"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.

Also Called

  • Elastic Limbs
  • Mystic Attack
  • Stretching Limbs


The user is capable of stretching their limbs (arms, legs, neck, torso, etc.) to great lengths. This ability allows the user to extend their limbs to far away 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.
