Don't look at the eclipse without your Eclipse Safety Glasses!

 

Eclipse Safety Glasses:  Flash Defense (Sight Group, 5 points).  OAF (-1); Lockout (Striking Appearance, -1/4); Side Effects (no Sight PER while worn, -1/4).  Real Cost: 2 points.

 

Remember, everyone.  Make sure it's the entire Sight Group, which covers Infrared and Ultraviolet as well as Normal Sight!

There are two paths your character can take into the game: the path of the game guidelines document, or the path of the Character Approver 9000. Choose your path wisely.

Well, Donald Trump looked at the eclipse without protection.. Maybe his "Radiation Accident" will be beneficial for all of us.

That's just what a superhero with a Secret Identity would say to make us believe he doesn't already have powers. That's right, I'm (Hunted) Watching you, sir.

Actually, a total solar eclipse is a great excuse for mischief with characters with darkness, stellar, or magical (particularly astrological) abilities. Powers could be gained, lost, strengthened, or modified, temporarily or permanently, in whatever ways you think would make for a fun scenario.
