Marvel: Odd Jobs
Galactus needs a plumber. Someone has to get Lockjaw to the groomers. This pizza isn't going to deliver itself to K'un L'un (through all these Hand ninjas). Dr. Strange has an angry talking Raccoon in his attic again.

I'm thinking of a irreverent/semi-satirical Marvel game. Not completely funny, but definitely doesn't take itself too seriously. I'm trying to think of ridiculous tasks for supers, and then putting a twist on them to make them actually something a super would need to do.

Marvel Heroic, canon characters

Mmm! Sounds fun! Any option for original characters?

Hmmm. Some but not a lot of interest.

Would a more serious concept be more interesting?

I find marvel heroic really works best with canon characters. They can be variations on them, like from a different universe, but it's still a recognizable character.

I like the idea- it's the system, to me.

Not to me: the draw here is lighthearted setting using canon characters creatively. :)

Well, I mean how many players are you after? We've got four so far. Is that not good?

Five.

What sort of canon characters are you thinkng? Do you want “A” list, B-List, or C or D-List? A mix?

I'm interested as well. Definitely all-in on the light-hearted odd jobs angle.

I imagine the further down the list the characters are the better. C- or D-list heroes I could see running pizza for Jotunheim...not so much with the A- or B-listers.

I am fond of the schmucks further down the list. Two guys I love that would fit perfectly are Texas Twister and D-man. We're not supposed to get into character selection here, so let's leave it at that.

I prefer to start with 6 to give a buffer for attrition. I think Liblarva gets us there, so look for a player's wanted post over the next week or so.
