Tom power
Tom (Heroes) causes an ornament to shatter

Power/Ability to:

Cause objects or people to lose cohesion

"A shaft of energy shot out from the eye, bathing him in its glow. The next instant, Carapar shattered into fragments as if he had been made of crystal. Then there was nothing left of him but a pile of glittering dust on the stone floor."
―Narrator, Federation of Fear[[src]]
The power to collapse objects into dust. Not to be confused with Death Inducement.

Also Called

  • Deconstruction
  • Disintegration Rays
  • Matter Disintegration


Users cause targets (whether organic or inorganic material) to lose cohesion in various means. Some can make matter fall part, wipe away target on a molecular/sub-molecular level or even revert matter into pure energy. Regardless of the means, target is reduced to either molecular/sub-molecular dust or energy but not absolutely annihilated.





  • May be triggered involuntary.
  • Full deconstruction may take a long time.
  • Ability may only work to destroy, making reassembly difficult or impossible.
  • Users require concentration or focus to properly aim.
  • Users may not be immune.
  • Ambient Resource Construction can reverse the effects on inorganic objects.
  • May only be able to disintegrate organic or non-organic materials.
  • May require physical contact.
