The wait is almost over. Upper Deck’s Marvel Super Hero Squad is about to explode onto the deckbuilding scene. Today we will dive into some of the most exciting cards from the online game, and then announce two of the featured regional game centers that will be holding pre-release tournaments on April 21st.

Take the Leap of Faith with us. The Marvel Universe is returning to the TCG scene with a boisterous belly laugh and a thrilling new game.

If you have the Eternal Thirst for collectible card games featuring the coolest myths on Earth, you will not be able to resist. Blade has the hunger. His theme allows strategy decks to be created with massive healing powers. When you add this card, he also drains the opponent in big gulps. Yum.

One of the major game mechanics in the Marvel Super Hero squad game rewards players who play with mulitple Keepers. The Big Bang brings its bonus by going solo. Explosive potential.

The potential of the Super Hero Squad Trading Card Game is unlimited, much like the power level of Rogue’s new eyes. You will be able to enjoy the deep strategy and delicious luck factor on cardboard in less than three weeks. If you want to experience the ability to beatdown a deranged deck of Marvel characters before the rest of the world, you can attend a pre-release tournament on April 21st. You can learn the game on the spot, and be one of the first to dive into the game.

Today we are announcing the two exclusive regional events on the East coast. Tommorrow we will announce the locations for the rest of the country. Our playgroup from Miami will be traveling to Orlando in a quest to become one of the first Champions of the game, and we will be publishing tournament reports from all the regional events. We hope to see you there!
