New superhero game ICONs, and free setting for it

My man-on-the-scene for superhero roleplaying, Doug, just told me about the new ICONS superhero rpg, which has some design elements that I like the sound of, mainly simplicity and some old-school harking.

He's sufficiently excited that he's created a setting for it called DOA, designed to facilitate one-shot adventures, along with some characters. Doug's super characters are always worth reading. So far my favorite is Montgolfier, the big-headed supervillain who is really hard to hit.

  1. Why, Aaron, I'm flattered for the attention! ICONS has an old Marvel RPG vibe with some slightly more polished mechanics. I think my favorite characters are the Potato and Jersey Devil, for entirely different reasons.
