"When a man is faced with his own death, he finds the impossible less of a barrier."
― The Prince (Prince of Persia: Warrior Within)
"Even in death, the human body still remains active. Hair and fingernails continue to grow. New cells are produced... and the brain itself holds a small electrical charge... that takes months to dissipate. The T"-"virus" provides a massive jolt... both to cellular growth... and to those trace electrical impulses. Put quite simply, it reanimates the body."
― Red Queen (Resident Evil)
"I never saw it coming... but I felt it. I tried to vibrate my inner molecules to save my brain even as the bullet was tearing through. And in that moment, that very infintesimal split-second before death, I drew the Speed Force into me with every ounce of willpower I had left. I literally bought time. I'd expanded my moment of dying into days, maybe weeks... but it's like operating in a fog. Everything's a little unreal, and warped. I feel like I'm walking through water sometimes, and then when I speed up, I can feel my life slipping away."
― Professor Zoom (Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay)
"You guys give me a reason to live...even if I'm already dead."
― Makasu (Gemusetto: Death Beats)

The power to continue doing something after dying. Sub-power of Impossible State Survival. Not to be confused with Amortality, Undead Physiology or Reanimation.

Also Called

  • Lifeless Mobility


User can continue doing something even after they have died, allowing them to continue to act even after their life has ended either by dying naturally or having been killed. So they could continue to fight someone after they died or even finish a project that they weren't able to while they were still alive.

Unlike Undead Physiology user is not truly undead, rather their body continues to move and react until all their remaining energy/stamina is gone and they finally stop moving or until their goal is completed.
