Overview

Robotics is a standard power set that is a primary set for Masterminds.

"Robotics allows you to construct an army of mechanical henchmen and repair and upgrade them in order to keep your army in tip-top shape. Robot Henchmen generally have good resistances to Lethal, Cold and Psionic damage, as well as Sleep, Fear and Disorient. They are vulnerable to EMP attacks. Robot Henchmen cannot be resurrected. "

You can summon one to two powerful Protector Bots (depending on your level). Protector Bots can defend your army by placing Force Fields on you and your allies.

You may only have 2 Protector Bots under your control at any given time. If you attempt to summon more Protector Bots, you can only replace the ones you have lost in battle. If you already have two, the power will fail.
