So just today I finally picked up the second set of purchases that I had done which was the Marvel Super Heroes Rpg: the Unofficial Canon Projects Marvel Super Hereos rpg Golden Age of Heroes book. This is a huge fan supplement for the Golden Age of WWII Marvel comic super heroes rpg clocking in at over three hundred pages of old school Marvel comics goodness. And they are not afraid to get into the nitty gritty or the soft underbelly of the Marvel WWII. So basically I had the Marvel Super Heroes Rpg: the Unofficial Canon Projects Marvel Super Hereos rpg Golden Age of Heroes book printed out, spiral bound, with a colour cover & black/white interior. Not only do you have the usual Captain America, Bucky Barnes, classic Namor, but this book dives into the unusual characters & NPC's who played hard ball with the heroes of the Sixties later on.

Review & Commentary On 'The unofficial canon project' The Marvel Super Hereos rpg Golden Age of Heroes book For Marvel Super Heroes Rpg
We've got the classic 70's Invaders 1975-1980 is represented here and we've got every Nazi scum that appeared in Marvel from the 1940's right on through the later '00's. Even in B/W the artwork is on point & the descriptions are solidly done as well as useful.
Everything in the Marvel Super Hereos rpg Golden Age of Heroes feels like it might have rolled off the presses at classic late Eighties TSR. And not only does the homefront get this feel so do the Marvel European hero teams of WWII. And this follows with battles, appearances, etc. of the timeline of World War II. And because this is a fan production there's a lot of heart in this one. Because I'm planning on running a classic supers campaign coming up.
Profiles are done with an eye towards classic Golden Age World War II comicbook timelines that date all the way back to the Seventies. The Marvel Super Heroes Golden Age of Hereos book does a good job of trying to keep the 90's & 00's WWII events within Marvel (haha) comicbook continuity. And there's even alternative Earths within the appendix that can be used as alternative campaigns. The whole package is a love letter to classic Golden Age & Bronze age Marvel War comics that we all grew up with & is perfectly suited for those who want to start a campaign in World War II. You can grab a copy of the The Marvel Super Hereos rpg Golden Age of Heroes book after joining 'The unofficial canon project' The Marvel Super Hereos on Facebook. And it is in my humble opinion well worth the download.
