But I have always liked DC's heroes more. To me they were always more heroic than their Marvel counterparts. So it should come as no shock that I am MAJORLY geeking out since I have not just one, but two DC-based RPGs out now.
I have seen both games now and I like them for very different reasons. DCA is of course the sibling to the new Mutants and Masterminds 3. It has some changes from the previous editions, most of which I am thinking are needed. Abilities are rated different, and there are some new ones. But all in all I like it.
Smallville is Cortex but it is VERY different than previous versions of Cortex. This is both good and bad. I like the character creation system and it appeals to my desire to create a detailed character. I like that the system has been opened up to play all sorts of different kinds of games now. I can completely see how Leverage will work now.
Plus I still have Icons and BASH to look over, a full Cortex review to do.
I'd like to do up a character that works in all these systems. I think I have the perfect choice too. A while back we re-started our supers game and the world was a mixture of DC and Marvel. Basically DC was Golden and some Silver age and Marvel was Silver and some modern age. We were doing post modern. Well I had read "Kingdom Come" and it dealt with Supes, Batman and Wonder Woman in a new age. The final scenes dealt with Batman discovering that Wonder Woman and Superman were going to have a baby. I thought wow, how power would that character be? Half Kryptonian, half Amazon and Batman as a godfather? Yes. So that was my character. Details to follow.
All of this will have to wait till after Gen Con of course.
