Game and Story Use

  • Such characters might make interesting NPCs for the players to meet.
    • If you are feeling sacrilegious, and willing to risk a bit of silliness, you may have the fictional characters be parodies of their famous reputations.
  • Rub the serial numbers off them, and they might be good models for a PC.
  • Or, they might make good members of a League of Extraordinary Whatevers
  • Warning: Overuse of Fictional Characters may lead to Roy Thomas Syndrome.
