The Power Set Shuffle

Post by Batgirl III » Thu Jul 14, 2005 6:58 pm

Mr. Kenson,

Let me begin by saying I love this game! But, I don't yet have all the books I think I need... say, the entire print line. But I've run into a small problem with a character concept. I want a character such as DC's Vixen or Animal Man, who draws upon the powers of animals but without actual shapeshifting.

The Totem from the corebook is perfect, but I need a way to shift from one powerset to another. Ideas?

You basically need the Mimic power, limited to work on animals.

When M&M 2e comes along, check out Animal Mimicry, which is designed just for creating characters like Animal Man and Vixen. 8)
