I'm back! I'm happy to wait until needed - this looks like a cool battle :)
Would it be possible in an action to reach back, rip up a chunk of the ground and swing it overhead to smash down on the guy? Basically not really going for anything but hitting him in melee without dealing with the damage aura hitting my fists.
It's possible for you to do that. You've got an effective Strength of 45 for lifting, and that seems like it should be enough for tearing the pavement apart. It's a move action to rip it up, and a standard action to attack.
The one thing I'd worry about (more from an IC perspective) is whether you can tear a piece of pavement up and hit White Knight without hitting the girl. You might want a lightpost or automobile instead (and either of them will be adjacent to you if you spend a Hero Point, which is probably safe to do at this point without fear of White Knight overpowering you.)
I don't really need some massive chunk of pavement I would think, just one, like, slightly bigger than my head, to swing as an impromptu club as backed with the full force of my strength.
...that's pretty cool.
No problem. This is a superhero story, so we can also assume that you get a chunk of the approximate size and shape you're looking for.
I personally like grabbing the street, then pulling it up like a rug to trip a person. :)
Well, my roll was exceptionally crap with a 13 total, fortunately his being stunned should hopefully means it lands anyway.
Save DC of 25 for the damage assuming it does.
His normal Defense is 20, which means his dodge bonus is +5. That brings him down to 15. However, stunned also introduces an additional -2, so you just barely hit.
His toughness save is 17, not enough to stagger him again, but enough to stun him. I'll post in-character for that and for the girl's attack.
And with the update: Yeah, her attack was enough to KO him (since he was already staggered). For the record, she used Fire Control on his Aura to cook him alive with his own flame. It is very fitting her personality, as you'll see.
