"You're a singular multidimensional messiah. You're going to rewrite the rules of magic and all the implications of that decision are going to echo forward and backwards across all realities. It's no biggie."
― Loki describing Wiccan's future self (Young Avengers)

Also Called

  • Magical Causality Manipulation
  • Magical Laws/Rules Ascendancy/Transcendence


User has magical powers which transcends the rules under which they operate, making them either the exceptions to those rules or beyond them all together and granting them total dominion over the cause and effects to the rules of magic by their source. They are able to make/modify the rules, allowing them to alter or ignore the conditions and limitations of the magical systems, which can lead them down the path beyond magic itself.




  • The power only applies to magic itself, so users may still need to rely on spells.
  • Users of Mystic Lock may be immune.
