Which Uncle Ben do you like better?

If there had already been a thread on this forgive me. Which Uncle Ben do you like better the one from the Toby McGuire movies or from the Andrew Garfield movies? I personally choose the Toby McGuire movies Uncle Ben. He seemed to fit my expectation a little more.

This one.



Seriously though, Tobey Maguire's uncle Ben. I was counting the seconds for Garfield's uncle Ben to die.

I preferred Garfield's version. It's just what Uncle Ben would be - firm but caring.

You don't need to comment on anything that compares anthing to TASM, we already know you think anything is better in every way than TASM.

I thought they were both stupid

...."just because you can beat someone up doesn't mean you should"
So what do I do...let him beat me up?

"I bet you feel pretty good now don't you because of your actions I have to miss my shift blah blah blah"

I'm in trouble for dunking on a kid who at the start of the movie kicked my guts in...really?

This Uncle Ben is the best Uncle Ben, as you can see Peter liked this one the best.

The Amazing Spider-man was clearly the superior one. He actually seem like a real parent. Like he could have been Peter's real father-figure. The other one was a little too passive. With the previous uncle Ben, you were kind of just waiting for him to die, so you could see Peter turn into Spider-man. The Amazing Spider-man fleshed out his character to where you actually care, and were sad when he was gone. I never thought with the Old Uncle Ben, that this is the man that help shape Peter Parker into Spider-man. The Amazing Spider-man's uncle Ben did, he was so much more influential to Peter's character. I can't believe how anyone can say other wise.
