Ed's Notes: The S:MoS Sourcebook has him at 55 Hero Points, but otherwise all versions are the same.  Question about his powers... Based on what I've seen in the comics, I feel like all three should have:

Bonuses: Area Effect
Limitaion: Always On

And it seems like he should be able to Drain ALL of a target's powers and attribuites simultaneously, without a mutli-attack penalty.  But would these three changes together make him TOO powerful? Not sure. Just seems like the actual resolution of this in game terms makes him drain/gain power much too slowly.

First Appearance: Firestorm vol 2 #58 (April, 1987)

  1. These republished postings of DC characters are amazing! I have many happy memories of playing Mayfair's DC Heroes RPG in the early 1990s. Thanks again for posting them.
