True, but it's what I had points for & consistent with his Golden Age speeds. Plus if you consider Interpose, he could move 1800 ft in response to a gunshot and jump in front of the bullet. Now that I think of it, that should probably be an Enhanced Advantage under the "Faster Than.." power...
vitruvian wrote:Oh, I'm not saying it's bad for a Golden Age, close to 1938 build. Not at all. I just don't think he was claiming to be faster than a speeding bullet at that point, although his speed was one of the first abilities to get massively inflated as time went on.
I'd also say that going by when they were introduced, the weakness complications are less iconic than the higher speed, flight, and x-ray vision, all of which were attributed to him by the time Kryptonite was introduced... on the radio!

Secret ID: Carter Hall
Honor (Does not preclude feints in combat)
Flashbacks to life as Hor-Oos Kator
Hatred: those who destroy natural habitats (loggers, strip-miners, polluters, etc.)
In Kator's time, Thanagar was a natural paradise and the Thanagarian's technology worked in conjunction with nature, not in opposition. Now that he has Kator's imprinted memories, Carter has developed an intense hatred of polluters, strip-miners, loggers - any who actively destroy habitat. Carter's eyesight has always been excellent due to his previously-unknown Thanagarian heritage. After the imprint, he found he could communicate with all types of avian life. Carter/Kator has a strong sense of personal honor, which also fuels his thirst for justice. Carter will also frequently find himself lost in Kator's memories - especially those of Sha-era, Kator's wife.
EDIT: Slight change to correct math mistake on cost of mace.

No, that's correct. Trade-offs can be done on a per-attack basis - they don't have to be universal. Check out the builds for Batman, Nightwing & Black Manta for examples.
