This page is in need of cleanup! As such, it has been added to the Page Needs Work category. Please help the Superpower Wiki by fixing the issues listed in this notice.

Issues with this Page: Requires clarification - how is this different from Superpowered Physiology?

Also, the text of Capabilities sections needs a cleanup - it appears to contradict itself..


"I have taken godhood to a new level. Divinity made perfect. With a body that befits a Kai, one that is invincible."
― Future Zamasu explaining about his Immortality (Dragon Ball Super)

The power to be an empowered subject. Not to be confused by Superpowered Physiology, but in general, it is also a variation of it. Opposite to Mutant Physiology.

Also Called

  • Advanced/Evolved Physiology
  • Advanced/Evolved Being Physiology
  • Micromutant/Micromutated Physiology (Rational Only)
  • Meta/Neo/Super Physiology
  • Metabeing/Neobeing/Superbeing Physiology
  • Metarace/Neorace Physiology
  • Modified Physiology (Rational Only)
  • Superior Physiology

Capabilities

The user either is or can become an empowered subject with powers and abilities that aren’t gained from birth or have abilities beyond the limitations of their race, and are much more powerful stronger than regular races. Empowered races are able to possess powers and abilities without their physiology being or almost altered. This is not to be confused with Superpowered Physiology as it focuses on specific races that possess straight-up supernatural abilities in terms of what their physiology entails, like the instance of Angels, and Ghosts.

Another difference is that they have supernatural abilities, but they in no way have obtained them through events of any kind, as they are natural to what their kin has. But as for the empowered subjects, the differences are, that the subjects, while they may or may not have unnatural abilities in terms of what they possess ever since of whatever race they are apart of, one of those members have gone through experiences that caused them to obtain brand new powers that don't come with their racial physiology to begin with, supernatural or not. The user of this physiology aren't a different sub-species as they wouldn't be fully altered, but are just only that in a theoretical standpoint.

As there are different methods on how they get them, they are divided into two groups:

Rational

Beings of this category gain their powers through evolution, birth, genetic engineering, exposition to radiation or biohazardous substances, like mutagens, or other scientific means.
In some ways, certain individuals that are of this classification might undergo minor physical changes without their physiology being fully or almost gone, like their irises changing to any color like a fiery shade of yellow, red, etc, retractable claws or spikes, fangs or sharp teeth, among others. Moreover, these kinds of beings will be able to possess powers without their physiologies being altered.

Irrational

Non-scientific individuals gain their powers by being given them, enchantment, blessing, granted wishes, etc., without bio-engineering based alternatives. Unlike scientific-based beings this category of meta-beings wouldn't have to be able to suffer mutations and instability of their DNA, which can be caused in a certain specific way. Unlike rational based beings they are more likely to maintain their respective states because they don't share the same genetic unpredictably that rational-based beings are more likely to have.

Variations

Associations

Limitations

  • Unless they have specific immunities/resistances, users may have the same weaknesses as regular races in particular.
  • Genetic-based abilities may become unstable and cause unwanted mutations. In worse cases, they might become a monstrous mutant if they aren't treated.

Notes (Please Read)

Before anyone can edit the page, It should be advised to all people that users that have Homo Superior, Homo Magi Superior, Homo Magi, to Superanimal Physiology are not allowed here since they already have their own pages. Besides that, this focuses on users that haven't got a specific empowered physiology article. For instance, Lucas Cage had already deserved a spot on the Homo Superior Physiology article, which to be more precise, are empowered Humans.

Universal Differences

In the essence of having different archetypes in their own terms, micromutation and mutation are drastically similar to each other. By definition, mutation is mainly physical transformation through scientific means, the most prominent being mutagens and viruses. Those with that kind of physiology are mainly known as Mutants, also referred to as Freaks or Deviants. They are a type of monster of various sci-fi media, and they are basically formerly normal beings that have been physically deformed and lost any trace of what they used to be.

Those that have been micromutated however are identified on the lesser end of the spectrum, they are basically scientifically or non-scientifically micromutated, but the mutations are only just considered minor without their overall physiological statures being grotesquely transformed into Deviants. Another fact to note is that micromutated individuals, don't exactly share a lot in common with Mutants on the other hand. Micromutation is the truest step forward in gaining superpowers, whereas mutation simply almost does the exact opposite of what the latter does. Micromutation is also considered safer compared to mutation.

Trivia

  • By definition, the prefix Meta, simply means beyond, which also qualifies to empowered beings that they are races that are beyond the limitations of their kind, which would make them the very staple of their derivative race that they stem from.
  • Depending on the amount of powers they possess, especially regarding resistance/immunity, etc, empowered beings can be much stronger and more powerful than their regular species in the long run. For example, they could survive environments that would be otherwise dangerous to regular races, they can defeat threats that normal races couldn't fight back, and can even handle occupations to a much better intuitive standard, as well as acquiring better skills that normal species could never hope to reach.
