Doom tries to hit Spider-Man with the beams, who attempts to get closer to the control panel as he dodges.
Doom: Solo D10 + Energy Beams D8 + Weapon D8 + Tech Master D10 + Peter’s Stress D8 = 3D8+2D10 (4, 1, 7, 6, 3) = 13 and D10 effect.
Spider-Man: Solo D8 + Energy Beams D4 + Reflexes D10 + Acrobatics D8 + Doom’s Stress D8 = D4+3D8+D10 (4, 8, 2, 4, 6) = 14 and D8 effect.
Peter gains 1 PP (2 total) for using the D4 distinction.
When Spider-Man closes with the console, Doom slugs him! Not very dignified, but that’s Victor Von Doom when the chips are down for ya.
Doom: Solo D10 + Colossal Arrogance D8 + Strength D10 + Peter’s Stress D8 = 2D8+2D10 (5, 8, 8, 9) = 17 and D10 stress.
Spider-Man: Solo D8 + Hard-Luck Hero D8 + Reflexes D10 + Acrobatics D8 + Doom’s Stress D8 = 4D8+D10 (5, 1, 5, 6, 8) = 14 and D8 effect.
Peter gains 1 PP (3 total) for rolling a 1, and the Doom Pool adds a D6 (2D6+2D10 total).
Spider-Man takes D10 physical stress.
As Spider-Man fights Doctor Doom with the energy beams firing all around them, Spidey tries to maneuver Doom into the path of one of the smaller beams.
Spider-Man: Solo D8 + Energy Beams D8 + Reflexes D10 + Acrobatics D8 + Doom’s Stress D8 = 4D8+D10 (5, 8, 6, 7, 7) = 15 and D10 effect.
Doom: Solo D10 + Energy Beams D4 + Durability D10 + Peter’s Stress D10 = D4+3D10 (3, 4, 3, 10) = 14 and D10 effect.
One of the D6s in the Doom Pool is stepped up to a D8 from using a D4 distinction (D6+D8+2D10 total).
Doctor Doom is hit by D10 physical stress from the energy beam, but the Watcher spends a D6 from the Doom Pool (D8+2D10 left) to activate Doom’s Preparation SFX and ignore it entirely, as the beam was one of Doom’s inventions.
At this point I’m thinking maybe the beams should have been an asset for Doom instead of a scene distinction. But maybe not. It’s hard to say.
Spider-Man: “That bolt! It struck you! But…”
Doctor Doom: “But what? Did you think I’d expose myself to my own weapon without taking precautions? I’m insulated against these bolts… they cannot harm me! But you, alas, are not so insulated… as you are now about to learn!”
For Doom’s turn, the mad doctor will grab Spider-Man and thrust him into the main disintegrator beam.
Doom: Solo D10 + Energy Beams D8 + Strength D10 + Peter’s Stress D10 = D8+3D10+ (5, 2, 1, 5) = 10 and D10 effect.
Peter will spend 1 PP (2 left) to activate the opportunity.
Spider-Man: Solo D8 + Hero D8 + Strength D10 + Doom’s Stress D8 = 3D8+D10 (7, 5, 6, 5) = 13 and D10 effect.
Locked in a struggle to not get disintegrated, Spider-Man attempts to throw both himself and Doom into the console in such a way that shuts off the energy beams!
Spider-Man: Solo D8 + Doom’s Workshop D8 + Strength D10 + Acrobatics D8 + Super-Stunt D10 + Doom’s Stress D8 = 4D8+2D10 (8, 4, 2, 5, 8, 6) = 16 and D10 effect. Peter will spend 1 PP (1 left) to add the 5 to the total, for 21 and D10 effect. Peter will spend another PP (0 left) to add a D8 as an additional effect die.
Doom: Solo D10 + Colossal Arrogance D4 + Strength D10 + Peter’s Stress D10 + Doom Pool D8 = D4+D8+3D10 (1, 7, 6, 7, 4) = 14 and D10 effect.
A D10 in the Doom Pool is stepped up to D12 (D10+D12 total) for using a D4 distinction.
Spider-Man’s D10 effect is stepped up to D12 for the extraordinary success. He will use it to inflict D12 physical stress on Doctor Doom, and the D8 to remove the Slow-Moving Energy Beams scene distinction.
Spider-Man: “It’s unbelievable! He’s like a human machine! He seems to be tireless! Another inch and I’m done for! Spider-Strength, if I ever needed you, I need you now!”
Narrator: “The amazing Spider-Man manages to twist suddenly so that both figures sprawl against the control panel, halting the deadly disintegrating bolts!”
Doom is not happy. He socks Spider-Man in the face.
Doom: Solo D10 + Colossal Arrogance D8 + Strength D10 + Peter’s Stress D10 = D8+3D10 (2, 1, 10, 6) = 16 and D8 effect.
Spider-Man: Solo D8 + Hard-Luck Hero D4 + Strength D10 + Doom’s Stress D12 = D4+D8+D10+D12 (2, 6, 7, 2) = 13 and D12 effect.
Peter gains 1 PP (1 total) for using the D4 distinction.
Doom’s D8 effect die is stepped back to D6 because of Spider-Man’s superior D12 effect die.
Spider-Man takes D6 physical stress, which steps up his stress to D12.
Narrator: “But on the verge of exhaustion due to his Herculean effort, Spider-Man cannot prevent his older, more experienced adversary from regaining his balance first and striking the initial blow!”
Doctor Doom: “This will be your finish, you clumsy fool!”
Spider-Man: “Ooof! If I had a dime for every time some cornball predicted my finish, I’d… hey! Now what?”
