One of the latest in the Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Game line, this supplement is meant to introduce numerous younger and less earth shaking characters to the game. For the most part, these are characters that the average comic book reader isn't fully aware of, yet in some cases, they shaped important aspects of the universe. (Such as The New Warriors causing the event that spawned the entire Civil War storyline.) This is primarily a listing of the canonical points of these characters, and how they fit into the universe.
On the plus side, these are nicely in depth write-ups on these characters, complete with illustrations of them from an assortment of artists. If you have an interest in learning more about Stature, Ricochet, Hulkling, or the Power Pack kids, this is more than eager to share. Think of it as the latest supplement to the Marvel Handbook Of The Universe, with game stats added in to allow to bring the characters to your game.
On the down side, that is about all this is. There is little more than character write ups, and some hints about how these characters fit into the established storyline from Marvel. Everything is fiercely canon, and there is little room for straying from said storyline. And yet, there is no real storyline laid out here, nor are there maps to be used. As much as I appreciate the chance to dig into these characters, there is little here to convince me that I am wrong to be working to convert these characters for use in my Champions campaign.
Bottom Line - If you are seriously invested in the Marvel universe, or even just the Civil War story, get this product. If you are looking for a full supplement to help you set up and run Civil War as a campaign, look a bit farther afield.
