2087Re: [icons-rpg] How powerful is an 8?
- Jul 5, 2011True, but that didn't modify hero ability scores much.
The 10-point Feeble to Unearthly scale was still reserved for player characters ability scores, which included all the main marvel heroes, so in the advanced rules, Hulk's Strength is still 9 (Monstrous), Thor's Prowess is still 10, etc.
Sometimes characters could push into the "shift" ranks temporarily- I think Hulk's Strength could go beyond Unearthly temporarily, for example, which would put him above 10 in ICONS terms, still FASERIP ranks track the 10 point scale well enough that I've used it to give players who are familiar with comics an idea of what their ability scores mean.

Depends on what version of MSH you are looking at. Remember, that later on you end up with six ranks beyond, Unearthly (10), seven if you count the "Beyond" stat.

If I can fall back on comparing ICONS 10-rank ability/power scores with Marvel FASERIP (which also used a 10 rank scale), 8 would be "amazing".
So: Spider-Man's Coordination; Black Panther's Prowess; Iron Man's Invulnerability; Ms Marvel's Strength; Vision's Strength; Captain Marvel's Awareness
(yes, I grabbed Avengers Coast to Coast to grab some random stats)
By contrast, Iron Man's Invulnerability in his gold armor is listed at a 6 in ICONS terms.
