This new challenge has a Focus on bystanders.

And need to rescue them all (not really just beat the master-mind as usual)

The setup for 2 players (add as you like if you have more players)

The mastermind will be Mr. Sinister
The villan are Maraudeurs and Limbo
The henchman are spider infected
The scheme is Midtown Bank Robbery

There heroes are
Black Widow
Jean Grey
Angel
Elsa Bloodstone
Spider-Gwen


Note: all the cards are centered on Bystanders !!! but the cumulative effects of the scheme, the spider infected and the marauder make this scenarion (IMHO) very difficult. Try it out, and post here how well (or bad) it went !

Do you mean all the bystanders in the bystander deck? If yes, is that including all the 'new' bystanders (we play with all the bystanders from all the sets mixed together) or a counted number?

When Black Widow starts hitting for 39 every turn, it probably won't be as difficult.

Yeah... I mean to be honest, as a solo challenge it's insanely easy...

As a 2 player challenge I don't think it's that difficult either. Since we're talking about the hardship of the job I'm assuming full co-op so again, widow will eventually let you fully explode (and covert operations isn't the rare, there are 3 copies of it)

Not only the bystander issue, but Widow + Jean have a huge focus of covert cards in general. Angel has a very good common one too. You're easily going to have more than enough combos, KO your starting cards and... you know... completely ignore Mr.Sinister's master strikes.

Also, correct me if I'm wrong here, but with so many bystanders being taken out, aren't you likely to run out of bystanders thus making Mr.Sinister even *less* of a threat since he can't use his mastermind or tactics to get bystanders and thus stay at 8?

its more a joke about pokemon go

catch them all !

but there its rescue them all.

you could try this alternate goald:

Empty the bystander deck before the mastermind wins.
the player with the most bystander in thier victory pile wins

Use as many bystander as your like (for difficulty setting )
