Hero Points are an essential fuel that lets players avoid being subdued by villains, gain advantages to overcome challenges, and use their most powerful abilities. Activating more powerful abilities requires Hero Points and using them can turn misses into hits and hits into knockouts! Every hero goes into battle with 1 Hero Point but others can be gained through Leadership, taking down Villains, and having a strong relationship with your Anchor. Hero Points cannot be regained if a character's Anchor is in danger. Hero Points can also be used to add details, like adding Gargoyles to a building to give a falling character something to grab onto or adding a fire hydrant so that an ice-powered character has more to freeze. Hero Points let heroes be more unique and powerful. Hero Points are also gained and lost by succeeding at or failing Challenges.
