The Multiverse of Miniatures Games – A Marvel HeroClix: Marvel Studios’ What If…? Miniatures Game Review

I’m still chuckling at the absurd length of both the game’s and this article’s title. However, it fits with the way the MCU has slammed together sequels and crossovers with reckless abandon.

You finish a scenario, possibly shredding the components, and you toss it out in the garbage like a dream you’ve forgotten before…
