  • Physics Alteration


The user of this ability is capable of violating the natural laws of physics and using the forces for their advantage. This is Cartoon Physics applied to all media to rearrange the reality of that verse maintaining a sense of realism in relation to our world. This, in effect, loosens physical limitations and/or exaggerates capabilities without accounting for the effects of the power with real world physics that allows characters to be able to do acts of heroism and villainy that would be much more difficult or impossible in our reality.
