The inherant difficulty in building this type of character with the system is exactly why I was hoping the Meta power profile would give some pointers on how to build one. Power amplification is an iconic power set that's rather hard to make workable in M&M, and I would really like to see Green Ronin tackle how to make a workable buffer.
Maybe that's why they added the "Ambient" modifier? You throw on a limitation for your power booster that states that it can only boost something so far, regardless of how many ranks he has.
