Thor and Hawkeye Bonus Content for New Marvel RPG

I personally don't find Margaret Weiss Productions website the easiest to navigate, but I'm not throwing stones because I'm in charge of my company's website and know how difficult it is to design and maintain.  In Mightiest, Freddie is playing Thor and the fan made version we tried...well it didn't stand up too well.  We were both glad to find they added the God of Thunder as DLC (thanks, Rob).  In the process I found that MWP had added Hawkeye, as well.

Since it took me about 10 minutes to find the Downloads section, I decided to post them here.

I won't lie, I'm still not sold on Marvel Super Heroic Roleplaying and have just purchased Avalon Game Company's Heroes Wear Masks and am also looking at the old Marvel FASERIP game.  I'll see how it goes tonight.  I'm actually not fond of changing rules so I'll put up with alot just to keep the game moving.

It's very strange to run a game using published characters as opposed to original ones.  In 20 years running super hero games, this is a first for me.  I actually like it alot and have found it's very easy to work on subplots and plan both action set pieces and character pieces.  Setting it on Earth 926 has helped, as no one is locked into a particular behavior.

The Avengers have quite a bit of fallout to deal with this session.  Captain America, Shadowcat, and James Rhodes, all missing in action.  Downtown St. Louis destroyed and the Red Hulk got away.  The Triskelion was leveled and 846 of it's personnel killed by Baron Strucker, using the android body he stole from Tony Stark, and not a single Von Strucker left in custody.  And last, but not least, a returned Red Skull who is working with the Enchantress and the Executioner, all three at large.  I guess the one bright spot is that Loki recovered the Tessaract...of course, the Red Skull won't be letting go of it that easily, I'm sure.
