Super-Powers for d20! Comic Book Super-Heroes gives you simple but complete rules for creating super-powered characters. The centerpiece of Comic Book Super-Heroes is the Super point, a simple new addition to the standard d20. It can be used to gain and improve super-powers, it can be shared, and it can improve your odds of success when it comes time to roll the die.

For $5 you get 175 pages that include:

  • Eight broad based character classes.
  • 71 super-powers, most with several distinct abilities that allow you to trim the super-power to your character concept if you wish.
  • A guide for creating your own super-powers, or altering the ones presented.
  • Special rule choices for Bio-Engineered and Cybernetic based super-powers.
  • 89 Feats, for both super-powered and super-trained characters.
  • Martial Arts that give your character lots of abilities beyond just hand-to-hand expertise, and that give access to special feats
  • Detailed rules for constructing Gadgets, Mega-Gadgets, and 'Bots of all sizes; and special Gadget Feats.
  • Rules for Knock-Backs, ground pounding attacks, and flying.
  • A special rule to expand chases beyond comparing movement rates.
  • 5 power levels for your game, from Low to Standard, High, Great, and Mega powered.
  • Suggestions on combining various power levels into one campaign, letting a galaxy of possible super-heroes exist in one campaign setting.
  • Advanced Start Rules to allow characters to begin with a high level of super-powers, or start low and built up in strength and ability.


    Best of all you get Role Playing! The comic book staples of fantastic origins, secret/public identities, reputation, and connections are unencumbered by points and math and charts and min/maxing headaches and exploitation. You decide what best fits your character. You role-play it as you see fit. Additionally, you get a detailed Table of Contents and an index.

    What you don't get:

  • A meta-plot. Super-powers exist for whatever reasons you and your fellow players dream up. The system is not dependant on a particular setting.
  • Excess baggage. Simple rules for modern firearms, vehicles, computers, and other mundane equipment are included for convenience, but the emphasis is on the super-heroes and their super-powers.


    For a look at what's included, visit There you'll find sample characters, Frequently Asked Questions, a setting history, message boards and more.

    Okay, guys, what were you thinking, when you did this? It's not fast and simple... It's not play balanced... You've got complex and cumbersome rules for things that don't need any rules at all... {Like how to make Force Constructs move, since 'of cours [...]

    I've enjoyed this supplement. It's very innovative & detailed. You can pretty much make any Super-hero/villian you'd like. It could use a revision & I'd like to see more books along this line. [...]

    Not as good as I thought it would be. The system is well thought out, I just found Deeds not Words to be a bit more my style. If you have tried DNW & don't like that system, give this one a try, it just might be your cupa joe! [...]

    The most concise and useful guide for this sort of RPG gaming I have found yet. The simple but well-structured character development was easy to follow and use. I used it to solve arguements that were the bane of our games. Thanks! [...]

    Original electronic
    Scanned image
    These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

    For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

    For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
    Original electronic format
    These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
