So I'm building a custom small Legendary set for my dad, who doesn't want to buy 5 expansions to get his 5 favorite characters for a game he plays at most once a month. So I'm building my own versions of Dr. Strange, Daredevil, Silver Surfer, and ROM. The fifth hero is going to be a set of Micronauts Sidekicks, as Dad loved the Micronauts and doesn't have Sidekicks.

A number of you have mentioned a desire to someday have Micronaut cards, but the problem is I know NOTHING about the Micronauts. So what I'm asking is, what Micronauts are most important? What is cool about them? Card ideas?

Now here's the thing. This set is a special set I'm only making for my dad, and won't be posting them publicly. However, anyone who helps me on this thread I will send a file with ROM and the Micronauts at their request.

Now, the one thematic link between all of these cards is a keyword my dad and I came up with: Portal. Portal states, "When you discard ths card you may place it in another player's discard pile," followed by the ability you get for Portalling the cards. It is similar to Savior like that. Strange, the Surfer, ROM, and the Micronauts will all use Portal.

So, who the heck are the Micronauts??

You've read the Wikipedia article?

I recall enjoying Vol. 1 issues #35 (the origin of the Microverse!) and #37 (guest starring Nightcrawler!) when I was a young lad, but I don't remember much about them.

I would say you want Arcturus Rann, Marionette, Bug, Acroyear, Devil, Fireflyte, and Biotron. Those are the ones I remember. Maybe Nanotron and Microtron.

Thanks Ed! I've read the Wikipedia page, I just wasn't able to glean most important characters from that.
