That's amazingly useful, thanks.
Sorry, teenager decided to restart Internet without telling anybody. Told him he had to read my mind and restore my post by typing it back in, but he doesn't seem to have developed telepathy yet.
Anyway, I described the guy earlier in this thread, and it's nothing 10 seconds on Google wouldn't turn up for you. The original Angel debuted in 1939, and was a Doc Savage/Mr. Terrific 'good at everything' type, with the twist that he learned his skills from the convicts in the jail where his father was warden. He is definitely part of MU continuity, having been the narrator and appeared in the recent Marvels Project miniseries.
The problem with having a 'Training' power set with a bunch of D8s in it for these sorts is that by and large, not only aren't they as strong as Cap is due to the super-soldier serum, they aren't as good in other ways either. Therefore even just Enhanced Reflexes D8 and so on like the Black Widow has is a bit much. Well, the Angel might just barely be able to justify it, but not the original Patriot, who was pretty much just an everyman newspaper reporter with a really good right hook. On the other hand, the problem with just leaving the physical stats alone rather than giving them D6s is that, unlike a lot of the villains in Breakout, they don't have regularly carried weapons or body armor to use as power sets and get that fourth die for their dice pools, so they're either working with only three dice or have to do something like split their Specialty die.
