That's not in dispute at all. However, since Cam seemed to imply there was wiggle room here in terms of the potential of having them as hero datafiles its worth anyone with an opinion weighing in.
In terms of Pixie and Anole's place in the event there's precedent for characters getting an upgrade or downgrade. Breakout is the event (effectively) in the basic game but we got the hero files for the FF, some X-Men, and characters like Daredevil, Ms Marvel, and Iron Fist who weren't really part of that. In Civil War, as a juxtaposition, Storm is presented as a Watcher character despite easily having as major a part in the comic book storyline as her husband and having a pretty big part in the battle where Ragnarok/Clor gets totalled.
