Examining Armor

In Marvel, heroes have defense equal to their Strength so most of them dont wear any extra protection. But a few heroes wear additional unpowered armor, and some (like the THING) have extra-tough hides. In this case, their hero sheets list Body Armor plus-a-number, such as a "+4" defense bonus. Defense can also be improved through nonphysical means, such as distraction.

Shields can be used as armor or weapons.
