The Control classification encompasses all those powers which allow a metahuman to create agents, ranging from simple remote-controlled automatons to fully independent, perhaps even sentient entities.
The ability often entails a unrated Perception or Control rating allowing the metahuman to completely control their creations or share their senses, respectively.
