Manipulation still exists, but it's only available to Global and above level characters.
TK is fine, if you want to refine it a bit you can use Ranged, Area Effect, Multi-Attack, etc to make it work for you.
Also, as to your signature, I can't figure out what your beef is with Judd Winick specifically. Care to elaborate?
Thanks. I can't find Energy Body under street level characters so would it be alright for me to use transformation if her body can into water? Or is it just not something I can do under street level?
I don't have a beef with Winnick per se. It's just an amusing conversation I saw on another site. Basically a Staff member on this site was asking members what questions they would like answered when she interviews Judd Winnick. One member suggests a question and the Staffer agrees that it is a good question and that she will ask it. Then another member, who happens to be a friend, points out that it's a stupid question because Judd Winnick didn't actually create the character in question. He was pointing out their complete ignorance on the subject. He then continues on about how Winnick is a lazy writer, which I personally have no opinion on.
