The power to take on the physiology of a biological creature via contact. Sub-power of Biological Manipulation. Variation of DNA Replication.

Also Called

  • Body Snatching
  • Genetic Absorption/Mirror
  • Physiology Mimicry

Capabilities

The user can mimic properties of a creature's physiology through supernatural means. Alternatively the user’s genetic structure can alter itself to become identical to a biological creature upon contact. Unlike Shapeshifting and DNA Replication the user does not necessarily take on the appearance of the target but rather select parts of their physiological make up. One with this power could touch a spider and climb walls, a fish and breathe underwater, or a bear and gain amazing strength.

Many users can take on whole physiologies by either touching the creature itself or someone who has the physiology as a superpower. Experienced users can mix and match certain aspects of different physiologies gaining a chimera type effect to their own bodies (having multiple genetic qualities at once).
