CJ's Supers: Updated 8/22/2016, DC Master Set

This is my supers thread, nothing much, nothing exciting or new, I used to display some other people's supers here, but I have decided that reviews of other people's customs deserves another thread, or a blog, ooooo..... A blog sounds nice. Anyways, these are only a few of my customs, (I am going to begin collecting everything I have made and played with over the course of time) I plan on updating at least once a month.

Also, I can't make cards, sooo... bear with me. (look at Ixe's customs, they are great even though they have no cards) I will try to use the MCC as much as possible in this case, they are soooooooo helpful.

I've also tried to make every single one of my heros compatable with C3G as well, they may not synergize perfectly, but you can take any army of my Super customs and should be able to battle it against a C3G and official army without too much friction.

As for how I make my my customs, for costing, I use Giantslayers point costing formula, then use theoryscaping and playtesting to determine point costs. As for wording on the cards, I try to get as close to official as I can without spending too much time on it. I do wording in 3 phases, Phase 1 is a rough draft of what I want the power to do in a somewhat official format, Phase 2 consists of me fixing mistakes and moving closer and closer to official style wording, with Phase 3 moving even closer to the desired style.

Any and all feedback is appreciated, considered, and made note of.

My Classics!

My Misc. Supers! (Boosters? Exclusives? Individuals? Individual Boosters? I'll think of a name for these at some point...)

Ok... Revisions are finished, ready to go!

EDIT: I was gonna write long descriptions for each character, but then I decided that maybe that should be left to everyone else to critique my customs. If you have any thoughts on what I should do, let me know!

Alright, all revisions and balancing issues have been worked out. If anyone comes across any issues with my customs or if you happen to play with them I'd love to hear about it! Like, seriously, I don't want to be the only person who posts in my customs thread.

Also, design notes coming soon!

Took me half a year to get back onto this site and finish up the design notes, but I have finally done it. And I see I'm still all alone in this little abode of mine... Oh well, at least I have all my Tarn buddies here with me.

Re: CJ's Supers: Updated 8/22/2016, DC Master Set

I am not a DC guy so I can't really comment on all the characters but I like your design style, simple and straight forward. The language in your power is pretty close to the original cards and definitely gets the idea across. I think using Giant-slayers points costing system is a great way to go since I do the same thing. I guess my only minor critique would be that some of the language in powers can be further fine tuned. EX

Yeah, wording is my kryptonite. I don't know why, and I can't trace it back to anything, but I use the word "dealt" inappropriately when I shouldn't use it at all in Heroscape. I'm trying to shake off the habit but it keeps haunting me like a thing from Bleakewoode.

Also, you think my designs are simple and straightforward? Great! I always think my designs are too complex and I keep trying to simplify them, I didn't realize I was succeeding! Thanks for the feedback!

I use Gary's Heroscape site a lot to use the original wording for powers and also adapt the the original powers to be used in different ways. I think it very quick and easy to use to find the wording on all the cards. For ex. If a character has a poison ability, I may use the Drow's power as a basis.

Oh yeah, I usually just look up whatever cards have a similar power and copy-paste-edit, except I like to make original powers... That's usually where things get bent out of shape, and then sometimes hammered back into shape.
