Leader Intellect.jpg

Intellect may be used in either action or reaction dice pools.

The hero has intelligence that is significantly above standard genius level intellect. One is gifted with higher mental faculties such as a more powerful memory, better calculation skills, greater reasoning skills, and a more superior learning capacity. At this stage, an individual can often come up with unique and original ideas that elevates the thinking of humanity to new levels. The Intellect power is used to create assets and complications. To cause mental or emotional stress use powers such as Psychic Blast instead.
