OK, you convinced me, I'm buying the ADEL file. (I hope it's not about singing!) Laughing

LOL. I hadn't thought about that name similarity. ADEL was just a working name acronym for the Advantages, Disadvantages, Enhancements, and Limitations that the book was to feature. I just got so used to using it that it kinda' stuck in my mind, so I tried to make it feel like some kind of secret report-type thing.

BTW, I've always been pronouncing it A-DEL (like the Canadian "eh" as in, BOB: "This movie was shot in 3B, three beers and it looks good, eh?" from Strange Brew).

Variable Immunity is a tough nut to crack. As a 2 point cost, it is far too powerful.


What about Omnipotence 5 [only duplicates Immunity] 4 pts

That would give variable immunity but only one at a time.

... Question: would Immunity with the Variable Enhancement (and the Situational Limitation) be valid? I'm thinking in terms of a character like Darwin of the X-Men, who adapts to any type of damage (but only one at a time.)

The dimensional traveler character you describe definitely sounds like a good candidate for some Cosmic scaled powers. If, however, you wished to keep him more in the level of "typical" heroes, you could tweak BASHMAN'S Adaptive Defenses power (as presented in Awesome Powers #2).

If the idea of moving through the partial Resistance phase is not as quick as you envision you hero then give the power the Extra Effect enhancement (defined as Quick Adjustment) to skip the Resistance phase. I'd recommend BASHMAN'S suggestion for a balancing limitation like the "Situational: Only two immunities at once" to keep the character from being overpowering.

Those sounds like great ideas! I'm definitely checking AP #2 (and #3 as well) Thanks!
