Being one of the bigger announcements from Gen Con, Fantasy Flight is bringing out Marvel Champions, a new LCG based on Marvel comics characters. While we don't normally cover LCGs, we figured that having coverage of such a hot property at least to its initial release was ideal. As such, we present Fantasy Flight's preview of the upcoming Captain America Hero Pack.
From the post:
When Steve Rogers was deemed too frail to enlist during World War II, he took part in a secret government program to transform him into the world’s first Super-Soldier. With the help of a revolutionary serum, Rogers emerged from the experiment as the embodiment of physical perfection. Now in peak condition, Rogers served as a special operative and a bastion of freedom in World War II until an accident near the end of the war submerged him in ice for decades. Discovered by the Avengers in the modern era, Captain America continues to fight for the American Dream. A man out of time, but never out of courage.
Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Captain America Hero Pack for Marvel Champions: The Card Game!
With his iconic shield made of pure vibranium, Captain America can lead the charge against even the most fearsome of foes, inspiring those around him with legendary valor.
Like all Hero Packs, the Captain America Hero Pack includes a fully-playable deck right out of the box that includes 15 Hero cards, 17 cards from the Leadership aspect, and 8 basic cards. Additionally, look for Captain America’s signature obligation and nemesis set, and three copies of one new card for each of the other aspects! This deck brings Captain America to the forefront of the action with his trusty shield, as he assists the heroes around him while calling on new Avengers to join the fight!
