Zatannurday: Superbabes

Been talking about Superbabes all week.  Since I have done Batwoman and Wonder Woman I should also do my other favorite DC Superbabe.

Like with Tarot, Willow and Tara, Zatanna has most of her points in Magic.  Though at Zee's level she gets to be really powerful.

At 24th level Zee packs a punch.  Most of her points went into powers as expected.  The issue here is Zee's magic is so flexible she can in theory do just about anything.  This is not a new issue, she has the same problem in most games, but here it begins to stand out.  She is full 15 levels more than Willow and Tara and only outclasses them in raw magical talent.

I based these stats on these stats:

I've enjoyed this week of Superbabes love. I do remember the guys who wrote were pretty decent. Beyond the "good girl art" style of the game, later supplements have stats for the AC Comics versions of Golden Age heroes such as the Green Lama. AC Comics was one of the first comic companies to dip into the public domain.

It's been a lot of fun. I have one more for today!

Thanks for reviewing this old gem- nice to see someone put it through its paces, and it seems you genuinely 'got' what the game was all about. Excellent review, and thank you!
