MCU Cards, figs, scenarios, etc
Hey guys, I'm coming back to the forums after a long hiatus (back in the day I logged in as EyeOfSauron). I'm now mostly posting over on the Heroscapers Facebook group, but thought I would dip my toe in over here too.

After finally watching all the movies from beginning to end again on Disney+, I've become a little obsessed with the Mavel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Also, the recent release of Marvel Crisis Protocol skirmish game has Marvel Heroscape on my mind. I went on a bit of a spending spree on eBay to buy up Heroclix figures for all the movies and I'm currently rebasing them.

I'm interested to know if there is a thread on here specifically for the MCU...cards, minis, scenarios, etc? I searched but can't find one.

Lots of C3G cards work fine for the MCU, but many are slightly different than the movies--and a few characters are missing or totally different-- because of the liberties they took with the movies over the comics.

At a minimum, I'm looking to update some of the official C3G cards with pics of the Heroclix minis. But I'm tempted to go further and take on a full project to build out the entire MCU from figures & cards, glyphs/objects (tesserct, etc) to scenarios & campaign play.

Please point me to anything you know of that I can start with and/or your thoughts on such an endeavor.

Lazy Orang is our C3G designer with limited comic experience, so a few of her designs are more MCU-influenced. I'm specifically thinking of Iron Man (Avengers), Groot (Baby) and Thanos (Infinity Quest). A lot of our vIIs for the Guardians take a lot of movie inspiration as well. C3G also has a few cool treats sitting in the wings for MCU fans, which we can hopefully release soon.

It would definitely be cool to see some more MCU-inspired takes on characters like Spidey, Star-Lord (a version that's more Avengers team-up friendly would be cool), Black Panther, Falcon, etc would be cool. Depending on the existence of tie-in comics, that's something you could even potentially run in the C3G framework, if you're interested in that.

I know we've talked about MCU inspired or influenced Falcon and Winter Soldier designs. Since they have a show coming out where they buddy up, maybe that will spur some interests in making both cards where they like being drafted together without Cap as well.

Maybe a MCU-inspired Soldier Falcon, and then a Winter Soldier that likes hanging out with Soldiers?

A Soldier Winter Soldier?

Re: MCU Cards, figs, scenarios, etc
I like that. Maybe give Winter Soldier a buddy ability, so he chooses a Soldier at the start of the game to bond with. So you get Cap + Bucky or Falcon + Bucky when we get a soldier Falcon.

Re: MCU Cards, figs, scenarios, etc
I was just thinking the Soldiers need one more figure that can bond. Then Rock and partner can be one wave and Winter and buddy could be another.
Or you could slow roll them all up

I like that approach. I've grown to really love the pick one hero to bond with powers. Works great on the theme level while keeping the bonding in check by being limited to just one other figure. Open bonding it too expensive in comparison.

I like where this is going...

Don't forget MCU Falcon also has Redwing as sidekick/buddy/glyph-ish thing. :)
