      Shriek and Doppelganger look great! Can't wait to see some of those back cards. Especially Spider-Man and Carnage.

      Was hoping for an Iron Fist - The Immortal reprint.

      Great, now we have 2 Dwizes. All control meta incoming.

      WW still shuts down DWiz and Shriek ("ignore all when fielded abilities").

      If you saw the current meta from Origins, the competitive scene could use some control to stop all the Guy Gardners.

      Except Guy will be rotated out. We'll be going into a meta with 2 efficient blank effects that are both in bolt, with a card that burns based on bolt, and no truly hyper aggressive cards. The upside is no ring. But Darkseid adds so much churn that the slow-ish burn deck seems really viable.

      Guy and Dwiz are likely going to rotate at the same time. Rotation is only annual. We're stuck with WoL for the rest of the year.

      Impressed! A low to medium purchase curve, interesting abilities, a new global for Sidekick teams, new dice and stats for some characters who have already appeared in past sets, overall low fielding costs, and the return of Spider-Man's great AvX stats. And tons of Mark Bagley art, happy about that. Best team pack so far, very excited!

      Right?! So glad they were able to get the early 90s art from Marvel for these. It really makes the set so much better.

      Yeah I concur. I was going to probably pass on this, but after seeing all this sick Bagley art i'm totally game (and you know, for some Iron Fist die, but the art is a bigger deal for me a filthy pleb).

      My mate just pointed out that the Villains are using the Red V symbol...

      I love that one of the Venoms has the spidey friends affiliation. I am really excited for this team pack!

      Wait, so Shriek doesn't target the die, just makes you choose an opposing character card? That means it can negate unfielded characters or get around Raven, Elektra and the like. I so want this pack now.

      I thought the same thing but this one is better. Has better stats and is not an adventurer. Better in some ways and worse in other.

      Also. This one will be legal in PRIME format.

      Seeing as Shriek also targets the Character card there is no way to stop someone from targeting it, I don't think anyhow. Nothing protects the cards from abilities only the dice in the field correct?

      I think Bard protects cards as well as dice, so there is always that.

      Points of interest:

      * 5x 3-cost

      * 14x 4-cost

      * 5x 5-cost

      * Captain America is the highest fielding cost at 1-2-2, followed by Iron Fist at 0-1-2. All 6 others are 0-1-1.

      I wish they would have made Venom Spider Friends and Villains on all cards, but I am glad that he has at least 1 Spider Friends affiliation. Also, that card should be subtitled Lethal Protector.

      Shriek can turn off WW before WW hits the field. WW will need to be purchased by turn 2 (using RHCB) and at best could be fielded turn 3. Shriek can be bought and fielded by turn 2 (using RHCB on turn 1, if you go second).

      Use a taunt on a BAC and have two characters with Deadly (or an with an A value 3+) or just take the damage by letting him through.

      Buh-bye Shriek....

      I'm just happy to see some Mark Bagley art on some cards. Still one of my favorite Spidey artists
