Super Thursday

Being in the middle of a week long heat advisory, I thought it appropriate to do a desert themed game. In previous issues, Emperor Ape had stolen the sarcophagus of the Black Pharaoh. So after he was able to build his Simian Ray that turned most of the Earth's population into monkeys. The few remaining heroes, led by Doc Titan have surmised the link between the two. Emperor Ape used the strange black material the pharaoh's tomb was made of to fuel his ray. A few deposits of the substance still pepper the area the tomb was discovered. Now our heroes race to grab some more of this X-matter to undo the effects of the Simian Ray.
From the start, our Heroes got ponded. As soon as A.J.A.X. took to the air, he was blasted out of the sky by Killshot and his henchmen.
Killshot did this most of the game. Gunning down heroes.
Behemoth super-leaped to the tomb and grabbed some x-matter before the heroes could react, while Eggsterminator scrambled the brains of several of the heroes.

AJAX, Mr Wonderful, the Crimson Cowl and Herakles approach the ruins
 Mr. Wonderful and Herakles tried valiantly to stem the villainous tide, but to no avail.
Hero Sandwich managed to escape with one measelly scrap of x-matter. Hope that's enough?
Mechagor uses a statue as a super-club
Behemoth and Herakles square off. An equal match

Next issue: Assault on Emperor Ape's Satellite!
Behemoth is an homage to one of my favorites from Villains and Vigilantes. I hope to some day recreate all my heroes and villains from this 80s RPG into SS2.

That Egyptian setting is really good! It makes a very unusual skirmish encounter with your minis, particularly like the guy with the ray guns.

I think this encounter defines the concept of Steampunk. Way cool.
