Hmm, I figured HeroClix had basically supplanted the tabletop gaming formats, but..

I've been GMing this Hype, its way different from the Classic Marvel RPG.  What I don't like about Marvel when it comes to their RPG systems, they always have to adapt their own system which usually ends up so obscure it scares gamers away from the game as a whole.  This time they went with Margaret Wies and her Cortex system.  Margaret Wies and Tracy Hickman was known for their Dragonlance novels and rpgs.  As for the Cortex system, its pretty simple and straight forward and far from the old TSR rules we used to play.  Like the other versions of MSH rpg, I see this dying out also, bring back the Classic and stick with updates.  If you still want resources on the classic Marvel rpg check out Classic Marvel Forever, its got everything to run Marvel from back in the day.
