Be thankful you didn't have to see it yourself.
Once again, some swearing and adult humor, but if you don't mind that and us debating the proper skin color of Marvel characters, I hope you enjoy.
Don't forget that the characters can attempt to dodge attacks. During the encounter with the glowhawks, the characters took a lot of damage. They could have at least tried to dodge, maybe someone could have avoided taking that damage :-) I'm still watching, so maybe you address that later...
Haha... you summarily ruled that they can dodge using an AGL-based action. That's pretty much how the rules actually work.
In the PHB, dodge is mentioned in name only in the Warrior skill summary in The Basics on page 5, in the rules on multi-action penalty on page 7, and the example of play there are two examples of dodge going on.
Dodging is a resistance check. Resistance checks are mentioned in the Game Guidelines section. If you successfully dodge a directed attack (like a punch) you avoid it completely, ignoring its effect (its damage, etc.). But if you successfully dodge an area attack (like a swarm of glowhawks, a grenade, or a burst of bullets) you will still sustain half damage.
