From the desk of Mids, Honourable United's Lord of Numbers comes Mids' Hero (and Villain) Designer!

Mids' Hero Designer lets you plan your hero or villain's build, starting with archetype and powersets, going right through enhancement slotting and calculating the effects of self-buffs.

Not only can you plan your build, but you can also find a wealth of stats on your powers, and see them affected by eachother and slotted enhancements.

It probably goes without saying, but to the best of my knowledge, and after a reasonable amount of testing (by my team of heroic and villainous guinea pigs), there isn't anything harmful that it can do, and it's been checked by fully up-to-date McAfee Antivirus. It can be uninstalled using Add/Remove programs in the Windows Control Panel.
