    All other things aside, good gravy yes. The X-Men have been butchered (mostly) since X1 & 2, and I NEVER get enough War Machine on-screen.

    Tony is great, but THIS makes me bounce in my theater seat like a little kid.

    Deathseed reacted to phillos in how many cores?   
    1 core set.  Take advantage of FFG giving you a complete play set in 1 core for the first time and stop at 1.

    Ms. Marvel made the New York Times Best Seller list for graphic novels, ya goofball.  It's also been one of the best-selling digital comics since its debut in 2013, or as you would probably say, "10 seconds ago."
    I am definitely blaming you for your "observation," although it really tells us more about your biases than anything else.

    Unfortunately it's everywhere, even in our comics and games.  Don't blame me for simply making the observation.  You also should check your male privilege before mansplaining it to me.

    I also think the idea that FFG should just sort heroes by "popularity" and then issue packs based on that is poppycock.
    That's ludicrous and was never going to happen.
    They need the hook. Releasing characters of varying familiarity seems obvious. They don't want to have the game running along just fine mechanically in 2023 and have the only options for hero packs be Wiccan and Iron Heart. FFG wants to be able to snag ya right when you're thinking of giving up.
    "Do I really need to keep buying Champions? Maybe I have enough? OOH, they just announced Wolverine", etc.
    They will absolutely release heroes that are lower in popularity (defined by... some metric) than other heroes first. The first pack is Captain America, about as famous as they could have gone. The second is Ms. Marvel. I'll wager the remaining half of this donut on my desk against your 50 cents that in the next four hero packs we see 2 big names, and 2 lesser known names.

    I think you're on to something. I think Fantasy Flight and Disney said "Hey, we could sell a lot of units selling the cool names, but I bet if we pander to SJWs we could sell less! Let's do that!" I like where your head's at.
    You know who loves Ms. Marvel? My 3 year old son.
    He doesn't know what a comic book is. He gets all his Marvel information from a product line called Marvel's Super Hero Adventures, in which Captain Marvel and Ms. Marvel feature very prominently (along with Black Widow, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Cap, and Black Panther). I've spent around $300 on MSHA merch in the last year. I subscribe to Marvel Unlimited, and Marvel Champions and Marvel Unlimited will end up being a rounding error in the year's budget for what I spend on Marvel.
    Ten years ago, nobody knew who the Guardians of the Galaxy were, or who Iron Man was, etc. Most of the world didn't know who Nick Fury was.
    Disney decides who is cool. The market has some say in it, if they tank a property, obviously, but Disney and Marvel are already planning the next ten years.
    And they've decided they'll make more money representing the world instead of just white people.
    Ms. Marvel will sell just fine.

    Oh shut it.

    Leave that crap out of it, we get enough of that nearly everywhere else. You want to debate social engineering, go to Facebook or Twitter.

    Besides, some of us have always liked She-Hulk. I'm a child of the 70s, and I like her and have for quite a long while. Plenty of room for her in the game, and plenty of time to expand into other (more main-stream) heroes. I'm actually pretty happy to see her make an appearance. I feel she gets overlooked too often. Smart, powerful, beautiful Hulk in control of her power? Cool. Let's watch her kick butt.

    I even generally like Captain Marvel while being indifferent to the movie. Spaceship blasting space-hero lady with an awesome costume? Cool. Let's watch her kick butt.

    And the two male choices are two of my favorite heroes since childhood, Iron Man and Spider-Man? I mean, Pete has been my favorite all my life.

    Sign me up.

    I will say, i'd replace Marvel with Spider-Gwen in a hot second, but I get why they didn't go with her.

    /but man oh man I look forward to her in an expansion pack

    Wow this game is GOOD.

    Just, whoa.

    My investment in my Rebel expansions will truly be worthwhile.

    You have no idea how much your fans appreciate only needing one core to get a complete set. This is something that has been asked for for years, and you finally delivered. This has not gone unnoticed. Gone are the days of needing to drop $120 to try out an LCG.

    JJ may make formulaic movies, but dammit, if we could just rewrite time to hand him the reins of TLJ anyway, we could have had a somewhat consistent and uninterrupted story (and a generally better movie to boot).

    I agree.  Rian was a terrible idea.  The biggest problem Star Wars has at the moment is a lack of one creative executive with a team of competent advisors guiding the story arc.
    The best thing they can do now is just stop mutilating our favourite characters and tell a completely new story.  Solo without Lando, Han or Chewie would have been better, and things like Mandalorian seem like a good move.  I’d rather risk three standalone movies from three different directors than the current formula of train-wreck trilogies.
