So has anyone else noticed that Elsa has a different SHIELD icon than the SHIELD characters in the Base Set?

Hers has an emblem in its center and the base set just has the eagle.

Yes, I did notice. I wondered about that. Can't see that it would affect gameplay. I'm guessing it's a branding edict handed down from Marvel?

Hang on even on her own card 'Defend the SHIELD Wall' it shows the older emblem. That's weird. So weird.

Hadn't noticed that, but I can see why. If they didn't, they might have people thinking it only applied to Elsa Bloodstone cards (or other future cards with the new symbol) and not the SHIELD cards with the old symbol.

On the other hand it does raise a little question over whether her own cards activate that power (I'm presuming they do).

Or if Nick Fury interacts with hers

In the rules for each expansion they show and explain the background for any new team affiliation icons. If they didn't call out Elsa there, it's safe to assume she's still SHIELD.

You are correct. I got an answer to this question from the creators on their Upperdeck FB page.

Okay guys.

I must be going crazy.

Looking at my cards and comparing the SHIELD icon Nick Fury has vs the one Elsa has are EXACTLY the same to me!!

What are you guys talking about?!

There are vertical stripes inside Elsa's SHIELD icon.

If it bothers people so much, they could just sharpy in the stripes with a marker
