And maybe loyalty

The categories are concept, function, mechanism, source, and unfathomable. So what are some examples of each? :slight_smile:

Ok so here it goes- The categories of super powers are concept, function, mechanism, source, and unfathomable. Examples of concept powers are boundary manipulation, subjective reality, and absolute existence. Examples of function are creation, destruction or any type of manipulation. Examples of mechanism are physics manipulation, virtual warping, or causality manipulation. Examples of source would be magic, supernatural dominion, divinity, or lordship abilities. Examples of unfathomable would be logic manipulation, metapotence, or author authority. While loyalty might seem like a superpower and perhaps in some mind’s eyes it is, loyalty is more of a value. What DC character would you say represents loyalty? Remember, especially with the Justice League, each stands for a value.

once again, a category, so what would speed fall under based on the categories?

If you’re questioning “unfathomable”, that would be powers that are beyond understanding, this does not include supernatural. Perhaps another way for you to view it is as such-Biological, Transformational, “Ex Nihilo” or the ability to create something from nothing, Elemental, and Psychic.
