Continuing on through a chunk of the B's:
p38 - Bane - Abilities total as written should be 116, not 104. Then again, if DEX 7 was a typo and changed to DEX 1, it would affect nothing else in the build and match the total 104.
- The Venom Power should be 10 total (15 for powers, -2 ACtivation, -3 Removable), although there are issues
about inconsistent rounding for Removable.
- Defense total is 21, not 26. Likely confused by the Venom effect.
- Grand Total is 191, or 179 with the DEX drop.
p41 - Batgirl (Stephanie Brown) is actually PL9 (barely), thanks to her Grab:
FGT 8 + Close Attack 5 + Grabbing Finesse w/DEX 4 = 17/2 = PL 8.5
- Also, her Wireless Relay to Oracle can be described as a Senses (Communication Link) for 1p instead of Comm 3 Limited to Oracle for 6p (which is a ridiculous way to set up a single-target Comm Link when that Senses effect exists), dropping her total Equipment points to 30, her Equipment Advantage cost to 6, and her Total to 135, making her a playable starting PL9.
- Conversely, Batgirl (Cassandra Cain) actually has a Skill total of 32, not 31, making her Total points 151, "breaking" her playable starting PL10.
p43 - Batgirl (Barbara Gordon) - her Toughness save is actually 5/3, pushing her to PL10. Dropping one rank of Defensive Roll as suggested would get her back to PL9.
p44 - Batman - The Batplane as described is 66ep which makes for a total equipment cost of 110ep, an Equipment Advantage at 22 ranks, and the Advantage total of 75. Also, Defense total should be 18 for a grand total of 285.
- Batcave is only 19ep, not 20. (added 8/12/2011)
p46 - Alfred - Totals are fine, but many of his skills are taking bonuses from the wrong abilities. (added 8/24/2011) Also ,the Shotgun mentioned in his Offense section would be 10ep or 2p of Equipment for an Advantage total of 6 and a grand total of 64.
p48 - Batwoman - Base Motorcycle with a Nav System costs 11ep, not 10. This bumps up Equip to 11p, Adv total to 47 and grand total to 208.
p51 - Big Barda - Defense total should be 7 for a grand total of 220. Not sure why defenses are so often short by one point.
p52 - Lady Blackhawk - The Aerie One Jet is identical to the Fighter Jet in the DCAHH except that as written the A1 has a Def of 8, not 6. The written cost of 66 ep is for a basic fighter. The error is either the Def or the A1 total cost. Also, the rockets on both aircraft have partial ranks of Area, allowing the full rank to be targeted and therefore gain an attack bonus. With Lady B's Heavy Weapons +12, this makes the A1 Rockets a PL11.5 attack and the A2 Rockets PL10.5. (Incidentally, this same idea means Batman is PL12.5 in his Batplane.)
p53 - Misfit - Powers total should be 99 (Teleport 83, Healing 6, Concealment 10). I suspect Healing was calculated as a 1/r base and then Flawed. Grand Total is 206.
p54 - Bizarro - Acute Hearing is included with all Kryptonian-powered characters, including Amazo, but Hearing is Acute by default. Not sure if the intent was to make it Analytical or Accurate or something, but unless Bizarro has "Obtuse Hearing" it should not need to be a purchased power as written.
p57 - Black Canary (Dinah Drake Lance) - numbers are okay, but the Totals in the Power Points section are in a
p60 - Black Hand - Power total is 51, not 52, although this may be a rounding issue for Removable powers.
p64 - Black Manta - Diving Suit should cost 22 -4 for removable for a total of 18, not 13. I suspect Enhanced Strength was calculated at 1/r instead of 2/r. Also, the weapons array is 23 -5 for removable. (Good ol' rounding.) And the Manta-Sub is 37ep, so the Advantage total should be 14. Grand total is 151.
p65 - Blackfire - Honestly not quite sure how Language Absorption is statted out to cost 2 points.
p67 - Blackhawk Squadron - the Grumman XF5F-1 “Skyrocket" costs 2p for Huge, 2p for Str 10, 2p for Def 8 and 66p for Flight(14), Weapons (48+1ae) and Radar (3), for a grand total of 72ep. Combined with the Heavy Pistol assigned to all the Blackhawks, that comes to 80ep even or 16 Equipment. However, all of the BH's were also given choice of 2ep of equipment, presumably to make up the extra 2ep leftover when the Skyrocket was thought to be only 70. Since there is no gap, the 2ep extra should either be a) removed or b) bumped up to 5ep for everybody. The former gives everyone Equipment 16 (including Olaf and Wing Chan, who seemed to have a typo of Equip 18), and the latter gives everyone Equip 17. All else is fine, so totals would update accordingly.
