Subj: Marvel RPG review 9: All this and WWII

This is another series for the advanced game. These seemed to come out in series of the 3, with much longer, around 30 page, adventure booklets.

The suggested team for this is the West Coast Avengers although you can use your own team. It involves a plot where the avengers discover some time-traveling Nazis who want to take alien technology back to WWII. Of course the avengers go back in time to stop them. Along the way, they meet of with the Invaders in Italy and launch a two pronger assult. Villains they face include the Red Skull, Baron Zemo and Baron Blood.

Although it has a high concept the overall story and adventure is kinda meh. Since it involves the WCA in a time travel story it really feels like "been there, done that". Also, how many times do modern heroes have to go back to WWII? It feels like overkill. If writers are dead set about having a WWII adventure then why bother with time travel at all? Just have an RPG staring the Invaders.

Overall, not a recommend.
