"The Multiverse, every universe in it, is irrational, sloppy. I try to make it rational. I try to make it neat. You call it murder. How can I murder myself 123 times? I just took those wasted energies and transferred them to one container: me. What if that is our fate? To unite with ourselves, to be unified forever. To be one. I will be The One."
― Gabriel Yulaw (The One)

The ability to absorb/assimilate alternate versions of oneself to gain power. Sub-power of Alternate-Self Manipulation. Not to be confused with Duplication Absorption or Alternate-Self Merging.

Also Called

  • Alternate Self-Assimilation

  • User may become more unstable for each alternate self that is absorbed.
