Rittenhouse Archives has released the forth series of Legends of Marvel and as with the other Series before it, these cards look great.   There are 9 double-sided cards for Thing, Ghost Rider and Ms. Marvel.  While there is an artist who tends to dominate Ghost Rider (Clayton Crain) and an artist who tends to dominate Ms. Marvel (Greg Horn), there are still plenty of interpretations of each character by different artists.
