In which I attempt to go through my DC Comics collection (mostly running from 1983 through 1997) and hash out stats for all characters in Mayfair's DC Heroes RPG terms. How is this done? Check out the Ground Rules. New! as of 25/08/06.
All entries by series/issue number, but also available is a Character
Index. All series available not yet listed.

-Characters are listed alphabetically by codename, or by first name. A distinction is made between pre- and post-Crisis versions of a character, including post-Zero Hour versions when necessary.
-Note that the transition between pre- and post-Crisis versions of a character doesn't necessarily occur with the Crisis. The post-Crisis Hawkman, for example, does not appear until the Hawkworld mini-series, years later. Similarly, some characters appeared prior to the Crisis, but were not particularly changed by the event (most of the Titans, for example).
-Characters with more than one version (Elseworlds, but also to represent changes in powers and storylines) are linked to their own index, itself linked to all versions as well as to various notes on slight or temporary changes in their stats. The number of versions is indicated in the main Character index.
-Elseworlds are coded by a number reminiscent of pre-Crisis terminology. If Crisis on Infinite Earths basically numbered Earths 1 through 5, then Elseworlds start at Earth-6. "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?" and The Dark Knight Returns are considered to be the first 2 Elseworlds for purposes of this index. The divergent realities appearing during Zero Hour are marked as Earth-01, 02, etc. in their order of appearance on this website.
-When a character has already appeared with those attributes, a cross-reference to the appropriate ones will be included. Duplication will only occur at the start of a series index, and only for the star of the book.
-Whenever possible, statistics for characters have been pulled from DC Heroes sourcebooks and adventures (credit given). I have edited most of these however to represent a specific time in a character's life, or have had to extrapolate modern statistics from 1st edition source material. Any changes will be so marked in red script.
-I will never pilfer character run-downs from other fans on the web however. If no official source material is available, I will design the characters myself.
-Do not be surprised if pre-Crisis statistics appear to be inflated, this is normal for an era in which Superman could juggle planets.
