Two notable errors:

Megastar's "Combat" stat-line is that of Bolt, duplicated by mistake. From Freedom City, I know this is supposed to be:
Combat: Attack +10 (melee), +8 (ranged), Grapple +26, Damage +10 (unarmed, Blast), Defense +9, Knockback –10, Initiative +1

The other error: the Guide states in more than one place that when already suffering a Staggered condition, a Bruised result on a Toughness Save will make the character Unconscious:

Bruised: Mark a check or slash under the Bruised section of the damage track on character’s sheet. Each bruised mark subtracts 1 from the character’s further Toughness saving throws. A target that’s already staggered getting this result is knocked out; see Unconscious, following.

Staggered: The character is staggered: check off the Staggered box on the damage track on the character’s sheet. Any further damage—that is, any Toughness save less than the required DC, means the character is unconscious


The Beginner's Guide is wrong. Both the M&M errata (1st/2nd printing) and a response from Steve Kenson (M&M's designer) confirm that only another Staggered result will lead to Unconsciousness.

Another Megastar error: The description of his Immunity 9 (life support) says that Megastar does not need to eat. This is not part of the life support package, and it doesn't appear in his FC stat block either.

Firepower has a small error. He's listed as having a +2 bonus to INT, but his two INT skills Knowledge (Pop culture) and Knowledge (Current events) only reflect it as a +1. In reality he should have +4 bonuses on both, as opposed to +3.

Also, if he is meant to be a PC, he is 2 pp over (not counting the fact that this was written up before Aura required the damage effect to be sustained) Perhaps the designers forgot to lower the INT, and they meant to change it to a +1 bonus
