Atomic Mass Games recently started updating their Marvel: Crisis Protocol gallery showing off lots of the heroes in more detail that you'll be getting in the core set and the first two character expansions. So, without further ado, it seems apt to dive in and just start showing them off!

I really like the choices that they've made for the heroes in Crisis Protocol. We have some fan favourites in there like Captain America and Spider-Man alongside some nice picks to build up the diverse roster with Captain Marvel and Black Widow.

As well as bringing us a nice diverse mix of characters we're also seeing a neat nudge towards building an Avengers affiliated squad of heroes. Captain America, Black Widow and Iron Man immediately mean you should be able to run the affiliation and get the extra bonus from Captain America.

Villains!

On the villain's side, we have a much more disparate array of character options. Now, of course, you can mix and match between heroes and villains but I think a lot of people are going to try and stick to notable teams, at least in the beginning.

There is a nice mix of villains here and it feels like it's a good selection which works against specific characters on the hero side; Ultron versus Iron Man, Doctor Octopus versus Spider-Man for example.

When we saw the images of the miniatures from Gen Con there was some grumbling that the detail wasn't as nice when compared to the old Knight Models range but I honestly think these are some great looking models. A lot of detail has been worked into the plastic kits and it will be cool to see just how easy they are to assemble.

Expansions

The first two character expansions for the game have already been previewed and it includes Hulk...

...and M.O.D.O.K.

M.O.D.O.K seems like an interesting option for them to bring into the mix but I assume he's there to show that they have a lot to explore when it comes to delving into the comic books. I think it would have been nice to see another of Spider-Man's enemies so you can start building up the Sinister Six. Perhaps they could have included Rhino if they wanted another big hero in the mix?

The release for the game is set to be Fall this year (or Autumn for many of us) and there are plenty of stores which are already taking pre-orders.

Make sure to check out my preview of the rules HERE.
