What was your criteria for considering if a character had Cellular Activation? Because I'm looking at the KU's and doing some cursory searches makes me question this.
For example, how does Emporio Ivankov have this power? Sonic the Hedgehog? Pokemon using Recover? Those are all valid for having a power that specifically allows you to speed up cell function to enable quick healing? All of those users are valid users of a form of Cellular Manipulation?
Lemme put it like this - how did you research all of them while also editing like two other things in that span of time and then also come to the conclusion that you'd fixed it enough to pull off the Cleanup AND CfD? Because just removing those because you disagree is a violation, and if that's what you did this is an official warning.
In Pokemon, Recover is specifically described as activating and restoring the user's cells to heal. As for Sonic, his Sonic Heal move basically follows the same concept as the Fladh; vibrating molecules to stimulate cell growth and heal.
As for Ivankov, his hormones operate like that: changing someone on a cellular/genetic level. It's how he saved Luffy's life.
In Pokemon it describes restoring those cells, not 'activating' or any other such wording that would indicate that the description for Cellular Activation is what's going on here. The art for it has always just been the user glowing and then sorta healing/regenerating. There's no reason to think this is cell manipulation just because part of the healing involved regenerating cells - if that were the case then this massive overreaching power would cover basically all healing abilities across fiction that can do more than sew wounds shut. It's absurd to think that any power that involves the mention of the word 'cells' is a usage of Cellular Activation.
The cleanup and CfD (that you took down) made it pretty clear that only users of this power who have it very expressly in fiction should be listed as Known Users, as this is a power that enables healingor age shifting specifically by increasing the speed of cellular function. This is a very specific power that uses existing cellular function in order to enhance or heal it's target.
When researching Known Users, you should be critical and skeptical, not just use motivated reasoning with a desire to keep as many KU's around as possible. You should also keep in mind the specific capabilities of the power and not simply Ctrl+F and search for 'cells'.
Also, I went and decided to read the Daizenshuu about this. Nowhere does it say that the Namekians regeneration is a result of any 'cell activation' or any kind of a stimulation of existing cell function. In fact, so long as their brains survive, they can regenerate entirely. Which sounds less like 'cell activation' and more of a situation where they just have regenerative abilities that allow them to regrow cells. That's not what Cell Activation is as a power. They can also use this same ability to grow and stretch, which would seem to go beyond the bounds of typical cell activity. So they are very far from
You also re-added the Diclonii, and I seriously don't understand why. I cannot find reference to them as having anything resembling this ability.
It's not how they regenerate. It's how they stretch and grow to giant size.
It's specifically stated that they concentrate their nerves to invigorate their cells in order to expand and contract their bodies. Check out Daizenshuus 2 and 7; those are the sources listed here and here.
Sup Smijes. Hope you are doing well. So, I am about to make a power called Inner Spirit Beast next week which is basically, as the name implies, a combination between Inner Beast and Spirit Animal Connection and I was wondering if you'd perhaps know of any valid users to such a power idea?
Weapon Specification has been added to your user blog and removed from the main space. The power made little sense - a specification only describes the attributes of a thing. I know there is another Specification Power, it is also being Userspace'd.
The problem isn't my understanding of the power, the problem is that weapons have specifications is not a superpower. A specification is just a property of a piece of equipment, having equipment isn't a superpower.
Like, when someone talks about 'specs' on their PC, that's also a specification. I don't have a superpower because I have a certain CPU and graphics card and RAM. Those are just properties of my system.
Hi. I thought you should know that Chronal Anchor's capabilities and description are unfinished.
A fixed point in time is not simply about being immortal. Its about someone or something whose place in the timeline cannot be altered without severe consequences (like the destruction or breakdown of the space-time continuum).
But that doesn't just apply to ones life, as it can also apply to a death that cannot be changed or removed from the timeline.
So the way the power is actually described makes it seem like fixed points are only about being immortal, but there not. And they never fully were.
If a fixed point in time doesn't apply to both life and death, then its not considered a fixed point.
