There's going to be a bit of a learning process involved—the rest of us are still getting used to it, too.
Notice: If you find yourself feeling offended by something I've written, it is extremely unlikely that I actually intended any such offense—please allow me the benefit of doubt before you respond. If you still feel the need respond to a perceived insult, please let me know, in specific, how I could have rewritten my post in an unoffensive manner.
As far as I can tell, this works for me. I like that I have a lot of weather options and am not specialized in a specific type (ie, cold-only)... I just don't know if I will be useful / good... M&M has completely flummoxed me as far as character building, so I really appreciate you guiding the process!
Cool. We can use this in the beginning and if during play you find something you don't like then we can change it.
As far as how useful/good you will be, You have blast 10 which is pretty decent for pure offense. I think the group blaster (Maverick) has either a 10 or a 12, so you aren't far off. He has a few feats though that make him more specialized at that sort of thing. You also have the "debuffing" capabilities that as far as I can remember no one else in the group has. So you are definitely filling in an important niche. You also have a broad power (Weather control) that can be power stunted into several different powers. You can also fly and have decent toughness, some of which is impervious(which if you ask those that have it is pretty awesome) Your weather control can also be used for some cool things out of combat.
So overall you are pretty well rounded and are set up to be a valuable member of the team.

Legionary: New 3-3-3
Lady Liberty. Having recently become aware of her unusual genetic relationship with Legionary, Beth Walton-Wright (Lady Liberty III) is still coming to terms with the knowledge that she is, technically, Legionary's mother. This revelation took place around Christmas of last year (approx 2 mos. or so from new game time), when the Warlord, Legionary's longtime adversary, decided to attack Beth to inflict emotional pain on his hated enemy. He was unable to stand against both Legionary and Lady Liberty, so he fled. Since that time, Guy has maintained limited contact with Beth now that she knows the truth (or at least part of it; he's not yet told her who his father was), and this has unfortunately caused further stress in her marriage since her husband was A> injured by Warlord and B> knows that he's not Guy's timelost father.
Professor Zachary Williams. A professor of Science! at Hanover Institute of Technology (HIT), he is currently one of only two people who knows the truth about The Legionary's origin as it was Professor Williams' experiments that accidentally drew Guy's battlesuit into this timeline instead of his own while he was heading backward in time. Because he blames himself, the professor has dedicated himself to helping Guy. Currently, he is the only person in this timeline completely aware of Guy's history. (Think the crazy doctor from "Fringe") Professor Williams encouraged Guy to leave academia once he realized it was not what his young(ish) friend wanted to do.
Allison Williams. Daughter of Professor Williams, she recently became a reporter at one of the local news stations. By this point, she has outgrown her "crush" on Guy (right about when he noticed she was pretty hot), and is now firmly in the step-sister mode. She is now aware that he is Legionary, but does not know about how he came to this timeline.
Samantha ("Sam") Reichert is a homosexual female, who was one of Guy's graduate assistants. Currently, she is finishing her doctorate and serves as something of a lab assistant to Guy with an implicit promise that he's going to hire her full-time once she graduates. She is aware of his alternate identity but not his genetic relationship to her. The individual whom she values most is Lady Liberty. She is also aware that he's fascinated with Lady Liberty, though she believes it's a romantic crush like others of his age. She also has a serious crush on Allison Williams.
Stephanie ("Steph") Drake is a heterosexual female, who is now pursuing an advanced degree in robotics and is fascinated with Legionary (but isn't aware of Guy's identity as Legionary. She's Sam's best friend, and is a computer nerd & gaming geek. Think early Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, before she turned into a witch. Despite her Westernized name, she's clearly half-Asian (her mom ... Cassie, who is a bad ass martial artist type that works at Master Lee's School of Defense); dad - Tim - is a detective with the FCPD. (And kudos if you get this in-joke.)
Agent Wendell McKenzie. Field agent for AEGIS, he has sort of become Legionary's go-to guy when he (Legionary) needs to contact AEGIS. McKenzie pretends to openly dislike Legionary, but their encounters has mostly convinced Guy that he (Mac) is just putting up a fake front. Mac is married, with three kids.
The Warlord is a recurring enemy of The Legionary's who is from Guy's timeline and blames The Legionary for the eradication of their universe. Unfortunately, The Warlord's plans for revenge involve destroying this timeline and restoring his. Obviously, he's a little insane ... or is he?
NAME TBD is a recurring antagonist of Legionary's whose abilities make her Legionary's equal. Like him, she utilizes a Device, but unlike him, it is purely magical-based (thus making her his direct opposite.) She speaks with a distinctively Scottish accent and is, for all intents and purposes, his "Catwoman." Her motives remain a mystery to him - he's stopped her from stealing ancient (and probably magical) artifacts from the university, and in retaliation she ... assisted him when the Warlord had him on the ropes. Guy is alternately baffled and fascinated with her.
OTHER RIVAL TBD

Ok. Had to adjust Catalyst one more time because I was using the wrong power. I was using Alternate form when the concept probably called for Shapeshift. Have updated it. I have created 5 power settings but you are not limited to these as you can redistibute 40 PP as you choose, within reason of course. This character has a great deal of versatility, so don't be afraid to get creative.
Minor update remarks. I've been planning to streamline Legionary's armor as he develops "new technology" and am eventually planning on it looking something like the below with two notable exceptions: 1) full face mask so no flesh is exposed, and 2) every where you see white, replace it with silver.
