Default Re: Does DFRPG more and more resemble a super hero game to you

Personally I think the opposite is more true. Super Hero games are really reskinned fantasy games. You've got these mythical archetypes straight out of old folklore. For instance, Batman could be seen as a Robin Hood reskin, a wealthy talented member of the elite fighting the corrupt to protect the common man. Super Man can be seen as a Hercules Archetype, his father, Jor El coming from an unreachable location that we normal folks would consider magical and fantastic. Sent to live amongst the mortals, constantly outdoing himself with incredible feats each greater than the last. He could also fill the Jesus Archetype since he did die saving the world and was ressurected as well.

Anyway, that's just how I look at it.
