horned god wrote:This means he cannot mimic Joe Averge Home-brewed hero who walks up to him, instead it implies you flip open the FC book to the Freedom League characters and Argo can use any Skill, Feat, or Power listed at the rank of the particular character he is mimicking up to rank 12 (thus if Johnny Rocket has +10 super-speed that is what rank Argo's power of Super-Speed is).
horned god wrote:At least that is how I am reading it and thus Argo is not a simple PL 17 character, he is basically a freedom league super-skrull, a being who mimicks the powers of a team. Imagine if Argo instead simply had mimiced the Atom Family's powers and thus since they have rank 10 in their powers basically he'd have only really needed rank 10 mimicry.
horned god wrote:So it could be valid to write up Super-Skrull like Argo and thus give him base stats of 10 in his physical stats and yet functionally he would have any super-stats or base attributes any of the F4 had so it would be like benefiting from it without buying it unless you said he pays for it in the Mimic power cost.
horned god wrote:Super-skrull then would mimick only the F4's power like Argo only mimics the Freedom League. My F4's write up have powers ranging from rank 4 to rank 12 thus I would need to give super-skrull rank 12 mimic at least and would do so and he'd probably end up rank 17 or 18 as I would give him some mental attributes greater than 10 for example. I also think I would not give him the ability to mimic feats and like argo he cannot mimick skills. But he would have mimick and the F4 could be on the other side of the universe and he'd still be able to mimick their powers if he were made 'like argo'.
