Today’s preview is brought to you by co-founder of Super Awesome Games and co-designer of Vs. System® 2PCG®, Danny Mandel.
What would a Vs System® 2PCG® expansion that introduces the Brotherhood of Mutants be without Magneto?
I guess we’ll never know because here he is:
The new Magneto main character riffs on his original Super Villain character from Vs. System® 2PCG®: The Marvel Battles except this time around instead of keeping himself safe, he wants to protect his team. Specifically his team of Brotherhood buddies.
But at Level 2 Magneto has realized that in order to advance his goals for mutantkind he’s going to need help from other mutants. Specifically the X-Men.
And by Level 3 Magneto has realized his vision. Not only are all mutants unified, but they’ve gone from merely trying to stay alive to becoming a powerful force aggressively fighting for their own future.
And what would a king be without his Toady?
Keep in mind that Toad will get the +1 Health bonus regardless of what Magneto is on your side. This includes the original Magneto main character and the Magneto supporting characters from either The Marvel Battles or Shield Vs Hydra expansions.
And finally, what would a mutant with the ability to shape and control fire be without his fire creature?
Pyro’s Fire Manipulation power lets him create a supporting character creature that has the stats of a random character from your deck. The new character uses a physical supporting character card but erases its name, team affiliation, game text, and powers, and replaces them with name Fire Man, the team symbol, and the Creature keyword (which means it can’t use equipment — because it would melt obviously!) When it’s KO’d or otherwise leaves play, the card will go back to counting as the character printed on it.
We hope you enjoyed today’s Preview Article. Until next Wednesday, Make Mine Mutant!
