I agree with this. There are more useful "attacks" to be used against battlesuit/gadget supers. A player has to go out of their way to hobble an exoport ability into an offense-only ability.

Anthony's +100% Incapacitating condition seems about right to me. Even if it's a +300% (the same as Heart Attack), it'll be cheaper than an Exoport ability. Heck, a Paralysis or Unconsciousness Incapacitation Ability with some extended duration, would give you plenty of time to capture and strip a battlesuit/gadget super.

Naked just doesn't do a whole lot on inanimate objects. It is still inconvenient, just less so. It's more of an issue for the player to deal with.

I would accept something like "Can decide Warp has Naked" as an enhancement so you get the best of both worlds.

Being naked in an inappropriate context for either gender makes you look crazy, and being a crazy-looking supervillain is going to escalate the situation.
Honestly, I don't think you get enough points back for the Naked limitation if you are using it with Affliction. There are so many issues with porting others naked.
