Last week Green Ronin Publishing released the newest book for the DC Adventures role-playing game — DC Adventures Heroes & Villains, Vol. 2! This particular volume includes RPG statistics for everyone’s favorite fissioning dastardly dog, Multiplex! Dude, I love this character! Sometimes he’s clever, sometimes he’s ridiculous, but he always makes a great foil for Firestorm! Seriously, he was Firestorm’s first supervillain and they share an origin. He’s essentially a “dark mirror” of Firestorm. That’s a formula for the perfect arch-nemesis!
Below you’ll find the statistics for Multiplex from Green Ronin’s DC Adventures Heroes & Villains, Vol. 2:
I love this book! It’s over 300 full-color pages packed with information and beautiful illustrations culled from years of DC comics. It should be noted that statistics included are based upon the pre-Flashpoint DC Universe. For me this book is a melding of two great worlds – DC Comics and Mutants & Masterminds. I’ve been an avid reader of DC Comics for over 25 years, I’ve previously role-played the Mayfair Games’ DC Heroes RPG & West End Games’ DC Universe RPG, and finally I role-played the Mutants & Masterminds system for about three years. So for me DC Comics and Mutants & Masterminds are two great tastes that taste great together!
Here is the description of the book from the Green Ronin website:
The DC Universe features a dazzling array of characters who have thrilled readers for generations. The two-volume Heroes & Villains set details more than 500 of those characters for use in your DC Adventures games, all featuring character stats fully compatible with the award-winning Mutants & Masterminds RPG. Vol. 2 picks up where Vol. 1 left off, covering characters from the League of Assassins and Legion of Super-Heroes to Zatanna and Zauriel. With Heroes & Villains in-hand, you will never lack for characters to use in your game, from heroic guest-stars and villainous foes to heroes suitable as ready-to-play characters. You’ll also have a comprehensive guide for modeling your own DC characters based on existing examples along with a collection of animals and monsters useful for mimics and shapechangers. It’s the comprehensive guide to the heroes and villains of the DC Universe no fan should be without!
Order your own copy from your local comic book shop! Alternatively, order a copy through the Green Ronin Publishing online catalog. The website still says “Pre-Order”, but the book has been released.
