Hey everyone! I had this cool idea recently, a bit inspired by Civil War and wanting to make more Villain cards like my Red Skull (Shameless plug: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1567591/red-skull-playable-...)

With this, please keep in mind:
- I don't have the Civil War expansion. So I have no experiance playing Divided Heroes.
- I wanted both halves to be good enough on their own, so you could essentially ignore the other half (for custom stories and whatnot. After all, why would Dr. Connors help the Sinister Six??)
- I haven't finalized the art. For now, I'd personally prefer matching art vs disjointed art styles. And this is to make sure the card's work first. I'll gladly take any art suggestions!! Especially for the Rare!!!

To work well with Spidey, I aimed to make the commons be 2 cost.





Let me know what you guys think!!!

This is a damn great divided card, and not overly complex, but also not simple.

I've only had a quick look at it, but I easily catch the idea behind them, and must say bravo sir/madam!!

Thanks!! I've been trying to balance his cards for weeks now, but I think I'm really happy with this set!

Your concept is dynamite. Bravo!

I have couple things to nitpick about, however.

1) You could easily shorten your first common's names to simply Hurt and Heal.

2) They'd look better with more art. I suspect you just ran out of time or couldn't find some images that pleased you.

3) The first three cards' sizes should be changed. Actual divided cards have two cards in the amount of space of a normal one.

4) I'd give the Rare a small base Recruit and Attack for those unusual occasions where it comes out before the commons or uncommon cards do and someone could be stuck with a seven cost card that does almost nothing for him/her. Also, if it comes out before the other wound-giving cards get played again (Rogue's Copy Powers could do this easily), the card would give zero Recruit or Attack then, too. Recall that Ghost Rider's rare gives a base three Attack if there are no villains to KO from stacks.

To repeat myself, the concept behind the cards is fantastic. These should issues should be easy to fix (I can't make cards so I'm not sure).

You're right, I could. Not sure which one I like more.

Well, like I said in the intro, I wanted to see what everyone thought of the abilities. So I posted this as soon as I could. Haven't found consistent art I like yet, but I will update when I do!

I thought so to, so I tested it by uploading it (with the Legedit bleed added) to CowCow and ArtsCow (where I normally print from) and it fit really well!

You are absolutely right. What would you think is fair? 2 for both? 3?

Thanks for all the feedback! I'll work harder on finding images and see what I can do about the card sizes!

I think starting with 3 for each would make sense. It's a number that should be subject to change and play-testing.

i really like this one. Good job! Also great use of the divided mechanic. Unlike most of the ones in the actual set, this one fits perfectly.

Updated the Rare! Seeing as you can send all the Wounds/Bindings back for one big attack, I think 3 of each works best for it to be useful when you haven't been able to KO any Wounds or Bindings. Definitely play-testing is needed tho!

And thanks, Daniel! I thought the idea was too good to pass up!

Lizard is definitely an ideal candidate for divided cards, as for most of the characters' lives one aided Spider-Man and the other wanted to eat him or something like that.

Maybe Legion (Professor X's insane son) would be a good choice, too, as he had multiple personalities with different powers and possibly goals, but Lizard is far more important to the Marvel universe. There are probably 20 X-Men foes that should be made cards before Legion.
