Animate [Shadow]

"You can animate shadows, turning them into physical beings. They have a Strength bonus and Damage bonus equal to your power rank."

Egads! So my PL 10 shadow dude can animate a shadow with a half action that hits with a modified attack bonus of +10 and has a damage bonus of +20? OMfG! Zoinks!

What am I missing here?

I think it's just a case of clumsy wording, to show that the shadows have a Str bonus of your ranks in Animate Shadow, which is the same as their damage bonus.

So your PL 10 character's shadows have a +10 damage bonus.

I read that as a typo. It should be +10 strength bonus and +10 damage save, putting it in line with other animated things.

No one official as answered this yet, that I know of. You might want to ask Steve.
