I've heard about this, and it sounds like a good idea. Sounded like one 
when we did it (complete with stand-up counters, but in black and white) 
as In The Name of Justice! about two years ago. (Still available FREE on 
our web site at http://plainlabel.galstar.com)  :)

And yes, we are talking about doing a version of it for the new system, 
once we get the fantasy genre covered.

Seriously, I look forward to buying WildStrike!, as I love anything to do 
with superheroes. (I can't handle Champions -- Hero System moves much too 
slow for me, and I can't seem to get into Fuzion. But this looks more 
interesting. Besides, I can always use the stand up counters.)

I WELCOME any truly new and interesting releases, and this looks like it 
qualifies. Every good game out there makes our industry stronger.
