Factor in the Lilith-brand body wash...and the Norca are going to be incredibly busy rebuilding biological templates!

Actually Only a Quantakinetic can do that. (although there are a few that are in Hiding with the Norca)

Really? I thought the biokinetics specialized in editing biological templates. Maybe the editing pertains to their own templates only, and they can only really erase others'...

Yup, they can change only themselves, or damage someone else's. It is easier to destroy than create.

Huh...wonder if the "damage someone else" could be used in healing...namely, cancer therapy. Accurate detection and destruction of cancer tissue.

"You're gonna be sick for a while while your body clears out the tumor sludge."
"Wait...you got the tumor?"
"Yep."
"What about the metastases?"
"Got them too. You're going to be really itchy for a while."

I recall this game. We tried a few sessions, but it just didn't "click" for people. It has a very specific character for a superhero RPG, and not everyone likes it all that much.

Yeah there was some presentation problems, that and it more Scfi than Superhero, for Superhero you should have gone with Aberrant which was geared more that way.
