Each player starts with his or her own basic 10-card deck and draws a hand of 5 cards each turn. Power is the currency you will use to buy new, stronger cards to add to your deck. The goal of a deck-building game is to craft your personal deck into a well-oiled machine. There are five different types of cards that can be acquired: Villains, Heroes, Equipment, Super Powers, and Locations.
A large, central stack of cards supplies a five-card "Line-Up" from which players make their purchases. Each player will always have five face-up cards to choose from each turn, so every turn there are new options and surprises.
When a player has amassed enough Power, he or she may defeat the current Super-Villain. When a Super-Villain is defeated, a new one appears and makes an Attack against each player in the game! Players can defend themselves with Defense cards like The Batsuit, Super Speed, Bulletproof, or several others. In the end, the player who has accumulated the most Victory Points from the cards in his or her deck wins the game.

- Each Super Hero has a unique special ability that will open up different strategies to the player. Follow that strategy or break away with a plan of your own.
- Card combos, strategy, and fun abound in this game where every card is a well-known, fan-favorite card with amazing art.

The mechanics of the game are the basic deck building mechanics with one type of currency used for everything (purchasing cards as well as defeating super villains) so it's a great game to teach the mechanics of deck building. My only difficulty was remembering when to shuffle my discard pile because of the complexity of the conditions and how it can really impact game play if you do it at the wrong time.
The overall goal of the game is to defeat the chosen number of super-villains before the source deck runs out of cards for everyone to buy. Players can play as many cards as they have in their hands and buy as many things as their "power" total (the game's currency) allows in any given turn. This means that you can move through the deck of source cards a lot quicker than you would expect. However, I have played this game with 2, 4, and 5 players and as well as the maximum number of super-villains without coming close to running out of cards from the source deck before defeating (buying) all of the super-villains. It seems like there are just so many cards! As such, it seems this other end game condition is just one that the creators of the game included for an "in the unlikely event..." situation.
Overall, a fun game that scales well from 2-5 players including a more interactive experience when it is not your turn (due to the high number of cards with an attack aspect) than a game like Dominion. Fanboys of DC will probably love the theme although people not as familiar with the DCU might not appreciate many of the cards.

We had purchased Legendary (the card-based Marvel game) the month before, which was a lot of fun, so we decided to purchase this DC game as well since there is a HUGE Batman fan in this household. To be honest, the name isn't very inspiring, and when we opened the box, it just seemed really simple. There was no board, no dice, no figurines. Instead, there were all these cards. They were nicely printed and there were a lot of different variations. Well, turns out that this game was just as exciting, and actually offers more flexibility in the game play as Legendary (there are a ton of different playing variations if you look things up online).
We usually play between 2 - 4 players (covered by the rule book), but often my partner will just amuse himself by playing a solo game as well (look up those rules online). We also found ourselves doing impromptu games on a weekday night for the first month after we purchased the game (and yes, we actually have full-time jobs to get to the next day) The goal is to accumulate the most points (so it's more of an individual game versus Legendary, where there's no point in accumulating points unless you work as a team to defeat the villains). This can be a lot of fun when you get the right multiplier cards. I also like the special powers you get from playing a superhero. Plus, this has a pretty easy learning curve. The nice thing is that even with 4 people, you can get a whole game done within an hour.
We loved it, and we're looking forward to the expansion set!
Everyone gets a hero card to help them throughout the game. You will be facing each other, you will screw each other over, and people will buy cards that you want before it's your turn. Be ready to get competitive. =P You will attack each other and take out super villains. I have 0 complaints about this awesome game.
