I'll guess the same thing I guessed on the other board.

5 Heroes (Human Torch, Invisible Woman, The Thing, Mr. Fantastic and the Silver Surfer) 70 cards

2 Masterminds (Galactus and Mole Man) 10 cards

1 Villain group (Heralds) 8 cards

1 Henchmen group (Mole People) 10 cards

2 Schemes (one themed to each Mastermind)

I mostly agree with Matt. I'm convinced Silver Surfer will be a hero, so 5 heroes, not 4.

I'm less sure about the Mole Man. I can't even remember the last time I saw him in a recent comic book. He's a little old school, but he is a very iconic FF mastermind.

Black Bolt as a mastermind? When did he and the Inhumans become villains? Is this an Ultimates thing? I really only pay any attention to the 616 universe, and I'm probably a couple years behind the times at that.

I was thinking Thanos might be a possibility.

Yeah I don't know about Mole Man either... but I don't know too many other FF vilains that could be master minds.

Puppet master
Mad Thinker
Annihlus
Psycho-Man
Namor

The Frighful Four would make a good villain group...

How about M.O.D.O.K. and A.I.M. (the latter as henchmen)?

Also, MODOK apparently was involved with the one of the incarnations of the Frightful Four. http://marvel.com/universe/Frightful_Four

The Inhumans are not exactly heroes. They are a neutral party, but have been antagonistic (recently: silent war, war of kings).

I can't see Surfer as a member of the ff. If anything he should be slapped with a Defenders, Heralds, or Annihilatiors affiliation.

I was also thinking Annihilius would make a great mastermind. I agree with rucker73... The Frightful four would also make a for a great villain group. The U-foes would also be interesting since they got their powers in a similar way that the ff did.

I agree that they can be considered neutral, even self-serving perhaps, but Black Bolt and the Inhumans have fought alongside heroes more often than not. I would never consider them villains, personally, but I haven't read those two recent storylines you've referenced.

I can't see him as a villain (Heralds) though. I don't think he'll have an FF affiliation. But I can see why he'd be included (as a hero) with the FF if the focus of the expansion is on Galactus as a mastermind.

I don't think She Hulk will be one of the 5. She Hulk is too familiar with Hulk in the first set and when compare to Silver Surfer it make sense to go with the Surfer.

Also I think with the size of this expansion there will only be one Master Mind.

While I can see Silver Surfer as a hero, I can't picture him as a member of the Fantastic Four. He could, however, be unaffiliated, like, Deadpool in the core set. Two more hero options include She Hulk, and Spider-man from the Future Foundation since the position was offered to, and accepted by, Spidey after Johnny sacrificed himself to save everyone else, and has maintained that possition for a while after Johnny returned.

I agree that Silver Surfer would be an unaffiliated hero.

P.S. Future Foundation is the best Marvel comic in years. It's a must-read. But it's a little too cutting edge for Legendary.

I would think maybe the Silver Surfer being a herald in this game and then later released as a hero, just thinking about how many cards this licence could produce makes my head hurt!!

I can't believe no one has mentioned the obvious choice they are going to go with as the fifth hero. It is not going to be She Hulk. It is not going to be the Silver Surfer. It is obviously going to be Wolverine. Dark City set a precedent of releasing another Wolverine and I am going to be disappointed Brenner if you don't release another release another Wolverine with the Fantastic Five. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WolverinePublicit...

Wouldn't the U-Foes be a prime candidate for a FF4 Villain Group?

They are four (2 of each...perfect!) and they got their powers trying to be the Fantastic Four...

Check out the pic once it gets approved of Silver Surfer. He is unaffiliated.

Well after having my uploads of several never before seen cards decline 3 times, I've given up. These were spoiled cards that the community would probably love to see, no mater the "glare" but ah well I'm done trying. Pm me if you want details on the cards. I had Galactus' Mastermind cards, a silver surfer card a subterranean villan and Thing.

I can't stop wondering if the 2nd Mastermind will be another Dr Doom!
