I usually find Multiple Attack to be overly limiting. Way to many penalties in Superheroics to use it.

 

My Fantasy HERO group is in the tier 4 range by D&D standards and they are finally feeling the bite of the 1/2 DCV penalty for Multiple Attacking.  Now that OCV/DCVs are getting into the 11-12 range and damage output is in the DC 10-14 range they are reluctant to set themselves up for a head-shot by going 1/2 DCV.

 

However, on the other side of the balancing see-saw I had to cap Multiple Attacks at 2 swings otherwise anyone who got stunned/flashed/grabbed/entangled would be triple or quadruple attacked and finished instantly.  I find Entangle - especially the variants that don't take damage from attacks - to be very rough on game balance.

By that point buying Defensive Attack would have been a priority to me.
