Marvel Dice Masters: Iron Man and War Machine Starter Set – Iron Manor

iron-manor-celestial-slayerThis February sees the newest release for WizKidsDice Masters, Marvel Dice Masters: Iron Man and War Machine Starter Set. The first starter set has an Iron Man focus introducing new mechanics.

I’ll be reviewing a card a day until the whole set is completed and then general thoughts on the whole set. But, beyond discussing the cards and how they fit into the Dice Masters game, I’ll also focus on the characters themselves and if the card reflects their comic history.

Up today is Iron Manor which makes its debut in the Dice Masters game.

Comic origin: In this world of Marvel the Inhumans have released the Terrigen Mists across the world. Tony Stark, fearing what he might become, has sealed himself up into the Iron Manor to prevent a possible mutation.

Earth X imagines a dystopian future for the Marvel Universe where every single person on the planet has superpowers

Live action version: None

 

Iron Man: Celestial Slayer

Card playability: I like this card a lot. For playing an all Iron Man team, this one has potential. First, there’s Suit up, which allows you to field this character die much quicker than having to put it in your bag. Next, it gains +1A and +1D for each other, different active Iron Man character. That’s potentially an awesome punch.

Then there’s the global to be able to field another Iron Man character die for 1 less!

That’s a whole lot of Iron Man coming at you.

Card vs. Comic: It fits pretty well considering Tony Stark sent a wave of Iron Men out to do battle.

 

Iron Manor: Earth X

Card playability: A cheaper version of the above without the ability to gain as far the attack and defense.

Card vs. Comic: It fits pretty well considering Tony Stark sent a wave of Iron Men out to do battle.

Iron Man: Hermetically Sealed

Card playability: Also similar to the above two. The difference here is that you get the +1A and +1D but don’t get the global ability.

Card vs. Comic: It fits pretty well considering Tony Stark sent a wave of Iron Men out to do battle and working together.

Final Thoughts: I actually like all three versions of these cards. The concept is really cool and their various functions make me want to build an Iron Man team to see how it does. Out of all of the cards in the set, these three really intrigue me and have me thinking through what’s possible out of the Iron Man affiliation.
