In the first Agents of Atlas, M-11 is the agent that secretly motivates the plot, with some collusion of Yellow Claw. This is an odd Milestone, that requires you to collude with the Watcher to define the nature of your secret mission.

M-11 was posted in the previous incarnation of this site. He is the tank of the team.

For me, the challenge in creating him was both in getting his powers right and in maintaining game balance. I downgraded his Heat Ray to D10, but upgraded his Stamina to D12 (to match the Vision YR126). I had considered giving him both Area Attack and Multipower SFX — but decided they were too much together. I had originally written up the Self-Repair SFX to be similar to the Second Wind SFX — but changed it to more resemble the Fast Healing SFX (to match Wolverine BR96), which seemed to me to better represent the power as depicted in the comic.

Next: And now for me to work on his Secret Program milestone! Stay tuned.
