Iron Man plans ahead, and has a countless number of upgrades to help him overcome the challenges that lie ahead. Mostly, these upgrades accentuate what Iron Man is already good at and capable of. The same is true of these upgrade Basic Action Cards!
Upgrade – Fortification lets you give a character die the Iron Will keyword until the end of the turn. Unfortunately, if that character isn’t a shield character, you’ll be paying 2 life to make it happen. Upgrade – Fortification is a low cost way to make your shield character dice sturdier. Better still, your opponent might not even be able to take full advantage if they want to buy this die away from you! While it doesn’t work perfectly with every version of Iron Man, it does combo nicely with War Machine: Model 11 and Space Armor Iron Man: Deep Space.
Perhaps one of the most notable features of Iron Man is his unibeam, and Upgrade – Unibeam brings that power to your team! This upgrade gives your character die +2A, which isn’t a huge effect, but if they’re a bolt character, they’ll also gain Fast. Just like Upgrade – Fortification, your opponent might have a hard time taking advantage of this card. Rescue: Resilient and Iron Manor: Earth X are two cards that this upgrade works great with.
