    That's one of the problems with random generation since out of the movement powers, the only good ones are Speed (assuming there is no gridlock or sudden lane changes), flight, andTeliport (if failure didn't stun you at most levels). Sadly, most of the other movement powers aren't that great since the distance they cover per action aren't really decent until you pass rank 7. Then there's wall-crawlling which technically doesn't need any levels past 1.

    I must have missed something. Flight is in all ways better than wall-climbing, period. Superpowers, by design, are not 'balanced' against one another. They are what they are, and do what they do. Lists are often all-inclusive in order to be all-inclusive; the GM decides whether each option is available or not. (I wanna play Spider-Man! What? No wall-climbing power? Why not?!)

    Yeah, but the inequality becomes that much more appearant when you only have like 5 powers max in ICONS. At least with M&M, having an "weak" power like wall crawling doesn't make as much of a dent in your build (depending on PL) since it costs 2pp.

    *G* I remember a character I had in an old Marvel game that had Flight as a power... and he was good at Guns. And had a really weak Darkness power. And he was rich.

    And yeah, he was grossly inefficient in a fight. But he made a great patron.

    Works for me. I can easily model the Goldsmith as a series of Alternate Forms with the Removable flaw, so it's all good.

    It's interesting how not arac-knight becomes a speedster when you don't add in his affliction powers.

    The other character is a speedster...
