Ed's Notes: This is a very sympathetic character as far as villains go. Yes, I said, "villains," even though he has a heroic motivation. Basically, he was blackmailed and turned into a monster by the Ultra-Humanite in exchange for curing his daughters radiation sickness. At the same time he was on the run from the government for refusing to turn over his discovery of the Atomic Bomb - in 1939 - due to the moral implications of inventing and using such a weapon. So think Mr. Freeze in the Batman Animated Series episode "Heart of Ice," crossed with Tony Stark from the first two Iron Man Movies. VERY complex and sympathetic character indeed. I can't wait to run him!
BTW... I was going to suggest that his Miscellaneous "Bonus," which, even in this interpretation, is really a Miscellaneous Advantage, should have been written up as the Bomb Power with Full AP Usage, Killing Combat and Self-Infliction Limitations, but that ended up looking no less complicated, so instead I'll just include the information about the Atomic Bomb, per the 3rd Edition Rulebook, page 123. (Body and R# don't apply here, obviously):
ATOMIC BOMB [Body: 6, Bomb: 20, Flash: 12, Magnetic Control: 15, R#: 5] Limitation: Magnetic Control only generates an EMP. Use as AV/EV against all electronic equipment within normal range, with OV/RV's based on trhe amount of shielding the equipment has. Most home equipment would have OV/RV's of 2/2, while Government files might have OV/RV's of 12/12. RAP's are deducted from the equipment Mental Attributes and Recall Power, if any.
