Every comic book collector has gotten into at least one argument with a friend over who'd kick whose butt in a Superhero duel, especially when the characters are cross-company.
Overpower is the first game to actually give us a chance to prove who'd win!
The game is simple; you take two overpower characters and pit them against eachother in one-on-one Overpower.
Rules to One-on-One Overpower:
So now you know the rules, but knowing is only half the battle.
- Each person selects one hero. Non-IQ versions are not allowed. X-Babies and Beyonder are not allowed (it is virtually impossible to KO the X-Babies, and since Beyonder would have no teammates, he would also have no special cards or power grid).
- That character's Hits to KO number is determined.
- To determine Hits to KO, the power grid total is subtracted from 39. 19-point heros start at the normal 20, 16-point heros, get a bonus 23, and 23-point heros need only 16 points to KO.
- If the chosen character has a inherent that grants him a KO modifier, that takes precedence over the new number, i.e., Morbius needs 30 points to KO.
- Teamwork, Tactic and Ally cards are not allowed.
- No special cards with the word 'teammate' may be played, except 'teammate may avoid one attack'. Those cards become personal avoids, with all other restrictions remaining. For instance, War Machine's 'Shield Teammate' becomes "War Machine may avoid one Energy attack of 9 or less".
- There are no Missions, Events or conceding.
- Each deck must consist of at least 25 cards.
- The last person alive wins.
The other half, the fun half, is when you pummel your opponent into mush!
This week, I've got two duels for you, mostly because I forgot to add one last time even though I wrote it. The first is the battle of the ringed men. Read Mandarin vs. Green Lantern in the streets of Madripoor!
The other is the battle of the super-rich industrialists; one dresses in the finest Armani's, the other in 18th century English dress. That's right, Lex Luthor vs. Black King!
