evel in villains. However before I join the complaints on social media towards this, I think its important to remember how insanely powerful the two heroes that arrived beforehand, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, are. Its a balancing act of increasingly great heroes matched up against ever stronger villains that will keep the game alive and going moving forwards.
With so many of us now enjoying the Galaxy’s Most Wanted box, it is becoming clearer which cards are the ones you want to see in your hand when The Collector is bearing down on you. Having played through the campaign with both characters, I can honestly say I love both of their designs, either tinkering and charging with weapons in the midst of a crisis with Rocket (does anyone have any tape?) or growing at a gargantuan rate as the lovable Groot. I try to remind myself that I shouldn’t be bench marking their overall power levels against the likes of Quicksilver and Doctor Strange and just enjoying the ride and what their cards bring to the game.
Many content creators have posted their rankings and power lists of the individual characters, but what is the best 4 player team you can run now? Especially as its one character for one aspect. Now this was actually harder than you think to come up with, as the reality is all of my hero choices could have gone into any of the aspects. So getting the balance right was tough and it was the fine margins that decided who should sit in which aspect. Now I imagine everyone will have different ideas on this but all I can hope for is that when reading through this you at least appreciate my reasoning if you don’t agree with my choices!
One of my favorite things about Marvel Champions is, how cheap the game is to collect and own compared to other titles I've played. If you set out the initial investment, you're looking at fifteen pounds or dollars, roughly, to get a new hero every 4-6 weeks on average with the odd campaign expansion box thrown in now and again. So if you're starting from scratch though, assuming your first purchase is the core box and your second is the Rise of the Red Skull campaign, which packs should you prioritize?
Marvel Champions is almost 2 years old, but as the interest in the Marvel franchise is still at an all time high, we can hopefully expect more and more players enjoying the game, particularly once lockdown restrictions ease up. To that end, here is a helpful guide for new players, but also one that might make more seasoned ones think on something a little differently.
