If you're more of a comic book fan than a roleplaying game fan, and you're determined to tell a story in the action-packed style you're used to in the comics... then this is the game for you. There's a newer, card-based Marvel Super Heroes system coming from TSR, but call me nostalgic; the original dice game is a classic.

This is the best role-playing game for people who don't want to have to wade through a 200 plus page rulebook. It's easy to learn and its popularity is phenomenal, it stopped publishing in 1992, and twelve years later I still have no trouble getting players to sign up for the game at Los Angeles area conventions. This is the best game that carries the Marvel license, it's vastly superior to the new Marvel Universe game, and it's quite a bit better than the Saga card game. I give this game my highest recommendation.

This was the first RPG system I ever roleplayed in. It was simple to learn, challenging to master, and always fun to play. I fondly look back at this as the definitive Super Hero Roleplaying Game system. Especially using the Marvel license, no other "Marvel RPG" has even come close to this one. Great stuff.

Ever since I was 10 or 11 I've been into role-playing games. I've owned many over the years, and think the gaming system introduced by Marvel for their Marvel Super Heroes Role-Playing Game (both Basic and Advanced sets) is by far one of the easiest to learn and run. The rules aren't complex, and the Marvel system is in my opinion the most enjoyable to play.

Format: Paperback
A new version of the Marvel Super Heroes game. Certainly without the
short, fun factor of all the FASERIP ranks, karma, and bad jokes that
all of that could entail.

A different look at things, and in the end, nowhere near as
successful. There was no real reason to do this except for change of
licensing.
