Something I've considered "homaging": Cyclone Comics.

 

Apparently about to have a revival: Facebook link.

Champions: the New Millennium setting with much more detail. I guess, tonally, that is covered by the Image Universe. If there ever was a product that would get me into Superhero roleplaying, it was C: TNM. I mean, the intro started out as a full-color comic book! Talk about a comfortable transition. I also wasn't afraid of the 90's style comic art and dark tones. I would say the setting was tailor made for me. Too bad it only ever got two supplements on top of the main book. If I were really dedicated, I might go tweak Fuzion a little and run a game in that setting. I'm not that dedicated though. :)

MLJ/Archie-verse--The first All-American superhero, and some of best superheroes ever. During the Silver Age they were known collectively as The Mighty Crusaders   It's almost criminal that they aren't better known today.

 

Future Quest--My entire Saturday morning as a kid in one universe.  It's as awesome as it sounds.

 

Ultraman--Warriors Of Light from Nebula M78 in the Fourth Galaxy.  No kaiju is safe when these guys are around.

 

Real Life Superheroes--Something a little different--no laws-of-science-defying abilities or technology.  Just some not-so-everyday people with a passion to do what's right,

I see of my own listed and quite a few I haven't thought about. Further questions,.would you say you're interest is primarily curiosity (How would X look quantified in Hero System terms), in using the setting for gaming or to borrow ideas and get inspiration for your own creations?

The Specialists.  Not quite a Golden Age flavor, but still thoroughly tasty.

 

They're starting a new feature on their Patreon feed--Tabletop Tuesday. in which The Specialists are statted out for various RPG systems.  I've gone ahead and told them that a Golden Age supplement for the current edition of Champions will be available soon--please don't make a liar of me.

Well there's already a "Wearing The Cape" RPG.  So a Grrl Power supplement would be good.  Sure almost nothing has happened for years of comics but a huge number of characters have been introduced.  


Is, "I'm just that awesome" really an origin?
