The first few times we played Rippers it was apparent that the "bad guys" from the GM's section were underpowered. Especially against 6 Seasoned player characters. So I beefed most of them up. Here is my version of a Hyde. Also, to keep players from just taking "injections" and becoming Hydes themselves, I had my versions have implants of glands that would secrete the formula so they could "Hulk out" for combat but sneak around as normal joes.
Also, it doesn't make much sense that the Hydes from the Rippers book have Improved Nerves of Steel if they aren't Wild Cards. So I made all my Hydes Wild Cards.
I rebased the Heroclix version (left) of Mr Hyde on 1.250" washers that I painted flat black. They look pretty good.
