  • Super Powers Companion Poison vs Infection

    Is their a reason why the base versions of the Poison and Infection powers both cost 3 points? Infection seems much stronger, considering it can potentially continue to cause fatigue each round and lead to death, while that is not the case with Poison. Also it takes longer to recover fatigue from Infection as well.

    Infection is a bit stronger that Poison, but the disparity isn't as bad as you imply.

    A raise on the Vigor roll to resist will make the target immune to Infection, an especially likely outcome for high Vigor builds.
    By contrast, Poison works on everyone, every attack, unless they have an Immune to Poison power.
    I hope you find the above post useful. And not insulting, because I was trying to be helpful, not insulting; being a pedantic jerk, that isn't always clear.
