The speed symbol, the attack symbol, the defense symbol, and the damage symbol are standard combat symbols and follow all normal rules. Characters can also possess combat symbols through other game effects. Characters possessing other combat symbols possess combat abilities as specified on the Powers and Abilities Card. Unless specified otherwise, these combat symbols replace the symbols currently possessed by the character. Combat abilities can be countered unless they specify otherwise. See the Powers and Abilities Card for full details on the combat abilities a character possesses.
