In ENRAGES me (see what I did there) that the Enraged! player card had an overall negative response from the community, with a good deal of people giving it sad faces on our community pool in the Marvel Champions Facebook group.

But fear not fellow appreciators of the Rage, Sam’s has gone and done a deck featuring this card, and shown that it can be to put use!
