I am actually creating SuperHack, by the way.

SuperHack wouldn't work. Heroes never actually kill anything, just knock the shit out of them.

Sorceror: Most of the monsters are robots or demons or other things that the Comics Code might consider "OK" to kill. As for unique monsters, they never leave corpses and have their death message changed to "You knock out foo! The Keystone Kops arrive to arrest foo." (Doctor Rodney von Destruction - the equivalent of the Wizard of Yendor - "escapes from prison".)

Even in normal nethack, Rodney's reaction to being killed conforms very well to the superhero universe.

Another reason why it wouldn't work:
You hit Rodney's Lackey! Rodney's Lackey causes 200.000 zorkmids collateral damage as he crashes into the wall!

On the other hand:
Congratulations, Dudley, you've saved the city! --more--
You hear Rodney von Destruction shout "I'll get you next time, Dudley!" --more--
The mayor gives you a golden medallion and says "Same time next week?"

SuperHack would sound like a great idea. Just wonder if a newt could be one of the main villians (if the player name is Dudley).

SpiderDud, Batley, Irondog, The Incredible Rodney.

Sounds like it'd be neat if you could have a variety of superpowered classes.

Have anyone else helping you on the project?

#7: Nope, no-one helping me as of yet. So far I'm working on changing items.

Don't forget the ladies: WonderValk, ElsaQueen (a SLASH'EM Ice Mage), & Roguely!
