I don't like catch-all abilities of that sort, particularly at that rating. Loses any sense of character because whatever's happening she only needs the one ability.

Why can't *you* do them? That took me less than an hour including rereading the sources which are all published. Checking some of the articles on the web could have added more abilities and magic.

I'll agree some of the other heros are more difficult because there's so little published. Is Androgonus a Helering or something else? But that reinforces the point that it's not stats which are needed but sufficent descriptions to know what these people can and want to do.

That'll be the Western Knight Superhero who hasn't even been described yet. :)
