Fantasy Comic League: April 2017 – Preview

Marvel’s biggest secret will be revealed in April! How will the rest of the Marvel universe react when they learn of Steve Roger’s treacherous ways? Nick Spencer’s next chapter in Captain Hydra kicks off with Secret Empire #0 and the Avengers, Champions and Defenders must face down a trusted friend. Spinning out of IvX, the Inhumans and X-Men have a new status quo. New teams are formed on both sides, including the Royals, the return of the Blue and Gold X-Men teams, and a new Weapon X group. The Guardians of the Galaxy are no longer grounded forcing the cosmic heroes to rethink their place on Earth. Black Panther’s Crew gets their own series and a new hero takes center stage in the World of Wakanda.

Best of luck to both divisions of the Fantasy Comic League: #Midtown and #Wakanda. Power rulings and definitions have been revised based on participants’ review in the previous month. Please see the attached Power Summary file for further power clarifications. Please follow along with our #FantasyComicLeague tweets on our Twitter for official power scoring and discussions. Seasons run for four months, stay tuned for your chance to join the official league and win a trade paperback of your choice!

These appearance estimates, based on comic solicitations and cover artwork provided by the Marvel Database wiki, are meant as a guideline and not an indication of a specific draft order. Character names, team designations and power sets conform to the most current information provided by the Database. Power designations are simplified for easier classification and choice, providing the majority of the heroes with 9 to 11 eligible powers from which to choose. As a reminder, you may only have one hero per team designation on your roster and are allowed to select three powers from the heroes’ power set. Powers in (parenthesis) are a subset of the overall ability and can be selected as well as the generic use of that power. For example, Deadpool can be drafted as any of his four team classifications and can use Weapons, Blades and Guns as his three powers (Blades and Guns being a subset of the overall Weapons skill).
