    • They've already done a scarf with the Rogue/Pyro 2 pack so Ms. Marvel could easily go on that. Really thought by now we'd have her- thought she might get released with the Captain Marvel wave.
    • The Vision. CLASSIC Vision. While the "vintage" version had the best paint job, the body buck is really too small for the character. They should have taken the pectoral articulation and colors on that one, and put them on the larger buck used in the Vision/Captain/Kate 3 pack. The Vision has earcups on that widow's peak cowl of his. 3 pack got it right, vintage didn't. The solar gem on his forehead isn't diamond shaped, its teardrop shaped.  The Vision's eyes are basically black sockets; sometimes there are tiny gold lights. I suppose the 3pack came closer to getting this right (but really the one that did it best was the first Hasbro Vision back in 2010). The Vision's cape has a distinctive collar and a cord that pulls it together; no Marvel Legends figure yet seems to be able to get this right. Its not like they don't have the ability- Taskmaster has the cord on his cape. I do like that they got the length right on each version so far, perhaps an optional cape representing movement could be added (like they did with Storm's cape in the Storm/Thunderbird 2 pack).  The Vision's belt is a distinctive piece that for some reason, these people want to paint on, and it just looks silly and cheap each time. Puma and Night Thrasher both have similar belts, and those are molded separate pieces, so there's no reason for Hasbro to keep doing this to the Vision.  The Vision wears standard old school superhero briefs, not "trunks"; they never did this before, so why they did it for his vintage look makes no sense. Then there are his boots. Why Legends can mold distinctive boots for the likes of Wolverine, Shatterstar, Thunderstrike, Nova (Groot BAF), etc. but can't/won't do standard boots that end in a point to the knee, like DC Essentials does, is just beyond me. Especially when there are so many characters that wear that style of boot! When they do the Vision's boots they paint on the pointed top and it just looks so so very cheap.
    • Yep, I feel it should've also included other characters as well like have Wanda, Wonder Man, Vision, Hawkeye, Mockingbird, etc... come in and rotate with other characters. When Al Ewing wrote Empyre he used Aaron's Avengers team, and other Avengers characters better and brought in Hulkling, Cotati Swordsman, Quoi, Mantis, Wiccan, F4, and the Agents of Wakanda. Also in the Empyre: Avengers tie-in by Zub he used: Luke Cage, Dr. Nemesis, Gorilla Man, Black Knight, Wanda, Vision, Ka-Zar, Doctor Voodoo, Quicksilver, Wonder Man, etc... who pretty much have all been in limbo. Also Aaron's goal in the Avengers is just to make them look bad especially Thor. Hell even Tony and Carol are out of character like "we're not family" line, when protecting baby Starbrand, which was dumb killing off Kevin when it's possible for there to be multiple Starbrands especially from different planets. Also the whole Squadron Supreme of America and the previous team is just forgotten about. The choice of choosing Black Widow for a space mission when they can call: Spectrum, Blue Marvel, Quasar, etc... He only seems to write Black Panther and Blade good. Namor contradicts what Zdarsky wrote in Invaders and what Pak was writing in Agents of Atlas. Aaron already needs off of Avengers, he should stay on writing Jane Foster and give him maybe Black Panther. There's plenty of creators who would do great on the Avengers titles, give us a few titles, with classic characters back as well as new characters in the ranks like Toni Ho, America Chavez, Kate Bishop, Patriot (Eli), Goliath (Tom Foster), etc... and have the books be interconnected with each other like the X-Books. Hell they don't even interact with the rest of the MU like the rest of the Marvel books, like Hulk hasn't appeared, Champions haven't appeared, Empyre wasn't mentioned, neither was Absolute Carnage, and it looks like Aaron is doing KiB tie in, as obligation before Heroes Reborn, and after his Phoenix tournament stuff. 
    • This set looks really neat actually, I mean if that big dragon shows up in the movie that gets me a bit more excited for it. I won't hold too much weight to this set because as we have seen in the past Lego uses a lot of elements that don't always end up in the movies, Hulkbuster Warmachine comes to mind.  
    • Ah fair enough, I guess I am used to seeing more overly powerful characters using the glove, in the past, and probably don't remember a ton of newer stories involving it other then MCU which depicts it as being too powerful for just any one to use. I still remember the old stories where mostly big cosmic guns were using it.
