In case you heard about the recent layoffs and were worried, ICv2 has gotten a statement about the future from Upper Deck, and it sounds promising. Here is the money quote:

February 10, 2010

Check this out. In a brilliant design decision, the developers of the Marvel Superstars Trading Card Game have revealed their solution for easily keeping Leader characters and Base Resources from getting mixed with your main deck.

Marvel Knights Week: First Confirmed Super-Rare Included.

February 7, 2010

Welcome to Marvel Knights Week. Make sure you check out the kick-off article on the mothership, and fire up that DVD player. We will be taking nominations for The Best Marvel Knights Movie Moment. Describe the scene and explain why you love it. Choose as many moments as you wish.

All choices will be entered into the Legendary Cardboard contest hat. One participant, chosen at random, will be honored as the winning champion of The Best Marvel Knights Movie Moment. Prizes have yet to be determined, but once the game is released it will be something good!

Before you start splattering hyperbole toward the darkness, check out the card above. See that little “S” that follows Daredevil’s card number? That means he is a Super-Rare. The first one we have ever seen close-up. What a wicked way to start the week.
