I wanted my character to have active camouflage fatigues; something akin to Snake's OctoCamo in MGS4. I believe that active camouflage qualifies as "a piece of super-science technology," so I made a device for it. After I made the power on the device, Concealment (normal vision) (2 ranks) and applied the Blending [-1] and Partial [-1], the cost came out to be only 1 power point. As the device is worn, it can't just be disarmed, so the cost of the device is 4 power points. You can no doubt see my issue here. I don't, by any means, try to min-max. I prefer to the spirit of the game; in the case of M&M, that's character flavor. But, I'm not really willing to just throw away 3 power points. My GM advised maybe I combine my device with my tactical armor, and apply a Protection 4 power to it. But I'd still be throwing away 2 points, as I can buy that with 1 rank in the Equipment feat. I don't just want to give him Concealment as a power, as it's the fatigues that have the ability.
I'm sure I'm way over-complicating this. I know it would be better just to take the Concealment (all visual senses), the Blending or Partial flaw, and the Close Range power feat to max out the use of my device. But, I don't want that. I want the Partial flaw, because his armor and equipment is worn over the fatigues, and the head is not covered. The fatigues will just make recognition of his limbs difficult, hence the 20% miss chance. The Blending flaw is for the delay in the patterns changing to match the current environment. And I know it reduces my speed to 30 feet if I want to keep it functioning, which isn't even my half movement as I have 1 rank in Speed. So, I want these limitations. I want a character I have to play, instead of a Superman where my Impervious defenses make immune to most non-power attacks and all I say every round is, "I fly up to him and punch him." I want a character that will be challenged by every situation, so my GM doesn't have to make special enemies and situation to just fight me. I call that "Kryptonite Effect." It starts from one small piece of Kryptonite on Lex's ring, to ridiculousness with every street thug having a piece.
Anyway, I got way off topic. How would I resolve this? Would I make it a 1-point power with a device descriptor, would I make it a piece of equipment with a cost of 5 (the equipment cost equivalent of 1 power point), or none of the above?
Oh, and since I'm on the topic of Concealment, would Concealment (normal vision) also cover dark-vision, low-light vision, and perhaps ultra-vision as all three simply allow you to see with normal vision only under different circumstances?
