HISTORY-- Roland Morris was a dedicated high school student until he found an ancient African mystic amulet while helping clean his grandmother's attic. He felt mysteriously attracted to it, and took to wearing it around his wrist all the time. One day, he witnessed a car accident on his way to school: a woman was trapped in the hulk of a burning car. Roland tried to help, and when he was burned, he became enraged, ripped the car door open, tossed the woman out, and proceded to smash the vehicle into junk (luckily for him, the gas tank did not explode). As it turned out, Lucia Mendez (see Wraith), went to the same high school, and accidentally eavesdropped into his thoughts about his new powers. Night Master then proceeded to recruit him.

120: A minor nit to pick...

The 25 point supers are indeed eye-opening (for me, anyway), but I think Tithanos's Amulet of Strength should be 23 points (22.8 rounded up) instead of 21 points. Still, a 27 point super that is a very playable and viable character is something to take notice of.
