I would like to start playing a superhero game, but the last one I played was TSR's Marvel in the 80's. Any suggestions?
Agreed.It's probably helpful if you say a little bit about your general RPG preferences, plus the sort of supers setting you were thinking of using this for. After all, if you're looking for something that works like D&D to use for a grim cosmic powered kitchen sink setting, and someone suggests a low powered, ultra-lite game based on TOON, it's not going to be terribly helpful.
Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but the most current on the Marvel side was the now-defunct Cortex version, which was a fun game. I'm not sure if there are ways to get copies of that anymore. On the DC side, Green Ronin has a game based on Mutants and Masterminds 3rd edition (which is itself a highly modified 3e D&D).I'm looking for something comic based - Marvel, DC, hell even Dark Horse. I'm not afraid of details or crunchy mechanics, just nothing overboard where it takes a lifetime to resolve a battle.
