I’ve been playing with the Marvel Heroic Roleplaying game for the past few days, cobbling together characters to see how I can stretch the system. It does very, very well on higher powered supers, not so well on the street-level types (but they’re still doable.)

Here’s an ooooold character from my first supers game I played in (before I was into comics.) It’s the Beauty & the Beast sort of brooding outsider trying to do good. Lion-like in appearance: big, scary, but very smart. Think the Beast from X-Men.
