I own both Marvel and Aliens versions of Legendary and for me the Aliens ruleset seems more compelling. Stuff like
- full co-op
- the division of the deck so that higher level threats are deeper
- the ability to support other players by sharing your cards on their turn
...and more

I didn't get the full bench of expansions for Marvel Legendary but did any of the expansions change the rules or game elements to be more like the Aliens ruleset? There are a lot of expansions at this point so I'm having a hard time understanding if any of them really streamline the game or not. Thanks much in advance for opinions!

Nope. I think it's exclusive to the Encounters line.

There is a part in the back of the Aliens rule book that allows for some crossover, but it doesn't actually change the rules of the Marvel game. The standard rules for each game are stand alone rules.

To me, the way to do it, and yet keep it seperate from the regular Marvel releases is to make the Encounters set MCU specific. So it's the movie/tv versions of all of the characters and events.

I've been trying to brainstorm the following:

Avengers with Cap, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor
Age of Ultron with Iron Man (including Hulkbuster), Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, Hawkeye
Dark World with Thor, Loki, Odin, Sif
Winter Soldier with Super Soldier Cap, Black Widow, Fury, Falcon

It would work!

EDIT: Sadly, though, I'm guessing Upper Deck doesn't have the rights to do that. The studio is a whole different entity.

I don't know about the game license, but they do currently make trading cards for the movies.
