When I wrote my last article on a Role-Playing Game, I enjoyed it so much that I decided to do another one. This time, I went to the other major super-hero RPG, Marvel Super Heroes, by TSR. One Module that I really loved was Secret Wars.

I really had not planned to review this issue. This is in the middle of the event, and it looks to me like most of the ancillary series kind of miss the mark on where this event is supposed to go, ultimately not really seeming to matter much in the end. However, after reading it, certain things happen and certain characters appear that really made me stop for a moment, give that internal squee of approval and decide that I had to write about this issue. A word of caution, although I'm going to try to not spoil anything, I can't guarantee that I won't in some way ruin a moment for you. You've been warned.
A guilty pleasure of mine is the first series of What If? by Marvel Comics. Now with Secret Wars looming on the horizon and bringing back some of these versions of familiar characters, we started on our Facebook feed highlighting the covers for the series, but news, reviews, and previews got in the way and I can't be certain that I've kept them in order or even where I stopped. Rather than be sad and just quit, here is a gallery of the covers from What If? featuring some really good covers by Mike Golden, Bill Sienkiewicz, John Byrne, and Jack Kirby.
Because I'm anticipating Secret Wars a whole lot, I decided to read one of the books leading up to it. I'm going to try to remain Spoiler-free, but some elements may be considered spoilers due to the nature of the story.
Fantastic Four #265 April 1984 Sitting on my computer desktop are two pages from an early issue of Sensational She-Hulk. I won't saw which issue they're from, since I plan on making that a review very soon. In the set-up for that review, I figured I should go to the moment that I realized her potential, when she joined the Fantastic Four. SYNOPSIS: The Trapster parachutes onto the roof of the Baxter Building, in an attempt to prove himself by taking out the Fantastic Four on his own. From his point of view we see the Baxter Building layout as he descends through the levels of the Fantastic Four's headquarters, oblivious to the fact that the building's computer defenses are tracking him keeping him from sensitive areas and jamming his paste gun. As he enters the residential level, he realizes that the Fantastic Four aren't home and he's being beaten by an empty building. Spooked by Franklin's caretaker robot, he trips on one of Franklin's toys, barely making his way to the elevator to the lobby, where he's defeated by their android receptionist Roberta, who calls the police to come pick him up.
