• Batman: The Animated Series Multi-Month OP Cards!


    Here we have an alternate art Common Batgirl: Carrying the Mantle from the DC: Batman set (spoiled in the Dice Tower video), with slightly altered text - the OP card says "a different {Bat-Family} character", while the card from the set say "a non-Batgirl {Bat-Family} character". The Fellowship prize is a Flip Batman card which does something while Batman is active and you field a {Bat-Family} character (possibly Villain on the other side?), and the Competitive Prize is a Robin.

    Participation prize is an alternate art of the Rare (!!!) Harley Quinn from the upcoming Batman set, which could definitely be a meta card - 3M and while you have 2 Villains active (of which she herself is one), at the beginning of your turn you gain 1 life and your opponent loses 1. Powerful and cheap. The Fellowship prize is The Riddler which does something when your Sidekick dice roll a ?, and the Competitive Prize is a Flip The Joker that does something with Harley Quinn (it's nice to see some reciprocity for once!).

    Participation prize is a Flip Talia al Ghul, and NOT just an alternate art from the set. All 3 have been spoiled and this isn't one of them. On the side we can see, she's a 4S Villain that lets you gain 1 life when you field her if Ra's al Ghul is active. The Fellowship Prize is a Flip Catwoman, which could potentially be the Rare from the Batman set but I think is unlikely (since the art has the DC logo instead of the Batman logo for the set, implying it's an OP exclusive and not an alternate art). Can't make out much of her text but something makes your opponent lose 1 life. The Competitive Prize is a new Poison Ivy card (using the die from World's Finest), and it looks like it brings back the Token mechanic seen in Drizzt and Squirrel Girl. Can't wait to see what this one does!

    So what do you think? How hyped are you? I love that we'll have Flip OP cards, and a potentially Meta Rare card as a participation with cool artwork, and more tokens? Plus - it's Batman TAS!!!!

      I need theses cards, all of them. I grew up with that cartoon and still love it. Laughing Fish is one of my favorite episodes, I have to have it

      Sooooo excited about these. Like @flight602 I grew up with these cartoons.

      OP sets have been a little inconsistent this side of the water - so keep fingers crossed for me this isn't one that see,s to never mysteriously arrive over here

      So will the flip of Takia say when fielded if Ra's is active the opponent loses 2 life? That would be cool.

      When are these due out? With three sets, it seems good for a monthly summer event series.

      First one is April 26, then "June" and "July" for the other two.

      I've been with the game long enough to know that OP cards used to be very desirable to play with, and that competitive teams usually featured at least one or two. For awhile the cards I was getting seemed primarily interesting for the art, it is great to see playable and exciting alternatives come back. (In a completely Open format, if you're playing a Deadpool Team, the new OP Deadpool punches Cloudkill in the face. The face.) Thanks for the heads up so I know to look for these.

      I am with StrangeBrew in the fact that I am sure at least one of these will be playable and possibly competitive. I cannot wait for these as I loved the series as well.

      Love the art on these and the Young Justice art we got in the Archer OP kit.
