If I understand it, Gentleman will change sides at a cost of 1 AP.

Where does the AP go? To my opponent?

Can I bribe him at any time?

Can my opponent bribe him to switch back?

Does bribary take an action?

Can the new controller of Gentleman use him immediately?

You've got it all wrong. Genteman can be used by a player using heros for the cost of 1 resource point during team construction. He doesn't switch sides mid game.

Wow! That makes perfect sense now that you say it but the Trait is very confusing (to me at least).

Greed (X): The Supreme cares more for money.
He can be recruited by the opposite team under
certain conditions. A Villain may join Heroes, or
a Hero may join Villains upon paying the value of
X from the team?s Resources Pool.

Maybe a rewording like:

Greed (X): The Supreme cares more for money.
At the beginning of the game, when you are forming your team, this Supreme can be recruited by the opposite team. A Villain may join Heroes, or a Hero may join Villains. To recruit this Supreme to the opposing team requires paying the value of (permanently removing) X from the team?s Resources Pool.

Actually I think its the words "may be recruited by the opposite team" that makes the whole thing out of whack. Thats the part, that to me, suggested he is somehow switching sides and depriving the player who was originally going to use him of a level one Supreme.

Something along the lines of,

Greed (x) : The Supreme cares more for money than loyalty, and may join Heros if a Villian and Vice Versa. When forming your team this Supreme may be included in your team by expending X resource points.

would probably be a lot clearer. It's funny I never really looked at the wording until you asked this question and I realized it was pretty open to interpretation.

Well, it says to pay from the resource pool...the only time you pay from resource pool is at team creation. Hope that helps as well.
