With Superama, all bases can link together in any sequence, so kids can “lock” in their desired story – Hero vs Villain, a Villain in cahoots with another Villain, or, in the case of Marvel: an Avengers Heroes vs. Villains super bash! The “backboards” printed with dynamic Marvel comic book scenes slide in and out, so kids can reshuffle the deck by placing Hulk into Spider-Man’s NYC alleyway among any number of re-imaginings. These added innovations are a new way to refresh “your” story, keeping fans’ imagination pulled into new MARVEL narratives and face-offs at will. Dimensions are 6.5-inches by 5.75-inches by 5.5-inches. The first offering is starting off with a bang with Marvel Classic comic book favorites Iron Man, Gamora, Thanos, Thor, Spider-Man, and The Incredible Hulk.
