Marvel Universe (toyline)
Marvel Universe is a 3 3⁄4" action figure line manufactured by Hasbro, featuring characters from the Marvel Comics universe. It first hit stores in early 2009 and features detailed sculpting, multiple points of articulation, and accessories. The line was created by Hasbro Designer Dave Vonner.
Single Carded Figures - Series 1 (Fury Files)
The first series of single carded figures are marketed under the name Fury Files, with Nick Fury appearing on the back of the packaging. Each figure comes with a "Top Secret" envelope which includes a Superhuman Registration Act card and official S.H.I.E.L.D. document for each character. The packages also feature character art by Frank Cho. Variants or running changes that share the same numbering as the original figure are noted by an asterisk to the right of a figure followed by "W#", with # being the wave that the variant was released alongside and "R" representing which Revision case of the Wave. All of Series 1 first prints also came with the blue Nick Fury Exclusive Figure Offer sticker that is located at the top right hand corner of the plastic shell.

Unlike Series 2 and Series 3, it did not include figure stands. There was no theme, with the S.H.I.E.L.D. emblem replaced by comic cover shot artwork specific to each figure.

There was still no theme and it no longer included the comic cover shot artwork specific to each figure that was featured in Series 4.

Single Carded Figures - Marvel Infinite Series
Hasbro announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2013 that the Marvel Universe toyline would end in 2013, replaced by a new line focused on Avengers in 2014 and shifting to X-Men in 2015. It was then clarified that this was just a rebranding exercise and essentially a continuation of the old line. While promoted to retailers as "Avengers Infinite" (with some characters carrying a "Marvel Platinum" billing), the actual packaging refers only to "Marvel Infinite Series". There is no explicit mention of an Avengers focus, but some subtle iconography (Mojnir, Captain America's star, Iron Man's head and Hulk's fist). The shift in focus to X-Men did not occur, with no changes in 2015 to the packaging nor to the character selection.
Inspired by Hasbro's Star Wars "The black series", the packaging is on a smaller card with a black background and the toyline name followed by the above-mentioned Avengers icons. There is no front character artwork, but the cardback has a picture of the figure and description, along with thumbnails of each of the other figures in the wave. In a further departure, there is no mention of a series number or of any obvious figure numbering. However, Hasbro.com refers to an item number for each figure (listed on the cardboard insert inside the front bubble), which is referred to below for ordering the figures.

Single Carded Figures - Marvel Legends Series
At New York Comic Con 2015, Hasbro revealed new carded figures rebranded under the Marvel Legends Series moniker, which had been suggested at on its presentation slides at SDCC 2015. As part of the rebranding, the package art featured the return of character art on the card front, which had been lost under the Infinite Series. The main change on the card back was to feature all the figures in the wave (including the figure on that card). Previously, the Infinite Series had teased just three other figures from that wave, with the assortment varying from figure to figure.
