Advice is also provided if players wish to pursue the scene further. The datafiles of characters in the scene and some of the scenes will be very useful in your own events, although no index is provided if you want to quickly find this information.

Further discussion is made for advanced troupe play, such as players who want to play heroes on either side of the registration act. Scene Distinctions and Complications: This optional rule makes Scene Distinctions have more impact on a scene. A player may now add a Scene Distinction and a character Distinction to his dice pool for free, so long as one is a d4 and the other a d8.

To put it another way, think of any particular Marvel Heroic in terms of descriptive terminology, adjectives and adverbs rather than numbers to fill out things like strength, dexterity, constitution and so forth.

This might make narrative sense but it also depends upon the group getting on well. This will be a real philosophical change of pace for many game masters.
