Famous Funnies #48
Skyroads shares an unusual crime problem -- gas rustling! It could never happen at an urban gas station, but a rural gas station could have enough room for a plane to land, the aviator steals gas for his plane, and flies away. Something for Heroes to solve?
The middle panel reads like a wandering encounter chart for desert environs -- jack rabbits, horned toads, and gila monsters.
This page of War on Crime brings up something that was suggested in my last game session -- can you wreck things with bullets? Possibly...there is a wrecking things mechanic for non-Superheroes and applying it to guns could just be flavor text (particularly since, as this page shows, shooting off a doorknob is something you'd want to do at point blank range, so you wouldn't be giving your Heroes the benefit of added range). I hesitate to say it could be used for wrecking robots or better, though, as that would be handled better by normal combat rules.
