The Marvel Super Heroes Advanced Set version of Project Wideawake, Children of the Atom called itself the official guidebook to mutants. That means the good and the bad. And there is a lot of bad in this one.

Compare 100 pages of this to 200+ of Champions Worldwide. Great value character density thanks to the triple column format and simple but descriptive game stats of MSH. Best value monster manual style supplement I ever came across that wasn’t a GHOTMU.

It wasn’t just my imagination over the years how good a deal this one was :-

1.84 Character Density [Otherwise know as The Leader]
