“That’s the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.”
–Kang, The Last Avengers Story
Prepare yourselves, mortal heroes! You have been tested before by the likes of Green Goblin or the Wrecking Crew, and you’ll soon be able to take on Hydra with The Rise of Red Skull campaign expansion. But you have never faced a villain with the futuristic technology, awe-inspiring intellect, and time-altering powers of Kang the Conqueror!
Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce The Once and Future Kang, a new scenario pack for Marvel Champions: The Card Game!
Few villains have challenged you in the same way as the indomitable Kang. You’ll face Kang in the present day and across the multifarious timestreams, battling his incarnations through the centuries in a scenario that’s unlike any other. With expert versions of Kang to swap in if you’re looking for a greater challenge and three modular encounter sets that you can pull into this scenario or any other, The Once and Future Kang promises to push you and your fellow heroes to their limits.
Battle Across Time
In any scenario, the villain that you face and your friends by your side have been the constant factors. No matter where your battle takes place or what treacherous schemes are thrown in your direction, you can count on having your fellow heroes battling alongside you as you work together to KO the villain as quickly as possible. But you have never faced a villain quite like Kang before.
Kang does not reveal his temporal powers immediately—in fact, for the first stage, you face a relatively straightforward brawl against Kang the Conqueror (The Once and Future Kang, 1). Though he may lead the assault with Future Weapons (The Once and Future Kang, 15) and a Temporal Shield (The Once and Future Kang, 14), at least you know what to expect.
Everything changes once you beat Kang’s first stage, however. Reeling back, The Master of Time (The Once and Future Kang, 8A) uses his powers to separate the heroes across time and space! One hero may be thrown into The Chronopolis (The Once and Future Kang, 9B), while another hero falls through dimensions to The Realm of Rama-Tut (The Once and Future Kang, 11B). For every hero, you’ll be drawn into your own play area and dimension. In every dimension, a new version of Kang waits for that hero—whether it’s Kang as Iron Lad (The Once and Future Kang, 3), the Scarlet Centurion (The Once and Future Kang, 5), or some other iteration of the villain.
Pushing forward, as soon as a hero defeats Kang in their own time and space, they join another game area, teaming up with another hero to defeat Kang in that game area! Only once the heroes are all back together will they be able to return to the present day and begin their final showdown against Kang the Conqueror.
Throughout the scenario, Kang will use his Temporal powers to weaken the heroes, calling on oppressive obligations, ranging from Stolen Memories (The Once and Future Kang, 19) to Depowered (The Once and Future Kang, 20). Three modular encounter sets, which can be added into this scenario or any other scenario, add even more replayability options. You may find yourself battling against a Tyrannosaurus Rex (The Once and Future Kang, 32) that’s been unleashed in Central Park. Kang can haunt you in any scenario with the Master of Time modular set, or if you’re really looking for a challenge, you could even test yourself against the full might of Kang’s personal guard, the Anachronauts.
A New Villain Rises
There’s a new villain on the way for Marvel Champions: The Card Game, and it may be the greatest adversity your heroes have yet faced. It’s a fight across time for the future of mankind… and all other possible futures! Do you have what it takes to defeat Kang?
