A Guide To The Marvel 2022 Fleer Ultra Avengers Release

2022 fleer ultra marvel

The Avengers assemble for this premium card release from Fleer. Read on to learn all the key information about this new Marvel trading card release.

2022 Fleer Ultra Avengers basics

The long-running relationship between Fleer and Marvel makes a comeback with Ultra Avengers. Ultra is the premium product from Fleer, utilizing higher quality card stock than typical Fleer cards.

This year is the first Ultra release under the Avengers name, but there’s a long history of Ultra Marvel sets dating back to when Fleer was owned by Marvel.

Some notable examples of past sets include 1994 Ultra X-Men and 1997 Ultra Spider-Man. Fleer being purchased by Upper Deck in 2005 proved quite disruptive to the collaboration between the two brands, but they now return with a fresh take on superhero cards.

Final thoughts on 2022 Fleer Ultra Avengers

Marvel and the Avengers are one of the strongest brands on Earth, so a branded release named after them isn’t too surprising. The execution of this release remains to be seen, especially with the appearance of beautiful hand-drawn artwork superposed over generic digital backgrounds.

It’s a necessary evil for sports sets or releases that use actual photos, but it was entirely avoidable here. Seeing backgrounds that worked better with the artwork would have been refreshing to see.

Overall, this seems like an intriguing product for big comic book or Marvel fans, but remains to be seen how it’s perceived by the public.
