Running through the first mission and it says to activate the bombs is a Difficulty 3 Manipulation check. Doing it remotely with a computer is also Difficulty 3.

Can the minions here (i.e. not Bane) actually do this?

My understanding is that if you don't have a die on the card for Manipulation or Thought then you can't do those. And the few minions that have them are either a single yellow or orange die, which would not give enough successes to succeed on the action.

What am I missing here?

If they don’t have dice to do it, they can’t do it. They could do an automatic manipulation, but these are complex manipulations, so no, only certain characters can do this.

For Manipulation the Thugs with Firearm roll a white and orange die which can give them up to 4 successes.
For Thought the Thugs with Crowbar roll a white and yellow die (and may reroll the white die) which can give them up to 4 successes.

Also, I believe the minions capable of doing a complex manipulation/thought action actually roll two dice (yellow and white if I'm not mistaken). :-)

I think you might be the latest victim to "see right through" the white die and consider it a blank or something. It is actually a white die.
