make him a surprise beast.

Green Goblin (Web of Spider-Man #058) / Doctor Octopus (Web of Spider-Man #054)

WHY I WANT TO PLAY THEM EVERY WEEK:

It’s really not at all about their playability. Both pieces are OK Super Rares that I didn’t really have to have and actually initially planned to trade away.

But then I got them in hand and looked at the sculpts:

The maniacal grin and double-fisted pumpkin bomb pose...so ridiculously amusing

and…

It's a great sculpt. But it's the MONEY BAGS that make it awesome FUN.

These are two of only three characters in the game that I want to play just for the sculpt alone. (The third is Nightwing & Starfire. Recently sold them.)

I DON’T PLAY THEM EVERY WEEK BECAUSE:

They’re never a first choice as characters or for playability, so they’re well down the list.

I’M PLAYING THEM AGAIN:

Next Sinister Syndicate team, of course. Before that, I also have an all-Doc Ock team ready to run co-starring the Secret Invasion, Ultimates and Clobberin’ Time versions.

Tomorrow: A couple of Justice Leaguers.
