Legendary Obscurity Reinvented.

August 30, 2009


The stories of superheroes that we tell each other from the pages of the comic books are passed on as the modern myths of our time through their film adaptations. Celluloid incarnations of our favorite characters and storylines spread the word far and wide. What were once obscure tales on thin paper pages have become celebrated legends of the silver screen.

Movies like Elektra may not have captured the collective attention to the same degree as some of her more well-known superpowered conterparts, but she will probably receive a big boost in popularity as a member of the Marvel Knights team in the upcoming Marvel Superstars Trading Card Game. When the rosters are revealed at the beginning of 2010, the Villains team might actually include her cinematic rival Tattoo.


We do not know what characters will be included, but Tattoo’s ability to manifest living animals from the drawings on his body might end up fulfilling many of my own personal trading card game wishes.

Tattoo could search the deck for smaller character cards and put them into play. That would take his obscure legend and reinvent it within a Marvel Superstars swarm strategy. Will it actually happen? Only time will tell.
