What should FFG do about allies as heroes and vice versa?

Yep.  Confirmed in the livestream.  The plan is not to let an existing signature ally or nemesis prevent them from releasing a character or villain.  So, yes, if you play Spider-Woman and Captain Marvel together, the Spider-Woman ally can only be used as a resource card.

unless you don't respect the unique character rule.

With this news, alongside Kate Bishop being a Leadership Ally, Mockingbird is looking more and more likely as Clint’s signature Ally.

His wiki page also lists Silver Sable and Deadpool as allies in the comics, so those are always possible (and wouldn’t nix a basic ally in the process)

Not only did they make a hero from a signature ally, they also made her signature ally (peter) an existing hero. Big oof from FFG.

There’s a spoiler floating around of the Spider-Man ally. He seems to be in her prebuilt deck but isn’t actually in her kit.

Spider-Man isn’t her signature ally. He’s a Justice Card.

Even if he was, it wouldn’t be a problem- it’s just a restriction. Restrictions are good, because they create unique challenges. It’s like some of you want everything as easy as possible...

This was definitely the correct decision- the rules are specifically written to account for the existence of multiple versions of the same character. This creates unique deck building challenges that you can either just accept or attempt to mitigate. The card will almost never be totally useless in hand (because you will rarely have a hand of just resources).

An article in another language has a picture of a side-scheme with Hawkeye and Mockingbird in the art. Can't read most of the card (it's behind another card), but I'm assuming it's got to be Hawkeye's nemesis side scheme, and it would further implicate Bobbi as his signature Ally.

It is in the second image on this page: http://www.fantasyflightgames.es/juegos/articulo/marvel_champions/la_tirania_de_craneo_rojo

I’d post the image but I’m on mobile and can’t get the “copy link location” function to work. I’ll edit it in later.

Also, several non English cards were posted in the Facebook group, along with translations, including Spider-Man ally, Red Skull 1 and Taskmaster 1. Also a White Tiger Ally Card in Taskmaster’s Deck which implies she may act as a Scenario reward for the campaign.

On another look, his nemesis is 100% Crossfire. Somebody had suggested that Barney also had a similar color scheme as Trickshot, but the crosshair over Clint and Bobbi has gotta be Crossfire.

I'm okay with that. The clash of hero and ally is very situational anyway.

However, when it's your game, at your own table, if you feel you're being cheated out of a potential ally there's nothing to stop you swapping the ally card out (even if its a signature) for another card of your choice in this situation.  Nobody's going to call the rules police.
