Produced by Marvel Entertainment in 2001, the 'ReCharge Collectible Card Game' is a trading card game based on Marvel Superheroes. Released after the Wizards of the Coast X-Men Trading Card Game, this game never took off, possibly due to its extremely simple mechanics, or its use of art borrowed from comics. It was subsumed by UpperDeck's Vs. System, which is still the torch-bearer as the main Marvel TCG.

Product releases

2 sets of Recharge were released, simply called Series 1 (aka "Inaugural Edition") and Series 2. However, the cards between the sets are almost identical.
