Disadvantages: Code of Honor (Pirate's) [-5]; Enemy (Law Enforcement; Medium-Sized Group) (12) [-40]; Fragile (Explosive) [-15]; Overconfidence (9) [-7].

Design Notes:
1. Nitro's Alternate Form is meant to be triggered by both his Self-Explosion attack and his Fragile (Explosive) disadvantage. If there is a better way to explain this aspect of his powers, I'm open to suggestions.
Feels like he needs Unkillable 2 (No Unkillable 1 -50%) [50] to cover for the Fragile (Explosive) not killing him in the transition to his alternate form. And to give him time for the Regeneration to kick in. Unkillable 2 being used here because he can be trapped and prevented from recovering himself.

Fragile (Explosive) reduces you to -10xHP, so he would be dead dead if that triggers, but the intent is he just switches forms... which he shouldnt be able to do while dead. Also, Body Of Air might be a bit more expensive because it needs a "No Fragile (Explosive) +15" advantage? Otherwise someone who can damage his diffuse/insubstantial self can cause him to explode again.
