Again, the original Atom was Al Pratt. Who would be very much like you
described. Heck, I'd wager that you could do him pre-powers as a 250
point pulp. I'm fairly certain he never developed an energy blast, but
I could be wrong.

Starman, actually, shouldn't be too bad. Remember the bonuses that the
rod will give you as a device. It is definately Breakable (-15%), it's
probably at about a -4 to be hit (-15%), and it can be stolen by a
contest of ST (like a Handgun can, -15%). That gives you a total of
-45% to the power set of the Rod, whereas I assume that the GL ring
only had the limitation of Unique -25%, since it's unbreakable.
Possible another -10% for can be taken by stelath or trickery.

Also, the Rod is much more limited in what it can do than GL's ring.
You've got Flight, Superflight, an Energy Blast, a Force Field (DR),
and possibly TK.

I don't have Psionics with me today, but I'd be willing to wager that I
could do Starman on 500 points.
