There have been a lot of superhero-themed RPG’s over the years. Just last night we were talking about Villains and Vigilantes, which was one of the first. I used to play a lot of Champions, as has been discussed earlier. But at Quincon this year, we are offering several sessions of what may be the most popular current superhero RPG; ‘Mutants and Masterminds’ published by Green Ronin. .
M&M is actually a d20-based RPG, which may explain it’s popularity. Although it is based on the Open Game License, it is very different than Dungeons and Dragons. There are no classes, different skills and feats, and no hit points. Like Champions, you can make just about any hero that you can imagine with a near-unlimited list of powers which can be customized to fit your vision.
Here is where the game lives on the internet: Mutants and Masterminds
Here is a good video review from someone who really likes the game:
