Marvel Pulls MHR License

April 25, 2013

Oof. Marvel has pulled Margaret Weiss Production’s license for the Marvel RPG, and only given them a week to sell their remaining stock. This means that the remaining Annihilation books will never see the light of day, nor Age of Apocalypse. A sad day for superhero gaming.

The Marvel Heroic Roleplaying game is/was the first superhero RPG that I’ve seen that actually captures how superhero stories work. If they had managed to publish the remaining supplements, at least, I would have been satisfied that it had a good run. But to have the rug pulled out from under it while it’s in the middle of its publishing schedule… It sucks for the fans, and it sucks for everyone that worked on those books.
