Please, Please, Oh Please!!!!!

Maybe this is just a rant or maybe it's a plea. This is for you to decide. I am a massive fan in London of Dice Masters and have all common and uncommon of both Marvel sets and the new DC set. Also can't wait for the new Age of Ultron set and the two further sets coming later in the year.
But what I am wanting to know, why is there characters being repeated set after set? I do like Captain America, Iron man, Spider-Man and Wolverine, but do we need these characters over and over again? I saw a video of the opening of the Age of Ultron starter set and seven of the eight characters have been available in one if not two of the previous sets. I mean I will still buy it as there is so much that is being added all the time that it is hard to resist.
Also what would be good is a few generic characters. In the Age of Ultron set there appears to be the characters Ultron-bot and SHIELD agent. Excellent as this allows me to create scenarios and games in which there can be flood or wave enemies which characters must survive. I understand there is side kick dice for this but it is good to have someone a little more powerful to play with. Finding it hard to play against other collectors, I therefore have to get creative with storylines. This I may share in further rants and such.

Also is there a reason why there is no Sue Storm? Is there something going on with Marvel/Disney and Fox? I hear rumours but don't know the actual reason. Just bugging me I have three other members of the FF but not her, but that is me being the obsessive collector I am.

Also I am very much looking forward to the new DC war of light set coming out. Again just a little worried that they will be putting out a lot of repeat characters with colour of dice only being the difference. Please prove me wrong. Just for my birthday, shutting my eyes and wishing so hard. New characters and a few more generic characters. Pretty please.

P.S. loving the O.P. cards.

    Regarding repeat characters:

    $$$. Each Starter Set is an opportunity to start fresh into Dice Masters. People who are coming in for the first time will more than likely want familiar characters. Marvel has a few definitely bankable characters, particularly to people who are invested in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The AoU Starter, in particular, is intended to tie in directly to the movie, so you see characters that were featured in the movie.

    I actually like that they changed up the dice for the repeat characters, it opens up more play space.

    Thanks for the reply and yeah I get it, just needed to let off steam. I understand that it is based around the movie, hence guardians of the galaxy. Ah well, I still will get it as it is such a great game. And thank you for the links.
