Which is the collectible part of this game?

The Cards or the Dice? Both?

Wolverine has apparently a common card and a super rare card. Do you use the Wolverine Dice with either the common or super rare card?

What is the difference between the Wolverine common and super rare card?

Peace

The cards are collectible.

The dice are the same for each iteration of/card for a character.

In general, the differences between rarities for a character will be the ability and possibly the limit on the number of dice for that character you can have available to purchase and the purchase price for the dice.

Check out this text file to see info for all of the cards.

You use the same dice for each rarity of card.

The difference is in the special ability text on each card. Each version of a character has a different rule that applies when that card is brought to the game.

There are usually 3 (sometimes 4) versions of each hero (individual card). They are listed as common, uncommon, rare, and super rare (I think).

Each hero/card has a different name, a differnt "cost" (in game) to get the dice into your gameplay, and has a different special ability, and possibly a different limit of the max number of dice you can bring to play.

All versions of a given hero use the same dice though (there may be 3 different versions/cards of Spiderman, but they use the same dice).

You could open a booster and get a super rare Mr. Fantastic and a Mr. Fantastic die, and use that die with any version/card/rarity of Mr. Fantastic.

For example, there is only one version of the Wolverine die. It works with the three differenct (Common, Rare, and Super Rare) Wolverine Cards. The raw character stats are the same for each card (cost to field, attack, defense, and bursts). The differences come in cost to buy, and any special abilities that are written on the different cards.

There is a twist in the rarity of dice, however.

The heroes in the starter set only have a non-common version in the booster part of the set, so their dice will come up much less frequently if you are only opening booster packs.

Granted, you could just buy another starter set and it wouldn't be an issue at all, but I think it's worth noting.
