DC Heroes is an out-of-print superhero role-playing game set in the DC Universe, published by Mayfair Games. Other than sharing the same licensed setting, DC Heroes is unrelated to the West End Games DC Universe or to the more recent Green Ronin Publishing DC Adventures game.
Mayfair Games published the first edition in 1985. During the same time-frame, DC released its twelve-part “maxi-series” Crisis on Infinite Earths, which dramatically reshaped the DC universe. As a result of this timing, both Silver Age and pre-Crisis writeups were included alongside new, post-Crisis versions of the characters.
A simplified version of DC Heroes, called The Batman Role-Playing Game was released in 1989 to coincide with the Batman film.
