Margaret Weis Production created a very useful supplement for the Marvel Heroic Roleplay, a nicely detailed example of play document. I really think it was a good idea, as many players inexperienced with the Cortex Plus system asked for a document like this.

   The document includes a 9-page example of play during an action scene, featuring almost every aspect of the game. A lots of notes on the side-panel help to find the relevant pages in the rulebook to check on the details.

  In the scene a team of X-Men (Wolverine, Emma Frost, Cyclops and Shadowcat) are standing against a group of rogue S.H.I.E.L.D. agents and Black Widow (Yelena Belova) The whole scene is finished in a two turns (however in the second turn only Wolverine acts), and feature some cinematic moments, like Black Widow taking Cyclops visor and Logan intimidating a group of agents.

For those who are interested in the Marvel Heroic Roleplay – Example of Play you may download it here.

I highly recommend it, if you have problems understanding the game system.
