If a more normal human being is around 50 to 75 points, and 150 is better than usual, would you really want to be an IQ 20 "Mythic" endowed character?

Would you want to spend time around someone who is so much smarter than you, and knows so much more that even something like Psychology is something they're expert at without really having any of the training that a psychologist undergoes. Think about it - 20-6 = 14. 14 is deemed (per 3e) well trained or Expert (per 4e). Skills at 20+ is deemed Mastery.

so, if anyone wants to answer THIS particular question, you're invited to start a thread "Why I want to play a 1,500 point character". Otherwise, it seems like even discussing a 1,500 point character touches into a realm that few GM's would permit, let alone want in their campaigns.
Uh...supers?
Weve had fast advancing DF games get to this level as well. Its ridiculous and over-the-top, and it needs a few house rules to work, but it can be fun to have godlike power where you can take on whole armies, scores of dragons, etc.

My last 2 cross-dimensional fantasy characters were close to 1000 points, and would eventually have reached 1500. But they were very different campaigns to a plain vanilla dungeon bash.

Me, I'd like to play a 1500 pt character in the right setting: a plane hopping mage/gadgeteer, in particular.
