This Summer Supers is the long awaited release of Mutants and Masterminds 3rd Edition, released in April of this year. The release of DC Adventures, essentially a Mutants and Masterminds 2.5 but featuring all your favorites from the DC universe, was a welcome addition to the tabletop gaming world in August of 2010, but left Marvel hero fans on the sidelines. M&M3, while not obtaining a Marvel license, allows players the ability to make their own superheros patterned after anything they desire, including Marvel characters, with far greater ease than in prior editions.
M&M3 boasts a streamlined system that allows new and veteran players alike to create a character and begin play in just minutes, using a single die roll to determine outcomes of conflict, and thus playing hours in a game without being bogged down in combat mechanics. If you have played DC Adventures, then you'll be familiar with the system in Mutants and Masterminds, 3rd Edition.
So if you're looking to create some superhero action of your own, give this a try. At only $21.75 on Amazon, you can't beat the price, unless you're getting the Wild Talents Essential Edition, and if you enjoy the book, you'll want to get your hands on the GM Kit and Gamemaster's Guide going on sale July 12, 2011. Also check out the Mutants and Masterminds website. They have already released 22 adventures for you to play for 3rd edition, entitled Threat Reports, on sale for only $0.99 each.
