Berlin: 1998

In an alternate universe, Earth is ravaged by World War Three between the Western Earth Treaty Organisation and the Global Socialist State. When an alien space craft crashes in the radioactive wasteland that was once Berlin, two teams of superheroes race to capture the technology for themselves. 

The radioactive wasteland that was once Berlin. 
A light flashes and a wheezing sound fills the air...
Something starts to stir in the crashed ship...
The distant hum of jets can be heard in the street. 
The WETO Super Soliders: Hulk, Aquaman, The Doctor and Snake Plissken. 
The Earth Defense League (Defending the universe from the Earth); Lobo, Groot, Ronan the Accuser and Hawkman. 
GSS Superheroes; Crimson Dynamo, Kraven the Hunter, Green arrow and Wonder Woman. 
Hulk makes straight for the ship. 
Kraven tries the back alleys. 
Only to come face-to-face with Ronan the Accuser! 
The Doctor takes cover behind the rampaging Hulk. 
Green Arrow lines up his shot. 
The Doctor falls under a barrage of arrows! 
Hawkman rushes to his Leader's aid, as Ronan struggles to hit the agile Russian Noble. 
Snake slithers through the cover of some tank traps. 

Groot looks for some humans to prune. 
Glorious Socialist Warrior Crimson Dynamo moves to secure spaceship whilst comrades distract capitalists and aliens. 
The Main Man waits in ambush. 

Hulk mad that funny British man was shot! 
Hulk throws a nearby ruin at Green Arrow, somehow missing. 
In the shadow of a ruined building, aliens and superhumans clash, wielding whatever comes to hand. 
Hawkman smashes a drum over Wonder Woman's head. She laughs. 

Aquaman hunts for the missing archer. 
Green arrow has moved to ambush Snake. 
Towering titans of power meet in the ruins. 
Green Arrow and Snake exchange fire, bullets and arrows fly. 
Dynamo opens fire on the tree-like Groot. 
Groot takes exception and Soviet Technology clashes with alien might. 
The earth quakes as powerful warriors pound on each other with all their might. 
Aquaman remonstrates with Green Arrow for the shafts loosed in his direction. 
Somehow, Kraven continues to endure the best the Kree Void Navy can throw at him. 
The street becomes a battlefield as the "less" dangerous Super-people clash. 
A grappling arrow helps Green Arrow relocate to a better vantage point. 
The mighty Hawkman proves to be too much for the Amazon Princess. 
Hulk smashes a nearby building over Lobo's head!

Hulk is strongest one there is! 
Hulk also makes a good target. 
The mighty accuser is laid low by the King of the Jungle. 
Surrounded by foul aliens, Crimson Dynamo targets his orbital strike on his own location!
Hawkman cannot withstand the barrage, though Groot is left standing. 
The WETO heroes regroup and prepare to take the ship.

Hulk guards the prize as Green Arrow fells Plissken... or does he? 
"Snake? Snake! Snaaaaake!"

A recovered Hawkman and Groot prove to be too much for the Dyamo. 
"Snake Plissken? I heard you were dead!" 
Kraven falls to Atlantean might and American sass. 
Groot starts for the two interlopers that want his ship.

Hulk and Hawkman battle in the ruins. 

"I! AM! GROOT!" 
"Hulk smash aliens with building!" 
Snake wonders if discretion may not be the better part of valor. 
Snake empties a magazine into Groot and is surprised as anyone when the creature falls. 

So the idea of this game was to have a little fun and start playtesting some heroes for the big game in 2015. In the first regard, the game was a big success. As for the second, maybe I need to start bringing someone else in on this, instead of trying to do it all myself. Hulk, Plissken and Groot worked well, Wonder Woman really needs more work and many of the others really didn't get a fair go.
Looks like I'll have to play more games... what a shame. :)
