Asgard, home of the Asgardians and one of the Nine Realms is facing an ancient and awakening threat! A vengeful and nefarious mastermind, Hela, wants the throne for herself! Battling alongside Thor are some of Asgard's greatest champions! Defeating Hela will be no easy task. They will need all their strength as well as some mighty artifacts. Will you prove yourself worthy and harness the power of Thor's mighty hammer, Mjolnir or the trusty axe, Stormbreaker? Add this set full of valiant heroes to your Legendary experience!

Heroes of Asgard contains 100 cards and a rulebook. It will retail at $19.99.

As for Webheads:

Webheads will contain 55 cards and a rulebook. This release will retail for $14.99.
