"Don't be startled. It's just an average, everyday elastic arm."
― Reed Richards/Mister Fantastic to Hopper Hertnecky (Marvel Comics)

The ability to stretch one's limbs independently of one's own body. Sub-power of Elasticity and Limb Manipulation.

Also Called

  • Elastic Limbs
  • Stretchable/Stretching Limbs


The user can stretch their limbs (arms, legs, neck, torso, etc.) to great lengths. This ability allows the user to extend their limbs to faraway areas to strike opponents at a distance and defeat long-range attackers.




  • User can only stretch certain limbs unless they also possess full Elasticity.
  • User's torso is still stationary while the user is stretching their limbs, therefore making it vulnerable to attacks.
