The Unusual Evolution of the Marvel Super Hero Squad.

Near the end of April 2012 the Marvel Super Hero Squad will be entering a new arena of entertainment.  Upper Deck and Gazillion/Amazing Society will be teaming up to release them as a Trading Card Game that will be played on tables all over the world.  Usually things like this start in the comic books.  Not this time.

The Super Hero Squad actually began as a line of toys.  Two-inch action figures, to be exact.  The super-deformed Chibi versions of Marvel’s most beloved myths were born in handheld PVC plastic.  Then they got their own cartoon, followed by an online MMORPG, and now the most glorious incarnation imaginable.

What a long strange trip it’s has been.  Soon we will be flipping the Marvel Super Hero Squad in cardboard.
