Red Sonja: Mutants and Masterminds 3rd Edition

Was re-reading my Mutants and Masterminds 3rd Edition book here and thought I should give Sonja a try.
I put her at PL 9, which is about where she would be for the Warriors and Warlocks book for M&M 2nd Ed.  Plus it puts on par with Tarot Witch of the Black Rose. The two certainly seem distantly related. Or maybe not so distantly really.

Fairly pleased with this build.  I am sure it is a matter of opinion where fighting skills vs her agility vs her strength lie, but this woks out well.

Interesting build, I may have to steal it and file off the serial numbers for my upcoming M&M game.

Very good build indeed. Spot on, I'd say.

Thanks all!

Her Fighting might be a little high I have been told (high from a rule pov not a character one) so I am going to revisit it in a bit.

@Ka-Blog: not sure, have to look that up.

She should be PL 10. Even then she would need her hth or str lowered. The bonus to damage and the bonus to hit cannot exceed the PL times 2. In your case the Max would be 18. Just throwing that out as I just read It mtyself.
