I like that five of the fourteen new heroes are female. I suspect that this set has the highest percentage of female heroes and it is the only set with a female mastermind.

I like that there are two aliens in this set that don't fit into any human racial category.

I am hoping that future sets will continue to match the demographic diversity of this expansion.

However, in the all the Legendary games, we only have a single nonwhite human mastermind and a single female mastermind.

Some suggestions I have for masterminds are:
Scarlet Witch
White Queen/ Emma Frost
Enchantress
The Shi'ar Empress, Lilandra Neramani

I cannot think of some potentially good chooses for a non-white human mastermind. Does anyone have some good ideas?

Also, am i wrong in thinking that there are no Hispanic or Asian heroes in this game so far? I think that there should be at least a few of each.

Miles Morales is in Secret Wars.

Shang Chi is on the cover for Secret Wars Volume 2 - the theory is he will be a playable hero.

Lady Deathstrike is a good idea for an Asian female mastermind (there are customs of her already done here on BGG).

The custom masterminds I've made:

Typhoid Mary
Crane Mother
Madame Masque
Valeria Richards
Phoenix Five (Emma + Magik are ladies)
Dark Phoenix (Jean)

Can't remember if I did any other ladies...

And I meant to do Callisto leading the Morlocks, but never got around to it.

Other possibilities =

Cassandra Nova (could be X-Men '92 MM)
Deathstrike
Hela
Death

No, that would be Paint the Town Red.
Out of 5 heroes 2 were female (Spiderwoman & Blackcat) - I believe 40% is the highest in the game thus far.
