  1. I recall playing the original game while in Sixth grade (i.e. 1985) as a games Day activity. IIRC we only did a fight between heroes and Wolverin kept getting back up and returning to the fight time and time again.

    Thanks for the memories man. That post was featured on RPG bloggers! :)

    I somewhat remember both sets. I think I still have mine somewhere. I actually don’t think I’ve ever played a proper session of it though. I know I’ve used the character creation rules a few times for fun, but I don’t think I’ve actually played a session. Wierd how that works.

    @CDM I’m only just warming up – it’s going to be a great week of posts :D

    @Bonemaster I saw, but never played, the original set. The Advanced Books kept our group campaigning for many years though. Great stuff!

    I still have my advanced set on my game shelf, along with a couple of the supplements. I absolutely loved this game in the late 80s, though I never did play in or run an ongoing campaign — just a couple of one-shots.

    This was the game that got me into HERO, too. I’m not sure whether I should be grateful. ^_-

  5. Lord, how I love me some MSH. Way back here, I mentioned that I bought the game as a TSR junkie, then got into the comics because of the game.

    For all the money Marvel is making on their movies these days, the word is that hardly anybody is picking up the comics because of them.

    Something to think about…

    @Darth Hail and well met! If it wasn’t for the Marvel RPG I wouldn’t be quite the fan I am now, that’s for sure.

    Now, I reckon both Marvel and DC (to a lesser extent) are making more money from the franchises than they’ve ever made from direct comic sales. It’s as if they’re using the comics to test the water for future movie plots.

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see Batman RIP on the bigscreen after the latest round of supers movies is done.

    Seems like Classic Marvel is down today.

    Yep looks like it’s down and out for the duration :(

  9. Check out, for those looking to download the game books. Their forums are also good to go. Several of the Marvel fan websites seemed to have died within the last few months. Sad…
