Some very nice sculpts, and solid stats for the points, it's just that following other Avengers themed sets, and Avengers: Age of Ultron the previous year, Avengers were getting a bit tiresome. 

Personally I enjoyed the figures at the time but have used very few of them since.   Favourite figures from the set were Venom and Taskmaster and the prize figures Spider-Man and Namor. 

It was also great to see She-Hulk and Speedfreek in the set.  Other fun characters include Punisher and Jester.

First appearance: Daredevil #42 (July 1968)

The original Jester was Jonathan Powers, a criminal who was primarily an opponent of Daredevil. A trained acrobat he uses an arsenal of joke-themed weapons.

First appearance Cloak and Dagger vol. 3 #8 (November, 1989)

The second Jester is Jody Putt, a fan of super villains who obtained the costume of Jester after he retired. He has no special powers but uses weaponry and robots originally created by Doctor Doom.

I was Avengers'd-out on Heroclix before this set came out, and the film wasn't that great either.  Aside from the multitude of Ultron Drones characters selection wasn't great, but there were a couple of fun pieces like M.O.D.A.M.  Jocaster is a great Entity for Robots, but the Super-Rare Ultons were over-powered.

My biggest use of this set now is using the 30pt Ultron Drone as a Vehicle pilot.
