With this perk, you gain +10% to overall Damage Resistance, up to the maximum of 85%. You will also gain a unique dialogue option when talking to Ted Strayer during the quest "You Gotta Shoot 'Em in the Head".
Fallout: New VegasEdit
With each rank of this perk, you gain a permanent +3 to your Damage Threshold.
This perk is ideal for players using light armor. It is also noted that the perks Travel Light, and Light Touch go well with this perk for those who are using light armor.
Even tougher than the old Toughness! No longer just bullets and punches, now you can resist fire, plasma, and grenades!

Behind the scenesEdit
The image for this perk is a reference to Superman, especially in Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics since the Vault Boy also has the Superman hairstyle.
