Hello all! I'm going to be playing M&M for the first time, and I was hoping to get some feedback on my character. This is the first time I've ever done a build from scratch, so I want to make sure it doesn't have any glaring issues.
Thanks in advance!

Motivation – Duty: As the Mantle Bearer, Elias is honor-bound to fight evil wherever it might hide.
Power Loss – If Elias misuses the Mantle, he will lose access to its power, including Excalibur and the Armor of Avalon.
Enemy – The Knights of the Round were the sworn enemies of Morgana Le Fay in ancient times. After acquiring the Mantle, Elias barely managed to destroy Morgana. Though the sorceress is no more, dark magic transcends time and space, and she may still have followers in the modern day.
King Arthur, as most know him, was not a man, but a mantle of power passed down a line of noble warriors sworn to defend Albion from black magic. A group of followers, known as the Knights of the Round, grew up around the Bearer of the Mantle
Elias Tristram, the only son of a pig farmer, joined the Knights after his family was killed in a massacre orchestrated by Morgana Le Fay. Elias was neither the strongest, nor the swiftest, but what he lacked in physical ability he made up for in heart. However, this stubbornness often caused Elias to be reckless.
After years of guerilla warfare, the Knights, led by Therese Pendragon, the Mantle Bearer of that time, cornered Morgana in her lair. Emboldened by the thought of revenge, Elias stumbled right into a trap. After a bloody battle, only Therese and Elias stood facing Morgana. The Witch Queen sought to quickly kill Elias, but Therese interposed, suffering a mortal wound. However, Therese was able to deliver a grievous wound of her own, causing Morgana to flee into her inner sanctum.
As her final act, Therese passed the Mantle onto Elias, instructing him to fulfill their task. Alone, and afraid, Elias braved the horrors of the inner sanctum. In the climactic battle between the Mantle and Morgana, Elias narrowly managed to deliver the killing blow. The Witch Queen was no more.
Elias carried the body of Therese back to Avalon, where she was laid to rest among the previous Bearers of the Mantle. With their ancient enemy defeated, Nimue cast Elias into a deep sleep, to await the day that the world once again needed the power of the Mantle.
Centuries later, Elias awakens upon a world of concrete and steel, as darkness once again creeps across the land.
