d100 Villain Escapes for Marvel

Going punisher is considered by a few players occasionally when villains escape constantly. Villains in Marvel can spend karma to escape stuff effectively (more so in yellow box than blue advanced ed). Mysterious ambiguous deaths would cost heroes karma so that's another reason to do it for the villain. Heck if decommissioning a old base i could capture a hero, tell them my dated plans already over then leave them in a lame death trap then let them escape/get rescued and destroy the base full of goons with unpaid wages to get extra karma. Win win situation. Could be a possible use for alternatives to killing players too in tpk situations. A villain might change a bit or learn a new skill or get a relic for their next plan. Lots of these things are a problem or adventure for the villain but could lead to lots of things. Might just be something they explain happened to them next you meet. A d100 Mysterious Deaths or d100 or Mysterious Resurrections might be a goer.

Typically a villain does one of these things to avoid capture1 Jump into a open air nuclear furnace or gateway in doomsday device

2 Caught in a explosion, fire or flash flood leaving no remains
3 Swallowed up by the earth during a quake or buried in rubble
4 Jump off cliff into a raging river, volcano or explosion
5 Crash in a vehicle or base explodes
