The Plus Ultra Smash (XR) is a highly anticipated card from the My Hero Academia League of Villains expansion pack, which was released just a few weeks ago.
The My Hero Academia CCG has taken the anime fandom by storm with its consistently great numbers, gaining a loyal fanbase eagerly waiting for the next release.
And the Plus Ultra Smash (XR) is a prime example of why. Featuring the mightiest hero of them all, All Might, this card is causing a stir in the reseller space. So, let’s figure out what makes it so sought after!
Allow me to introduce you to the one and only Toshinori Yagi, better known as the legendary All Might! This guy was once at the very top of the Pro Hero game, earning himself the title of Symbol of Peace that was recognized all across the world.
Nowadays, he’s putting his vast knowledge to good use as a teacher of Foundational Hero Studies at U.A. High School.
But here’s the kicker – he’s also got his eyes on a successor to carry on his heroic legacy. That’s where young Izuku Midoriya comes in, as All Might’s protege and the next big thing in the world of heroism. Unfortunately, after expending all his power to take down All For One, All Might had no choice but to retire from his heroic duties, bidding farewell to his status as the world’s greatest hero.
The League of villains expansion features a lot of cards featuring All Might, here are some of our favorites:
The Plus Ultra Smash (XR) card is a real knockout, showcasing All Might at his absolute peak as he unleashes his ultimate move, the Plus Ultra Smash. If you’re on the receiving end of this devastating punch, not even divine intervention could save you!
This incredible moment in the anime comes from All Might’s epic battle against his arch-nemesis, All For One.
It’s a bittersweet reminder of the Symbol of Peace’s final fight before his retirement. But let’s be real, the card looks amazing and does a great job of capturing this iconic moment!
As I’m jotting down this blog post, The Plus Ultra Smash (XR) is being sold for a whopping $15-20! That’s a pretty penny, especially when you consider the sheer number of All Might cards in the set. And let’s be honest, it’s not even the best All Might card out there.
But hey, people love their All Might, and the popularity of this card is a testament to that. As the expansion just hit the shelves, the prices are still fluctuating, so who knows, maybe this card’s price won’t smash any more records.
As we’ve seen a card’s value mostly peaks during the early days because less packs have been opened, but this is just speculation.
