Continuing my experimentation with the Brick class for Light City...here's another important one to take into consideration that also matches one of my haphazardly rebased HeroClix that will (hopefully) soon find a place on my tabletop.
The Hulk is really one of the most classic of all superheroic Bricks, I think. He's also fairly straightforward as far as Bricks go; he's big, strong, and tough. I'm thinking his accelerated healing should maybe be taken into account. He can also jump really high and far, but that's covered at least slightly in the base Brick class. And while I don't follow Hulk comics very closely, he's apparently immortal these days. I won't worry about that one.
As for drawbacks? I don't know that a transformation into superheroic form is a drawback in itself; I should probably do a little survey of other supers RPGs to see how that's treated in general.
The uncontrollable rage, though...that's probably a hindrance. Let's see...
There are a lot of Superman songs out there. Here's another one I like.
Well...I'm pretty sure I like it. It has a certain resonance with me. I had a phase long ago in which I listened to a lot of popular music from the '60s, and this eventually became a familiar tune that had the added bonus of name-dropping not only Superman, but also Green Lantern...!
Whatever your take on it, I think it's hard to deny that this one sounds very Sixties...
Sunshine Superman is also the name of the Man of Steel hailing from Earth 47 (or, in his earliest appearance, Dreamworld), the psychedelic superhero universe that can owe its groovy existence to Grant Morrison and Chaz Truog.
And now, I finally get around to wishing a happy and healthy new year to all of the good people who stop by this blog! (I actually wish it for everyone else, too, but I'll need some help passing the message on to them.)
To celebrate, here's something I never really get tired of...the Ramones' New Year's Eve 1977 show in London, which was later released as the live album It's Alive.
Johnny would later say: “I think our peak, our greatest moment, is that New Year’s Eve show of 1977 into 1978. I think that’s our greatest moment as a band.” Strong words!
And here's Joey for White Box/Light/Continual Light gaming. Man, I really need to find a miniature of him.
