This Ranking article will be like a VS. article, except that we will compare multiple sets of cards against each other rather than just two like She-Hulk vs. Thor. We will look at the newly-released Kree Fanatic modular set in comparison to the other currently-released modular sets focused on a mini-boss enemy: The Doomsday Chair (MODOK), Legions of Hydra (Madame Hydra), A Mess of Things (Scorpion), Power Drain (Electro), and Running Interference (Tombstone). The rankings will go from most-difficult to least-difficult. Click here for our statistical breakdown of all modular sets.
Welcome new readers and returning readers to another Marvel Champions Spoiler. Thank you for taking time out of your day to read our spoiler article. Also we would like to send a huge thank you to FFG for sharing this spoiler with us and allowing us to share it with you. Without farther ado, here it is....
I think these two heroes occupy similar spaces in the current catalog of Marvel Champions heroes, and so it should be interesting to compare and contrast them to find out if one is better than the other or, more likely, identify the situations in which each should be favored. I'll give my thoughts in a "tale of the tape" style, meaning we'll look at each hero's stats, printed abilities, signature cards, and any other miscellaneous considerations and decide which hero has the advantage in each category. Then determine an overall winner. I'll also speculate about what kinds of future cards could tip the scales in one direction or the other. Let's get into it, starting with the hero's basic stats.
With the cancellation of this year's Gen Con, and all of the community events that go along with it, many content creators for the Marvel Champions, Arkham Horror, and Lord of the Rings LCGs from Fantasy Flight Games are joining forces to hold an online event called the League of Cooperative Gaming Convention (LeagueCG Con).
To continue our Why? series here at I Rebel, I wanted to dig into Heroic Mode because I was not sure myself why I would want play on Heroic difficulty. You can read FFG's announcement article here if you are unfamiliar with the game rules, but it's basically just dealing each player X extra cards each villain phase. For all of my games described below, X=1 because I am not a masochist.
