Force Field

This is the type of field used by the Invisible Woman. It provides protection against a variety of forces, including brute force, energy attacks, and extreme temperature conditions. It can be projected and used for a variety of Power stunts.

The following 7 force fields protect against specific forms of attack.
Each protects the hero and the surrounding area. The maximum size of the force field is the number of areas equal to 10% of the Power rank number. For example, a Mn Force Field can protect 7.5 areas.

The force field completely absorbs any attack which has an Intensity equal to or less than the Power's rank number. If the Intensity is higher, it is reduced by the Power's rank number. The remaining Intensity breaches the force field and affects anyone within by this diminished effect.

These forms cannot be used for many of the Power stunts suggested for force fields as given in the Player's Book.

These cannot be used to physically attack or to handle solid materials. However, the hero can develop Power stunts which reflect each form's special nature.

The hero can form shields to protect distant targets at +2CS range.

By expanding his field outward, the hero can sweep his surroundings clean of anything affected by his force field.

The Power can be used as a filter to sort out anything affected by his force field.

The force field can be formed around something it would affect, thus trapping it. The hero can move the "trap" at will up to +2CS by means of a red FEAT.
