Vs. System Love is in the air.


This looks like a blast. Head on over to tcgplayer and jump in!

And, if you need some ideas for the perfect couple, my article from two years ago can help:

Something has happened to love. Over the course of history, it’s gotten distilled. Sanskrit has 96 words for love; ancient Persian has 80; Greek has 3; and English has only 1. Modern man continues to experience an infinite variety of emotional states, but a single 4-letter word has taken them all upon its back.


That is a heavy responsibility for such a little word. Love is strong; it does not shy away from the challenge. Love is alive today in every place on Earth. We can even find it flourishing in Vs. System.


Vs. System is a trading card game blueprint that builds its walls with myth. Comic book superheroes provide the most powerful and longest-lasting myths of history’s Modern Age. Our pulp-based heroes and villains do not command our worship, but they do command our attention.


If we want to remember what it was like to honor myths as deities and partners, we simply need to look to Ancient Greece. During that age, people didn’t just play on the kitchen table with cardboard representations of their heroes—they interacted with them directly.


Although we have, for the most part, lost our belief in the power of mythological gods and goddesses, we still derive hours of entertainment from our modern imaginary superheroes—and they still get frisky when it comes to love. Bizarre love triangles and crazy couplings abound in both the Marvel and DC Comic universes.


Love fits in many different places, and it is not only about romance. Sanskrit teaches us a wide variety of possibilities: love for all people, love for the planet itself, and love for many things that we take for granted today. Vs. System makes us all brothers in arms, even if our weapons are merely printed on paper.





Love is in the air, breathe in as much as you possibly can.
