Cannonball

Those of you familiar with Cannonball from the comics know where I'm coming from here.

My out of the box player wants to make a character than uses flight and force field and/or Unbreakable Shield to fly at max speed towards opponents and bowl them over.

So now I realize there are no Knockdown rules that I know of, and no rules for charging somebody at speed (besides Ramming for vehicles).

Need some help making this work.

Rocket rangers have some ramming perks, and there's a perk in the NE backer archetypes (the edeinos rocket ranger) which might be worth looking at for inspiration on how to model this?

While there's no specific mechanic for knockdown, it is easy enough to replicate with conditions.

Do a Maneuver against someone and make him Stymied or Vulnerable (or both) to reflect how him being knocked over is disadvantageous. Get a Player's Call, and the guy could be splayed out and scrabbling to get back on his feet for a round.
