Do I Need Every Hero Pack Expansion to Play Marvel Champions?

No, you never need buy any expansion beyond Marvel Champions’ core game. All of these expansions listed here need the core game to be played. Most of the new heroes and characters are not necessarily too different or too powerful compared to the old ones.

They are mostly developed to connect with fans who wish to play Marvel Champions with the characters they like best. This is why Fantasy Flight Games releases all of these expansions separately and allows players to buy whichever expansions they like best.

If you are a completionist and prefer to have every single Hero Pack, you can go ahead and do just that. We recommend taking a look at the other expansions that are available, however. It’s not all Hero Packs.

Where Do I Find New Heroes for Marvel Champions Besides Hero Packs?

New heroes are also available through Campaign Expansions for Marvel Champions. You will find different heroes in some of the big boxes that introduce many new villains and cards, as well as some mechanics. The game’s first Campaign Expansion, The Rise of Red Skull, features Hawkeye and Spider-Woman as ready heroes with pre-construed decks.

Marvel Champions Campaign Expansions

Marvel Champions has been expanding the available scenarios and villains to fight in the game, bringing individual Campaign Expansions that feature new villains. There have been five new Campaign Expansions so far, including:

Each of these campaigns features new challenges and foes to brave in a combat that will often put the fate of the universe or the planet in the balance. Each of these campaigns has been a tremendous success with fans. Here is what Campaign Expansions you can pick today for your Marvel Champions, and where to get them.

Do I Buy Every Marvel Champions Campaign?

Unlike the Hero Packs, the Marvel Champions Campaign Expansions are actually a lot of fun, they bring you fresh encounters to enjoy and explore, and new challenges to overcome. While buying each and every one is not mandatory, there is value in each box you scoop up. If you prefer, you can sell some of your old Campaign Expansions to try a new one. All in all, it will come down to personal preference.

Marvel Champions Scenario Packs

Marvel Champions Scenario Packs are another way to expand the game and what you can do in it. The Scenario Packs usually introduce new villains, but along with that, new environments, scenarios, and objectives to the game. They allow players to try besting a previously unseen opponent and are a way to keep the game fresh.

Fantasy Flight Games also frequently uses Scenario Packs to introduce new Player and Hero cards and even gameplay mechanics, which makes the game a lot of fun. There are so far six Marvel Champions Scenario Packs available. We discuss them below:
