The Second Edition adds to the timeline of events and adds stats for new characters, some of which were just mentioned in the First edition. In this setting it is possible for characters to make significant changes to the world which is something I appreciate in a game. If you don't have the 1st edition then this a good buy.

However in having the 1st edition I wanted more out of the 2nd edition. I wanted more details on legendary items mentioned in passing, on the various alien races, and the other dimensions mentioned. By this I mean that I want actual game crunch not just some generalized descriptions. Let's see actual beings from the major races besides Mithrans and entities from the dimensions. These should be addressed in a future product.
The additions between 1st and 2nd edition was not really worth $15.00.

Rating: 4 of 5 if you don't have the 1st edition, but only 3 of 5 if you do.

Halt Evil Doer! Second Edition

A very well done book, Charles Phipps has a deep love for the super hero genre, and it is shown by the various homages to pre-existing comic characters and concepts. There are a lot of interesting ideas present here (Such as making the devil of the setting an anthropomorphic rabbit), and a great number groups and ideas that can be mined for existing campaign settings or played straight.

That being said, the product is not perfect; there are more than a few typos in the book, mostly in stat blocks, but that shouldn't detract from the enjoyment of the product (it didn't detract from mine), and also many of the characters don't have artwork (which can be kind of off putting if you'd like a visual medium for a character.)

Flawless? No, but its still a solid product and a great addition to any Mutants and Masterminds setting.
