The core rulebook is already available for pre-order, and will be on sale on August 2nd. It has been revamped based on the playtest feedback from the playtest rulebook released ast year. "After receiving thousands of fan responses, the core rulebook now features the new and revamped rules that make for a fun, fast, and dynamic game — including quick character creation, bombastic combat, and hundreds of amazing powers — plus full profiles of dozens of Marvel’s greatest heroes and villains. All that's needed is the book, three standard six-sided dice, and friends!"

This will be followed by Cataclysm of Kang, a collection of six adventures coming later this year. "This book includes new character profiles and features a series of six interlocked adventures. Fans can play through with a new team or character each time, or form a campaign that takes players from street-level heroes to cosmic champions! Both the core rulebook and adventure book are written by award-winning and New York Times best-selling author Matt Forbeck."


Finally, X-Men Expansion will launch in 2024, and will feature the X-Men, their allies and foes, and details of X-Men locations. "This is the first full-sized sourcebook for the Marvel Multiverse Role-Playing Game, and features the most uncanny Super Heroes of all: the X-Men and all their various spin-off teams, greatest allies and most fearsome foes. The X-Men Expansion is jammed full of vital information about Marvel’s most popular mutants, including dozens of new profiles for characters from X-Force, the New Mutants and Marauders. It also includes full-color maps of famous X-Men locations, including the Xavier Institute, Krakoa and Arakko, plus plenty of thrilling twists and turns for an entire campaign. Answer the call and join the X-Men! The creative team for this book will be announced soon."

Oh, I have a sneaking suspicion X-Men '97 is going to be in the MCU multiverse somewhere.
I hope so.
Kang = movie

Age of X X-Men books = Marvel's most richly creative franchise in years (decades?)
I agree but I don't expect to see anything X-Men-wise in 2023 or 2024 except the aforementioned cartoon. Even in 2025/2026 I'd be surprised if it was anything beyond essentially a multiverse cameo or something really low-key, because they'll be trying to sell us F4 stuff (puke, sorry older Gen Xers but F4 suck nuts).

Also Age of X stuff is kind of too daring/real for the very safe MCU, frankly, so I'd expect it to be a multiverse thing at most.

I mean, I don't think we're going to see an X-Men movie or TV series (except the non-MCU X-Men '97 cartoon continuation) in 2024. Unless you know something most people don't...
I was of the understanding that it actually is going to be MCU canon, insofar as the show itself is part of the fictional universe and there's a reason the "real life" X Men sold their likenesses to have a show about them made.

Weird you'd call them an 80's heartbreaker. The rules preview really had nothing in common with the pretty darned fun Marvel FASERIP game.. from the 80s.
TSR's Marvel Superheroes continues to cast a rather long shadow. I don't think I've played the game since 1990 or 1991, but I've never played in a superhero game I thought was as much fun as MSH. It's like trying to watch a Superman movie without thinking of Christopher Reeves. Just flat out impossible for me.

Whoa, that's a hell of an understanding. From where did you obtain such knowledge?
 



I like basic premise of the Fantastic 4 - Science Adventurers! do weird stuff. But the actual comic has never been to my taste. I do have a soft spot for Ben Grimm and Sue Storm. I feel that Sue has very poorly written over the majority of her existence.
Wow. That is pretty much exactly how I feel too, right down to the two characters I don't hate!

he/him

Yeah, the other two, Mr Fantastic especially, are soooooooo easy to hate.

I think the most interesting depiction of Reed Richards was when he was cheerfully working with the bad guys in (I wanna say Civil War,) designing and building the Negative Zone gulag.

To my knowledge there has never been an interesting version of Johnny Storm.


As to the new Marvel game and it's Wolverine-free cover. Yay!!! Look, I like Wolvie overall.* But bugger me that guy gets everywhere.

And when did Nightcrawler grow a goatie? Ick. Do not like.


*as with almost all comics characters there have been better and worse version of them across the decades.
