Default Micro Singularity

Ok I had an idea about a superhero that could create a micro-singularity, like those cool grenades the elves were throwing in Thor: Dark World.

I was thinking it would be an area affect cosmic crushing power. Am I on the right track with this?

What kind of Cosmic? You mean ignores armor?

It could just be a standard crushing explosion unless you want it to do something special in game terms.

A micro-singularity would put off a tremendous amount of heat and radiation as it decayed.

I'd probably go with:
Crushing attack xd, Cosmic Ignores armour
Follow up - Burning attack xd (explosive), Cosmic Ignores armour (ground 0 only)
Follow up - Toxic attack (radiation, explosive) xxd, cosmic ignores armour (ground 0 only)

Crushing attack represents the sheer forces of the micro-singularity before it decays.
Burning attack for the release of energy from the decay in the form of hot plasma
Toxic attack (radiation) for the massive dose of radiation from the decay.

IE if the attack causes 10d of damage 100d rads of radiation.

I'm not sure how much 'cosmic ignores armour at ground 0' is worth.

What effect do you want this to have?
