Hero and Superhero Chess. The King's Pawn is replaced by a Hero (moves like any other piece on your side on the board) or a Superhero (improved Hero). (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

The power of the Superhero suggests a third possible piece, possessing the power to move to any square a friendly piece can move to, but without the ability to move as any friendly piece itself, which I have dubbed the "Volunteer". I suspect this piece is substantially weaker than the Hero (which is usually stronger than the Queen).
