Overview[]

Radiation Blast is one of the powersets. It is a Corruptor and Sentinel primary power set and a Defender secondary power set, and, as of Issue 16, a Blaster primary power set.

Blast your foes with lethal radiation. Radiation Blast powers can bypass normal defenses, and lower your target's overall defense.
