Welcome to Critical Encounters, a podcast about Marvel Champions, a Living Card Game by Fantasy Flight Games. Here we take a good look at that most critical piece of the game, the Encounter Sets. We’ll discuss those poorly understood characters, unfairly labeled Villains, and their various plans to shape humanity and benefit the planet, as well as those so-called heroes intent on thwarting them.

Critical Encounters, a weekly podcast about Marvel Champions the LCG, focuses on taking a look at encounter cards and sets all from the villain's perspective. That means we are going to focus in on those 'bad guy cards' as if we were the villains. Its a focused look on that other half of the game.
