For anyone interested in running or developing an alternate timeline for Wild Talents, Progenitor is a must have. Seriously. The year by year timelines of what was going on in America since the mid sixties is key for anyone interested in developing a world where super powers have changed how the world operates.
I rarely do this, but I read progenitor cover to cover. The narrative was highly interesting and informative, the characters were compelling, and the personalities were deep and three dimensional. This last quality owed at least some credit to Stolze's decision to use historical figures as the basis for many of the recurring characters.
The book also contains a mountain of interesting characters with interesting powers. Anyone looking for more inspiration how to design interesting powers could do a lot worse than plundering character designs and powers for use in their campaigns.
I can't recommend progenitor highly enough for people with an interest in alternate history metahumanity stories.
