Came across this answer:
In a SPC Standard (power point option) Common Comic Campaign a starting character get 15 power points because inherent power grants Arcane Background (Super Powers) for 10 power points and super karma grants 5 power points to the character. Then a novice can take the power point edge as one of the beginning Edge to get another 5 power points for a total of 20 power points.
So did I do it correctly?
Yes, if using the Setting Rules from the Common Comic Campaigns sidebar on page 10, then a character who takes the additional Hindrance from Super Karma and gets the Power Points Edge his one time for Novice would have a total of 20 PPs (10+5+5).
If you design your own race from the core rule book (mine is the deluxe as I'm led to believe that makes a difference), then can you, in addition to the 20 (10+5+5) Clint mentioned above, ALSO:
1) Add +10pp for one Arcane Background (+2 ability)?
2) Add +5pp for one Arcane Background (+1 ability)?
3) Add BOTH of the above?
