I was reading the rules on Healing and Adjustment Powers, and noticed something odd. Under the general rules about Adjustment Powers, it says Defense Powers: To balance the usefulness of defenses in the HERO System, the effect of any Adjustment Power that increases or decreases any of the following is halved: any Defense Power; the Characteristics CON, DCV, DMCV, PD, ED, REC, END, BODY, and STUN Healing is listed as an Adjustment Power, so would Healing have half effect on BODY? That doesn't sound right, and it contradicts multiple examples in the descriptio
So, we are building a character who has a variety of "leadership" abilities that can have mechanical effect in the game. This is my semi-realistic, heroic level, guns and martial arts, spec ops and private eyes and such. Any "special abilities" by the PCs have to fall within the "could be explained away."

Does this 20 point power also work if someone is ill and close to death? Is some combination of the immunity and the healing pow
Healing is an Adjustment Power. Adjustment Powers have half effect on "Defensive Characteristics" such as BOD, STUN, & END. Does Healing therefore have half effect when restoring BOD, STUN, & END, the very abilities it would seem to be designed to effect and will be used for most often? edit: Thank you, I was pretty sure that was the answer but I hadn't found it after a search so I decided to ask.
