Re: Limits of Move Object

Move Object is basically Strength minus Damage with the Increased Range extra. Anything you could do with a normal Strength score, other than doing Damage -- for which you need the Damaging extra -- you can pretty much do with it, and without suffering the effects of physical contact with whatever y...

Re: The Shield (Michael Barnes)

Oh weird- I was wondering why his hair was brown at times. Is Roger Higgins a one-off invented for just Impact Comics, then? Pretty much; he's Joe's uncle who was this continuity's original Shield back in the 40s and 50s before disappearing, until he comes back at the end of Joe's series, where Joe...

Re: The Shield (Joe Higgins)

-The Golden Age Shield was Joe Higgins, who witnessed his father, an FBI chemist, killed by criminals. Rubbing his father's formula over six key body parts (Sacrum, Heart, Innervation, Eyes, Lungs, Derma), Innervation, incidentally, is not a body part. It's a term that describes how the nerves in a...

Correct!

Re: Which Area extra should I pick?

Red Ryder wrote: Sat Jul 24, 2021 4:14 pm If Move Object is already a range power, then does that mean a burst area is at range also, or do I have to extend range on that separately?
The former. How Area effect works with the various ranges is explained on the same page that describes the various area types.
