X-Men Week: To Beat, To Bounce, or To Swarm?

February 19, 2010

When talking X-Men strategy in the Marvel Superstars Trading Card Game, there are three major themes.  Wolverine is all about beating the enemy to a bloody pulp while healing your own wounds.  Storm is bouncy, and Professor X swarms the board like an all ages punk show with a five dollar cover.  Which is your style?

Whether you beat, bounce, or swarm, it looks like the rest of the team will be ready to prop you up. Take a look at this Cyclops.  It is obviously tailor-made for the X-babies low-cost swarm theme. It also gives any other character-based deck a good kick in the pants.

Fill my hand with supporters? Yes please. Especially when the Weather Witch is fixing to bounce the other side to high heaven.

Oh my, that is strong. And, just in case you like the sound of bouncy board control but want to run the Professor or Wolverine leader, you got this little rain dance at your disposal.

The X-men are not playing nice in Marvel Superstars. Whichever direction you take them, they are taking no prisoners.  Enemy beware.  These mutants are swinging every which way but loose.

  1. Can I have to Leaders in the table? If not, how can Prof X and Storm work together?


    • They will both have Supporter character cards that can help the other’s Leader.
