More On: Spider-Man: Web of Shadows
Spider-Man is currently swinging through a purgatory populated with good and bad games he's taken the lead role in.  It's not a great place to be.  And while Activision isn't necessarily out of ideas, they want consumers to start mouse-clicking what the customer ultimately wants.  They aren't accepting script submissions for Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, but they did let this year's New York Comic Con members cast their vote on the game's voice actors.  In this month's Comic Con in San Diego, members will pick the perfect models to portray Black Cat and Mary Jane in the game.  You can also go to SeizeControl.com right now to vote on your favorite game box cover art.  Admittedly, both are pretty sweet-looking, though I'm leaning towards the crossed-arms one.  It almost has a GTA-like quality to its design, featuring iconic characters in Spidey's grid-locked outfit.
