    We've had ten "superheros fighting supervillains" tables already with another 4 to come...that is the same theme with different outfits over and over
    again. I dont hate the tables or anything, and the theme was great fun to begin with but its getting pretty stale for those of us who arent particularly
    into comic books. For me a good theme will keep me going back to a table even if I am really struggling with it. I'm not saying 'please stop doing superhero tables' cos there are obviously a lot of people that like them. I'm just asking if we can have a more varied mix of themes - around 40% of all
    tables having the same theme seems a bit much to me.

If Zen wants to continue with big name comic book characters, they should acquire an Image Comics or DC license and give us a Spawn table or Superman table (a Justice League task force theme would be so much more preferable to an Avengers theme). They should acquire some more video game franchise licenses too, and give us more tables based on popular fighting games like Mortal Kombat. It's been a long time since that Street Fighter table was made.

    It may help you find good Dr Strange titles by looking for "Strange Tales" which was the title that first introduced Stephen Strange. He didn't get his own title for a long time, and that had a short run. The best were from the early eighties/late seventies; thick on story and colorful splashes, although a little light on action.

    Hells Yeah

    Aside from the greatest spaghetti western ever (Fistful of Dollars is close).... the real reason I'm speaking up is just to reiterate something:

    The only reason I got into Zen pinball was the original Marvel tables. I've been hooked ever since, and will purchase all tables no matter the theme anyway, but as a true Marvel fan I will love any and all new Marvel tables.

    That said, the overall "theme" of superhero vs. villain could get to be a bit "long-in-the-tooth". There is no other theme that comes close to being as heavily represented as the Marvel theme so its understandable for fans of the PINBALL to grow weary.

    (no stamford multiball for civil war table; its a solomn event)

I think there are still enough "untouched" heros that would be great themes for a unique table (Dr. Strange, Punisher, Cloak & Dagger.. for example). So I'm hoping that Zen continious to create some Marvel tables besides some other themed ones. Of course Tron and Castlevania would be tables that i'm definitly looking forward to.
    Just keep up the great work and quality Zen!
