Not that this is even close to "meta", but I would think a power shouldn't be completely unusable due to your inherent!

 

EDIT: Both Tanker and Brute (below) were tested on Brainstorm.

Actual NPC behavior: attacking me.  In fact, me checking to see just how terrible my accuracy must be (because they kept ignoring and attacking me) is the reason I noticed.

Placate or Pacify sort of run contrary to working in a Tanker or Brutes Arsenal, both Fury and Gauntlet have a Taunt Aspect, with no way to turn them off.

But it might be fun to watch a NPC waffle for hours between Kicking your Butt or Kissing it. I don't think anythings broke, just a doomed combo.

or there are Sappers, Man I hate those Guys...)

Off meta by a lot, but no, it is very much "broke."

No matter how bad a pick the power is, doing literally nothing is the definition of broken.

 

The reason I mentioned Brute's being a bit bigger deal is there are plenty of brutes who do not want to tank, such as thematically "speedy" characters that use Fury to represent building momentum. That's a character that might spring for this or Misdirection (haven't tested, but probably broken as well) to help their "move in a blur" hit-and-run tactics.

At best id call it working as designed but not as intended.  I doubt they meant for a power to be automatically useless because of an inherent ability.

Yes, this exactly.  The funny thing about "as designed" is nothing is capable of being designed for the thing overlooked.
