I always hated the ones with big, wild, loose hair. I HAVE BIG WILD HAIR and if I were in COMBAT it would be a huge fucking liability. Tie that shit up.

YES!!
Also long free flowing hair seems even more sexier when you always see your bad ass female warriors with their hair bound up for serious fighting.

All my Marvel RPG characters wore full-body onesies of Mr. Fantastic's unstable molecule cloth under whatever other armor, usually a cross between an Iron Man suit and the Thing's skin. :P There was no half-naked malarky with exposed flesh and crazy fucking hair. This was a SCIENCE, god damn it. An ART!

I'm a shitty RPG-er because I take this shit too seriously. But my characters never died from stupid, god damn it.

Never died from stupid? Ever? That's just sadness.

That means not enough HEROISM was applied.

It's been bouncing around my facebook for a couple days now.

I like this!

I wish the webpage was a little more grown-up, though. It doesn't load very fast and it's hard to read.

Really, what's the point of playing if you can't get your ass habitually kidnapped by the villains, or lose a fight because you insisted on using fishhooks for your weapon?

It's only really a shitty way of playing if no one had fun because of it.

One day I shall run online table top RPG for PDers.

Serious can be good, but sometimes taking a character seriously means acting stupidly.  Not everyone has a high int and wis :)

or despite being highly intelligent does things that appear to others as highly stupid because of that character's culture or upbringing.
