Soon there will be high quality cardboard versions of Jessica Alba and Wesley Snipes to flip on our kitchen tables. I kid you not.
We have breaking news.
Upper Deck will release the Marvel Superstars TCG, a new game based on the Marvel Universe as envisioned by the movies, in February. This will be the first time that the movies, including Iron Man, Hulk, Fantastic Four, the X-Men Trilogy, the Blade Trilogy and others, will interact with each other in a Marvel game.
A Starter Deck will be the first release, followed a few weeks later by the Booster Packs. Approximately 300 cards will be released in the first set.
Each player chooses to become a classic Marvel hero or villain, then constructs a team to defeat the opponent.
Upper Deck will be hosting demos using a beta version of the game at Gen Con this week.
This is a shock. It is the most thrilling curveball I can imagine for the future funfest to be called the Marvel Superstars Trading Card Game. My heart just jumped out of my chest and landed on the Silver Surfer’s board, only to be grabbed by Anna Paquin and absorbed into nothingness.
What. A. Stunner.
That poignant portrait is by Taki Soma. It is owned by a collector named Guillaume, residing in France. Thanks to Marvel Masterpieces, Squirrel Girl really gets around.
I opened that comic and what did I see? Squirrel Girl herself, smiling at me.
It seems that Norman Osborn’s Dark Reign now includes the Great Lakes Avengers. Gravity has been sent back to the midwest. Does this mean even MORE Squirrel Girl next month? We sure hope so. Stay tuned for breaking news as it happens.
