Added some more to mix in more with the Secret Wars set.

These are an update to the proxy Bystander method described here:
Initial Post
Update#1
Update#3
Update#4
Hidden Witness & Human Shield Proxies


I now run a 80 card Bystander stack.
40 Neutral (30 plus 10 from Villains)
13 Negative (1 of each from here and the above links)
27 Positive (1 of each from here and the above links plus 1 "Stan Lee" promo and one each from each big expansion)

This maintains a good balance of probability of drawing them:
Neutral : 50%
Negative: 16%
Positive: 34%

EDIT: Added "Helicopter Pilot" Bystander that uses mechanics from Secret Wars Volume 2.

Positive Bystanders:




Negative Bystanders:




Positive/Negative Bystanders:

UPDATE:

Added the Helicopter Pilot Bystander.

Using the Patrol mechanic from Secret Wars Volume 2 we can create location based themed Bystanders to give a Positive or Negative effect depending on the Patrol.

The Patrol Helicopter is my favorite of this bunch.

I don't like the ones that deal with multi-class because it's such a small portion of heroes right now that have that trait.

I don't get the Photographer's theme either and I think it asks a bit much to stop the game to look through other players' victory piles to find that perfect bystander effect to copy.

The rest are good enough, but not as awesome as that pilot!

I really like your stuff.
But wouldn't Cult Leader be more thematic when he captures (instead Bystanders) Hidden Witnesses or Human Shields ?

[yes I know, by the time you created it, those keywords were not yet available, just an idea for an update]

Thank you

The thinking behind the Cult Leader was that he would entice the Bystanders in willingly with his "sweet talk" as opposed to forcefully grabbing them.

There are some Hidden Witness, Human Shields Bystanders here.
And some Henchmen use them here.

But I'll see if there is something else that may fit.....
