Villains Week: It Gets Worse.

March 13, 2010

If you have ever played a Trading Card Game, you know how nasty that card will be. If you have tested Marvel Superstars with proxy cards prior to its release, you may not be able to sleep at night.

Since Marvel Superstars decks will be limited to only three copies of each card, Doom’s Power Grab will really hurt. Since missing a drop crushes momentum drastically, it may be fatal.

We shall see.


Villains Week: The Most Beautiful Splash.

March 12, 2010

What a wonderful way to end a truly terrifying week. Madame Mystique. I must admit that this particular photograph is one of the best images I have ever seen from the X-Men films, and we can all agree that her ability is pure dynamite for future toolboxing in the Marvel Superstars Trading Card Game. Having this seductive shapeshifter pop up on the mothership gives us a new sense of possibility for the future. We are crossing our fingers harder than ever for the release of the game, especially with such spectacular cerulean skin calling us toward the Villains team.

Simply gorgeous.


Villains Week: Evil Goodness.

March 7, 2010

Just in case you have not been exposed to the ultimate evil in the Marvel Superstars Trading Card Game, that is The End of Days.  It was fully revealed Friday in our latest article on the mothership.  It is a super-rare, and it is very viable in the game.

We have been playing Marvel Superstars for the past couple days with printed proxies.  We know, for certain, that it will be possible to pop 8 resources to clear the board.  In honor of The End of Days, we hereby post all the Villains cards heretofore revealed.  Happy Sunday!


Villain of the Week: Dr. Doom.

September 24, 2009


When it comes to plotting evil, one dude rules. He is Doom. Victor’s upcoming appearance in the Marvel Superstars Trading Card Game will surely involve sick schemes to completely control each battle. Since his middle name in the Marvel movie mythos is “Thwart”, I expect he will deny your opponent the ability to execute any given gameplan. If this is actually the case, defeating Doom will demand some serious muscle.


Busting big beats early and often may be the best antidote for the Doom archetype. Keeping him from getting his mode on should allow a path to victory that circumvents the diabolical designs. Although we have no evidence to support the official strategy on either side of this evil, we are certain that the Marvel Superstars competition will be fierce when this bad guy drops.

Hang on tight, the mask will be removed in a matter of months.



Villain of the Week: Blackheart.

September 10, 2009


As the days march on toward the debut of the Marvel Superstars Trading Card Game in February, we continue to groove on the guessing game. Each week until arrival there will be one Villain chosen for our showcase. Today we are going dark.


Blackheart is the main bad guy in the Ghost Rider movie. He has a handful of henchmen and a whole host of demons for support. He may actually be chosen as one of the Leader characters on the Villains team.


When it comes to strategy, Blackheart could punish opponents for making weak decisions. Or he might bring out a swarm of smaller characters to serve as his minions. Whichever way he goes in Marvel Superstars, his devilish grin would be a sight to behold.
