Effect: Summon Duplicate, Active • 3 points per rank
You can create a duplicate of yourself. Your duplicate is a minion with the same traits as you, except for this power and any victory points. You can spend your own victory points for your duplicate’s actions.
You must have this power at a rank equal to your own character point total (not counting Duplication), divided by 15, and rounded up for your duplicate to possess your full abilities. If you have it at a lower rank, create your duplicate as a scaled-down version of yourself, with a power level equal to your rank in this power and starting character points determined accordingly (power rank x 15). So a power level 11 hero who has Duplication 8 creates a power level 8 “duplicate” with (8 x 15) 120 character points and proportionately lower-ranked traits.
Your duplicate thinks and acts just like you, so it is automatically helpful toward you. Gamemasters should generally allow the hero’s player to determine the duplicate’s actions. Your duplicate disappears if your power is countered for any reason. You can also make your duplicate disappear at will by turning off your power.
You can apply Summon modifiers to this power (see Summon). Use the Multiple Minions extra to be able to create multiple duplicates.
