The European Resistance is Recruiting!

Mutants and Masterminds
Estimated Members Requested: 3
The MERLIN Chronicles is an Indiana Jones-like game, with ancient treasures, mysterious powers and lots of adventure. We finished the second chapter and need some new volunteers going into the third. Players new to the system are more than welcome. Note: this game is slow-moving, with an average of a post per week. That's just the reality of how this game works, so don't expect to go too much faster. If that's too slow for your tastes, please don't apply.
New characters will be part of the European resistance, as there is no other plausible way to get your characters involved. That doesn't mean you can't be American (perhaps you were a paragon soldier separated from the others). You must also be able to speak English. Format your applications like the ones on the Volunteer List here. Make sure you include a name (no code names), physical description (pictures are nice but not required), personality, background, a description of your powers, and a writing sample. I'm using the Paragons and Golden Age supplements to MnM 2e, but neither are required. The game is now PL 6, but effectively 5 for all limits and caps required at character creation. Stats are not the most important part. The other PC's were accepted more on the strength of their characters than anything else. When it comes to powers, don't tell me in game mechanics what you want to do; tell me what you want to do and we'll make it work within the rules. Remember to try and be appropriate to the time period and tone and you should be good to go.
Take a look at the Volunteer List in the game forum for what's already in the game (and the Records Office to see who used to be). Give me something different than what's been done. Remember, if you want to play an American male character, you either need to have a reason to be exempt from military service or have a rank; otherwise you're not likely to be in Europe anyway. I like to see a variety in age, race, economic class, education--not just a variety in powers. The more original an idea is, the more I'm likely to like it.
I think that about covers it, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask. Now let's see what you got.
In 1937, a major blackout rolled across the eastern coast of North America and the west shores of Europe. It lasted for two days. When the lights came back on, numerous people in both areas displayed strange powers. Some thought it was the work of the Devil, or maybe of aliens. No one had any answers. At the least, no one spoke of any.
