Uh, what? Yeah, you can point the blame for this directly at Diabolu Frank, he if the Idol-Head of Diabolu, Justice League Detroit, and lots of other quality comic book blogs.
Anyway, I'm the odd man out in this celebration because not only have I never played the Mayfair DC Comics RPG, up until recently I didn't know such a thing existed. I was a Marvel guy for a long time, and I didn't start reading comics "for reals" until like 1991, so I was on the wrong side of the timeline for this game and its various editions and releases. Hell, factor in the fact that I didn't get interested in RPGs until I was in high school, and didn't play my first real game until I was a frosh in college, and the only superhero game I have ever played was a one-off session of Mutants and Masterminds, and it all starts becoming clear. Head over to Shag's run down of the system for more background.
(That having been said, I am working on a d20 War That Time Forgot game, which might be more my speed. "The T-Rex moves in for the kill" "Uh, I shoot him with my machine gun." *roll* "It has no effect." "Uh... I... run?")
Nonetheless, I can still show off these scans which Frank was kind enough to supply me with!
Katar looks sort of like he just spotted a new Sundollars Coffee on the streets of Midway, but I like the nicely defined musculature he is sporting here. The states don't mean much to me, but judging from Frank's post about the Bronze Tiger, it looks like Katar is either near or slightly above peak human on most of them, which makes sense. Thanagarians have great technology and Hawkman is a very skilled combatant, but he's not mixing it up with the powerhouses. I like the ranks in Detective, a definite nod to his Silver Age representation. Same with Scientist, a connection to the Thanagarian science the Hawks would use back in the day. It looks like Hawkman would fit in an adventure where he normally fits in with the League -- using his fighting skill and technological advantage to take down his foes rather than super powers.
Although, I must say I think Katar (and Shayera) would find listing "Married" as a Disadvantage quite inaccurate!
Let me give a final shout-out to one Mr, Tom Hartley, the inspiration for all of this nuttiness. And be sure to check out these other fine Mayfairstivus participants!
