-There are two sizes of cards as part of the game.
What are their dimensions in millimetres?

-Beyond the base game, what are the names of the
available expansions?

-I dislike the card art for the "Weakness" card
in the base set. Do subsequent set(s) have
replacement ones for weakness? Which set(s)
have this, if any?

1. The main cards are the standard size 63x89. The character cards are close to 75x101.

2. The only available expansion is a stand alone expansion "Heroes Unite". The first real expansion "Crisis" is slated for third quarter, and another stand alone, "Forever Evil" is coming fourth quarter. There is also a "Batman vs Joker" mini game coming out some time in between them.

3. And yes all the art from the cards, including the "weakness" cards are different in the sets. The "weakness" cards in "Heroes Unite" are of Superboy getting hit with a Kryptonite beam.

I don't like the Weakness card art, either. It is really creepy.

-Will "Forever Evil" have yet another variety of weakness cards?

-Is Superboy a younger Superman, or are they different heroes?

Ahem (puts on his comic geek hat), bare in mind I don't know if anything's change in the last decade with DC, but Superboy is/was a clone grown from Superman's DNA around the time Superman was killed by Doomsday.

It seems like all the different sets will have different artwork for the main cards. So I think we can expect new punch, vulnerability, kick, and weakness cards in "Forever Evil". But they will probably be a villain version, so weakness cards might have a hero like Superman on them.

On another note, I prefer the punch, vulnerability, and kick cards from the main set. The "Heroes Unite" set is a little grittier and a little bloodier than he base set.

Except for the Superboy of the 1960's and later who was the younger version of Superman (see many of the issues of Adventure Comics, and Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes, for example).

I haven't been following the new 52's Superboy, but I thought he's from alternative universe?

I mix and match the starter cards so I'll have a Batman family (Batman punch, Batgirl vulnerability, Nightwing Kicks, Joker Weakness)
