It is a game with very descriptive attributes that allowed the Amazing Spiderman to have Amazing Agility and The Thing to have Monstrous Strength. The gaming system lent itself to games that flowed well because the core mechanics were represented on a single colour-coded table. Effort was obviously put into making the game simulate the comics and the games designers did a very respectable job.
Players could generate their own characters with a fairly simple random generation system.
The system was supported with a considerable number articles published in Dragon and supplements.
