The damage icon is a clear indication that Wolverine is going to be coming in the future.
Cosmic radiation, you say? That sounds Fantastic to me.
As for scientific alteration, there have been a number of genetically modified characters – Spider-Woman, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch all spring to mind.
“Devastating wave of destructive energy.” Hmm. That might be a generic description, but there’s one character that is called to my mind:
New worlds never seen in comics? Well how about in movies or TV shows?
We’ve seen the Skrull crisis, but escaped prisoners? Could be a scenario about a break out from the Vault or the Raft. Bendis’ Breakout storyline (New Avengers Vol 11, issues 1-6) might be the inspiration for a crisis.
We’ve already got the gamma shelters, but another secure scenarios with an entrance to a secret lab? Could be Hydra or A.I.M., or maybe Weapon X!
Avengers and Cabal were in the core set, and Defenders were confirmed at GAMA to to lead by Doctor Strange, so we can expect Dark Illuminati! Yes! Can’t wait for that one!
Not a spoiler any more but Thanos gets a nod here. And, you know, Superman.
Did you spot any more that I missed? Let me know!
Edit- some of you suggested I look in the Learn to Play rules. There were a few more hidden there!
Some extra text here – tears in the fabric of the multiverse. Sounds Strange to me – better call a Doctor.
Mentions of Carnage and Kingpin!
