I have both but the AAC is new for me this year, when it bloomed I though from the kitchen window that it was SM. I did see later on that the throat comes out a little large on AAC. If you were choosing between the two, which would you choose and why? I really like SM so AAC will have a lot to live up to for me.

Well, I have both plants that were acquired in 2016: So it is way too early to be making definite judgements on them.
'All American Chief': Acquired 04-27-2016

'Spider Man': Acquired 09-28-2016

But, at this point 'Spider Man' is way ahead of 'All American Chief', and here in my garden 'Spider Man' has to be much taller than the 24 inch registerd height. I am going to measure it, I think the rain has stopped for a while.
The huge blooms of 'All American Chief' were great, but so far there have been few of them. But, 'Spider Man' has bloomed and rebloomed . I just seem to keep taking photos of it. 'Spider Man' has been a top performer so far in my garden.
Edited:
No, I was wrong 'Spider Man' stands out in the garden, but it was exactly 24 inches tall: We have had hard rain on and off all day just finished another down power and the bloom held up very well I think.
