The weirdest part was it talking about using Mechanon in a post-apoc setting. He's won and humanity (including super-heroes) are holding on by a thread. That wasn't weird...going and seeing Terminator: Salvation, where it's pretty much that storyline without Mechanon or Super-heroes was.
I'm not sure what the book will cost, I'm guessing about $40US. If you like him as a bad guy then yes it is worth the price. The major downpoint I saw was that the PDF was color as well, it would have been nice to have a b/w version bundled in to make printing easier. Hero is slowly making a comeback in my eyes. Now if they'd put Luche Libre Hero back in the trashcan where it belongs I'd be happy (well, if they went back to solid four color style gaming I'd be happy).
