IC: MHR X-Men First Class
I've had thoughts on a game I want to run with the X-Men.

The  PCs would be the first students of Professor X, but it dosen't necessarily have to be Cyclops, Beast, Jean Grey, etc. instead they would be young (18 or so) versions of whatever X-Man the player wanted. That way I wouldn't have to adhere to decades of canon, could put my own spin on villains and storylines.

A player could even pick a 616 villain, for example Blob or Mystique, who turned out on this Marvel Earth to be a First Class student. I imagine that the game would kick off in the modern day, so mutants started appearing perhaps around the turn of the century.

The system would be Marvel Heroic Roleplaying.

Would there be enough interest to get a game like that going?

I'd be very keen on it. I like MHR a lot.

Would it be more like a school game, would there be missions, or a mix of both and/or other things?

No classes being played out extensively more than likely besides danger room, downtime scenes like going to the mall, and yes missions. So directly to your question, a mix.

Just like a comic book, you may get the occassional scene of what characters do everyday, but more often is unique trips, action, and the more exciting part of the character's life.

Will the PCs be using existing canon character sheets, or rebuilding them from the ground up to reflect 1st-year status?

Also, I'm interested. :)

In reply to FrankenDoom (msg # 5):

I would say they would be based on existing datafiles, perhaps with changing distinctions and maybe toning down the specialties or power dice 'levels'.
