Generic comic book version as opposed to movie version (that is why she has flight). Basically a version that could be on the same team with my Superman. Comic book characters are so fluid that I do not want to worry much about te minutea. There are really two lenses I want these characters to pass. 1) Yep, feels like superhero xyz to me and 2) yep, the build make sense mechanically.

WW ST has greatly varying. I ended up at 60 because it felt very WW and damage seemed balanced with Big Blue (as in less damage but still threatening). HT was a thumb suck. HT is tricky because too high makes the character nearly impervious and too low makes then too vulnerable. That band is somewhat narrow. DX and IQ were driven by character concept but also by points efficiency with regards to skills. I started with DX 14 and IQ 12 but skills made me push them upwards. I even reduced some skills because point efficiency was leading towards IQ 14 and I simply could not have that.

For a Super game GURPS has just too many narrow skills, which drive the attributes up. I have reduce my skil list to about 100 to 125 but I believe it is still too much. A better solution would be to have broader skills without necessarily going full Wildcard.

It's your variant described in this thread.

Ok, will look into it.

Are you talking about the Pyramid issue? I will look at it.

There are two ways to get out of the snare. Break free (quick contest of ST) or to break the bind. Within the context of the special effect, damaging the bind does not destroy the lasso (which is unbreakable) but "loosen" the noose and make it easier to escape. I am personally quite happy with that interpretation.

That's the plan... eventually...
