Powers have a power level of certain types detailed on the card. If the power level of your combined power of 1 type is higher than the difficulty level of the scenario you can defeat it. Mind you that you can only have two powers in front of you at any time unless a card lets you have more. You can discard powers as many times as you want when it’s your time to act to put new powers on the table.

Spells can be used when it’s your time to act unless they say otherwise, they literally say what they can be used for, when and how.

Draw a scenario

The stupidest player can start by drawing a scenario face-up; they must then read the full card out loud. Scenario’s have a difficulty level, a number of victory points and a type requirement; they also have a special effect that happens when the scenario starts.

Meet the makers

It all started when Gils decided to create a superhero based card game. The idea was to have a game based on scenarios (problems) and having superpowers in your hand that you would need to solve them. With his very twisted brain, Gils quickly created cards that didn`t fit in a game of heroes. It was soon decided that this was not a game of justice but a game of injustice!

Vincent joined the team because of his many years of experience as an illustrator and graphic designer. The two cousins decided to catch up, and when Vincent played the game, he was hooked and couldn’t resist drawing such an artistic game.
