No numbers from me, unfortunately. I do have a report from the front, though.
The only place I have seen these so far was in Meijers. I looked at Target, WalMart, and TRU to no avail.
Meijers had the Punisher, Stealth and standard Iron Man, the Silver Surfer, Flaming Torch, blue and red Spider-Man, X-Force Wolverine, and Daredevil. I didn't pick any of them up, although in retrospect I wish I would have grabbed Daredevil. No idea what the deal is, but they look so tiny to me!
Plus, my wife was with me, and I didn't want to start a potential argument on Valentine's Day. LOL
I am hoping to track down black-suit Spidey, Deadpool, the Green Goblin, and now Daredevil at some point. If I ever see an official release list, I am sure I'll add some others to my wish list.

I found both the Marvel Universe figures and Origins figures at Toys R Us here in Memphis today. Both lines were hit and miss for me. I got the three Marvel figures I wanted from Wave 1, Wolverine, Iron Man, and Spiderman.
These figures work great with Joes.
Spiderman has the best articulation to get him in all those Spidey poses.
Iron Man is great and his shoulder armor is hinged to give a full range of movement, unlike Wraith. Wolverine is a great looking figure!
I passed on the rest of Wave 1 because I'm not really a fan of the others. Silver Surfer and Daredevil look great, but Punisher does have a big goofy head, and Johnny Sorm has a real cartoonish face. The paint apps on the Marvel figures were great!
The Origins figures are a different story. Whoever painted the Indiana Jones figures must have painted these. I'm not usually that picky, but at $8 a pop, I will be. I wanted to get every version of Wolverine, but the paint apps were just sloppy. One plus - I thought the Wolverine in both lines would have the same body mold. Not so. The Origins body is smaller than the Marvel body. That should make some fans with scale issues happy. There are also different heads as well. Deadpool was the main one I wanted, so I just got him for now. Gambit and Sabretooth looked good and Maverick was OK. Weapon X looked the worse as far as paint apps. If the paint apps improve and I have extra money, I'll probably get the rest.
Looking for at reasonable prices:
25th Defense of Cobra Island 7-pack, PoC City Strike Destro, Ren Storm Shadow

Picked up the Punisher at K-Mart for $8.99 (!!!). His paint scheme is weird as it has a lot of blue in it and his head sculpt is off. Also, his left hand is too open and he can't hold weapons very well.
However, he does look good sitting on my 25A GI Joe display with all the other figures.

Yeah didn't get Punisher because he was fugly. Wave 2 version looks much better. Can't wait for Hulk, Green Goblin, and classic-style Iron Man. Oh and Capt!

I picked up 9 of the 11 by hitting up 3 different Meijer locations in Michigan. $7.99 each which I thought was steep. I guess that's a pretty good deal.
They are very cool, but a little flimsy. My Wolverine has an extremely loose torso which makes me mad.
Hopefully we get some more villains soon. Only 2 in the first 2 waves.
I haven't seen the Wolverines Movie figures, but I'll be getting all those too.
