The Tick has decent intelligence? Are we talking the same Tick who chose "SPOON!" as his battlecry and Little Wooden Boy as his replacement sidekick?! :shock:

If you ask me, a 5 Wisdom is about right... but Tick is only barely functional in the Intelligence department!
Any leaps of logic that he successfully makes should be considered the result of a spent Hero Point!!

While true, it seems a little unbalanced in that Super-DEX adds to Defense.

Oops, I forgot about the Tick too. But I tend to put any character in that series into a category of it's own. I just don't see the heroes from The City interacting well with mainstream comic heroes.

Personally, I don't have a problem with players in my group 'min-maxing' stats because I've made the characters for them. They told me exactly what they wanted, I made the numbers. (Since this was their first time playing the system, allowing them to make a point based character themselves would have been confusing and unrealistic for them). Before I started running the game I read some of the suggestions I found on these posts about such things. (I think Arcady for one has some great thoughts on his site.) Really helped out. Anyway, this is totally off the subject of this post, which was about what numbers get figured into other numbers, so I'll stop now. :wink:
