Doesn't have to be supers or sci fi.
Please PM me if to send links. Thanks.
Isn't that what this thread is? Neither is official, of course. If you're looking for an official product, I'm afraid you're out of luck. There are multiple GURPS supplements to help do it yourself, and that is what the people making these threads have used, but they don't have the license to DC Superheroes so they cannot officially stat out Bronze Age Superman (or whomever). GURPS (Third Edition) did get the rights Wild Cards, for the record...

Anyway, if you are interested in running a GURPS campaign featuring superheroes (or superhero-ish characters), GURPS Powers and GURPS Supers are highly recommended. GURPS Powers is, in my opinion, feels like a missing piece of the Basic Set. It actually handles a variety of Powers, which is good if you're a fan of "kitchen sink" style settings like Marvel or DC's superhero multiverses. Supers gives you the framework for building superhero archetypes; it will be up to you, though, to crunch the numbers and flesh them out into Superman, Batman, etc. Be aware it is pretty difficult because even when you can settle on a single iteration of a character, writers tend to have Batman/Superman/etc. do whatever the story calls for, rather than thinking "Oh, right. There is no way he can actually lift that much. I'd better make it lighter or approach the problem from another angle."

I meant, the Marvel one has an unofficial netbook with a compilation of the characters & stats is there an equivalent to that for DC. I know there is no "official" version & they don't have the rights. If there is one, please send me the link.
Also if there are other unofficial (but well compiled) netbooks like for other comics or TVseries/movie characters, etc. I know there is one for Highlander & Star Wars. Perhaps there are more out there. Please advise. Thanks.

The unofficial netbook was created by the same person who created and updates the thread on these message boards. I do not believe any such thing exists for the DC version.
