Default Re: Can I put an Alternative Ability into a Modular Slot?

Sure, I'd let that work. Here's why. Let's say you spend 100 points on a 5 point cosmic modular pool that works for mental and physical. That will let you make an alternate ability for any power you have that costs 25 points or less. On the other hand, you could have bought 20 AAs for 25 point abilities. A pretty fair trade. If the modular ability is limited to be cheaper, that's still fine, as it would be less accessible than an AA. The only stipulation I would add in is that if you're using your pool for an AA, and either the original ability or the modular one are crippled or negated, you lose access to the modular ability for as long as you lose access to the base ability.
