  • Black Order – Black Dwarf, Ebony Maw, Corvus Glaive, and Proxima Midnight
  • Uncanny X-Men – Beast, Cyclops, Storm, Wolverine

It’s a great way to quickly pick up a faction to play with.

The show also went over upcoming releases like Malekith, Baron Strucker, the new Red Skull, and Armin Zola. As well as the new Captain America. The Zola looks even more impressive with great use of the see-through chest.

But, it was the reveals that were exciting.

Hydra scenery was shown including a tank with the Red Skull riding inside. There’s more coming for this including lasers instead of a missile pod. The missile pod can also go on the tank. The other piece of scenery is a power generator. It can all be used as an Ultimate Encounter as well! The scenario is the Red Skull riding around a tank to take over the city and he has to be stopped! This comes in the fall.

The figures are highly posable with ball swivels, all sorts of hands, and damaged parts, this set sounds amazing.

Daredevil, Elektra, and The Hand Revealed, Plus Grunts Explained for Marvel: Crisis Protocol

2022 looks like it’s going to be an interesting year for Atomic Mass GamesMarvel: Crisis Protocol. We already have some intriguing releases revealed plus a whole new aspect to the game… Grunts!

Already teased, we now have a good look at the new “Shadowland” Daredevil, Elektra, and the Hand, all coming to the game soon.

"Shadowland" Daredevil, Elektra, and the Hand

But, the bigger news is Grunts and how they’ll work in the game. Grunts are low-level characters, think minions and henchmen, the cannon fodder.

Grunts are described as the “nameless backdrop” by Atomic Mass Games. In the game, Grunts are tied to a Parent character. They can’t enter the battlefield or be used on rosters or squards without their Parent. They’re so tied together Grunts need the Parent to even take actions. If the Parent character goes down, so goes the Grunts. But, Parents can be a part of the team without Grunts, we’ve got a heirarchy here people!

Parents will have superpowers and abilities that call Grunts in and dismiss them as well. Grunts can’t play or be chosen by allied Team Tactic Cards.

Grunts can activate with their Parent. When the Parent goes, so does the Grunts. And, a Parent can only have one Grunt character in play at a time.

Unlike current characters, Grunts don’t have Injured sides and can’t be Dazed, instead if they’re Dazed, they’re immediately KO’d instead.

This new aspect opens up a whole lot of possibilities. We’ve seen the Hand and S.H.I.E.L.D. agents but now maybe we’ll see A.I.M., Hydra agents, or even Doom Bots!

Shadowland Looms over Marvel: Crisis Protocol

Atomic Mass Games has released a teaser for some upcoming releases for the Marvel: Crisis Protocol miniature game.

The image shows silhouettes of Elektra, a new Daredevil (most likely in his black costume), and Hand Ninjas.

The Hand Ninjas are particularly interesting as their the second low-level “minions” to be teased in the new year. Atomic Mass Games kicked off the year showing off the upcoming Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents.

Shadowland is a storyline released in 2010 involving Daredevil and other “street-level” characters. In it, Daredevil becomes the leader of the Hand and builds a massive temple/prison in Hell’s Kitchen dubbed “Shadowland”. He kills Bullseye and becomes more and more corrupted pitting him against his former allies. We later find out that Daredevil is possessed by the Beast of the Hand which is why he has changed. It takes Daredevil’s former allies, Kingpin, and Lady Bullseye to stop him.

Nick Fury, S.H.I.E.L.D., and a Quinjet are coming to Marvel: Crisis Protocol

2022 is looking to be interesting for Marvel: Crisis Protocol, the miniature game from Atomic Mass Games. Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents will be entering the game along with a new terrain pack, a Quinjet!

A new character pack features Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents delivering something new to the game. While Fury is a single miniature, the Agents are a trio of figures on one base. That’s the first “low level” type of grouping and possibly opens up the game to more generic henchmen. How that’ll play will be interesting to see.

The Quinjet combines the technological prowess of Wakandan engineering and Stark Industries, Quinjets have served both the Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives as a rapid-response vehicle able to carry them where a crisis mounts. Quinjets are a crucial part of how the Earth’s mightiest heroes and covert teams can arrive wherever they are needed most.

X-23 and Honey Badger are Coming to Marvel: Crisis Protocol

Atomic Mass Games has released an official image showing off X-23 and Honey Badger. The characters will be coming to Marvel: Crisis Protocol sometime in 2022.

X-23, aka Laura Kinney, debuted in NYX #3 in 2004 and was created by Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost. The character is a clone of Wolverine and has been a member of the X-Men and X-Force, and more of the years.
