“Oh, you better watch out . . . The Incredible Hulk is rampaging through midtown Manhattan near Rockefeller Center. Why? Maybe he’s being mind-controlled by The Leader. Maybe he’s just mad. Whatever the situation, the heroes need to subdue the Hulk. Good luck.”
What is it? A holiday-themed rampaging battle royale … starring the Hulk! Assuming I have enough players, I plan on running this Mini-Event on Thursday, December 26 on Google+, starting at 8:00 p.m. EST. Players may choose any hero datafile from the Basic Game or Civil War and its supplements. If you are interested in joining us to play, contact me via Google+, Twitter or by email.

No one signed up. So the Event is CANCELLED. Pity.
As it starts to get cold outside and the winter holidays rapidly approach, one begins to dream about Marvel holiday one-shots. Just yesterday, Plot Points posted a new Event How Doctor Doom Stole Christmas! It’s a very short Event created by RT Goodman and based on the Scott Lobdell and John Byrne 1991 short comic I’ll Be Doom For Christmas.
In this same vein, I performed my own quick search and discovered this gem: Christmas With the Hulk (which I have already mentally re-named Hulk Smash X-Mas!) created by Thomas Denagh. It looks to be a really fun, lively rampage through downtown holiday Manhattan. And this looks like the Event that I may end up running this December 23 or 26. Stay tuned for that.
Another thought is the outline of an Event posted on the MWP Forums. I must confess I haven’t read the thread closely yet, so I can’t really speak to it myself. But it’s probably something worth looking into. And there are yet two more resources for you to check out: David Thomas’ X-Mas Milestones & Unlockables and Duck Call Lass’ write-up of Father Christmas Himself.
Joyeux Noel et bonne année!
