Four-Color Heroics — Superpower Handbook


While the Four-Color Heroics Core Rulebook states that there is no definitive list of Powers in the game, the Superpower Handbook presents a list of possible Powers. You can implement them verbatim if you wish or simply use them as a starting point for creating your own Powers. 

• Loads of Powers, divided into six convenient categories.

• Special Rules for each Power that enable you to make it truly your own.

• Examples of Powers built from the frameworks provided by the stock Powers.

• Advice for customizing the Powers to better suit your vision.


Four-Color Heroics is a short but nuanced game system designed to perfectly capture the over-the-top action portrayed in the superhero comics of the era. With this book, a handful of dice, something to use as tokens and your imagination, there's no limit to the amount of fun you'll have playing out stories of crimebusting and Nazi smashing!

When will the Pod be ready?

Is the next book a Hero/ Villain character book? When will that be ready?
I thought I saw it announced somewhere.

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.
