Glitch, Dubstep Superhero

To get back in the hang of statting things out for Mutants and Masterminds, I thought I'd take a stab at a character that's been dropping the bass in my head.The idea for the character is basically a combination of two things a lot of people hate (that I enjoy). The character's code name is Glitch and he's basically a dubstep version of DC's Vibe. Glitch is successful electronic/dubstep musician who's sonic powers emerged when he was attacked by  during a concert.

Collateral Damage: Glitch's control over his powers aren't the greatest and he tends to cause quite a bit of structural damage during his battles.

  1. I don't know what all the numbers mean, but I like the collateral damage side effect. You could have fun with that and irritate people in any rpg setting. Sometimes it's fun to irritate the person next to you. lol

  2. Like the idea. Much fun could be had with that collateral damage complication indeed.
