Thor’s crush is one of my favorite modern pairings. Particularly since he’s so intimidated by Jennifer.


Indeed! Annoyed it’s getting interrupted by the Cosmic Thor storyline.

Earth 616

First impressions:

Good leadership ability on a character with utility and fair survival skills.

Doc is a mid ranged support with good control abilities.

Strange will want a lot of power.

Defenders crew looks good on paper. Hoping Angela is a solid beater that can tank with Strange.

Strange in Avengers. Yes please.

I think it's almost going to be worth thinking of Strange and Wong as one 7 point character, given Wong's ability to keep Strange alive, top up his Power and Strange helping to keep him around.

The Soul Gem is also an important consideration to keeping Strange powered up.

Meh. I prefer the less angsty, fitness model She Hulk, but I think a miniature based on the more current comics version was inevitable.

I do think they also want to try to avoid making too much of a "Cheese Cake" model to avoid losing their kid audience.

Did you...miss Angela and The Enchantress?

I think they could've 'gotten away' with a She-Hulk most people who were aware of She-Hulk would have recognized.

She Hulk is on the "coming soon" rumor mill for the MCU. I'm sure Marvel had a lot to say about how she should look.

Not even a rumor. They confirmed a Disney+ series for her, tentatively for 2021 (though I expect that means 2022 now).

If your talking She Hulk, Fantastic Four can't be far behind...



At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

All that "stance dancing" looks like it could be extremely fun. I'm not sure he's an amazing character, but he looks like a wonderfully designed depiction of how he should play. Really think it captures silly, fun, distracting, etc...

He can move REALLY far it turns out.

Someone got Strange and Ghost Rider early and both have some incredibly interesting Tactics cards. Ghost Rider has one where he can can revive himself when he dies by sacrificing one of your other characters. Strange also has some really interesting spells, including the ring portals which will have some interesting applications.

Earth 616

Gamenerdz has a whole bunch of items up on preorder. No dates yet, but at least we can see pricing for everything.

No real surprises. Ant-Man/Wasp is normal price for 4 models. Magneto/Toad is higher price for the terrain bases.

Construction site terrain is more reasonable then I was expecting but still wish it wasn’t so similar to the base game terrain.

Ant Man, Wasp, Ghost Rider, Doctor Strange and Wong should be hitting UK stores in next few days so should hopefully be getting them next week.

Usually Team Covenant doesn't bill until their product is in-house, and they sent my receipt for Strange/Wong, GR, and Ant-Man/Wasp, yesterday... meaning they seem on schedule.

It amazes me that this is the only Asmodee game to avoid most of their shipping/supply/distribution hell. Marvel must keep them contractually on a very short leash, as even Star Wars is treated like a trash fire comparatively.

UK stores have been having some stock issues with them receiving a lot less then they requested. This has led to some store now only taking preorders the week once they have had final numbers on what they will actually receive confirmed. Not as bad as SOIAF though!

LOL... no game in the entire industry is as bad as ASoIaF(distribution-wise, I LOVE the game itself)! I'll never forget the misery-porn that is trying to keep up with new releases.

I thought a few of those things were out already. I’ve been seeing people post their painted copies on the Facebook.

Panel to Play Daredevil is up as well.

He's an AoE bomb followed by counter-attacks when defending.

Plenty of places broke the street date, particularly overseas. Official release is Friday.

I've also seen Oct 9th as the date for Kingpin/DD/Bullseye/Punisher/Taskmaster/Construction Site

And now panel to play for Taskmaster. I think as expected, he's looking like a character killer. It will be interesting to see if he's 2 or 3 threat.
