What are the best Marvel Snap cards?

One of the best things about Second Dinner’s superhero title is that there aren’t really any standouts for the best Marvel Snap cards. There are plenty of powerful cards, don’t get me wrong, but because of how the mechanics work in Marvel Snap, one location might make your card unstoppable, while another might make it the thing that loses you the game. Still, we do have some recommendations for the best cards from each archetype, and you can check them out below.

If you don’t know, all of the Marvel Snap cards are currently split into five pools. Pools essentially equate to rarity, with pool one cards gifted to you early in the game, up to pool five cards that either cost a whole lot of collectors tokens – 6,000, to be precise – or require some serious luck to find in collector’s caches.
