Question

Some friends and I are looking into starting a super hero game, but we're fairly green in this field so...

What's the latest Super Hero RPG out right now?

In your opinion what's the best Super Hero RPG out right now?

The one that has struck my interest is Blood of Heroes, I like the point-based character creation system. But it was published in 2000, and I'm thinking there might be five years' worth of newer stuff out there.

anybody help?

Not Silver Age, Not Golden Age, but earlier than that...

The talk of Superhero RPGs got me to thinking of an idea that I had ages ago, called the Iron Patriot. The idea was to run a Superhero RPG during the American War for Independence. I know it sounds like an odd setting, but there is plenty of room for campy comic action in that period.

My main character was Iron Patriot, sort of a steampunk Iron Man who leads the fight for freedom against the likes of mad Prussian inventors and a British commander that was disfigured by the Iron Patriot and who has sworn a personal war against him. I had never taken it past a basic framework but it's always been a bit of a pet idea.

Don't you love it when your game hits epic levels and everything gets... silly?


On a more serious note:
Epic levels are neat and all, with the ridiculous powers, but do you ever feel like it robs characters of some of their personality?
