Cassie seems to be romantically attracted to villains.Identity:
Cassie’s Size Alteration power may be triggered by her emotions; anger causes Growth and guilt causes Shrinking.Real Name:
Cassandra LangDesign Notes:
If you assume Growth and Shrinking to work as written, Growth is underpriced and Shrinking is overpriced. My opinion is that Growth should either cost 3 points per rank or have an attack penalty commensurate with its defense penalty, and Shrinking should have the same attack bonus as it does defense. The other issue with Growth is that it does make Stature’s Fortitude resistance at normal size and reduced size very, very low. I’ve added in some trait adjustments to Cassie’s Size Alteration power to make her Growth and Shrinking work more to my liking. For a more complete discussion of how I’d like Growth/Shrinking to work, you can take a look at my house rules, linked at the top of my thread.Update 6/14/2011:
What started out as a tweak to Stature ended up being an overhaul of how I worked her Size Alteration power. Anyone who knows me is probably aware of my pet peeve with how Growth and Shrinking (and to a similar extent, Density) function in M&M.
