Owen that is a great idea to start with making the pre-heroic character. 
Things I Learned From Champions: A 500 pt. Character is different from a 250 pt. + 250 XP character. Labels: Game: champions, System: hero. I think that most point-build veterans know what I'm talking about here; they've had first hand experience. But first, a little background.

I have both. There is also an adventure for Classified which I hope to use. There's not a whole lot of reason to buy Classified, though, as inexpensive copies of JB 007 are easy to locate. Still a great game.

Whoever thinks Wayne Manor is only $444,0000 must live in the middle of nowhere. I live in a rather ordinary house in a not very great neighborhood and my house was $300,000.

In 1946 a new superhero called Atoman appeared. His powers were nuclear-based and he wore yellow and red. Was this the inspiration for Firestorm?

I don't really care about Gary Gygax's opinion on whether my campaign is meaningful. Everything I have read about his own game sounds like a game I would not have enjoyed much. 
This is one of those great moments when Uncle Gary speaks directly to us, the Dear Readers. It is also one of the places where EGG breaks out the dread ALL CAPS. Two more good examples of the latter can be found on page 39, where we find the rule that PC magic-users gain “1 (and ONLY 1) spell” ...

Keeping track of END, REC, two types of STUN/Stun, plus BODY and Knockback during combat every friggin' phase is one of my big downsides when I consider using Hero System.

Two types of STUN? What's that?

As a lover of Man from UNCLE I must say that trailer is awful and looks like it was made by someone who has never seen the original or doesn't like it. 
As a solid series of super-heroic films come pouring out of the DC & Marvel universes, a lesser noticed trend has been emerging: spy films. True, there's never been a lull, really -- what with the continuous Bonds and the (relative) newcomers like Jason Bourne. However, I'm talking about the ...

Never heard of it.

Looks like an Abercrombie & Fitch model, not a spy.
So its not over after all! The excellent BBC spy series [spooks] (known as MI-5 on A&E in the US) continues with a film called Spooks: The Greater Good. "Harry not only survived to the final episode, broadcast in 2011, but...

Or – “Where it all began…” This week Major Spoilers celebrates its first birthday! Woohoo! While Major Spoilers may be one year old this week, my love of comics began way back 1981. We were on a family vacation – you know the kind of vacation where you pack everyone into a camper and travel …

That whole Clan thing ruined BattleTech the same way the Third Imperium ruined Traveller. Awful. 
So last night my old BattleTech boxed set caught my eye and I pulled out the rule book and flipped through it. You won't find a lot of posts here on the ol' Gameblog about BTech, but it is probably my number 2 tabletop game in terms of sheer hours of play logged. My junior high/high school ...
