Some quotes from Ben Franklin:

Binding + Affliction (Shrinking)
A man wrapped up in himself makes a very small bundle.

Toxic Attack (20d, Side Effect: Debt)
In this world nothing is certain but death and taxes.

Affliction (Bad Smell, Always On, Area Effect, Emanation, Onset)
Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days.

I was going to answer Pee Kitty's post, but the quote showed me the answers. And mine were wrong! :sad:

My contribution ...

Crushing Attack 1 (Cone, 4 yards, +90%; Cosmic, Ignores DR, +300%; Surge, +20%; Increased Range x5, +20%; Only on Unliving, -20%; Always On, -20%; Only when Unmasked, -10%; No Knockback, -10%; No Blunt Trauma, -20%; Nuisance Effect / Curdles Milk -5%) [23]

"A face that would stop a clock" (also "a face that would break a mirror" and "a face that would curdle milk")

The unmasked face will break any small fragile object, including mirrors. Clocks (and other small devices) would be broken and subject to shorting out. Milk would curdle.

No books available at this time, sorry.

An area-effect blunt attack, damages only the buttocks of the victim(s). User must break the seal of some sort of factory-sealed container.
"I'm gonna open up a can of whup-ass on ya now."

A power that grants any communications device interstellar range and compatibility with any other communication system (regardless of TL). The benefits of the augmented device may only be used by aliens.
"E.T. phone home."

Literal interpretations of "Got your nose!", "Your ass is mine!", "He sneezed his head off!", or "Step on a crack and break your mother's back."

A blunt melee attack that inflicts exactly half of the victim's remaining HP. It can never kill. The effects of ever-halved fractions of 1 HP are left to the GM's discretion.
"I'm gonna beat you half to death."

A power that removes "evil" disads(such as Sadism) and replaces them with disads that are associated with benevolence(such as Honesty).
Limitation: Must successfully attack the subject with a whip.
"Whip it good."

Problem is that Franklin didn't say that. Correct is:

Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, there it enters the roots of the vines, to be changed into wine, a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy. -- Benjamin Franklin (1779)
