To follow up on my other topic on power amping as lazy character building or writing.
Today I ask, how do some of you feel about certain powers just being kind of cheap or a lazy way to make a character powerful.
A good example is power mimics. I have never understood why they even bother making power mimics, it is like 2 kids on a schoolyard were arguing about whose character was better and one said "Well, my guy just copies whatever you do, so he will always be powerful"
Another is the reverse for those who just go, "Oh yeah, well my guy just becomes immune to whatever you do"
Does this bother anyone else or is it the gamer/writer in me?
