Another Marvel Legendary expansion is on the horizon, with a focus on S.H.I.E.L.D. More information has emerged, and it looks like it will be a pretty standard small set.
- 4 New Heroes.
- 2 New Villain Groups.
- 2 New Adapting Masterminds.
- 4 New Schemes.
- 16 New Special S.H.I.E.L.D. Officers (2 each of 8 types).
All this sounds pretty standard but special S.H.I.E.L.D. Officers sure sounds like a welcome addition to the game. And oh, here's one of them:
The heroes of the set will be Deathlok, Mockingbird, Phil Coulson, and Quake. Hopefully, these will make the SHIELD faction strong enough to hold their own, that will probably be the case when combined with Captain Marvel from the Marvel Legendary: Revelations set.
The Masterminds will be HYDRA High Council and Super Adaptoid. These Mastersminds will be Adapting Masterminds, and will work like this;
A normal Mastermind has a Mastermind card and 4 Mastermind Tactic cards. An Adapting Mastermind instead has just 4 Mastermind Tactic cards. Whichever Tactic is currently on top of the stack of Tactics counts as the current Mastermind card. When it's time for a master strike, the current tactic will be performed, and then the Mastermind will Adapt. As in you shuffle the remaining tactics and perhaps a new tactic will get on top, changing the Mastermind completely. Cool!
This expansion will be the 4th Marvel Legendary expansion 2019, we are not complaining :-) You can pre-order this set from gamenerdz for just 15 bucks. A steal if you ask us. A steal.
That's it for now, but be assured that we will post more info as soon as possible.
Our favorite Marvel: Legendary expansions so far:
This one is the very first expansion you should get. Introduces a ton of new mechanics, heroes (Cable, Blade, Elektra, Punisher and so on.) and villains, like Apocalypse and Kingpin. Unfortunately, it's out of print at the moment, and if you come across it somewhere, get it!
This one takes place on "Planet Hulk", obviously starring more Hulk characters, which is always good, and villains like The Red King and The Sentry. It also introduces a couple of new mechanics.
The secret war expansions or thematically not for everybody, but they sure bring A LOT of cool characters, villains, schemes, bystanders, masterminds, etc to the mix. Who doesn't want to wreak havoc with The Captain and the Devil or Black Panther? Who doesn't want to defeat the Spider Queen? We challenge you to defeat Zombie Green Goblin with a decent scheme. Good luck.
Best expansion this far 2019, and will fit together nicely with this one.
