"Huh, I think you should lead with that next time."
"Yeah. Sorry boss, I can only use it once. Its a one-off."
― James Rhodes and Tony Stark (Iron Man 2)

Also Called

  • Maximum Overdrive
  • One-off Power
  • Last Resort


User can put their power into overdrive, boosting their ability way beyond its limit making it stronger or ignoring its weaknesses; sometimes gaining a sudden boost of stamina, strength, speed and endurance in the process of using the power.

It must be a power that the user already has but boosted beyond its limits or so-called limitations at a cost. After use, the user may face a jeopardizing obstruction such as temporary or permanent loss of their powers, a major setback on their abilities, or a crippling/fatal injury.



  • The user may lose all of their powers and put their physical well-being at risk.
  • In the most extreme cases, the overburst may even kill the user.
