I have always disliked the way the Scapegoat rules are written. My preference is to wait until AFTER the heroic escape fails to designate a scapegoat. If the best friend is killed but makes an escape, the superhero should never berserk in the first place -- they should be tearing up the battlefield trying to find him.

In fact, another good alternate rule -- if a best friend is killed, and makes a heroic escape, the owning player should be able to choose whether the best friend comes back with the closest unit OR comes back with the superhero, no matter where the superhero is on the board.
