Because we are gluttons for punishment, we let you choose which characters Rachel & Miles would play, and the makeup of the party.
Logan Bonner (Writer, Gamemaster, BS&P) is a game designer, writer, and editor. He works at Paizo, Inc. as a designer on the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, and has previously contributed to Dungeons & Dragons, Marvel Heroic Roleplaying, and the Mistborn Adventure Game. His name does not include, and has never included, the word “Howlett.”
Tina Abate (Wolverine) splits her time between an office job; working administration for Rachel & Miles X-Plain the X-Men; and blogging about the adventures of Jennifer Walters, the world’s greatest lady lawyer, at jenniferwaltersesq.tumblr.com. She lives in Portland and wishes there was a way to monetize atrocious Wolverine impressions.
Mikey Neilson (Storm) is the founder and co-host of the Chronicles of the Nerds podcast. For the past 6 years he’s been yelling his opinion about everything from X-Men to Power Rangers on a weekly basis. Mikey is also the Programming Director of the Rose City Comic Con, which will be having it’s 4th year on September 19th and 20th. When not talking nerd, Mikey can be found in a dark room writing comics no one will ever read.
Rachel Edidin (Cyclops) was really hoping to play Beast, but acknowledges that this is a hole she dug for herself.
Miles Stokes (Rogue) has seriously been talking in that accent all week.

We are playing the Marvel Superheroes Adventure Game, modified by Logan Bonner for the Animated Series. (The full module and character sheets will go up later this week!)
In which we welcome Logan Bonner, Mikey Neilson, and AdministratriX Tina to the gaming table for an original X-Men Animated Adventure; the real enemy is BS&P; Australia is kind of terrible; Rogue is concerned about kangaroos; Wolverine taps into the power of love; Storm makes a long-distance call; and Cyclops plans for failure (but not color-coded labels).
