So I'm working on a project where the PCs are superheroes (kind of). They have a base and snazzy uniforms and a Trouble-Alert screen and all that.
But what's the deal with this situation -- do they just hang out at the base until someone calls with an emergency? Maybe they go out on patrol sometimes and spot trouble as it happens. Either way, it seems like they're reactive. The bad guys are the ones who initiate the action.
I know some of you have played lots and lots of Supers games (I'm looking at you, Storn). Is this reactive mode of play the norm? Are there other ways to set up a classic superhero team situation that lets the team be more proactive?
Of course, I have my own ideas about how to address this, but I'm very keen to hear from people with actual play experience in Justice League style games.
