Overview

Force Field is a standard power set that is a primary set for Defenders and a secondary set for Controllers and Masterminds.

"The Force Field powers give you the ability to create shells of energy that protect yourself and your allies from various forms of damage and harm. Force Fields do not reduce damage, but reduces your allies chance of getting hit in the first place."
