Definite praise for the excellent layout of the PDFs listed in the very first post, well-done Bill. I haven't yet looked at the builds themselves, but immediately felt the need to acknowledge such positive effort.

Thank you very much!

Black Panther has now been added. I couldn't decide on capping him at PL 11 or 12, so I did a build for each. In addition, I'll be going back to update older builds, starting with the DC Trinity. An overview of the changes:

- Superman: Dropped ranks in Awareness and Presence to make points for Power-Lifting and Advantages.
- Wonder Woman: Dropped ranks in Flight, shifted Defenses into the Amazonian Shield, and gave the Bracelets ranks in Deflect.
- Batman: Dropped ranks in Presence to make points for Intimidation, Investigation, and Stealth. Updated the Thermite so it more closely matches the plastic explosive listed in the handbook.

More updates and builds to come!

Black Panther is so weird, because if you read the Don McGregor stuff (the "Iconic", post-'60s Panther), he's a PL 9 if he's LUCKY. But ever since the 1990s, he's been upgraded and upgraded until he's absolutely on the "Cap" tier.

Not that I DISAGREE, mind you- why WOULDN'T the top guy of the world's most high-tech nation be PL 11-12? But it's kind of a weird disconnect from the "Gritty comics where two guys with guns and tear gas are a deadly threat" to modern-day "he can whup a high-end agent of Thanos".

I liked it better when this next guy was called Captain Marvel, but... Shazam has been added.

Considered capping him at PL 12, since with PL 14 and the points available he starts edging out Superman which I didn't like. But I figured someone might get some use out of it, so PL 10, 12, and 14 are included.

Actually, his powers look more like Captain Marvel (except for the Lightning Blast) even if you used the craptacular "Za -Sham" visual design.

Shazam is an old, dead, Canaanite who looks like Christopher Lee's version of Saruman.
Somewhere, across the multiverse, there is a parallel world where the only discernible difference is that Billy Idol and Tiffany flip-flopped as to which Tommy James and the Shondells songs to cover.
