To this day I still believe a Batman version of the ride would be better than Spider-Man or any other possible hero. Batman's rogues are way more recognizable than the Sinister Syndicate.Daily Planet scoop vehicles instead of Daily Bugle? Haha. I always thought Batman would've worked better as a dark ride.
Eh, Im kinda glad we got Spiderman. Batman may be more recognizable, but some of the best moments in Spider-Man (being caught in Spidey's web, flying around New York, etc) wouldnt be possible with Batman, whos more grounded in reality. Spiderman is the more stylized comic which lends itself better to that type of attraction, IMO.To this day I still believe a Batman version of the ride would be better than Spider-Man or any other possible hero.

Here's a never-before-seen look at the early development of MARVEL SUPER HERO ISLAND at Universal's Islands Of Adventure theme park.
Back when the project was first being developed, the S&S Worldwide Space Shot ride system didn't exist, so DR. DOOM'S FEAR FALL was initially envisioned as a first generation Intamin Free Fall!
Can we please have someone who KNOWS, not thinks, but KNOWS, either verify or debunk this rumor? It's as bad as the "outlines of the FF outside Doom's" rumor.It's Capt. America who you can hear dying by the restaurant.
It was reused for Disaster’s queue, I believe. Hopefully it’s still around because they should’ve added it back during the refurb.Don't know where else to post this but Hulk use to have a tank after the corkscrew. Anyone know what happened to it? I think it would be really cool if it was still there today.
Sorry for the blurry pic, it's from a random on-ride POV from 2006.
Going around the voices..I would argue it could be actually Neil Ross over Tom Kane, more in how his tempo seems to be more close to what is heard in Fearfall as opposed to Kane's.Who does the voice of Doom in Doctor Doom's Fear Fall? I've been wanting to know this for over a year now; and since the Spider-Man ride has the VAs from the '90s show, I think Tom Kane voiced Doom because that's who his VA was when he appeared in the final season of the '90s Spider-Man cartoon.
How about Simon Templeton? After all, Neil Ross was only Doom from 1994 to 1995. It could also be Lorne Kennedy from Marvel vs. Capcom.Going around the voices..I would argue it could be actually Neil Ross over Tom Kane, more in how his tempo seems to be more close to what is heard in Fearfall as opposed to Kane's.
Dredged up this old Teebin post. He certainly knows his plant stuff. ....Interesting info, and a bit different than the generic Seuss palm story you generally hear.Just to clarify the story of the bent palm trees in Seuss Landing. The trees were not literally bent by the winds of the hurricane as a palm trunk only has so much sway to them and cannot be permanently bent by wind. Trunked palms blow over from their roots becoming loosened in the wet soil long before they would ever snap in half. What did happen to bend them was the hurricanes blew the entire palm tree partially over, lets say at a 70 degree angle. All plants want to grow towards the sun, so the trees just naturally started growing their new trunks upwards creating a bend.
Those are Washington Palms which grow very fast, especially in south Florida. A few of them had to have been caught up in more than one hurricane as they bend twice, meaning they were blown over in one direction at some point and then the opposite direction at a later time.
