  • Boomerang Comeback: When the red or blue countdown tiles finish the timer, Steve Rogers will regain 10 red or blue AP.
  • The Captain: He is called "Captain America" after all.

  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Sentinel of Liberty creates up to four Shield Tiles with an impressive amount of strength of 339 each at max covers (total strength of 1356).

Storm's strong will and bright spirit drove her to accept Charles Xavier's offer to leave her African village for America as a member of the X-Men. This choice set her on the path to become not just the X-Men's leader, but one of the most respected and powerful heroes on Earth.

Green: Lightning Strike
Yellow: Mistress of the Elements
Black: Hailstorm

  • Delinquent Hair: This is the result of Storm embracing her passionate side instead of repressing them with self-control.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: This version of Storm does not hold back in her edgy fashion sense compared to the rest of the Storms.
  • Next Tier Power-Up: Actually it skips a tier—Mohawk Storm's powers are direct upgrades of the 1-star version. Unlike the "lazy" 3-stars like Thor or Daken, this is a welcome reprisal, especially since Hailstorm can convert half of the board into friendly strike tiles.
  • Weather Manipulation: All three of her abilities involves controlling the weather pattern.

Yellow: Thunder Strike
Green: Call the Storm

  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: This is how Thor keeps up with his relentless assault as his main strategy.
  • Blow You Away: Call The Storm will damage the entire enemy team and does double its damage to whoever is unfortunately in the front.
  • Shock and Awe: Thunder Strike creates more green tiles on the board while causing some damage.
  • When All You Have Is a Hammer...: Mjolnir is pretty much the epitome of Thor's abilities.

After battling Earth's Mightiest Heroes and discovering Ultron's true motives, Vision has a change of heart and became an Avenger himself.

Red: Solar Beam / Light Disruption / Heavy Strike
Yellow: Density: Light

  • Artificial Human: Vision is an android created by Ultron.
  • Intangibility: Density: Light allows Vision to take less damage from enemy attacks.
  • Megaton Punch: Density: Hard buffs up Vision's attack power so much he can hit harder than a truck.
  • Stance System: His red ability changes depending on his Density. If there are no Density countdown tiles present, Attack Protocol becomes Solar Beam that destroys random number of tiles. If Density: Light is active, Vision removes enemy tiles with Light Disruption. If Density: Heavy is active, Vision delivers damage to the entire enemy team with Heavy Strike.

Red: Best There Is
Yellow: Healing Factor

  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Wolverine goes undercover as a sharp-dressed man named "Patch".
  • The Berserker: Wolverine's abilities are inherently dangerous to both sides due to his green and red abilities giving enemy Strike tiles.
  • Eye Patch Of Power: He isn't stronger than X-Force version of Wolverine, but at least he's more powerful than the Uncommon version.

How well does it match the trope?
