      Heck, if I wanted to do the work, I'd do everybody I'd heard of. (Uh--that sounded wrong, but you know what I mean.)

      But if I'm suggesting that Gareth or Steve do the work in his non-existent free time? I'm happy to provide a limitation. :)

      >> The Field Guide to Superheroes Volume 2 includes a new specialty called Nature, but it is essentially a combined version of the Animals and Nature specialties found in the Villainomicon (which came out later).
      >>
      >> I recently wrote an article on my blog that lists all the new powers from third party publishers (essentially Vigilance Press), and I give suggestions for what type of power they can be classified as (Control, Movement, Sensory etc.) as well as what power they can be substituted for when rolling up characters randomly. You can easily use the guidelines there for the Super-Vehicle power to apply to the new Vehicle power from Fainting Goat Games in Justice Wheels.
