  1. no I really don't. Very few people I know are comic book enthusiasts...I was never much of one either actually. Most of my knowledge of Marvel comics comes from a rpg I played a lot when i was younger that used to be produced by TSR, now wizards of the coast ,called Marvel super heroes. They used to release large folder packs with detailed powers and histories of even the most obscure marvel characters. I don't think Iron man was ever anywhere as popular as say spider man but every pictures or posters I ve ever seen where they would show a bunch of Marvel heroes grouped together, he was always front and center along with Spidey, hulk, Captain America, Thor, some of the X-Men and the fantastic four
  2. Its still ranked 147 on bgg...out of thousands of games worldwide even though its 7 years old. I m not saying it would have flopped if it had included Ms Marvel among its initial offerings but it makes it easier to market with top tiers characters before going to the lesser known. I seriously doubt Guardians of the Galaxy for instance would have even received a pitch meeting if it had been the first proposed MCU movie. They went with Iron Man as their opening salvo and to be honest going back 48 years I cant remember encountering anyone who ever went "Iron who?"
  3. Legendary certainly is a success. Its been in print for 7 years and has spawned an entire line of legendary deck builder games (Alien, Predator, X-files just to name a few) with marvel legendary being their first and most popular title by far. I beg to differ when it comes to Iron Man. He s always been a top tier character of Marvel comics. even before the movies, everyone had heard of Iron man and he has had dozenss of popular comic lines over the decades.
  4. Unfortunately, virtue signaling and throwing good money after bad have been staples of marvel comics business practice for a while now. All these characters sell at numbers that used to be well below cancellation numbers when the company didn't have a thriving cinematic side to prop it up. They keep trying to reboot them and never grow the audience for them no matter how often they try. FFG would be better advised to follow the example of Upper Deck's Marvel Legendary approach and rely on the core characters to build a solid base from which to expand before trying to market 3rd and 4th tier toons
  5. No she is not one of the most popular character of any decades. Ms Marvel never gets in the top100 in sales according to comichron...neither do Squirrel Girl or Gwenpool or America Chavez or any of the new characters from the disastrous all new all different run at marvel. There are literally dozens of far better known and liked characters to choose from here.
  6. Seriously why Ms Marvel? she s at best a D-lister. With all the characters they have in the roster, they re gonna waste a pack on Kamala Khan? Whats next, Gwenpool? Squirel Girl?
  7. 200$???? are you out of your **** mind?
  8. Well I gotta say aside from AH3rd which MAY be interesting, this years gencon in flight report has got to be the most underwhelming in years...almost all the "new stuff" are extensions, some of which like mother of dragons feeling more like padding and really the only new game is basically a reskin of blue moon legend with a few gimmicks added.
  9. Well I for one certainly hope that this other the other weird card game is not their big reveal for this year cuz that would be a huge disappointment. I m quite happy with my AH2nd and with the lcg version and the "unique" card game doesn't interest me in the slightest. I m hoping they do a world of Warcraft type game with elder scroll since they have the license with Bethesda
  10. will there be a way to use the 6 print on demand packs released for the first ed?
  11. the medium base with 2 holes is for the hunting horror and 3 holes is for the riot minis
  12. The reason for the quality if the miniatures being inferior to that if their more recent products is probably due to the fact that they are using their allready existing inventory of premium Arkham miniatures that came out some years ago.
  13. So instead of doing a cool re-imagining of WHQ they do a rune age clone thigny...I have to say that so far I m pretty much underwhelmed by FFG's showing at GenCon this year
  14. Its a good enough game but we re not quite there yet...and it saddens me to say this because I was eagerly anticipating its release ever sine it was announced. I m a big fan of AH but also of a touch of evil and fortune and glory and when I first began playing the latter 2 I was thinking to myself how great it could be to combine them which is essentially what EH was in my mind. But I think they were a tad overambitious and spread to game too thinly in order to accommodate the AO custom games. As it is, I don't think its on par with even the AH base set yet so I ll continue playing AH for the time being and shelve EH until it has had some time to grow and become the great game I still believe it can be
