    Anyone want to help fill out a list of recommended reads for these characters? A lot of more casual fans like the idea of the game but don't really know much about the characters in the stretch goals. I know who they are, but haven't read much for a lot of them. So I'm looking to identify 2-3 iconic/important/essential stories/series/arcs/runs for each character to recommend to people.

    Feral
    Polaris - Peter David x factor starting with 71, all new xfactor (2014) Peter david, uncanny x-men 475-486
    Strong guy -
    Boom boom - xforce by Hopeless (2012)
    Long shot - Longshot mini series 1985, uncanny xmen annual 10 1986 and continuing til 248, xfactor 35 - Nov 2008
    Dazzler
    Sunspot
    Magik - Magik the 80s series, x-infernus, inferno, new mutants (2010 version but I guess any would do)
    Firestar
    Warpath - x men v4, x-force v2
    Phoenix (Rachel summers) - rise and fall of the shiar empire?
    Sunfire - uncanny avengers
    Wolfsbane
    Blink
    Havok
    Fantom - reminder uncanny xforce
    Captain Britain
    Multiple man - Peter David xfactor
    Weapon x
    Pixie - Fraction's uncanny x-men
    Doop
    X-23
    Mirage
    Kitty pryde - Wolverine and Kitty Pryde, Whedon's astounding...wouldn't really put her in the more obscure pile, but I just copied from the kickstarter list.

    Legion - Careys Xmen v2 featured him I think. And Spurrier's Legion series.
    Namur- gillen uncanny xmen, Hickman's New Avengers maybe.

    I wasn't at all a fan of the X-Factor figure or write up they had for her either. Hopefully they get to another iteration.

    They added Old Man Logan! Wow. My favorite version of the character ever. Nice.

    Quick question: do these figures come colored/painted or do you have to paint them yourself like those Crisis Protocol figurines?

    They just come in the basic colors (blue: hero, red: villain, purple: anti-hero). So they'd need to be painted.

    Latest reveals and moving into the final stretch:
    Northstar
    Snowbird
    Onslaught
    Sasquatch (in progress)

    Avalanche, Sasquatch, Nightcrawler, and Super Skrull added. Cloak and Dagger in progress. With the FF in, there's now a lot of yammering for Galactus in this X-Men game. XD

    Avalanche, mah love. I'm a little sad he can't replace Toad with the Brotherhood people, but whatevs. He's in the game and I'm def gonna use him. I love the 1vAll mode they added where you can take over as the villain and kill your friends.

    The campaign just ended with $5,988,089, which is INSANE for a board game Kickstarter.

    If nothing else, even if you hate the art style, this shows that the X-Men brand is still going stronger than ever. This game beat out the original which focused on the MCU, plus is on the top 10 most funded board games of all time. No small feat. I love it.

    Heartening to see! Some of that boost was likely because of the re-issues of the original base game, but the X-Men were holding their own!
