Best thing for fanboys, man, especially with the new DC figures almost out.
I'm not even all that into comics, I just love the game for it's simplicity, some of the crazy things that happen (Wolverine iced Dr. Strange in one shot a few weeks ago, friggin' hilarious) and the Shield agents' bent guns.

Please explain. Sounds like something I'd be into.

Oh, it's great!
You can pick up a starter pack for about 30$ (canadian) that has a game mat/board grid thing, rules and four miniatures. After that you can pick up booster packs for 12$ that have four miniatures each in them.
The miniatures are little models of Marvel comics characters. The game's called Heroclix because their base displays all their stats, and when they take damage, you rotate the bottom of the base by however many "clicks" of damage you took, and it displays your new values. Most people get weaker as they take damage, but take the Incredible Hulk, he gets stronger and stronger the more angry he gets. Also, a lot of the time people will get different powers as they take damage (Wolverine's regeneration doesn't pop up until he's almost dead)
