Default Major characters missing from Munchkin Marvel/Xemn + expansions

I am thinking about creating some custom cards to fill in the gaps, mainly Fantastic Four since they aren't there due to licensing issues id imagine. Anyone got ideas for others or what I can do? Id have to find a high quality back template too I guess for them.

Just noticed my title typo, whoops

So my list for missing major characters are:

Annihilus
Galactus
The Watchers (could be any style of card)
Apocalypse (can't believe he's not in Munchkin Xmen)
Dr Doom
Silver Surfer
Ultimate Nullifier (item)
Sentry
Adam Warlock? (Maybe, I dunno, just threw him in there)
Fantastic Four
Franklin Richards (again could just be a level up card etc)
Namor (surprised he isnt in base set as we have his kit/Atlantis)
Skrulls/Super Skrull
Doombot (lvl 1 enemy)
War Machine (have his kit, no char)
Night Crawler (fan fave)

Most are obviously tied to the Fantastic Four licence so that explains why they do not appear but some of the others do surprise me.

I'm probably not the only one to appreciate your enthusiasm, but I have to ask that you do not share your card ideas on this or any other SJG forum. To be perfectly clear, it's fine for you and others to discuss characters that you feel are missing, but don't share text or images of your card ideas here. It's against our policies for multiple reasons.

Perhaps if enough people request card blanks, you could then add whatever "important" characters you want. Surely the printing process produces some? It's likely to only be very slightly less expensive to make, using a little less ink, so there'd have to be high demand I imagine...

I don't think USAopoly has produced blanks for Marvel (or any of their sets). The printing process doesn't produce blanks unless you request them.

I also don't think demand for blanks is nearly as high as you think. In our experience, the vast majority of players are content to play with the cards already written.

Since I managed to attract the big guns to this thread, are you able to share if there is anymore official marvel/X-Men munchkin content on the horizon? May save me going down this path :)

Nothing planned as far as I know.

Card sleeves are a good way to add in cards, blank or otherwise, with different backs. SJ Games even makes Munchkin specific ones.

I asked and this is true, they do not produce blanks on any of their sets
