Hero Datafile: Firestar

When I got the assignment to do this Datafile, I thought “Piece of cake, I will just take Human Torch, change some small bits and done!” The job turned out to be not so simple.

Although not a major player on the 616 universe, Angelica Jones proved to be very complex and tridimensional. She has had some romantic relationships with other heroes, was briefly a villain, later became an Avenger and had some health issues regarding her powers.

She is also a cross-media character like Ms. Lion and Angent Coulson, since she originaly debuted in the cartoon Spiderman and his Amazing Friends fighting crime with the web-head himself and Iceman.

    Great Datafile! My daughter really enjoys Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends (hurray Netflix). So I’ve had some time to give this file some thought and I think you nailed it.

    The only thing I think I would have liked to have seen different is the option to finally join the X-Men as an option at 10 XP.

      I thought of that option, but keeping only the refusing option seemed more fun. I you want i can custom that millestone for you.

    The wording on Last Resort looks a little bad. Have you considered replacing “step up +2 your Physical and Emotional Stress” with “step up your Physical and Emotional Stress twice”?

      Since you are stepping up AND doubling your power dice i don’t think it is too much. Also it’s heavly tied with a milestone path.

      It’s a last resort, it’s not supposed to be used all the time!

    Terrifc write-up. You always make your heroes very playable. This one will go into the unofficial pile to print and have on hand. Thanks!

    Could we get this as a printer friendly datafile? I just noticed last night, that she was missing from my GenCon binder.
