More Fun Comics #17 - pt. 2
Mark Marson of the Inter-Planetary Police is new to me, but there are some familiar tropes here. The "sun-ray cannon" sounds a lot like a Laser, but is probably meant to be a heatray (since Lasers hadn't been invented yet in the 1930s). The electro-ray pistol is also already statted for H&H, as an electric raygun. And pit traps! Gotta have pit traps.
I'm not sure what I'm reading about in Bob Merritt. The snaky tentacles in the clouds -- are they going to have some natural explanation for that or not? And the "bursting hand grenade" in the bottom panel -- I'm no expert on weapons, but I didn't think an exploding grenade normally made that much light. If it was some sort of magnesium grenade that just gave off blinding light, that would be a pretty neat trophy for Heroes to have.
Since the knife is ignored after turn 2, turns 3 and 4 could be compressed into 1 turn, since unarmed combat allows for two actions per turn. They do not both have to be the same action.
