This powerful mutation will seriously harm or kill one opponent.  The mutant must first make a ranged attack against the target.  If the attack succeeds, the target must then make a save versus death. If the save succeeds, the target will lose 10 plus the power score modifier x10% of its available hit points. If the defense fails, the target creature is killed outright.  This mutation is blocked by any type of full body armor (Such as powered armor) and will not pass through any kind of force field.  Furthermore this mutation will only work on living creatures – robots or other such non-living targets are immune to this. This ability can be used once plus the power score modifier (minimum of 0) times per day and has a range of 4 times the power score in feet.
