I like that characters get power tokens for each wound they receive and other ways, and then can use those power tokens as a resource to pay for powers. I like that you can throw things and break things. But, it would be expensive and take away from games I already have and enjoy.

That said, I did preorder the Marvel Champions LCG announced by FFG. It seems like a cross between LotR LCG and Arkham Horror LCG. I watched some videos and it looks really cool. They seem to have finally gotten smart at FFG and made this core set totally complete, so you don't have to buy other core sets to get some of the cards not included in just one set. It also seems to be setup to make deck-building easier and less intimidating for newbies and that will make it easier to teach and get others into. But I believe they will add to it over time to give those that love to spend time trying to maximize their decks and such.

Anyway, I haven't bought a non-miniatures game related game in awhile, but I can't pass on being able to get my superhero fix. It plays solo and co-op, so it will definitely get played and I won't have to paint anything
I'm considering getting the core set and seeing how we take to it. I recently sold a bundle of our card cuz they weren't hitting the table (we kept DC Deckbuilding, Legendary (We love the Encounters games), and SW: Destiny even though we no longer buy new cards since the rotation). But we got rid of VS, GoT: LCG, LotR LCG, and some others. While we enjoyed some of these games, LotR in particular, they weren't hitting the table anymore.

But Champions has our attention and if it can push Marvel Legendary from one of the go-to supers card games, we'll keep it getting more. The game looks pretty neat and I think they had a good team of designers on the game.
I think Champions can be pretty successful and replace some other superhero games, like Sentinels for some people. I believe the designer of LotR and Arkham Horror LCG is part of this design team, so that is a good sign.
