Angst Nuke YKTTW Discussion
A character releases bottled, superhuman rage and literally blows up. The building they were in, as well as any buildings in a mile's radius, are leveled. Many die. But strangely, the originator of the explosion is usually unharmed. Very rarely can be a Suicide Attack, if it is done on purpose and kills the user. Might also rarely be Why Am I Ticking?, if the detonation trigger is specifically tied to the character's rage. I'll give Rolling Updates a shot for once. Needs A Picture.
