Waddingtons: Marvel Heroes Playing Cards by Winning Moves

These playing cards were produced by Winning Moves UK Ltd. under the trademark Waddingtons in 2008. The deck is dedicated to Marvel Heroes.

Marvel Worldwide, Inc. (commonly referred to as Marvel Comics) is an American company that publishes comic books and related media. Marvel started in 1939 as Timely Publications (founded by the pulp magazine publisher Martin Goodman) and by the early 1950s had generally become known as Atlas Comics. Marvel’s modern incarnation dates from 1961 – the year that the company launched Fantastic Four and other superhero titles created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, and many others. Marvel counts among its characters such well-known properties as Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor, Captain America, and Daredevil; antagonists such as the Green Goblin, Magneto, Doctor Doom, Galactus, Thanos, and the Red Skull. Most of Marvel’s fictional characters operate in a single reality known as the Marvel Universe, also known as Earth-616, with locations that mirror real-life cities such as New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.

On August 31, 2009, The Walt Disney Company announced a deal to acquire Marvel Entertainment (Marvel Comics’ parent corporation).

The deck: 52 playing cards + 2 identical Jokers + 2 Ad cards. Bridge size. The deck is printed on casino cardboard with smooth finish.

Bēhance: Bicycle Gods of Mythology Deck by Marci Brinker

Former “Mythical Gods Card Deck”

I’ve always had an interest in mythology and I have also wanted to create my own playing card designs for a long time, so I made this set as a personal project. I chose to keep the general look and colors of traditional playing cards, but did stylize them and a few additional colors for aesthetic reasons.” ~ Marci Brinker
