Though we got a look at the first wave earlier this year, it seems Hasbro was waiting for Toy Fair 2014 to reveal its fuller plans for the 3.75" Marvel Infinite line. Previously known as the Marvel Universe line, Marvel Infinite will deliver scads of comic book style superheroes and supervillains across an initial three waves in 2014. Wave one will deliver The Wasp, "Marvel Now" Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, The Grim Reaper and Hyperion. Wave two will include re-issues of Beta Ray Bill, Yellowjacket and Steve Rogers, plus all-new versions of Death's Head, Red She-Hulk, Thor and Whirlwind. As for wave three? It's not fully fleshed out yet, but so far looks to include Ares, Deathlok (the rad zombie cyborg one, not the handsome Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. one and an Ionic Wonderman. We'll have more images of these toys in the wild later when we visit the Hasbro installation at Toy Fair, but for now you can see official product images of all three waves -- including some carded images -- after the cut.
Q: Do Superman-esque characters like The Sentry or Blue Marvel work in the Marvel Universe? -- @SuperSeth64
A: You know, Seth, this is one of those questions that seems really simple when you first look at it. I mean, it's a yes or no question, so the short answer is about as short as it can possibly be. The thing is, the reasoning behind that answer has to do with how entire shared fictional universes work and how they've been influencing each other for the past 50 to 70 years, and how one character in particular has defined an entire genre that came to dominate the medium, so for the long answer, well, I hope you've got a few minutes.
If you don't, here's the short answer: No. No they do not.

Hasbro's got not just one, but two different Ultimate Spider-Man action figures in the pipeline at its signature 6" and 3.75" scales. While the first thing you might notice is that the figures are built a little bit more like a full-grown hero than the young Miles Morales, Hasbro has made the distinction that the 3.75" ve
