This has been mentioned before on other threads, but some time ago I wrote a computer program to generate the probability of getting a certain number of hits (or Trouble points) when rolling a certain number of dice under certain circumstances. The debates about the Fantastic Four's powers inspired this, so I have charts that show the effect on boosted and unboosted combat using one or both of the Containment or Invisible Force Fields powers (the latter under three different interpretations). Among other things they show that Dr. Doom goes from being able to use his combat power (requiring 3 hits on a defense roll) 90% of the time to 21% of the time when facing both Mr. Fantastic and Invisible Woman under the FAQ interpretation of the latter's support power.

Anyway, the tables are here, enjoy:
