is a RPG
designed to simulate and function in a four-color comic book
world. Characters are designed around a "schtick" or "theme" rather then defined "classes". Champions
has a very flexible framework of powers/skills, allowing almost any kind of character to be created. Like most comic book heroes, characters and villians are frequently knocked out of the fight but seldom killed. Character generation is point based.
Champions has been ported to a fantasy world under the title "Fantasy Hero[?]", which has similar advantages and disadvantages to the origional Champions game.
Advantages: Extremely flexible character generation. Well balanced.
Limitations: Meant to simulate four-color comics. Harder to simulate a lethal/darker game than other systems.
