Ed's Notes: Two things... (1) I need an entry for generic animals. Can't believe I didn't do one yet. I could have sworn I did! And (2) I'm confused about that "Bonus," and how the Power is supposed to be defined. Because Aquaman's comes with the LIMITATION "only works on sea life." And if that was meant to apply only to his other Animal Powers, why isn't "applies to ALL sea-life," listed as a Bonus? What's more, Batman's Bat-Call Gadget has this power, again with the LIMITATION that it only works on bats. But... Is that really a Limitation? Seems like that's just how the power is DEFINED here. And I checked 2nd Edition, and it's the same. That first paragraph is word for word the entire description of the Power.
