Lots of Mega-Stamina, by itself, isn't actually much use, since there are only two Abilities linked to it, and it's overpriced compared to Armor for the defensive benefits it provides. However, this character was specifically built around the premise of lots of Mega-Stamina, so there you go.

Eufiber is actually the cheapest possible way to boost soak, since five dots can be had for one nova point.
