The next five Marvel Characters are all allies and enemies of Captain America.
Iron Man's support team and three more Avengers up next.
Up next: three more X-Men Characters (one brand new to OP), and two classic Marvel archrival organizations.
The next five Characters include two Inhumans, two stalwart allies of Thor, and a Secret Avenger.
So I've been meaning to post a Banned List for a while.  It's not very long, and its purpose is really just to highlight some conflicts that exist in Third Edition compared to the original game as written.  So without further ado:


That's it for now.


I've mentioned elsewhere that I've incorporated most of the optional rules from the fanmade Power Balance expansion set into Third Edition.  Since certain new mechanics in OP3 rely heavily on those optional rules, and the Power Balance site has gone down a couple times, I thought it prudent to reproduce a list of the rules here, with my own additions.

  • MultiPower Power cards can only be played if ALL of the Character's Power Grid Ratings meet or exceed the level of the Power cards.  For example, Batman can't play a level 3 or higher MultiPower Power card because he only has a 2 in Energy.
  • Since there are such high requirements to play them, level 5 MultiPower Power cards are no longer considered One Per Deck.
  • Any-Power Power cards of every level are no longer considered One Per Deck.
  • Your deck cannot contain both Any-Power and MultiPower cards.  This applies to Power cards, Tactic and Universe cards, but not Specials or Aspects.  You can choose between an Any-Power deck and a MultiPower deck, but you can't mix and match.
  • Since I've changed Teamwork cards to Tactics, and Artifacts to Universe cards, Legacy cards that generally refer to Tactic or Universe cards are considered to refer to either.  For example, Cyclops' Ground Blast would force discarding of Tactic or Universe cards, chosen when played.  Eventually all of those cards will be updated, revised, or outright replaced in OP3, but it's an ongoing process.  Legacy cards that refer to a specific type of Tactic or Universe card, such as Teamwork cards, still affect only those cards.
  • All subsequent attacks from Tactic and Universe cards are now considered "follow-up" attacks, and must be made simultaneously with the attack that allowed them, before defense is chosen.  This does not apply to Special cards that allow "additional" attacks.  Additional attacks are still played and defended one at a time.
  • Attacks against Battlesites now count toward Venture Total, but only half the amount (rounded down) they do against Characters.
  • Battlesites' Hits to KO is now 20 points, and they can be Spectrum KO'd with three Power Types.
  • Only one of each Special code can be used with a Battlesite.
  • Any Character Specials can only be included in your deck if you're using the Marvel Manhattan or New Earth Location as a Battlesite.  It doesn't matter which.  You can play DC Any Character Specials with Marvel Manhattan and vice versa, but once the Battlesite is KO'd, Any Character Specials have to be discarded as normal.
  • Homebases allow you to build a team using any three of the Characters listed on them, as well as any one additional Character that shares an Affiliation with that Homebase.
  • Homebase teams can total up to 80 points, as opposed to the normal 76.
  • For Homebases without an Affiliation, your team can consist of any three of the Characters listed, plus one additional Marvel or DC character, whichever applies.  However, these Homebase teams can only total up to 76 points.

Hey, i was just wondering when the new marvel expansion was coming.  I have gone through withdrawals and the stages of grief like 8 times since you had new cards like a year ago.  I'm going to go cry now haha.
overpower-3rd Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I am slowly but surely still working on writing up all the Specials.  So far have most of the Any-Characters and 11 of the 50 new characters done.  Plus the previous 50 are each getting a new Special (which are mostly done), and I'm also currently trying to figure out how I want to present Missions and Events.  Can't make any promises, but I'll likely be able to start posting new cards within the next... couple months?  It's a very involved process and I am just one guy after all.  Be patient.  ;)

Nostalgic memories of the OverPower game have been creeping back for me. I used to slap together homemade cards with MS Paint back before the turn of the millennium, and now.... I stumble upon this. Can you tell me how to make my own custom cards? I have NO experience with Photoshop or the like.
overpower-3rd Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oof, sorry.  If you haven't ever used Photoshop, I don't think I could help you.  I'll eventually get around to posting my template icons and whatnot, but a full tutorial isn't something I really have the time for.  There are a few more guys on the forums who make custom cards however...

These are amazing. I have been playing op for twenty years and used to have thousands of homemade cards until my computer crashed.  Keep up the good work.  Any plans to do the rest of the guardians of the galaxy and teen titans like raven and beast boy?
overpower-3rd Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
For sure, the Guardians and Titans are coming.

Found my Deadpool Marvel Max comics, and I have an idea for a Marvel ally character: "Hydra Bob".  XD  And if you're not familiar with him, you'll probably mirror my emoticon when you do read the first trade of that series.  Hilarious!!  I would say Hammerhead would be decent as a character, but he'd probably be better suited as a special for a Maggia team character card.
overpower-3rd Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh ya, I know Hydra Bob.  He'd be perfect as an Ally card.  I think someone like Hammerhead would be too, because I don't know if he's quite worthy of his own dedicated Character, and I doubt I'll get around to a Maggia Character.  Tombstone, there's a guy I could see doing up as a 15 or 16 point Character with 6S.
hazeljoe09 Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2016
Yeah i would love to see tombstone
