For over 75 years Marvel Comics have been dazzling their readers with astonishing tales and incredible characters. Over that time some characters have changed costumes, shape, and even gender, but under it all they are the same person. The Uniqueness rule of Vs System® 2PCG® limits players to having only one copy of a character on their board at one time.
Even when characters change teams, sides, or their codenames, the person under the mask is still the same. The AKA rule of the Vs System® 2PCG®: A-Force set gave the same one character limitation, for characters like Phoenix / Dark Phoenix and Captain Marvel / Ms. Marvel.

Sharing of mantles can also occur across multiple universes. The same rules for sharing mantles still apply.
