So happy that my local shop got these in, and I was one of the early preorders, so I made the cut due to short shipments.

The cards were warped, but fixable... certainly with protectors. Die overall were good as well.

I did like that between my starter and booster I got a great mix of cards and plenty, plenty of die. I was worried of only getting 1 or 2 die for a character, but that was not the case at all.

My shop is having a demo weekend, so plan on getting there to learn more of the rules and combos.

My only thematic question is that it looks like Thors hammer and caps shield are items that everyone can use. I am not sure how I feel about that yet...

Otherwise, love it!

Anyone can hold Cap's shield. Throwing it as well as he does is another matter. No one should be able to pick up, (much less USE) Mjolnir.

It's anti-thematic stuff like this that I hated about the DC Deck Building Game.

Cap's Shield and Mjolnir are iconic within the Marvel universe, which I'm sure you already know. If they're going to put these badass items in the game, why keep out one of the most popular? There are a lot of new fans of marvel that aren't privy to it all. Seems like a good idea to me.

Yea, I agree that it does take a little away however not enough that I am not able to enjoy the game. Would have liked to see it worded something along the lines of when using the shield any Captain America character gets +1A and plus +1D or something along those lines. Would work with Thor's hammer and any other item they decide to use down the road. With that being said I am not going to let something this small throw off how I will enjoy the game. But I do agree it does bring a small amount of What The...to the game.

They are not ICONIC if you change them.

It should really be that those cards can only be taken if you have a card for the associated character. I appreciate what they tried to do, but it is a bit jarring.

Something like that would be a good house rule.

Or perhaps it cost less to purchase the die if you have the associated Character?

Well, if we're quibbling details, technically Captain American and Hulk have both held Mjolnir at different points. Cap, being "worthy" has actually held it on multiple occasions.

IIRC, Hulk had to lift up a mountain attached to it to lift Mjolnir, but technically still did it.

Personally I will not use any equipment unless I have the appropriate character in my roster that game. So Thor AND Mjolnir can be used together.

I'm a sucker for theme and will hopefully get my players to agree to a house ruling.
