Nick Fury sighed and looked at his roster of heroes, "b-listers at best" and he had a Loki sized problem brewing on the horizon. He needed new blood, bigger heroes, better heroes. He needed the Avengers… and Spiderman… and sure, throw Wolverine in there for good measure.

Marvel Legendary was released in 2012 and is still going strong seven years later with four additional expansions announced for 2020, to add to the sizable cohort already on the shelves (19 at the time of going to print.) Marvel Legendary is also my most played game of all time with around 650 plays under my belt, with no sign of that number slowing down any time soon.

Let’s take a look at what you get in this massive box and then we’ll get to my thoughts on the game.


  • 15 Heroes (14 cards each)

  • 40 S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents

  • 20 S.H.I.E.L.D. Troopers

  • 30 S.H.I.E.L.D. Officers

  • 4 Masterminds (5 cards each)

  • 7 Villain Groups (8 cards each)
