If it were an Explosive Special Attack (as originally pictured), it would've only been one attack of 3, unmodifiable, against Drake's defense of three, so it wouldn't automatically "destroy" Drake.
It just seems kinda cruel that a 240 point figure can get owned by a 110 point figure now, since Drake should have no problem getting into melee with Iron Man and unloading with those 6 attack against Iron Man's 7 shields. Iron Man's double attack of 4 will doubtlessly damage Drake's 3 defense quicker - and Drake having one more life won't help *that* much, but, still, Drake should be able to destroy more than his points worth of Iron Man before it's over.
Not that I think having that counter is such a bad thing, though. It's just another reason I could see for justifying a swap in costs for Iron Man and Captain America (who does have a nasty special to take on Drake with).

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

I initially thought this guy was a little bland but in gameplay he is the man. It's always smart to have order markers on him and scary when your opponent does. I'm beginning to see why he wasn't loaded with Ironman themed abilities. If he was, he could easily be a 300+ character.

Bats- Flying makes Ironman costly. Even if Drake can take him down 1 on 1, he is more effective than Drake.

No, I'm sure you're right. I think I'm just secretly disappointed that they took off an ability after the original card was leaked. I'm mostly just killing time in Theoryscape, though, because I haven't actually gotten my hands on a set of Marvelscape yet. :P

Well my problem is that Iron Man is the "greatest" inventor in the Marvel Universe. Why is it that he can only do a double attack? I mean his suit alone has tons of gadgets built inside it. Or use a sonic device like he did in civil war rendering all adjacent figures useless or at least having to roll for wounds or something.

Ironman does seem powerful. But I also thought hes the most boring character in the set. Nothing special about him. He seems kinda risky for the points with only 4 life.

I'm starting to find IronMan as one of my favorite Marvel characters to use and when powered with the Hulk it's a deadly combo.

However, after playing last night I had a question.

Is his double attack considered a special attack? Or is that just his normal attack?

In our game last night I had a gliph for +1 attack and always had height advantage so I was always rolling a +6 double attack and he was making quick work of everyone. So I got to thinking maybe he shouldn't get the +1 attack for height if the double attack is considered a special.

Thanks!

It's not a special attack unless it says "special attack" in the title. Double attack allows Iron Man to place two normal attacks with his normal attack value plus any boosters. You played it right and in that situation, he should be dominant, so good job!

It's an important part of the game that not every unit responds to every glyph or bonus in the same way. Due to multiple shots, Iron Man was powering up from the +2 attack more than most other heroes would. It's intentional that he should dominate in such a scenario.

Troll Warrior is surprisingly tart
Having only just seen the prototype Iron Man card, I've got to say ... its the one I'll be using as soon as I get the Color Ink to print him out. It's not like he'll be able to use the actual Explosive all that often, what with MarvelScape being small, high-cost teams, but its existance makes me feel better about him.

I've seen people mention prototype cards in several different places, but I've been unable to find any of the cards themselves by searching. Is there a dedicated thread anywhere to the prototype cards seen at cons / on packaging?

That is not dead which can eternal lie.
