Actually, I'd think kids would know more than most folks. And with comics becoming more and more mainstream I think you underestimate the average fans' familiarity with the Marvel U.

And there's certainly more than 30 notables in the Marvel U, even for the casual fan that only knows Marvel from movies and cartoons....I'd say there's between 50 and 100 before you dip too far into obscurity.

Heck, we already have 20 figures confirmed. You're saying there's only 10 more worth making?

Here's ten right here:
-Wolverine
-Daredevil
-Thor
-Elektra
-Doctor Strange
-Mister Fantastic
-Nick Fury
-Hawkeye
-Green Goblin
-Colossus

Okay, then boys...let's pack it up. No use making Cyclops, Jean Grey, Magneto, Professor X, Juggernaut, Ghost Rider, Kingpin, Iceman, Nightcrawler, Mystique, Toad, Gambit, Rogue, Sabretooth, Blade, Wasp, Scarlett Witch, Vision, Black Widow, Quicksilver, She-Hulk, Spider-Woman, or anything else. Unknownknowned says the kids won't know them. Let's close it up while we're ahead.

Not sure how recognizable Thanos is, but he made the Masterset. It's not all reconizability - it's having enough of it.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

True, but as major characters run dry the game will likely stop making wads of money and thus stop being produced. There's only so many times they can rehash the same characters, expecially because scape, unlike clix, does not retire waves. In clix, old wolverines cease to exist, for all intents and purposes, so a new one can come along and still be a worthwhile purchase.
But there is near infinite numbers of characters in Marvel. If they really wanted to make money they keep on producing sets like (Wolverine and the Circus of Crime). Everyone would buy the pack because they need Wolverine, but end up paying for figures that they don't know and couldn't care less about, like the Ringmaster and his Circus or like Jessica Jones.

There are tons of spiderman villians that are mainstream, Kingpin, you could get into the sentinels, Apocolypse and his horsemen, Cable and Stryfe, X-factor, X-Force, Mr. Sinister, Sauron, tons of other X-men villians. The list goes on. We have 40 years of history to pull from, not including recent movies. Blackheart for Ghostrider just came to mind as well.

... a villain for Silver Surfer. They replaced the Iron Man villain (for example, Mandarin) with the neccessary Dr. Doom.

32 Figures below (With their Major Enemy. Each of these should have an enemy to fight) So there is several more that can be done.
  • -Wolverine
    -Sabretooth

    -Daredevil
    -Kingpin

    -Thor

    -Elektra
    -Green Goblin

    -Doctor Strange

    -Mister Fantastic

    -Nick Fury

    -Hawkeye

    -Colossus
    -Juggernaut

    -Cyclops
    -Toad

    -Jean Grey

    -Magneto
    -Professor X

    -Iceman

    -Nightcrawler

    -Gambit

    -Rogue
    -Mystique


    -Blade

    -Wasp

    -Scarlett Witch

    -Vision

    -Black Widow

    -Quicksilver

    -She-Hulk

    -Spider-Woman

    -Ghost Rider

A quick list of what could be included as enemies.

Ultron
Kang
Apocaylapse
Pyro
Loki
Baron Mordu
Black Cat
Morbius



With these you could easily throw in some 2 or 3 more unknown characters per 10 figures.

The 4 horsemen. Yeah but Apocalypse I can see them making. Its no different then Doctor Doom.

Apocalypse and the 4 horsemen have even been on the Cartoon back in the 90's.
