Here's hoping that Galactus will represent a new take on masterminds, he's too nuts to just be 12 attack. I think he may be best done as a scheme with his heralds being the mm tactics, but we shall see.

Would be interesting if he couldn't be defeated through normal means. Come on the guy is an abstract, a force of nature with power that has no limits. One thought for a alternate method for defeating the world eater could be acquiring the ultimate nullifier, (meeting the cards requirements before it is played). I'm hoping the scheme will have a sorta time bomb effect. When the last twist is played "boom" world gets eaten. Schemes twists could also turn heroes from the hq or players hands into heralds (similar to the skrull invasion scenario).

Added link to Tom Vasel's tweet of what I presume is the cover of the expansion to the first post.

Looks great! But no sign of a fifth hero (Silver Surfer or She-Hulk?) on the packaging has me a little sad.

October can't get here soon enough!

Even though I have not yet received nor played the Dark City expansion, I cannot wait for this one.
Unlike most other players I would be fine with it just featuring the Fantastic Four as heroes. Why? Mainly because it gives us a chance at a cool hero in the expansions after this one, without getting repeats too fast.
I know there are still a lot of heroes out there within the Marvel universe, but I strongly believe that bigger names like "Silver Surfer" will be better sellers than an expansion with heroes like "Wonder Man", "Captain Britain" or "Skaar" as main character.
That being said, I definitely wouldn't mind getting Silver Surfer as a hero in this set and I wouldn't even mind getting new versions of already present heroes (like we did with Wolverine), but I do feel that the game will lose some of it's fans when new expansions dive into repeats too fast.

I don't want to spoil the party for everyone, but 100 cards (5 new heroes to add to the existing 32 and another villein to add to the existing 9, all this for 20$ seems a bit steep...

Unless it had some game altering mechanic we haven't heard about yet, i'll pass this one.

I'll pick it up for around $14 online, I figure. Besides that, I love this game too much to not get in on this.

The current thought is 5 heroes, 2 schemes, 2 masterminds, a villain group and a henchmen group.

100 cards.

Lol, probably even including the awful we just took bad screendumps from the movies and put those on cards cause we don't care anymore about the artwork and don't want to keep paying artist to do original artwork for this game expansion.

I would pay real money for a GLA expansion. Mr. Immortal never takes wounds, Grasshopper is just a bunch play-and-trash cards...

Oh heavens no. Squirrel Girl wins the game, renders the Mastermind unusable for any and all further gaming sessions, and may just set the entire game box on fire.

I believe that silver surfer will be a hero, but can be used in the villain deck similar to how jean grey is used as the goblin queen.

And the time starts again where information starts to leak I added the info Adam posted in another thread. As he also pointed out, the number of cards confirmed by the store listing comes to 96, so there will probably be 4 new Schemes.

Be interested to see who the second Mastermind and villain group are. The Frightful Four make the most sense as a villain group, but the Wizard doesn't seem big enough to be a mastermind and there isn't another FF big villain who makes sense as an "always leads" for them. Annihilus would likely be saved for the cosmic expansion given the events of Annihilation. One dark horse Id love to see is Namor as the mastermind, but I doubt they'll go that way.

I'm hoping Silver Surfer will be a master mind / villain AND a super hero.
