    Hi Mark. With Oedipus Complex are you wrapping up as his fixation with Stark (his daddy issues)?

      Yep! And his general hatred of humanity as his father as well.

        His Oedipus Complex is a bit stronger in the comics as well, as he’s obsessed with The Wasp as his “mother”.

    I’m loving this series of posts, wonderful to see the MCU in MHR form!
    Would it be possible to darken the background of the power set text (while keeping the text whitel) to make the text stand out more? Sometimes (I’m looking at you infinity stones!) it’s quite hard to decipher. No worries if not, I’ll be stoic about it!
    When Ultron uses his Minions power to, for example, bundle upon a lone hero, would he be rolling 2d10 (solo) + d8 (distinction) + 3d8 (minions) + 1d10 (combat master)? And I guess they’re inherently not an AOE attack so to target multiple heroes with the minions will require spending Doom dice? Thanks!

    A question: for the Boost SFX, Ultron’s highest-rated power is his Durability. That seems a bit odd to shut that down for a turn to get to roll a d10 to do something else, and having to activate an Opportunity to get it back …

    I’m just not sure I see why the Judge would want to do that with Ultron.
