  • I just want to inform you that I have updated the Empowered Physiology article, with the capabilities section improvised. At least I do hope it wouldn't have to be deleted or moved else where.

    • Empowered Physiology users were originally normal people who gained powers later on through scientific or mystical means (hence the "empowered" part), correct ? And the power is originally limited to specific individuals (the ones who were empowered) but may later become a sub-species of its own as the power is passed down to later generations ?

      Just checking I got everything right, since the context/identity is more subtle than most physiologies.

      1. Users were originally normal people who gained powers later on through scientific or mystical means... check.

      2. the power is originally limited to specific individuals (the ones who were empowered) but may later become a sub-species of its own as the power is passed down to later generations... varies.

      Yeah, that's about correct.

    • While Superpower Physiology is mostly about power-level and wealth of abilities, with an open origin including both natural (species) and artificial (empowerment).

      So high-level Empowered technically qualify as Superpower Physiology too, and Homo Superior may also qualify as later-generation Empowered (like Marvel's X Gene, that was an empowerment from the Celestials - unless they retconed that).

      I understand the blurriness of the ability now, seeing how tightly it intertwines with similar ones.


      Homo Superior Physiology :

      "User is a human being that has developed powers and abilities from a variety of causes, such as evolution, genetic experiments, enchantment, having powers bestowed upon them by other beings or sources, through birth, and training to obtain said powers classifying them into superhuman beings."

      After looking closely, HSP does seem to cover Empowered Physiology too.

      Exactly. At least any time I see anyone bringing up something wrong the articles I've posted, I always try to imrpovise them, no matter how minor or major the issues are. However, think of some of the bigger powers like Empowered Physiology as family trees that sprout branches of different types and sub-types. Homo Superior Physiology for example, is a branch that grows twigs that is Homo Magi Superior Physiology, and another which is Transcendent Homo Superior Physiology. Transcendent Homo Magi Superior on the other hand, is a leaf. That's how this is all meant to function. This analogy applies to the other powers too, like Telekinesis sprouting and growing different variations to it and cousins.

    • So Empowered Physiology would be the general tree, which each branch a more specific variant of the concept ?

      Maybe Homo Superior Physiology should be reworked in a way more faithful to its original inspiration then (a human sub-species that naturally possesses supowerpowers like Marvel's mutants, similarly to Homo Magi Physiology for magic) rather than any human possessing superpowers from any source.

      The way their capabilities currently are, EP / HSP overlap so much they are almost indistinguishable.

      Yes, its a general tree. But as for Homo Superior Physiology, I think it should remain the way it is. I won't exactly call them a sub-species, though to be fair, I did some of the information wrong. I mean, they can be a sub-species theoretically, but in the general sense, that won't be the case as their racial stature wasn't entirely changed. That was my bad.

      But I have another idea, how about renaming Empowered Physiology to Empowered Subject Physiology, and maybe, just maybe it'll be much better in addition to rewriting things, but not by much.

    • I think the main issue is that Homo Superior Physiology in its current version has an excessively broad range, which leaves little room for Empowered Physiology to be what it is meant to be.

      And since "Homo Superior" literally means "race of superhumans" (represented by Marvel's iconic Homo Superior inaccuratey called "mutants" - they are evolved, mot mutated), it seems only right that the page would be adjusted to suitably reflect this core identity.

      Well... like I've said, Homo Superior is also used by The Tomorrow People and the Heroes TV series, meaning its no longer part of just one fiction. If it were to be renamed to Superior Human Physiology, that's fine, and Homo Superior Physiology will be an also called name instead. Just so that everybody wins.

    • The Tomorrow People and the "evolved" from Heroes are both a category of humans born with superpowers, right ?

      Yeah, but that's by probability/circumstance.

      But anyhow, what do you think of the article itself now?

    • It looks good, the power is clearly distinct from Superpowered Physiology now. The only issue is that Empowered Physiology and Homo Superior Physiology overlap a lot, and this time it's because HSP encompasses much more than it should.

      At least we can redo Homo Superior Physiology to a limited extent, and change the title, with the name Homo Superior Physiology being put into the also called instead.
