So I was dropping a duece and reading going threw my binder to look at cards for combos and I was reading Wolverine, looking at the card... Saw burst symbols on level 2 and 3. Then read all of his cards and was like WTF, where is the burst effect. I was so curious to check his dice, I luckily had a ninja wipe and flushed. Cleaned hands of course, then went to my dice box and saw they too had burst symbols.

I can only think, in the expansion, the new Wolverine card(s) will have a burst effect. That *if* WizKids thought that far ahead.

I'm guessing this:

"The Phoenix Force Grand Prize is a special card unique to this storyline Organized Play Program, and includes a unique special die as well! The monthly competitive prizes feature alternate artwork (selected specifically from the AvX series from Marvel Comics) that corresponds to characters (and dice!) from the AvX base set, and each of these alternate art competitive prizes also features new abilities for its corresponding character as well! Last and certainly not least, the monthly participation prizes are Basic Action Cards that feature all-new effects!" (emphasis mine)

There may have been effects on one of the cards but it was removed after the dice were already in manufacturing.

This was seen in Quarriors on occasion. Not all versions will use all the burst options on each die they are just option for the design team to use if the want. But you can't add the burst later (without making a new die) so it might go unused on occasion.

In the case of wolverine it probably is a good indication that there will be more card versions of him for these dice either in le form or in uncanny xmen......or both.

I am guessing insurance for the future if they ever want to do an ability of the burst.

OR.

Maybe they have expansions planned that will use the same wolverine die and include new wolverine cards.

That's quite an uncanny prediction.

Feels like design space. These dice will be used again in some cases I would guess. Having the * there just allows them the flexibility to do something down the road.
