With great power comes great responsibility (March Madness Day 9)

9 What superhero RPG have you enjoyed most? Why?

The only supers game I've actually gotten to play (I've made characters for quite a few but as usual, the games never got going) is TSR's Marvel Superheroes RPG. The one with the color coded charts. It's fun, and since I was more of a Marvel fanboy than DC when I was heavy into comics, I enjoyed being able to have my heroes face off against classic Marvel bad guys like Magneto or Dr. Doom. And you could roll your own hero or play one of the classic Marvel heroes. Win, win!

Now, a game I'd love to play is Jeff Moore's Hi/Lo Heroes. This game is simple, yet flexible enough to run any sort of super you'd like. The big problem I have is that no one wants to run/play a supers game. When my son is a little bigger, though, I'm planning on pulling out this game to play with him.
