I cant be the only one to find "the spider car" creepy.

If something like this muddled towards me I would scream like a dotty old woman and thoroughly crap all over myself.

It's pretty cool, but a little pointless.

They should've made this one of Shadow's vehicles in Sonic '06.

I like it. It's a certainly noisy, though.

"Where are we going?"

"We're going to follow the spider car."

"WHY?!"

That kid wins.

Wild Wild West, Jim West, desperado, rough rider
No you don't want nada
None of this, six gun in this, brotha runnin this,
Buffalo soldier, look it's like I told ya
Any damsel that's in distress
Be out of that dress when she meet Jim West
Rough neck so go check the law and abide
Watch your step with flex and get a hold in your side
Swallow your pride, don't let your lip react,
You don't wanna see my hand where my hip be at,
With all of this, from the start of this,
Runnin the game, James West tamin the west so remember the name
Now who ya gonna call?

Not the G.B.'s

Now who you gonna call?

*G double E G*

If you have a riff with people wanna bust,
Break out before you get bumrushed at the (Wild Wild West)
When I roll into the (Wild Wild West)
When I stroll into the (Wild Wild West)
When I bounce into the (Wild Wild West) Sisqo, Sisqo

We going straight to the Wild Wild West
We going straight to the Wild Wild West

Now, now, now, now once upon a time in the west
Mad man lost his damn mind in the west
Loveless, givin up a dime, nothin' less
Now I must put his behind to the test (can you feel me)
Then through the shadows, in the saddle, ready for battle
Bring all your boys in, here come the poison
Behind my back, all the riffin' ya did,
Front and center, now when you look back kid?
Who dat is? A mean brotha, bad for your health
Lookin damn good though, if I could say it myself
Told me Loveless is a mad man, but I don't fear that
Got mad weapons too, ain't tryin to hear that
Tryin to bring down me, this champion
When y'all clowns gon' see that it can't be done
Understand me son, I'm the slickest they is,
I'm the quickest as they is, did I say I'm the slickest they is
So if you barking up the wrong tree we comin, don't be startin nothin
Me and my partner gonna test your chest, Loveless
Can't stand the heat then get out the Wild Wild West

We going straight to (when I roll into the)the Wild Wild
West (when I stroll into the)
We going straight to (when I bounce into the)the Wild Wild
West
We going straight to the Wild Wild West
We going straight to the Wild Wild West

To any outlaw tryin to draw, thinkin you're bad,
Any draw on West best with a pen and a pad,
Don't even think about it, six gun, weighin a ton,
10 paces and turn, just for fun, son,
Up till sundown, rolling around,
See where the bad guys are to be found and make 'em lay down,
The defenders of the west,
Crushin on pretenders in the west,
Don't mess with us cuz we're in the (Wild Wild West)

We going straight to the Wild Wild West
We going straight to the Wild Wild West
We going straight to the Wild Wild West
We going straight to the Wild Wild West
We going straight to the Wild Wild West
We going straight to the Wild Wild West, come on

(Wild Wild West)
When I roll into the
(Wild Wild West)
When I stroll into the
We going straight to the Wild Wild West (the Wild Wild West)
(Wild, Wild West) whoo, uh
(Wild Wild West) ha ha ha ha
(Wild Wild West) uh Dru, Dru
(Wild Wild West) I done done it again y'all done done it again
(Wild Wild West) ha ha ha ha
(Wild Wild West) Big Will, Dru Hill, uh
(Wild Wild West) Big Will, Dru Hill ha ha ha ha
(Wild Wild West) *the Wild Wild West*
(Wild Wild West) uh
(Wild Wild West) one time
(Wild Wild West) uh,
(Wild Wild West) *the wild wild west* bring in the heat, bring in the
heat, what?
(Wild Wild West)
(Wild Wild West) uh can't stop the bumrush
*the Wild Wild* (the Wild Wild West)

They gonna have to mass market those in the future. Maybe even make them move like other animals. Hell, they should be able to transform.

There's actually a fairly amusing story behind the Spidermobile. Spidey didn't want it, he thought it was a stupid idea. But a car company gave him some needed cash to promote their stuff by driving around in it. I t was only about five issues before he drove it into the bay.

There's a decent summary of the Spider-Mobile's comic book history here:

http://www.spidervillain.com/Equipment/ ... obile.html

The real life story behind the Spider-Mobile is pretty interesting too. Here's an extract from an interview with writer Gerry Conway in Titan Books' Comics Creators on Spider-Man.
I have to ask about the Spider-Mobile. Did you have problems with the whole concept?

I love the Spider-Mobile. There's a Toys 'R' Us that my daughter and I used to go to in Santa Monica. She always wanted to go on this little ride there, and it was a Spider-Mobile! But to explain: as an administrator, Stan Lee's strong suit was that he was not an administrator. When the business people would come to him and say they wanted to do something, Stan would always say, "Okay". Some toy company came to Marvel, and said they could sell a whole bunch of Spider-Man toys if Spidey had a car. So Stan told us to give Spider-Man a car. I pointed out that Spidey was a web-swinger and cars go on the ground, a potential conflict. Stan said he didn't care how we did it as long as we gave Spidey a car. He even said we could sink it if we wanted, so we did. We came up with a story where Spider-Man gets a car, and it sinks in the East River.

So, the comic's story wasn't too far from the actual story. I see...

Yeah, when I heard about the story I basically imagined a car driving up a building, like Spider-Man. Not to say I was disappointed by seeing an actual moving mechanical spider-vehicle, but still. It would have been cooler.

The guy's a supervillain in training. Why build such a vehicle if not for evil?

Yeah. Just look at Lex Luthor from the old Superboy comics.
