Blink: The Role Playing Game
Some of you may remember the old Marvel Superheros Roleplaying Game.
Here's my shot at a set of Blink Stats (mostly taking into account AoA

Spatial Displacement: Amazing(50)
Blink's powers have been described as "spatial displacement" by Holocaust
in Astonishing X-Men 4. This gives her the following
- Displace object/individual: Blink can cut pieces out of objects or
individuals by displacing them. At full power, Blink cuts with power rank
ability and deals Remarkable (30) damage to the target. If target is an
inanimate object of RM or less Material Strength, it no longer functions.
Effects on stronger materials vary at judge's discretion based on what
effect putting a hole in an object would have. Used on body armor,
creates a hole which can be targetted as a called shot. (Used on
Battleship in X-Men 37, for massive property
damage and a hole in Holocaust's armor in Astonishing
When targetting individuals, can be used at full power for RM damage as
above. Alternately, Blink can displace an individual for a fraction of a
second, with power rank ability, forcing that individual to roll against
a stun effect of Amazing (50) intensity. Triple all Karma losses for
Blink due to uses of her power on people. (Astonishing
X-Men 2 for stunning, Uncanny 317 for
attacking Harvest at full power, and for karma limitation.)
- Teleportals: AoA Blink was capable of creating teleportals,
which allowed her to transport herself. She can teleport herself without
rolling, unless in combat situations. In or other pressure situations,
she can teleport herself with power rank ability to either a location
within her line of sight, or to a familiar location, such as a homebase.
Other normal teleportation rules apply. (Astonishing
X-Men 1 and Tales 1 for home base, Astonishing X-Men 4 for line-of-sight combat
Blink can also use teleportals to transport others, or objects. This type
of portal takes a full turn to open, with power rank ability. The
effective range is literally from Kansas to the Blue Area of the Moon (Tales 1), with the above restriction on combat
situations. Once opened, such a portal remains open until Blink closes
it, an action she can take with power rank ability. (Astonishing X-Men 1, among others)
Blink can also use teleportals to redirect projectiles (or herself, if in
flight, as in Astonishing X-Men 4!). Blink does this
by opening a portal in front of a moving object, redirecting it with
Remarkable (30) ability. This operates at Amazing (50) ability if the
target is a projectile which a teammate throws directly into the portal.
In the latter case, multiple projectiles can be redirected at a -2 CS to
all rolls for each projectile beyond the first (I.E. -4Cs for three
projectiles). (X-Men Omega)
- Charge Object: AoA Blink carried Darts (see below) which she could
charge. Blink can charge one dart per turn without rolling, even under
combat circumstances. (Otherwise, she charges at power rank ability, with
the usual multiple action penalty.) Charged objects inflict Material
Strength damage ignoring body armor, but not force fields, or can be used
to attempt to displace or teleport the target. In the latter case, roll
to hit (Melee or ranged as appropriate) then resolve as normal with -2CS
penalties to any rolls. (Astonishing X-Men 4)
- Darts: These Darts, carried by AoA Blink, inflict typical (6) edged
damage, and have Remarkable(30) Material Strength.
Talents: Weapon Specialist (Darts), Tumbling
