If you are just a fan of DC comics, then this book will still appeal to you as it is an awesome reference encyclopedia-like guide. But, with one major difference that past DC Universe Encyclopedias did NOT have; actual power levels.
Exactly how strong is Captain Marvel?
How fast is the Flash?
How smart is Batman?
All are answered here.
Full power levels are displayed with very little need for the layman to study tons of Mutant & Masterminds gaming charts and materials. (But I do recommend a little study to familiarize yourself with the stats.
Great pictures and tons of characters. 320 pages of nerdy goodness!!!
This is only Volume 1, so it will only cover heroes and villains A-K. In volume 2 due for release in a few months, we will get the other L-Z characters.
WELL WORTH THE WAIT TIME AND MONEY SPENT!!!! Get this book now!!!!
This book is one of two volumes of 'heroes and villains' detailed in game terms for the "DC Adventures" RPG, which RPG is fully-compatible with the 3rd edition of the "Mutants & Masterminds" super hero RPG released by the same publisher around the same time.
I particularly liked the publisher's decision to present the 'timeless, classic' versions of these characters, rather than the most modern versions currently appearing in DC Comics. The narrative detail in the various entries impressed me as well.
If there's a downside to this game, I'd say it was the slow pace that the additional volumes were published subsequently (especially the delay in releasing the second volume of this 'heroes and villains' collection). The publisher is small (as is the market for these games, presumably). But if you're new to the game as of this writing (Spring 2014), you're in luck because all four volumes of the "DC Adventures" game have long since now been published.
As a compliment to the work, I can add that I wish there'd been more than only four volumes in this series.
Would suggest even if you only want to know just about the characters, and never intend to play the game. Great resource.
