AMAZO’S ADAPTATION
Amazo’s Adaptation power allows him to adapt the attributes, powers, skills, and gadgets of the JLA, including ones he could not possibly “see” in action, like Telepathy. Shown here is a typical spread of powers that encompasses the “Magnificent 7.” The JLA Sourcebook, page 77, presents an Amazo who adapted the Year One JLA team.
One odd thing about Amazo is that while he is conceptually capable of adapting any attribute or skill, but he never seems to get any brighter or more capable. Thus, as a GM, I would limit him to the listed Mental attributes, Mystical attributes, skills, and advantages.
In at least one case, he was limited exclusively to active members of the JLA. No JLA, no powers!
