― Jaime Reyes (DC Comics)

The power to enter or leave a state where one has superpowers, while their normal identity normally does not. Variation of Transformation. Weaker version of Super Form.

Also Called

  • Civilian Form (if their super-self is the true form)
  • Empowered Form
  • Empowered Mode
  • Henshin (変身)
  • Power Mode
  • Powered Mode

Capabilities

The user can enter or leave a state where one has superpowers, while their normal identity normally does not. While they may be normal human or normal for their species until they activate this power. They may gain a new costume or may have their body completely change into a new form. Unlike a secret identity, the user loses their powers while outside of this form, and unlike a Super Form, the user is not increasing their power but gaining it. Some users may have powers outside of their Powered Form that's different from their true powers.

Applications

  • Keep their powers hidden in normal form, but unlock them once transformed.
  • May be able to use a partial amount of their power.
  • May be able to transform at will at a higher level.

Associations

Limitations

  • May need a transformation device to transform.
  • May need a phrase to transform.
  • May have a time-limit, damage limit, energy limit or all three, meaning the transformation may undo itself to avoid further damage or if out of energy/time.
  • Risks of being a target while in powerless form.
