Black Canary in Deck-Building Expansion

Cryptozoic is the publisher of the popular DC Comics Deck Building Game!

At the latest Gen Con, the company announced the release of their first expansion set: Heroes Unite.  Where the original game allowed gamers to play as the seven heroes from the New 52 Justice League, the new set introduces a different, somewhat surprising lineup.

Now players can have fun with Shazam!, Nightwing, Batgirl, Hawkman, Booster Gold, Red Tornado, and Black Canary.
Bleeding Cool broke the news on their site with some interesting details.  And being Bleeding Cool, they got half the story months ago and jumped to a wrong conclusion.  They originally thought this lineup was a new Justice League International.

I don't know why they would be, but this lineup would make a really fun team to read.  Nightwing and Batgirl are Batman surrogates.  Shazam! is your Superman.  Black Canary, Hawkman, and Red Tornado represent the iconic satellite era.  And Booster Gold… is popular, I guess.
