Feeling a little nuts as the creative juices begin to flow again...

With the Merge in mind, I took the Dick Grayson build from the DCA Heroes and Villains and retooled him with very little effort to Merge house rules... then... I took the Thorpacalypse Ghost Rider, tweaked that for the Merge House Rules and mashed the two together to come up with a version of Ghost Rider whose alt ego is Richard Grayson....

Power Points
Abilities 30 + Powers 61 + Advantages 2 + Skills 12 + Defenses 15 = Total 120
Complications
:arrow: Vulnerable: Ice takes an extra degree of failure against fire/heat based effects (but not environmental effects)
:arrow: Power Loss: Extreme heat or massive dehyhdration can sometimes prevent him from being able to use his powers, especially his snow and ice forms
:arrow: Enemy: Although its early days in the campaign, Robert's uncle has plans for the young mutant and would love nothing more to coerce him into working for him and using his powers on the other side of the law.
:arrow: Motivation: Acceptance: Robert can pass for a normal, relatively good looking young man. Be that as it may, he's at Xavier's mostly because his parents are afraid of him and don't want to remain close to him. (The truth is they still love their son, but are afraid of his power.)

Design Notes
:arrow: Although quite powerful, to have access to his Protection, he needs to be in Ice Form, per the comics. I also included the Snow Form as I like the possibilities that it implies.
:arrow: Classic heat weakness, but I can't see your average heat wave having any real effect on him.
:arrow: I have precise on most of his ice and cold powers - that's mostly because while I like the concept of the Features listed in the Cold Profiles supplement, they seem more small parts of his existing powers - making a drink cold, making ice cubes, make snowballs or snowcones, give people chills when he walks in a room, making hot food cool or cold...
:arrow: I like to put potential power stunts every now and again for things that I ran out of points on, and for things to reach for eventually with PP.
:arrow: I'm leaning towards the confident yet laid back version of this character - not wanting to be a leader but can if he has to. There's enough angst to go around any X-men series, so I will probably leave that to the side and as for sexual orientation I'm not really into caring much about that aspect of the character. If something happens in game to make it relevant, I'll decide then. As for right now, I could see him having quite the rivalry with Thermic.
:idea: Making some suggested changes - one, the background. This is what happens when you get an idea stuck in your head and you came in on page nine... redoing background to make the character original... (sorry !)
:idea: Changed the create to be continuous and reversible. Drops the ranks, but I think I will compensate a little with it being proportional. The stronger the ice, the less thick as it relies more on stress points than sheer density...
:idea: A;so fixed an oops - miss calculated, and Cryokinesis can't be first power in the array.... Took two points (four ranks) from skills to balance

Background
Yes. My name is Winters and I can generate ice. Ironic ain't it?

Kevin Winters was born in Montreal, Canada to Michel Lariviere and Janet Winters. He took (or was given) his mother's maiden name when his parents split. Janet moved with Kevin to the states to start a new life with the blessing of his father (the split was amicable) and all seemed like it would be OK.

Kevin Winters was 15 when his powers manifested. Trapped in a burning building - a friend's apartment, the event was actually completely unrelated to the group he was with - Kevin's powers were what kept the group from burning and to an extent from asphyxiating. Although the friends initially wanted to keep things under wraps, the lack of fire damage and their safety made that impossible. Shunned and feared by people who didn't understand him (including his father at this point - which was a huge blow because of how supportive he'd been up til now) Kevin was ready to run way, but before he could do that, Charles Xavier showed up at his door with an offer for him and his mother.

The real reason baseline humans hate and fear mutants is their sick abs.

With real life kicking me around, I've also noticed that my posting rate around here is directly tied to the builds that I'm posting.
The more I build, the more I post to games.

As a result, I've got a bunch of builds that I want to finish and post.

That said, one of my favorite artists over on Deviant Art has some rather original Amalgam ideas, (at least) one of which I plan to have a go at statting:

FrischDVH wrote: Mar’nna = Marinna + Martian Manhunter (Atlantis)

From the depths of the ocean comes Mar’nna. She is a member of an alien race (The Martian born Atlat’Eons) that landed on Earth thousands of years ago. At first, they got along with the human race until people decried them as demons. They submerged their city and are often the fodder for such legends as the lost city of Atlantis. Due to recent volatile activity in the ocean’s ecosphere, Mar’nna was sent as an ambassador to the land world. She has been here for years serving as an envoy and peacekeeper. Mar’nna has several special abilities such as: superhuman strength, aquatic polymorph, under water adaptation, and water control. With her polymorphic abilities, she can assume a regular human shape, but when she is in the water she prefers the tail of a mermaid.

Power Points
Abilities 28 + Powers 70 + Advantages 5 + Skills 8 + Defenses 12 = Total 123

Complications
:arrow: Freshly Minted: Although showing strong Autobot tendencies, he was sparked during a battle with the Autobots and Decepticons over the Allspark. He is often taken for an Autobot but has no real idea of the scope of the conflict. He is watching all the lore though...
:arrow: 12 Foot Robot: In humanoid form, he`s twelve feet tall. And made of metal. People tend to react to that...
:arrow: Vulnerable - Magnetics - The DC of any save versus a magnetic attack is increased by 5

Design Notes
:arrow: A retool of my build for The Merge: Agents and Powers
:arrow: I will probably take the Riot Shield out of the Movement Array eventually (needs 7 pp to do it) but I sort of like the ground speed, various movement abilities and the shield wrapped into one package. It's reflective of making choices in terms of speed vs balance vs staying power.
:arrow: Resourceful is a Benefit, AFAIK, that is of my own creation/ adaptation... its essentially the Inventor Advantage using different skills...
:arrow: Growth 4 is a little larger/ heavier than the original build, I did not put in Innate as I am still of the opinion that the descriptor makes it such. In any event, only three ranks are Permanent. This represents the extra mass of Riot Gear/ Riot Shield and slightly larger/ bulkier motorcycles. I won't have his robot form be shorter or taller than 12 feet.
:arrow: Flavor on the Riot Shield is that it's the windshield of Police Bike. It has an Activation flaw for flavor, and is the only power in that Array that requires an action to switch to. It represents deploying the shield. Technically, it means I can have an extra point of either Parry or Protection, but did not put them.
:arrow: I put in movement abilities, that he would have to sacrifice Speed to use, that allow him to become a Sea-Doo or a Ski-Doo, just because.
:arrow: I did not repost my images from the original Torque build because they really don't fit anymore.
:arrow: Jan 2/2018 - Added our three XP. Had forgotten the Holographic Rider in my upgrade and put a low level Control Technology - allowing him to control a video camera, cell phone or the like to be able to join the group in situations that his frame might normally allow.
