There's like 18 models in the game that are officially on A-Force and another 2-4 that could make the cut if they go the "Female Avengers" route. They have a lot to pick from, but She-Hulk, Cap Marvel, Medusa are the sure bets.

Moon Knight hired Blade to help him get his money back I see.

The new Spidey comes with Black Cat. I also assume Captain America will be Sam Wilson along with Warmachine.

FWIW, this fills in most of the mysteries in the release schedule. The only two announced characters that don't have a CP are Juggernaut and Jean Grey. They could be the missing CP44. CP36 is also unknown but likely something like a terrain pack.

There's also a huge gap between the Sentinel Raid(!!!?!) and the announced Scarlet Witch/Quicksilver. CP51 to CP63. Surprised those two were pushed that far out.

Sentinels Raid... Tell me more...

Really really tell me more....

As someone who really fell in love with wargaming from the 2001 Lord of the Rings narrative scenarios this could be everything.

You should give the ultimate encounters a try. Ultron, Hulk, Thanos all have pretty cool scenarios. I've heard good things about the Killmonger pack as well but haven't gotten to play it or the Magneto encounter.

Yeah, Thanos (even at the crazy UK prices), was very much my first purchase for the game outside of the core box.

Is the Magneto encounter something on the website? There wasn't anything in my box for it.

So many questions come up:

Dormammu--factions? Ultimate encounter only?

Spider-Man: black suit?

Cap: Sam makes sense as we don't have a Falcon

Mr. Sinister: faction? Ultimate encounter (or waiting until Apocolypse)?

Blade and Moon Knight as Defenders?

She-Hulk does not look like she's bringing any new A-Force models

It's a store event kit available to retailers. I haven't seen much of the details on it since my FLGS is sadly retail only right now.

Dormammu might be Unaffiliated along with Punisher. He COULD be jammed in elsewhere but I struggle to put him anywhere.

In the Deadpool trailer they imply Mr. Sinister is Brotherhood. Given how much overlap there is between Brotherhood and Marauders, they could be doing something like a third leadership or something?

Blade and Moon Knight are interesting, particularly released alongside Luke and Danny. I could see them doing a Luke Heroes for Hire leadership with a section of Defenders but I can also see them doing Midnight Sons with Blade. Maybe both? They've gotten a lot happier with significant overlap lately, so I can see either way.

There's a pretty big cut of A-Force members in the game already. I actually guessed this one back during the Gencon reveals specifically because I couldn't think of anywhere she'd fit and figured it might be easier to make her a leader instead.

He's in two affiliations. Spider Foes (Green Goblin) or Criminal Syndicate (Kingpin) which are two affiliations with a lot of overlap anyway given that these three characters are all in both.

He will be like he is in the spiderman video game,
One punch and mysterio is down.
ITs also kinda funny how they are putting these characters i absolutly know, with ones i do not. I did not know task master or moon knight at all.

We've finally reached the tipping point - there are enough classic Spidey villains (and Moon Knight!) so I can longer resist the call...

Got a thing against pointed hood cloaks?

Taskmaster is just a great character. He doesn't get a lot of publicity because he's villain middle management and rarely one to have any sort of real scheme.

Moon Knight is weird. He's a lot like Hawkman in the sense that authors are constantly trying to reinvent him into something iconic, but it just never quite sticks. He's a really cool character though so they keep trying and his backstory gets more convoluted. The hyper violent nature and raw insanity also makes it hard to fit in with other heroes which is largely why he's probably currently most well known for meme fodder.

I thought his whole motivation was getting money back?
If i wanted to know more, any books.
All this stuff is starting to get to the point where i dont exactly know them.
Alot of my comic knowledge is movies and Marvel Ultimate alliance.

Sadly, all the "Dracula owes me money" stuff is an internet prank. None of those lines are from the comics.

His actual backstory is that he was a mercenary who was betrayed and killed on a mission only to be resurrected by an Egyptian god of vengeance in order to punish the wicked. At which point he returns home and uses his vast fortune to Batman/Green Arrow it up and go out at night to beat up/cripple/murder bad guys. That's the VERY streamlined version of his reinventions that have been explained away as multiple personality disorder to the point where the Egyptian god might just be a voice in his mentally ill head telling him to kill people because he's crazy? Moon Knight has many things. Consistency is not one of them.

The 'money back' MEME for Moon Knight is just that - a tired MEME that is just a bunch of photoshopped/doctored pics.

He's a pretty cool character when done right - which he was for a while - and a mess when he's not done right - like in Bendis' run.

Will be interesting to see which way they go here (and in his TV series).

https://www.atomicmassgames.com/transmissions/panel-to-play-black-bolt

Panel to play for Black Bolt. Looks like the Inhuman faction leadership will be an every turn Recalibration Matrix, Inhumans will have a built-in 1-die reroll for attack and defense.

Also, seems to fit Inhumans to be released in February.

? It says it lets you transfer power from one character to another.

The reroll is tied to the Inhumans themselves similar to the way Asgardians generate an extra power. It also only allows you to reroll one die not the entire roll like Recalibration.

Medusa is up. Looks like a tanky-beater. Strength 5 (with a push?) Flurry basic strike and the Inhuman ability to re-roll a die on attack.

Defensively, she has Angela's Ribbons which denies moving over her. And she denies attack rerolls against her (and again the Inhuman reroll of 1 die on defense).
