Ok, I will add my Solo D8, my "Man of Science" Distinction at D8 [calculating the vector of the shot], my Radiation Control D10 [to redirect the laser if it gets close] and my Science Expert D8 [since I understand how light moves from a physics standpoint (even though one of his milestones shows that he is a geneticist)].
Ok so this is D10+3D8 to dodge the laser blast.
Have I been Flim-Flammed? Or are these plausible uses of his 'stats'? I know the player wasn't purposefully meta-gaming and i was kindve like 'eh', but let it ride.
What do you all think?

Of course, from a comic book standpoint, there may need to be some divisions made - afterall, in comics, mastery over magnetism (which should be one of the most versatile and dangerous powers ever, as it would allow control over the entire electromagnetic spectrum) tends to actually just refer to ferrokinesis (that is, the manipulation of metal objects)...
