Spider-Man Marvel vs. Capcom 3 analysis by SumoSlamMan

Spider-Man Marvel vs. Capcom 3 analysis by SumoSlamMan SumoSlamMan has put together another handy analysis guide for Marvel vs. Capcom 3. This one covers Spider-Man.

If you're curious about how this fighter plays and what some of his special attributes are, this is a good place to look. Here's a blurb.

Specials — Web Zip

Spider-Man’s pseudo 8-way air dash. Spidey shoots a bit of webbing at either an upward or downward 45 degree angle and you can do it either forwards to apply pressure, or backwards as an escape (Video 2 – 1:41). It can be cancelled by attacks, and used from the air or the ground (Video 2 – 1:41). Much like Amaterasu’s 8-way air dash, the webbing needs to hit a surface before he zips so if you’re firing it far away make sure you’re safe.

It does a little bit of damage on hit (Video 2 – 1:41) and it stuns for a hot second which might open up some combo opportunities, but I see this move as a way to close the distance and really apply pressure.

As always, you can find a full index of SumoSlamMan's MvC3 analysis articles here on the EventHubs.com forums.
