Funny Pages v. 2 #11

This is the second appearance of Centaur's first superhero, The Arrow.  Now, I had skimmed a few Arrow stories before, but until last night when I read this one, I would have bet money that The Arrow was actually best statted with the Fighter class. But here he is, wrecking chains, and climbing a sheer wall with a person on his back (this would require the new power, Wall-Climbing, I plan to introduce in 2nd ed.).  Perhaps most impressive, he shoots an arrow through this guy that pins him to a stone wall.  Hold Person?

It's unclear how The Arrow blows up the yacht with the canister of nitro-glycerine. Perhaps he just throws it at the yacht? Of course, many players would rather capture the yacht, and keep both that and the nitro-glycerine. One of the challenges of being the Editor is to always make blowing up, or otherwise destroying, the trophy items seem like a good option.

And that's all I've got to say from that issue!
