It is with great sadness that I announce my good friend, David Stevens, aka Hyper-man passed away last week. He fought a courageous battle against brain cancer.   He was a Huge fan of the Hero System, and has a very impressive collection of products he was very proud of.


I wanted to make sure everyone had a chance to see this. It is from a thread in the Hero System Discussion board but I know not everyone here frequents that spot regularly. I know how it hit me, and sad as it is I would still want to know. 


HM was a long time resident of these boards. He was a mainstay for many of us, always there, always supportive and friendly. I used to live in his part of the state but I never was able to meet him in person. I never knew quite what to say even earlier in this thread. But I wanted to get a chance to somehow say farewell to a guy I considered a friend even though I never got to shake his hand. When I heard about further brain surgery I pictured what he must be going through, I've seen my dad get such a procedure, but Didn't understand how truly bad it must have been for him.


Goodbye, Hyper-Man. Thanks for stopping by and spending some time with this esoteric message board. We were better for it.


Goodbye, David. I wish I could have met you.


Good bye, Hero.

I only knew David through social media (here and the Book of Face), but I could see what a good and decent person he was. The way he handled his fight against cancer was inspiring. I'm the better for having known him, even if only virtually.


Godspeed, Hero.

RIP Hyper-Man.


I have a bad feeling we're going to be writing that a lot more often in the coming years. :(


It's an unfortunate consequence of spending time with people of our age and experience, I suppose.

I just found this; I was trying to figure out why I haven't seen Hyperman lately. 


We had a long running on and off collaboration over the years. Most notably I've been hosting some characters for him for many years, Hyper-Man's JLA on 350pts Project, and he provided a lot of feedback (and feature requests) for my HD exports. 


I never met him face to face, but always had great interactions with him online. He'd also step in from time to time and chill me the fk out when I was getting a little too...well...me in thread wars over the years.


It's really saddening to find out that he suffered severe illness and went before his time. I'll definitely miss his input and point of view. I wish his friends and family sympathy.


Rest in piece, old virtual friend. :(
