Responsibility (Attilan, The Royal Family)
Relationship (Medusa & Ahura)
Responsibility (Cannot Speak to Anyone)- Black Bolt is not technically Mute (really, he's quite the opposite), but he can't say anything without killing people. Why he doesn't just carry some Sticky Notes and a pen is beyond me, but whatever.
Weakness (Pollutants & Toxins)- Inhumans cannot survive for long in Earth's atmosphere without regular applications of a Serum.
Responsibility (Full Power)- Black Bolt can only ever use his Sonic Voice at high power, meaning that he endangers everyone around him just by speaking. He can SORTA modulate it, but not by much.
Power Loss (Able to Speak)- Black Bolt must be able to speak to use his powers.Total:
Abilities: 100 / Skills: 36--18 / Advantages: 19 / Powers: 168 / Defenses: 15 (330)
-Black Bolt is The Inhumans' King, and fits the role, being a classic case of Stan Lee's 1960s storytelling: An ultimately tragic hero. He's a great, noble and wise king, but is struggling with first & foremost the fact that he can't speak to anyone, ever, without the power of his voice vaporizing them, and then the fact that his brother is insane and is constantly striving to murder him and take charge. Black Bolt's been all over the Marvel Universe with his charges, but has virtually no instances of bad jobbing to his name: He's bad-ass, and everyone knows it. In his very first appearance, he fights The Thing to a stand-still, and nearly KOs him with his Master Blow. His Voice is considered one of the absolute most powerful weapons in all existence, surpassing even some of Galactus' Heralds for sheer power. Even to this day, everyone goes all "Oh Sh*t" when Black Bolt shows up, like in World War Hulk, where his loss (actually a Skrull's) to the Jade Giant is the first salvo of the battle.
-Black Bolt is one of the tougher people to stat up properly, as he's powerful in his BASE form, but also packs a ludicrously-powerful damaging Sonic Voice, and has a ton of Alt-Effects to boot, including one-off powers and random stuff that you almost never see in stories featuring him. The Sonic Voice is basically a really long-range Cone or Burst-Area Damage (with enough Range to take out one-thousand feet around him- he has blown up CITIES using this power, so you could push it even further with Extra Effort, Plot Devices and the like) that has the Full Power & Power Loss Complications on it- he really can't help but Burst out in all directions (or the Cone) if he yells, making it a nigh-impossible team tactic, or anything he can use safely around innocents or buildings he doesn't want to tear apart.
-There's also his weird set of Alt-Effects. I chose to stat them up as Feats bestowed by his Tuning Fork costume that only he can really use- otherwise it's like a 34-point Device costing 28 pp, which is way too much for something he usually does OTHER THAN his major power. He can Nullify Electronics, Blast normally (a standard +13 Blast this time), create Force Constructs, or use his popular "Master Blow", a Tiring punch that's shaken Ben Grimm, among others. Aside from that, he's a mini-Flying Brick, capable of Flight & Super-Strength, and quite the World Leader as well.
-Used normally and effectively, he's PL 11.5 in melee and PL 12.5 at range- essentially making him just above the equal of The Thing or Colossus at hand-to-hand (which fits his showings). With his Master Blow (which should be used sparingly, with that glaring weakness), he's PL 12.5, and his Voice makes him PL 18 overall. But of course that can almost never be used in concert with any of his allies, lest he blow them apart. You could go to almost any Rank with that, honestly, but +18 is more than enough to do a TON of Damage with that kind of range- he hits almost as hard as Thor's Hammer.
-Note the unique Feature for Extra Area Damage- I stole it from one of those new "Ultimate Power" sources for Fire Powers. You can use Extra Effort to get TWO extra levels of Area.
