What kind of world is it that we live in when we are so blessed with choice that it has become impossible to determine the best comic book superhero movie? Because, let me tell you, the Dark Knight is awesome. It completely gives Iron Man a run for its money. Heath Ledger was the best Joker ever-- no laughing gas, no stupidity, just sheer broken insanity-- but he couldn't have carried the movie, and the awesome performance by all the other major actors here really make for a quality movie. I think I would pick Iron Man as my favorite, although I'm not sure it's fair to compare-- the Dark Knight is a very dark movie, in terms of world view and morality, whereas Iron Man is much more traditional.

Okay, so I've been working on this a bit. I love GURPS, but I stopped using it for this. While I wanted some mechanics in my kids' first RPG, GURPS was just too much. For one thing, the mechanics were more rigid that I wanted, and I felt that by throwing out so much of the rules and home ruling so much, I was probably just using the wrong system.
