SWTCG was made by Wizards of the Coast (WOTC). The first set - Attack of the Clones - was released in 2002 in conjunction with the movie. From the beginning, SWTCG was marred with controversy as WOTC really only acquired the license because its main rival produced the Decipher Star Wars Collectible Card Game (SWCCG).
We made it to Phase 2! Nice work, everyone. Iron Man 3 is another of those MCU films that sort of blended into the background of the larger Marvel story, so I was happy to return to it.
We made it. At last we will see the Avengers on screen together. And not just in little cameos during each others' movies, but in a true ensemble fashion. And sure, Bruce Banner looks a little different from the first time we met him, but Nick Fury and Phil Coulson are here to tie it all together and remind us that this is one giant universe, the culmination of years of careful planning.
Great Scott, Marty! Fire up the flux capacitor, reverse the polarity of the neutron flow, and activate the Time Stone - no, wait, that's still a few movies away. Sorry, the point is, we're going back in time!
We are inching ever closer to the first Avengers! Today we introduce a new player in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He's a godlike figure, powerful, handsome, one of the most iconic and important characters across the MCU and the larger Infinity Saga arc.
The rewatch continues with Iron Man 2. I'll be honest, this one was never my favorite entry in the MCU. The upside is that I haven't watched it very often or in a long time, so this was like watching it for the first time all over again! We've got a new villain, a new Stark Industries CEO, and a brand new Rhodey!
On the 20th of December, FFG gave to me: three packs-of-champions, two villain-scenarios and a week-and-a-half to play it all. I really lucked out this year. I have a subscription through Team Covenant for all the Marvel Champions product types and I received Captain America, Ms. Marvel, and the Green Goblin expansions on Saturday, December 21st. I was off work from December 23rd until January 2nd. I spent a week of that time in St. Augustine, Florida, at my in-laws home where it's generally a pretty laid-back, lazy time. As of the time of this writing, I have played quite a bit of Champions.
