Gaming in the Golden Age of Comics using MHR

April 8, 2013

I’m currently running a Marvel Heroic Roleplaying game, so future posts will be concerning that game for the next while. My game is set during World War II, so in theory it’s set during the Golden Age of superheroes. Although when you take that concept and give it to some gamers who don’t really know anything about the Golden Age of comics, you end up with something completely different…

As it happens, I didn’t really know much about the Golden Age of comics when we started (the setting was a player request), so I ended up doing a lot of research beforehand. That, plus the general easiness of writing up characters in MHR, has led to a lot of game stats for Timely’s (the company that became Marvel Comics) Golden Age characters.
