THIS is a matter of personal opinion or preference. EACH has abilities that are valuable in different situations. To summarize: Slam Bam is a WATER element, Cynder is UNDEAD. SB is big and relatively slow even when upgraded. Cynder is small and can fly when upgraded. SB is a powerful puncher. C is a shooter (shoots something kind of like lightning) FLYER's can travel faster and delivery bombs quicker. Flyers CAN fly over water. SB is water so water is not a problem for him/her. SB comes with the Empire of Ice adventure pack. C can be purchased individually or in a 3 pack. I have both. I use both. I switch characters as needed, and sometime frequently during a game. However, when it comes to a fight, I generally prefer a SHOOTER like cynder, one that can shoot FAST with a wide pattern like Cynder is even better. I also prefer Flyers, when possible, because when jumping, OPENING the figures wings at the top of the arc, will give you just a tiny bit more "glide" than a non-flyer. Also FLYER's are faster when trying to clear a level in UNDER the magic time number. I can do it easier with a flyer than a slow walker. I just wish Flyers could get a LITTLE higher off the ground. They still fall in holes just like walkers. If I had to choose one over the other, I would choose Cynder. AGAIN, this is a matter of personal preference. I am sure there are other folks that will argue that SB is better. Don't get me wrong, I use SB a LOT. I have ALL the skylanders but two. Camo and Warnado and I am just waiting for those to hit the stores. If you use ALL of them, level all of them up to 10, and buy ALL the upgrades for ALL of them, you will find each has unique skills that are handy in certain situations. For example Prism Break is slow and he is a lousy shot. However, in the MINES he can smash those purple crystals without needing a BOMB. He can also smash throw the rocks without needing a pick axe.
Generally speaking, in a fight SHOOTERS are better. Especially if they can shoot a LOT, like trigger happy, or have bullets or missles that seek their target. Like HEX.

Whatever you choose, level them up, purchase the upgrades, and PUT A HAT ON THEM. Pick a hat that adds something like SPEED to a slow skylander. You can change Hats as the need arises. When you get better, do the Heroic Challenges, succeed and your skylander will receive even more of some kind of power.
