Default What insert cards to add to Marvel character collection?

After looking at that cool Deadpool collection on Upper Deck's blog ( See How this Deadpool Fan Displays his Incredible Marvel Premier Letterman Cards! | Upper Deck Blog ) and noticing less Fantastic Four cards being made (no base card for Invisible Woman in 2014 Dangerous Divas 2) and remembering the FF sketch card embargo ( No Fantastic 4 related sketc cards ), I thought it might be a good time to try make a Sue Richards card collection since the amount new FF related cards doesn't seem increasing as quickly as other Marvel characters.

But what cards would be good to get? Of course, sketch cards by favorite artists like Axebone, Martineck, Perna and so on is a given. I think I came up with a pretty good checklist for non-sketch cards to start on, but what other cards are "must haves" for a card collection?

Base cards
1996 Marvel Masterpieces, base card #23
2012 Marvel Premier, base card #2, #/199
2014 Marvel NOW!, high number base card #132

Inserts
2013 Marvel Fleer Retro, Jambalaya #2
2013 Marvel Fleer Retro, Ti-22 #7
2013 Marvel Fleer Retro, Ultra Stars #8
2014 Dangerous Divas 2, 75th Anniversary #48, #/75

Parallels
2013 Marvel Fleer Retro, Precious Metal Gems #2, Green #/10
2013 Marvel Fleer Retro, Precious Metal Gems #2, Blue #/50
2013 Marvel Fleer Retro, Precious Metal Gems #2, Red #/100
2013 Women of Marvel 2, Diamond #32, #/10
2014 Marvel NOW!, Ruby Red #44, #/10
2014 Marvel Universe, Diamond #90, #/10
2014 Marvel 75th Anniversary, Diamond #40, #/10

Printing Plates - black, cyan, magenta, yellow
2011 Marvel Beginnings, Printing Plates #31
2012 Marvel Premier, Printing Plates #2
2013 Marvel Fleer Retro, Printing Plate #20
2013 Marvel Fleer Retro, Printing Plate 1990 Impel Marvel #12
2013 Marvel Fleer Retro, Printing Plate, 1991 Impel Marvel #10
2014 Marvel NOW!, Printing Plates #44

Memorabilia
2005 Fantastic Four Movie, Costume Card #FF005, #/299
2005 Fantastic Four Movie, Costume Card #FF006, #/349
2005 Fantastic Four Movie, Costume Card #FF009, #/699
2008 Marvel Masterpieces 2, Fantastic Four Movie Memorabilia #FF2

Yes, the Dangerous Divas P1 features Sue Storm.

A set I would love to complete. 1976 Topps Marvel Super Heroes Stickers Checklist, Set Info, Buying Guide

There is an older set but it does not include Sue Storm

Default 1990's Marvel inserts

While looking for various Marvel inserts the last few days, it occurred to me that there might be other newer "character collectors" looking for inserts of their favorite characters, too. Here's some non-autograph/ parallel/ sketch insert cards that I noticed to be a little pricier from the 1990's:

1998 Marvel Creators Collection, Sketchboard #18, Spider-Man
1998 Marvel Silver Age, Heroes
1997 X-Men Timelines, Wanted Posters #2, Professor X
1996 Marvel Masterpieces, Double-Impact
1996 Marvel Masterpieces, Gallery
1996 Marvel Motion, Virtual Vision
1996 Marvel Onslaught, Mirage
1996 X-Men Fleer Ultra: Wolverine, Mirage
1995 Masterpieces, Holoflash
1995 Masterpieces, Mirage 1 of 2, Avengers
1995 Masterpieces, Mirage 2 of 2, X-Men
1994 Marvel Universe IV, Hologram #H-IV , Spider-Man vs Venom

There's probably a whole bunch more that I missed though. Also, I remember some collectors saying that some of the parallels were really tough to get.

I think there are several different colors of these that vary in rarity and a huge price differential. Pretty sure I pulled the cheapest/most common one. Still my favorite card of all time, although I'm a big fan of the 1993 MU III Holos also.

Anyone ever play with those MU Holograms?

I was HUGE into nonsport cards in 5-7th grade and let a few of those holograms soak in the sun - not on purpose, usually from sitting in car while traveling with family. I SWEAR that they changed colors... I remember quite a few going from reddish to yellow/green. Am I imagining this? Because decades later I see people assume the color is completely dependent on rarity. Maybe I'll snatch up some cheap ones on the bay and experiment again .

Default 2000's inserts

Since I was mainly focused on sketch cards so I can't remember that many inserts from the 2000's. Also, Topps had the Marvel license didn't put out that many sets (I'm pretty sure it was only 2001 Marvel Legends and 2003 Incredible Hulk) in the first part of the decade before Rittenhouse and Upper Deck landed it and focused on sketch cards as the prime hit of the sets. Here's the only noteworthy inserts that I could recall:

2009 X-Men Archives, Legendary Heroes
2008 Women of Marvel, Embossed
2008 Women of Marvel, Embrace
2008 Marvel Masterpieces 2 Hulk Die-Cut "B" (retail)
2008 Marvel Masterpieces 2 Hulk Die-Cut "C" (retail)
2008 Marvel Masterpieces 2, Iron Man Die-Cut "B" (retail)
2008 Marvel Masterpieces 2, Iron Man Die-Cut "C" (retail)
2008 Fantastic Four Archives, Legendary Heroes
2006 Complete Avengers, Legendary Heroes
2001 Marvel Legends, Costume Change

Nope. Just left them in a box until my mother eventually tossed them

2013 Fleer Retro Marvel, Hologram
Since there were only three cards, this one was actually pretty easy to put together. At least, at the time is was. Not sure about now.

Additions for this list, without going into movie swatch cards:

Thor film cell acetate set
Avengerstwhile Heros/villains Evolve Foil set
