Cosmic attack question
 
If you look at any of the penetration modifiers, such as Malediction, Armor Piercing, Sense based or the like, they say that they can not be combined.

Is the +300% Cosmic enhancement, Irresistible Attack, a penetration mod incapable of being stacked with say, Armor Piercing? I am split, thinking that it should be, but maybe it gets a break from that rule because it is Cosmic. Thank you.

It specifically says it can't be combined with other penetration mods.

It counts as a penetration modifier. When you think about it, it's just the next level of Armor Divisor.

It superscedes all the other penetration mods. The only thing I can think it makes sense to combine it with is Followup, and you can just use Irresistable on the carrier attack, and followup on the secondary attack.

You are correct. It does say so in Characters. I had looked in power-ups 4 and it was not there. My apologies. Thanks all for the replies.
