Howdy folks:

I worked these benchmarks up for Resistances. These are similar to the ones that I posted a few weeks ago, but I expanded the superhuman range to account for certain characters. There is a Version A and a Version B. Let me know which one you think works best for Supers!

Once I get these finalized, I'll work up a DC Universe version.

Good stuff there, I love doing comic character conversions :)

I prefer version A as they give more of a spread, but looking at the rules and the supplements I can't see any character with a resistance above 5D so maybe version B is more in line with the spirit of the rules?

Hey nightstoat,

That's my feeling exactly. It seems weird to have Spider-Man and Hulk with the same Fortitude Resistance, for instance, so Version A is my preference. That being said, Version B seems more in line with the published materials. Maybe we can just say that the Supersville Universe is simply lower-powered than the Marvel Universe (in the same way that the Marvel Universe seemed lower-powered than the DC Universe - at least until recently)?

I haven't actually played Supers! yet, however, so it's hard for me to judge what makes sense in terms of play. Would going with a Fortitude 7D Hulk or Thor in anyway break the system? Is such a move unnecessary due to other system mechanics, like armor, etc.?

Any further thoughts?

Best,

Dragonfly

Oh, and one more thing. Feel free to critique my placement of the characters in question. I'm pretty confident with my Reaction and Fortitude rankings, but a little more iffy about Composure and Will. I'd love another set of eyes with regards to the actual interpretation of the characters.

Best,
