MARVEL RPG

Margaret Weis Productions is promoting the upcoming Marvel Heroic Roleplaying game with a PDF of the Captain America datafile. Looks like a nice version of the Cortex system.
Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Promo: Captain America (Steve Rogers)
70 years ago, one of Marvel Comics' most popular and endearing characters burst upon the scene: CAPTAIN AMERICA. Created by comic book legends Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, Cap's popularity is at an all-time high. As part of our lead-up to the release of the Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Basic Game in February 2012 we are pleased to give you a sneak peek of the Sentinel of Liberty.

I think the Cortex system is a wonderful 'outside-the-box' system now where it started out as almost just another Savage Worlds. It seems to have become an ideal system for the variety of licensed products produced using it. It's good to see Margaret Weis' company succeeding here. It will also good to see a Marvel RPG with healthy support like it had under TSR (twas my gateway RPG).
