Where are all the superhero RPGs?
Given that we’re smack in the middle of a superhero golden age, where it seems like every single blockbuster movie and every TV show is based on a Marvel or DC property, I’m kind of wondering where all the supers RPGs are.
For the most part, I’m thinking about mid-to-upper-tier publishers — the indies seem to be making decent progress on this front, what with Masks, Worlds in Peril, and I suppose maybe Icons. But the only “high-profile” supers RPG I can think of that is still being printed is Mutants & Masterminds.
Yeah, HERO is still around, but I feel like it has its own, steadily dwindling fanbase, and I guess some folks use other generic systems for superhero action.
But! Where are the fancy-schmancy, take-my-money games with lavish produciton values from FFG or… uh, is there anyone else? I know WotC is all-in on D&D and nothing but D&D, so I’m not going to count them.
What am I missing?
