    Personally I'd go with solid Defenses for both Physical and Energy (probably incorporating Damage Reduction or Negation), but add a Vulnerability to Light-based attacks, which is pretty traditional for Darkness characters.
     
     
    FWIW the official Champions Universe has something similar. In the universe containing the Earthlike world Lythrum, its "dark matter" appears to be naturally infused with magic, which the Lythrumans can utilize in many ways. Both their magicians and even their scientists draw upon this dark matter, as Lythruman technology incorporates magic in ways Terrestrial science doesn't understand. The superhero Black Rose, leader of the Sentinels team, who is half-Lythruman, can pull that dark matter from Lythrum and shape it for several effects, with the appearance of "solid darkness."
     
    Lythrum's dark power can have a "spiritually corrosive" effect on its users, gradually turning them evil, but people of strong will can resist that effect. (Black Rose is written up in Champions Universe: News Of The World, which first describes Lythrum; but Lythrum is further defined in Book Of The Empress.)
     
    Other CU characters with Darkness powers are purely magical/spiritual, but at least one mutant also displays such abilities, so their SFX can vary.

    I apologize for my slow pace. And fair warning, next month is National Novel Writing Month so I may be focused on a story besides Fish Guy.

    Do you mean the tritium (hydrogen-3)? It's probably tied up in water molecules (heavy water), and then diluted by the other seawater. Tritium is naturally found in the environment in small quantities, and tends to get processed out of the body fairly rapidly. It has a half-life of about 12.3 years, and the decay produces beta radiation.
     
     It's used in some luminescent markers for watches and gun sights.

    Probably the usual cascade of centrifuges on water vapor would work, though that is of course expensive.

    Curious timing since Biden's proposed top tax rate has been out there for the public to see for most of the past year.

    Men get paid more than women because they choose high paying careers like doctor, engineer, and CEO.
     
    Women pick low paying careers like woman doctor, woman engineer, or woman CEO.

    An Irishman took his son to the bar on his birthday to buy him his first drink.
     
    The father bought his son a stout, but he didn't like it and didn't want to drink it.
     
    The father decided to drink it for him and ordered an ale instead.
     
    He didn't like it either. So, the father drank it and ordered him a cider.
     
    Lager, cider, cream ale... he didn't like any of them, so the father drank them and ordered whiskey instead.
     
    He didn't like any of the Irish whiskeys the father ordered, so the old man drank them and decided to give up.
     
    By the time they left the bar, the father was so drunk he could barely push his son's stroller home.

    I was seriously depressed after a recent loss. My girlfriend bought me an Xbox.
     
    But that didn't help. So she tried a Playstation - no luck there either. She ended up going through everything from a Sega Master System to a Nintendo Switch, but nothing helped - turns out I was just inconsolable.
