"Mastery is achieved when 'telling time' becomes 'telling time what to do'."
― Flavor Text of "Telling Time" (Magic: The Gathering)
"This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down."
― One of Gollum's riddles for Bilbo (The Hobbit Ch.5)
"The Time Gem: with it, I can reach back into the primordial past or delve into the far distant future. Nothing that ever was or ever will be can hide from my inspection. And if I find anything which offends, I can modify it to fit my every need or want. Infinity is clay waiting for me to mold it."
― Thanos on the Time Gem (The Thanos Quest)

The power to manipulate time. Sub-power of Space-Time Manipulation. Variation of Universal Force Manipulation.

  • Time/Temporal Arts


Users can create, shape, move, control, interact and manipulate time, the indefinite continued progress of existence and events that occur in an apparently irreversible succession from the past, through the present, into the future, in the general area or for a specific target in various ways, with the most basic of acts revolving around accelerating, slowing, stopping, and even rewinding or looping it. The range of the affected area is proportional to the mastery of the user, with those at higher levels being able affect the entire space-time continuum.

Since "time" exists and flows within "space", the two are interrelated, and by manipulating time, one is also distorting space proportionally. The effects of this relative distortion can vary, however. For example, controlling time of a mere object or person may not affect the space they reside in, whereas twisting the time-stream of an entire region of space can cause the area itself to warp. Additionally, due to time being so closely intertwined with our three-dimensional space, manipulating it might not affect another dimension, such as heaven or hell, in the same way it affects our own.
