Side by side video comparison between the new Amazing Spider-Man trailer and Mirror's Edge

Like everybody else on the internet, we couldn't help but notice the similarities between the brand-new trailer for the Amazing Spider-Man reboot and EA's free-running game, Mirror's Edge. The reason for this is because it's a bloody rip-off of Faith's antics, as the video below proves. But the homage demonstrated for Marvel's web-slinging hero has us all needlessly excited about the possibility of a Spider-Man game done this way.

The mash-up is highly unlikely to spawn a new Spidey game in FPS (First Person Slinger) but it did make us wonder, which other comic book stars would suit which type of game genre? Superman in a kart racer perhaps? Who wouldn't want Super-Manio Kart, eh? Hello? Oh. And that's the best we've got but we're sure there are more that you brainy lot will be able to recommend in the comments below.
