Hey just thought that Marvels Doc Strange would be a good investigator to play.

I don't have the game yet, do not know the rules and wouldn't know where to start.

Anybody willing to take up the challenge?

Welcome to BGG!

Stephen Strange would seem to be a good fit for an investigator, but he would be "overpowered" in comparison to other investigators who are normal human beings. Stephen's experiences would make him immune to one of the most important aspects of the game--the use of Sanity and losing it upon seeing the horrors of the Mythos.

There have been some uses of Lovecraft/Mythos concepts in the comic series, though.

Shouldn't you be playing a game with me instead of wasting time on the Internet?

True. Maybe lessen the sanity cost for spells by one or something...

I've given it a go. I went for a less powerful younger version of the Doc, recently returned from his training in Tibet with his old master (oddly enough, name the "Ancient One" by Marvel).

No, he would not, as a Marvel character he would have no business whatsoever in the Cthulhu universe. Better than making Batman but still not reccommended. I would advise not mixing fictional universes when there are so many different games available. He would be excellent say in Heroscape.

Creativity should be kept to a minimum. Fan fiction after all detracts from the creators ability to make money. Mixing and matching you favorite universes is a sin.
