Superhero rules for the Marvel Universe
« on: January 12, 2014, 10:29:16 PM »
Hey, I'm looking for a Superhero rulesystem for the Marvel Universe. I know Supersystem 3rd edition could do it, but I want something ready to play. Something like the knight models Batman game. Supersystem could work, but I don't think the 4th edition will have the Spiderman stats...

Thanks for the assistance

Christophe

Easy: Heroclix or Heroscape.

- Good things of them: They are ready to play

I´d recommend Supersystem or next Pulp City rulebook with characters creation. That games are more complex and they´re not ready to play (you have to create the stas) but, in my opinion, superheroes are better represented and you have more freedom: you decide the stats of Marvel heroes as you want, nobody tell you that Spiderman only shots web on click 3 like heroclix.

For out of the box stuff, you could try the old Marvel RPG rules at http://classicmarvelforever.com/cms/.

I've no idea how they translate to miniatures, but they're free and are at the very least a good reference point for statting up Marvel heroes in another system.

The more recent Marvel Heroic RPG is also useful for reference, but the mechanics are too abstract for a minatures game.

Thanks Carlosyc. But I'm trying to get away from Heroclix... I don't know Heroscape, but it looks good. Most of the figures have stats.
I do like the supersystem gameplay, but I don't like their "heroes". I've found a marvel version for the second version I guess, but it hasn't been translated to later versions. I'll check the Heroscape version out.

Thanks all
Christophe

Are there any sites that have player submitted character stats? I know for Heroscape, they have a site called Heroscapers that has fan made/tested cards designed to use with other game figures (I mainly look at the clix ones).
Looking for a set of rules that adaptable for different genres.

A few months ago there was a web with a lot of stats of SS3. Hundreds of Marvel and Dc Characters but now is down

You could ask if somebody have the stats

Some of those was posted up on the SuperSystem3 Yahoo Group under the files area.
