View Full Version : Stats for Spider-Man + Avengers

08-01-2011, 02:40 PM
Hey folks,

I purchased Supers! awhile back, but never got a chance to play it. I've recently returned to it, and am enjoying it immensely.

I've been toying around with some Marvel write-ups. These are meant to emulate the characters as they appear in the comics, so they are built on far more dice than your standard Supers! character. Actually, the Spider-Man build is meant to be a "classic" or "iconic" version of the character. The Avengers builds are meant to capture the characters as they appear in the cartoon Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes (which is why the Hulk is always at maximum strength, why thor has an immunity to gamma radiation, etc.). I still need to do write-ups for Hank Pym, Wasp, Black Panther, and Hawkeye. I'll try and get to those soon.

In the meantime: Enjoy! Also, feel free to offer constructive criticism, as I am still getting a hang of the system.

Thus armed, he fought bravely for his country and inspired Allied troops as Captain America. While fighting the Red Skull during the final days of the war, Captain America was dumped into arctic waters and frozen in ice, preserved by the super-soldier serum coursing through his veins. He was awakened seventy years later by the Avengers and joined their ranks to continue to fight for the ideals of his country.

Tasting adventure, he enhanced the suit and used it to become Iron Man. As he started to come to grips with the violence caused by Stark Industries’ inventions, his sense of mission increased.

Nice stuff! The only thing I'd change is that all of them except maybe the Hulk should have some Competency dice. They are the Avengers, after all!

Hey danbuter,

Thanks for the kind words and for the feedback. I'm new enough to the system that I don't have a good sense yet of what is too much and what is too little in terms of competency dice. So that leads me to my question: What guidelines would you use to give these guys Competency Dice? How many would you give them? In this case, I'd probably give the Hulk some too. This is the Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes Hulk, which means that he's on his way to becoming more hero than monster.
