We learn that his supercharged speedster can go 200 MPH and stop on a dime.
It's unclear how the Wizard stores Secret Formula F22X on his person; it's clearly not in a metal container.
Sparks from the exhaust setting the plane on fire is another complication to add to a random table.
An H2-Vx-O Ray that makes rain is a pretty specific trophy item. The funny/not-funny thing about this is that a nerve gas called VX will be developed over 10 years later.
The Wizard's photographic mind works like a Danger Sense, which needs to become a superhero power that keeps you from being surprised for the duration.
That leap looks like the Leap I power, since the plane comes down so low. Of course, planes will always have to fly down low when Heroes are ground-based.
Now this tactic is ...let's say unusually described here. It seems clear to me that the Wizard is using Sean Connery's tactic from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade where he gets the birds flying in order to blind the pilot with dead birds. It's a gruesome tactic, and one the editor seems to have shied away from, explaining in the narration that the pilots are so stupid that they can mistake geese for planes.
Considering how violent some other MLJ titles will be in the near future, it seems odd that they shied away from violence here.
I do not recommend to my players that they try sitting on the broken off tail end of planes and trying to bring them in for safe landings by tugging on cords attached to the tail rudders; I'm pretty sure I'm going to be inflicting some falling damage regardless, unless he's using the Feather Landing power here.
Look at that, a Hero using quicksand to his advantage!
The high speed propulsion gun allows him to levitate, or is flavor text for the Levitate power.
The avalanche is caused by rocking things. Ha, honest typo -- I meant wrecking things!
Dick here uses tactics, trying to turn his enemies against each other. H&H module RT1 Palace of the Vamp Queen is set up for that, with two warring factions of brigands controlling opposing sides of the building -- but I never did get players interested in pitting one side against the other.
