Marvel has announced the Marvel Multiverse RPG for release in 2022 . Not suprisingly, there will be three differnt covers. I am just suprised there are not 7 or more and that one is a 1:25 variant copy.
By my count this is at least the third Marvel RPG that has released. TSR did one back in the 1980s. Wizard Publications put one out about 10 years ago and Margaret Weiss Productions released one about 5 or so years ago. There may have been one or two others but if there are, I do not remember them.
The MCU and super heroes in general, have always been hard to replicate in RPG form On one hand, you have characters with power off the charts like Superman and Thanos and on the other hand you have "street level" heroes like Elektra and Robin. How do you make a balanced system that allows players to create both types of characters? I still think Champions was one of the best RPG systems for accomplihing this and even it would not easly let you make a Hulk-type character.

Horrified: American Edition
A new version of Horified with American monsters will release later this year. Some of the monsters included are Mothman, Bigfoot, the Ozark Howler and the Banshee of the Badlands. That last one the designers had to dig for as the only reference I was able to find regarding it were a couple of posts on assited websites, with the original reference dating back to about 1907. Anyhow, if you like Horrified, keep an eye out for this American version
