Do you do requests? Lol.  I tried searching the topic for cyborg but couldn't find anything.  I'm trying to make a half man half machine character it'd be cool to see what you come up with.

 

What kind of Cyborg did you have in mind?  The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman were the first cyborgs in popular culture, in fact Steve Austin was introduced in a novel called "Cyborg" by Michael Caiden.  DC Comics introduced a character named Cyborg in 1980 who was a member of the New Teen Titans.

 

A few thoughts.

 

One, a character who had a Cyborg Arm would be able to punch very hard, and perhaps deflect attacks with it, but would be limited in there physical strength without their rib cage and spine being re-enforced.  So you could have a Missile Deflection and a HA, with perhaps a DF: Mechanical Arm.  For examples of Missile Deflection this took place in the updated version of the Bionic Woman (2007).  You could add Martial Strike, Defensive Strike, and Martial Block as effects of having a Bionic Arm rather then any training.  If you rationalize that the character had their rib cage and spine reinforced such as Wolverine did by having in bones injected with Adamantium, then you can change the HA to STR, No Figured Characteristics, No END.

 

Two, characters with Cyborg Legs would be able to run faster and leap longer distances then normal human.  Here is the a recommended multipower to simulate it.

 

Multipower (15 Points)

u) Leaping +10", Accurate

u) Running +5", 4x NCM

 

Three, characters would require the Physical Limitation: Requires Specialized Medical Treatment (Infrequently/Greatly) because of their Cyborg parts.

 

Four, characters with Cyborg eyes and ears have enhanced senses like Ultraviolet or Infrared Vision, Ultrasonic Hearing, and Telescopic Hearing or Sight.  A character with Ultrasonic Hearing might have the Susceptility: Intense Ultrasonic Sounds.

 

Let me know if this helps.

Cool thanks, this is helpful.  I tried looking through your listing and didn't see an entry for the actual character "Cyborg" have you ever written him up before?

Shouldn't a lot of SuperGirl's other abilities (notably those above normal characteristics and the damage resistance) also have the -1/4 Green Kryptonite/Red Sun modifier? She could then get the DR ED up to same level as the PD, as well as purchasing some of the other powers we expect her to have and push her characteristics up

This is a compromise version where her physical strength and defenses aren't effect by Green Kryptonite and Red Solar Radiation.  Another version where she has 60 STR that goes down to 50 STR when exposed to Kryptonite.  All her powers are shut down and she had Regeneration as well.

I don't know.  I think he can be made to work as a vehicle.  When I was looking at Silver Paladin it worked quite well, probably too well.  The big  challenge is how to get the DEX and SPD right; my "work around" was an IIF under-suit, a bit like a medieval knight's arming doublet.  Also with everything being OIF bulky (as it is a vehicle), the cost of the powers drops significantly.

I considered it for the Computer (JARVIS or FRIDAY) but even the smallest version was too expensive.

With Cassandra's blessing I've had my go at Iron Man as a vehicle and Jarvis.  As I don't have 5E, I've assumed they are costed up like 4E (i.e. you pay for base costs only ), but you can "double up" at 5 pts a go. I'll let someone else more familiar with 5E to modify them.  Here goes:
