    This is an excellent idea. I look forward to the next instalment. When does this game go live ?

    Years ago I ran an invasion where all the PCs played bad guys but they were all that was left to save the world.

    I’m not sure about the “race is on” part. The team’s mission is to out-detect Batman? Even Batman distracted by baby-sitting Superman and Luthor? I think as a player I’d prefer “Batman and Superman are busy saving the world or something. That’s how comics work.”

      They’re not trying to out detect Batman, they’re out there detecting FOR Batman. Batman likely already suspects what really happened but he needs the heroes to gather the evidence together so that he can make his case to Superman and Lex.

      Ruling out Kryptonite, my next place to look would be magic. Probably not the real answer though since stapping someone with a magic sword isn’t exactly a new way to kill superheroes.

      There’s nothing wrong with a little friendly competition :) Of course, they’re not going to out-detect Batman but they can certainly help contribute to the solution – and perhaps even solve it themselves.

      It also means that I can drop Batman, Superman and Lex (snarling at each other) into the scenario at any time when the players are in need of clues. i prefer that to just having Batman and Superman “too busy saving the world”.

      I can’t imagine Superman being too busy to get personally involved in the death of his clone/son. That’s how good comics work.

    I’m no comic book expert by any stretch of anyone’s imagination, but, in addition to the TTs as suspects I would be also be looking at (if they exist in your campaign) another, larger group – the Legion of Superheroes.
