Back in the beginning of the year, I proposed a game to CoG. Here’s the basic premise: you’re the identical twin of a superhero, and when your twin gets nabbed by the bad guys, you have to take your twin’s place in order to rescue them. And also to keep anyone from realising that they’ve actually got the REAL superhero in their clutches because then bad things will happen.
The overall feel is modern, relatively realistic. Superpowers do manifest occasionally, but are exceedingly rare: those who have them either don’t bother to cultivate their abilities, or turn to crime. Our hero doesn’t even realise that their own physical prowess constitutes a superpower until it’s pointed out to them that normal people don’t master athletic skills that quickly, or retain them that long without constant practice/training. There isn’t much of a culture surrounding superheroes in this setting … it’s more like the original 1939 Batman, where the superhero in question is basically a civilian vigilante and possibly the only one of their kind in the entire world.
But I need a title for this. I made one up in a hurry (“The Swashbuckler Rides Again!”) for the proposal, but I don’t like it, and CoG thinks I need something a little more … superhero-ish. Any ideas?
