    Besides the Dead & Gone card Heroine Addict posted, I can see on eBay that Jean is heavily represented in the cards. There is Phoenix in the Super Heroes section, Dark Phoenix in the Super Villains section, Jean Grey in 'the 92 insert subset, Phoenix in the Metal Blasters insert subset, Dark Phoenix in the Stax subset, several sketch cards, and several cards in the Buyback subset (like Jean Grey, the Wedding of Cyclops & Jean Grey, Spring Break Scott & Jean).

    With each box only yielding 72 cards, you'll have to buy at least 3 boxes to even have a long shot of collecting all 150 cards... Slimy move Marvel/ Fleer. No one is going to invest $11+ a pack. They knew people would rather buy a whole box rather than burn their money on individual packs.

    And the scalping begins lol; https://www.ebay.com/i/292634010354?chn=ps

    Probably a really good place to unload some singles. But dang... $10-12 a pack? And thats not making a profit. Just to stay in the black retailers are going to have to maintain that price unless they get boxes for half of what the consumer pays. i don't think $2.00 is a good enough profit margin for any business.

    No because back in '92 we could find a pack at the local drugstore or supermarket and actually afford them. -_-

    Only 1 double out of the whole box. There are so many different subsets which is going to make it difficult to complete......the cards are super thick! I remember in the mid 90’s, Marvel had a set that was thick. But these are even thickerer

    Yes there is fin. Just like the 1994 series. A really brief bio, and power description, real name, and group affiliation. Costume choices are so random. Range from classic to modern.

    I’m satisfied with the set and hope they continue next year. Just at a different price point I hope.

    I was very excited when these were announced! Since the comics can't give me what I need, I have had to turn to action figures and statues. And I was going to add trading cards back to that list. However, once I saw the braindead STUPID decision to very deliberately lock out many potential buyers by charging such a ridiculous price per pack/box, that very quickly changed. Then to only have 6 cards per pack and 12 packs per box?! Outrageous!! Not to mention the inexcusable absence of Gambit (even in the "X-Men '92" subset) and Nightcrawler (even Apocalypse), I have been forced to give a very passionate middle finger to both Marvel and Fleer on these baffling decisions. With the prices they are charging, I expect perfection. Missing two key members is one of the most insane self-sabotaging practices I have seen a company do. Why on Earth would I want to pay an absurd price for something that will never be able to be "completed"? The glaring omission of Gambit in just the "'92" subset would be too distracting to find any joy in it. It's crazy that I could afford and collect these cards much easier as a kid with no job. I will MAYBE get the two Rogue cards since they both featured her iconic uniform, but that is as far as I can go. I really wanted to see this set do well to encourage future sets, but I can/will not defend Marvel, Fleer nor anyone involved in the insulting marketing of these cards. Maybe instead of printing these cards on priceless ground-up moon rocks, they should have just printed them on normal cardstock so that many more people who need to eat and pay bills could still afford to collect them. What a crazy concept, right?!?
