Mr. Sinister, Deadpool, Cable, Domino, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, Hydra Bob, and a Taco Truck are Coming to Marvel: Crisis Protocol

Atomic Mass Games has revealed the second wave of X-Men releases for Marvel: Crisis Protocol. Out in the second quarter of 2021, the releases feature some we knew about and others we didn’t.

Revealed are Mr. Sinister, a Cable and Domino pack, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch pack, and Deadpool who also features Hydra Bob and a Taco Truck. It’ll be interesting to see which factions Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch belong to as they have been a part of the Avengers, Brotherhood, X-Men (Quicksilver has), and just general villains.

You can see that Deadpool is coming with a lot of options as far as heads and design, so should be fun for those to put together and use during games.

Check out the screen shots from the images below as well as the full trailer.

After their reveal video, Atomic Mass Games have released a better look at the first wave of X-Men releases for Marvel: Crisis Protocol. In the initial launch are Cyclops, Storm, Beast, and Wolverine for the X-Men and Magneto, Mystique, Toad, and Sabretooth for the Evil Brotherhood. There was also a tease of Deadpool coming to the game. Check out the official photos of the figures below as well as a teaser video.

The initial wave of X-Men figures will be released as the usual miniature packs. Wolverine will be with Sabretooth, Cyclops with Storm, Beast with Mystique, and Magneto with Toad.

On the Atomic Mass page for what’s going on during Gen Con Online, the game publisher has 8 slots teasing what’s still to come. Guesses as to who we’ll see?

Atomic Mass Games Announces X-Men for Marvel: Crisis Protocol

Since the game launched, there’s been a push by fans to introduce the X-Men into Atomic Mass GamesMarvel: Crisis Protocol. In the lead up to the first-ever virtual Gen Con, the game company has announced that indeed the X-Men are coming!

The X-Men are kicking off the second year of the game. Cyclops, Wolverine, Storm, and Beast vs. Magneto, Toad, Sabretooth, and Mystique are the lead releases! The figures will be released in packs, not a starter. Plus, a Deadpool teaser!

The reason for no new core back is because the X-Men were planned as part of the core game. They aren’t a standalone thing and are being introduced like any character.

The characters will be coming out later this year and there is more X-Men coming that will be released along with other characters. But, with the need for other releases, there will be a gap between the first wave of X-Men and what comes after.

X-Men are Coming to Marvel: Crisis Protocol

Atomic Mass Games has gotten a lot of requests to add members of the X-Men to their Marvel: Crisis Protocol miniature game.

It looks like that might be exactly what’s happening.

With an announcement on July 29 (which would be timed for the canceled and now virtual Gen Con) the game publisher is announcing… something.

Speculation is that a new starter set would be announced featuring the X-Men and villains. The announcement a big shock as the company’s already revealed releases are coming to an end leaving a large unknown after.

So, start speculating! What would you like to see with the X-Men?

A First Look at Marvel Dice Masters: X-Men First Class

WizKids has released a first look at WizKidsDice Masters set, Marvel Dice Masters: X-Men First Class. This September, the set brings more mutants to the tabletop for Dice Masters action. The 124-card expansion features multiple rosters of X-Men, the Exiles, and the Brotherhood of Mutants.

The X-Men have been featured in numerous sets either as the main focus or as teams within. Sets with a primary focus on X-men include Avengers vs. X-Men, Deadpool, and Uncanny X-Men

The set is focused on spinning character dice up and down to manipulate abilities and strength. There’s also new keywords:

Awaken – lets you damage your opponent, reroll opposing characters, or get an attack boost by spinning up to a higher level.

Professor X: Peaceful Coexistence allows players to spin all X-Men-affiliated dice up one level at the start of their turn. Cyclops and Iceman both have the Awaken keyword. Cyclops: Boy Scout may deal three damage to a target character when his character die is spun up, while Iceman: Cold Hands, Warm Heart doubles his attack value.

Thunderbird: Warrior of the Apache will allow you to spin up all your characters when he’s KO’d. If Sunfire: Moeagaru! is also on your team, his Awaken ability will activate giving him +1A and +1D. Storm: Misspent Youth allows a player to prep a die from their bag whenever a Storm die spins up a level.

Infiltratelets you deal direct damage with “while active” abilities.

Magneto: The House of M grants all Brotherhood characters the keyword. Blob: Appetite for Destruction has the ability to prevent an opponent from both purchasing and fielding dice from a chosen card, and Scarlet Witch: Careful What You Wish For can force an opponent to twice roll an Action face before they can use it.

But Infiltrate isn’t just for the Brotherhood, the Exiles have it too.

Blink: Unhinged from Reality gains Infiltrate whenever a player uses an Action die. Mimic: Borrowed Talent allows a player to copy the A and D of a character and Prep two dice anytime that character is fielded, while Morph: Change of Heart can use the effects of a Basic Action Card while attacking.

The set also sees the debut of Thunderbird, Sunfire, Banshee, Doop, Onslaught, Boom Boom, Jubilee, and more!
