The Super Powers Companion is a nice, quick read that is basically 2.0 of the Necessary Evil sourcebook, featuring new rules and some new and modified powers. If you want to play a superheroes game but don’t care about the background of the Necessary Evil setting, this is the way to go. Some powers are expanded upon, while others are changed a bit. There’s also some nice new rules for lairs, which make Professor X look like he spent a lot of edges to get the X-Mansion up to the level it is now. The lairs are an awesome addition to the game. One really nifty thing they added was the ability to tweak how many power points you get to spend on powers based on how powerful you want your heroes. It’s just as easy to take a drawback to make another hero not have as many points to spend on powers so they can play the sidekick role if they want. There’s also a ton of new villains, fully fleshed out with all kinds of powers to fight your heroes.

If you already have the Necessary Evil book, you will not find anything really new in this book apart from some realy neat rule options (like street\cosmic level of play, power distribution rules and etc.) and some colourful NPC's including Baba Yaga.

Yet if you don't have NE, this book is a must for anyone who loves comics and wants more super in the old vanila superpower background. All powers are well written and as usual for SW can be adjusted on the fly. I got some really nice stories by incorporatin this rules in my WWII campaign and Sundered Skies.

I had some trouble initially with the secured format of the PDF but that has been resolved. Bookmarks and layers are now working. Special thanks to Jim at Studio 2 Publishing and Joel at PEG for their spectacular support!

This is a great resource for Savage Worlds with a ton of awesome powers. It's very easy to imagine a character and bring it to life with the rules in this book. The powers are quite comprehensive and cover Absorption to Whirlwind and everything in between, with a good variety of options for many powers as well. Of note, about half the book is comprised of example supers ranging in rank from novice to legendary. For Supers in Savage Worlds this is the book to get!

If you're a Savage Worlds fan, you need it.

If you're looking for a supers game that's less crunchy than HERO or Mutants & Masterminds, try Savage Worlds.

Basically, everything positive about Savage Worlds -- ease of prep, speed of play -- but with expanded supers rules.
