Marvel Comics Creates New Trading Cards Packs For Heroes Reborn

For reasons unknown to most, the recent boom in sports card sales has carried over into comic book trading cards from the nineties. Comic book trading cards, once collected and speculated upon, saw the bottom fall out of the market in the noughties. But now, those values are on the rise again. A full box with 36 packs of the first Marvel Universe trading cards from 1990 just sold on eBay for $2500. A factory sealed series 3 box sold for $1375. And a sealed Marvel Masterworks trading card box from 1992 sold for just under a grand.

So, when Marvel Comics was wanting to create a promotion for the launch of Heroes Reborn #1 in May, why not go for trading cards again? Retailers will get a free pack of 25 Heroes Reborn trading card packs in May, and can also order additional packs. I get the feeling that quite a few might, moreso than they might otherwise order of other promotional items right now. And, with Heroes Reborn comics having trading card variant covers, what are the betting these will be the cards that are given away with the launch of the comic?

A WORLD WITHOUT AVENGERS!

Welcome to a world where Tony Stark never built an Iron Man armor. Where Thor is a hard-drinking atheist who despises hammers. Where Wakanda is dismissed as a myth. And where Captain America was never found in the ice because there were no Avengers to find him. Instead this world has always been protected by Earth's Mightiest Heroes, the Squadron Supreme of America. And now the Squadron faces an attack from some of their fiercest enemies, like Dr. Juggernaut, the Black Skull, the Silver Witch and Thanos with his Infinity Rings. But why is the Daywalker Blade the one man alive who seems to remember that the entire world has somehow been…reborn?
