A World without Heroes

StilettoIn the midst of my sickness earlier this week, I got it into my head to convert one of my old Mutants & Masterminds 2nd Edition characters to some more recent systems. Namely M&M 3rd Edition, ICONS, and Marvel Heroic Roleplaying.

I finished. I wrote them all up and just need to type them up. But then I wondered why. What was the point. This was a PC. Nobody wants to play someone else’s PC. It is even a little questionable with Marvel… but at least those PCs are famous.

When creating a superhero setting to roleplay in, there is no good reason to create heroes. The players are going to be more than happy to do that job for you.

So I have this character. Is she a support character or is she a supervillian? That is the real question.
