User can create, shape and manipulate visible light, commonly referred to simply as light, is electromagnetic radiation that is visible to the human eye, and is responsible for the sense of sight.

Primary properties of visible light are intensity, propagation direction, frequency or wavelength spectrum, and polarisation, while its speed in a vacuum (299,792,458 meters per second/186,000 MPS) is one of the fundamental constants of nature. Visible light, as with all types of electromagnetic radiation (EMR), is experimentally found to always move at this speed in vacuum.

In common with all types of EMR, visible light is emitted and absorbed in tiny "packets" called photons, and exhibits properties of both waves and particles. This property is referred to as the wave–particle duality. The study of light, known as optics, is an important research area in modern physics.






  • May be unable to create light, being limited to manipulating only from already existing sources.
  • Users light is affected by everything that all light is, unless they are powerful/skilled enough to overcome these limits:
  • May be overwhelmed by Darkness Manipulation.
  • Since light is a constant the user will have to be able to control any light constructs to keep them from going on forever.

    • The imperfection, advantage, and deciding factor is always the user. I'm with Consus on this one, hands-down.
    • the problem is, you can measure light but you can't measure darkness. Darkness is a word that we have given to the absence or lack of light.
