It was a bit to fiddly. I enjoyed their Smallville game, although it
needed clearer writing/directions.
Marvel had the same lack of clarity, but less substance in terms of char
gen/soap opera, and as a (older/longer term) fan of Marvel comics, I
can tell you they needed more soap opera in their game.Frankly, Marvel could really have used something like Smallville's Values and Relationships setup — the Values part, at least. The Solo/Partner/Team thing just didn't feel right for the setting.
