So I have my storage solution sorted, especially for the dice. Though I played my first real serious games yesterday, where after each game I tweaked my team. I originally had all the cards sorted by number. I found that really didn't work. I now have them sorted out in their character sets, and grouped in energy types.
How is everyone else sorting and sorting their cards? What is working for you?

Alphabetical order. Easiest for quickly finding what I want.

Ditto to alphabetical order. Then I have them by rarity's. For example, Black Widow is in the "B's" and her Super rare is the first of the 3 cards I see then the Rare then the common. I have mine in a 4 pocket ultra pro. I have lots of doubles, so I keep 2 copies per card per sleeve. My teams are sleeved in the binder. I have 4 teams made, actually my 3 kids have their three teams and I have mine. they are all sleeved in different color sleeves. All my Super Rares and Rares are in Red and Orange (i don't have yellow, yet) sleeves respectively.

I sort by sets and the sets are alphabetical, as are the dice.

Alphabetical too but I sleeve each rarity of card differently. Easy to find the rares if they are in yellow sleeves.

I tried by collector number originally, but found it a pain too.
Now I've sorted:
starter set characters,
bolt energy characters,
fist energy
mask energy
shield energy

I sort the characters alphabetically within each category, then order them by rarity after that.

The only reason I kept the starter characters separate is because they have four cards each, so in a 9 card binder, I have two starter characters per page, and the other pages have 3 characters per page.

I sorted them in teams first (Xmen, Avengers, no affiliation, Villains), then alphabetically.

I grouped all of the characters together last night and sorted them according to abilities:

WA: While Active (Nick Fury)
A: Attack bonus (Phoenix)
WB: When blocked bonus (Nightcrawler)
B: Blocking bonus (Beast)
DD: Direct Damage (Mjolner)
C: Control/Copy (Rogue)
E: Dice Engine (Gambit)

Some characters give the same sort of ability no matter what iteration of their card (common, uncommon, rare, etc). Some do not. So I made a stack of characters who have abilities that change traits listed above.

I have mine in a 3x3 binder alphabetically by character then by rarity. So for the most part each character has a row with their common, uncommon, and rare. The starter characters have 4 cards though, so they end up taking up 2 rows.

I sorted them by # that itself sorts them by rarity and alphabetically. I have a card search DB so when I make a team I can look it up that way but seeing how the entire set is about 11 pages of cards no biggie looking through my binder

i don't have them sorted. but i put each set of cards (like black widow, gg, whatever) and their corresponding dice in a plastic baggie. so i basically have a toolbox with 30 or so plastic bags(i have a complete set) and then i can just find the baggie i want and pull the card and dice i need for it. it is a bit harder to find initially but then having them together like that makes it really easy to use them once you do and to put them away as i will keep the baggies i am using in a separate compartment so that way i can just put everything back in seconds.

My cards are group alphabetically. My hero dice are all tossed in one bucket and fished out with tweezers.

The only way cards should be sorted, in order of first appearances.
