The DC Heroes 2nd Edition Role Playing Game by Mayfair Games is a full set with many components. This post, however will focus on the deck of character cards.

I’ve seen dozens of these sets over the years, and the cards are often the problem in a used set. Sometimes the cards are incomplete, and this reference is here to help me as much as you.
