Last Friday, I posted a titanic article on the Atlantis keyword in anticipation of the just-released Brightest Day Action Pack featuring Aquaman. Early in it, I listed all the tournament-legal maps containing water terrain. But I didn’t know the Brightest Day map would also contain water on both sides! The Crater has a small 3×3 […]

Now, with Web of Spider-Man, original members Chase Stein, Gertrude Yorkes & Old Lace, Karolina […]

Huh. I was certain I hit “Publish” on that Runaways article I promised for last week, but it didn’t happen, I guess. Now it’s time for another Monday mod article, so the Runaways will have to wait until Tuesday. WINTER SOLDIER (Avengers) Nice that they painted him in his Bucky costume colors. The trouble with […]
