When Steve Rogers was deemed too frail to enlist during World War II, he took part in a secret government program to transform him into the worlds first Super-Soldier. With the help of a revolutionary serum, Rogers emerged from the experiment as the embodiment of physical perfection. Now in peak condition, Rogers served as a special operative and a bastion of freedom in World War II until an accident near the end of the war submerged him in ice for decades. Discovered by the Avengers in the modern era, Captain America continues to fight for the American Dream. A man out of time, but never out of courage.

Like all Hero Packs, the Captain America Hero Pack includes a fully-playable deck right out of the box that includes 15 Hero cards, 17 cards from the Leadership aspect, and 8 basic cards. Additionally, look for Captain Americas signature obligation and nemesis set, and three copies of one new card for each of the other aspects! This deck brings Captain America to the forefront of the action with his trusty shield, as he assists the heroes around him while calling on new Avengers to join the fight!
Marvel Champions has been getting a lot of buzz recently. Fantasy Flight Games (FFG) seem to be supporting their latest living card game with expansions and new card packs. As a huge fan of the game and the IP I am very excited about this. One of these new packs is Captain America hero pack which I will talk about in more detail here. If you want to read more about the base game then check out the review here.
Captain America, the patriotic American hero, equipped with his iconic vibranium shield, he is ready to lead the fight against the Marvel Villains. The Captain America hero pack is a new playable hero that can be added in to the base game of Marvel Champions. Straight out of the pack is a pre-constructed deck with 15 hero cards, 17 Leadership aspect cards and 8 basic cards. As with the other Heroes Captain America comes with his own obligation and nemesis set. The pack also contains three identical additional cards for the other aspects in the game as well as three identical basic cards.
Captain America was never my favourite cinematic hero, that title goes to Iron Man. But I am loving playing the pre-constructed hero deck. It is so much fun and feels very thematic. Captain America also plays differently to the other heroes and FFG have continued to create unique feeling characters that are thematically tied to their cinematic counterpart.
His Hero action allows players to discard a card from their hand to ready Captain America (once per round) allowing him to do double actions in a round. The Shield block card can negate all damage dealt by exhausting the card. And probably my favourite card in the whole game is Captain America's shield toss. This is a hero action (attack) which allows you to discard X cards from your hand to deal 4 damage to X enemies and return Captain America's shield (an upgrade card) to your hand. I just see myself throwing the shield, knocking out some enemies and the catching the shield ready to go again. Feels so good and very "Captain America".
The Captain America hero pack is another great addition to the core game. The pre-constructed deck is great straight out of the pack but can also be used to deck build your own custom deck. To top it off it is a super fun deck to play with.
