It sometimes annoying how my mind works, jumping from one thing to another like a frog who mistook hotplates for lilypads. I just need to get through all the tangled weeds that are my game ideas to find that one perfect rose growning in the middle. Nice analogies huh? What can I say, I'm a romantic.
Right now I have three main Supers games in mind.
#1) Alternate Earth DC Adventures
This is the one I mentioned recently that focuses on the aftermath of the crazy stories and piece meal continuity of DC as National Publications. I have some really good characters and ideas but I'm having a little difficulty with the over all theme. That is, how do I get across the twist of this world so that the PC's feel it in the nature and atmosphere of the game. Not sure yet. Still a work in progress.

I created him in case I get to actually play DC Adventures instead of just GM it.
#2) Champions - Solo Campaign / Road to Redemption
A buddy of mine has been bugging me to run Champions for him for the longest time. Unfortunately, as much as I love that game, I don't have the time or patience to run a full campaign for such a crunchy system. Unless...there was only one player.
To that end I figured out a way to run a one on one game with just him as the player and me as GM. I plan on doing it 'The Brave and The Bold' style (comic book more than cartoon). Each 'issue' his character Redeemer will meet up with a different superhero and learn a bit about the campaign universe through them as they team up to stop whatever crime is going on. I'm pretty excited to try this out.

who I played back in high school, and again later on.
I based the illustration on a pic of Marvel's Gladiator,
who StarGuard was similar to in many ways.
#3) Gods in Long Underwear II
Maybe. I'm thinking about running Supers for my Jersey crew instead of Post Apocalypse. I know, I know. But it might be awesome. Or I might be setting myself up for heartache. Well, nothing ventured nothing gained. I just have to figure it out. If I were to run my original FIENDish idea I think it would work, or a universe based on a more Golden Age feel but straight up Supers may not be their thing. Or it might. This is a tough one.
A lot to think about and a lot to discuss.
