Based off what I've seen on Champions, the giant grey "!" could mean a couple things. Because it's grey, I'm leaning more towards option one. For option two in CO, it's usually a more dramatic shape and brightly colored.

1> This is a mission objective NPC. The player might not yet have fulfilled the necessary requirement to talk to it, such as eliminating all of the surrounding threats. The giant grey "!" might then turn white to indicate the NPC can be interacted with.

2> The NPC is about to unleash a massive attack on the player party, which would require a blocking action to reduce damage.

Anyone else have thoughts on this?
