Guide to the Hulk and the Avengers - Dan Gelber and Jeffrey Simons and Evan Jones

The Marvel Universe game was the next iteration of Marvel best RPGs.

Going for more style and more expense is really why I never was much interested as far as I recall.  The books have a paltry 40 odd characters of the usual suspects.  Plus a few normal humans.  The usual 60-40 type ratio of heroes to villains, depending on how you class the odd Eternal type character etc.

There's the array of heroes and villains at the start in full color and detail after an introduction...including stats for about 20 Hulk variants at times.  So that inflates the numbers depending on how you look at it.  There's also a 'how to construct a villain team' section giving various roles for various members of teams involved in Avengers adventures.  Some of which is a bit obvious perhaps...but a lot of this is condensed stats for characters that is a little hard to read...and repeating character titles who might fill several Ranged Combat and Support.  And is how you pack this many numbers into fewer pages with lots left over for other stuff.

A location adventure guide, power variants, gear etc. at the end with a few pages of the Avengers charter.
